The Blues


I thought it would be fun to see my blue ABC/ATC's so far.
I'm having such a blast with this series trying to keep them all in shades of blue!
This week's "N" will have to go in the next batch.
Click here to see the blog and the cards by the other ladies. 
This post counts for Blooming Tuesday and Animal Wednesday!

  5. Thanks everyone! I just put the link to the ATC site so you can see all the cards that have been done. Such diversity!
    Some folks are doing themes, mine happens to be trying to stay in the blue zone.
    These are scans of prints, so unfortunately they're a bit fuzzy.

  23. My, these are just the kind of blues I LOVE! Then again, I'm pretty much in love with all hues of blues... I especially adore your indigo bunting! So gorgeous! (^_^)

  24. How creative you are! I think these are lovely...all those wonderful shades of blue in such varying subjects really connect with me. One day, I would like to own a painting in those shades of blue, just because the differing colours are so spiritual and restful to me. My favourite is the Fox...he is just so wonderful!

    These are really inspiring...thanks for showing them!

  29. Hello :)

    It's very beautiful here and I don't know how I haven't spent more time here in the past.

    I guess it might have something to do with that saying... so many blogs and so little time ;)

    Thank you again for being a part of the creative endeavour. I very much like what you have chosen to contribute.
    It's very exciting seeing everyone's interpretation of the theme.

    take care
    be well
