Q&L Challenge 20

I have an eye infection, nothing serious but very very annoying which has kept me from visiting as many of your lovely Blogs as i normally visit. If you haven’t had any comments from me it’s because i have to rest my eyes for a few days, normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Hello to my new Followers, thank you for popping by and deciding to follow, nearly at the magic 100, thinking of what to do to celebrate!

Over at the Craft Barn the latest Challenge is to use the words Destiny or Gift, haven’t been able to research much to find a quote or lyric so instead have made two digital iCards one for each word.

Q&L Destiny F Oct 2014

Q&L Destiny B Oct 2014

The above iCard sized digital creations have been created using Craft Artist Professional software. The link takes you to their You Tube channel where you can find their tutorials if you are interested.

The above iCards are for the word Destiny. They read:

“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be truly happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”

Albert Schweitzer

My mind is on using tea bags at the moment so chose the theme of a Tea Room to best show how to serve a good cup of tea.

Q&L Gift front Oct 2014

Q&L Gift Back Oct 2014

Been playing with blending images into the background, above is the result.

The face is one i drew a couple of weeks ago, i am not good at drawing but i think she looks great blended into the background.

For the word Gift i found this quote:

“In the tapestry of life, we’re all connected. Each one of us is a gift to those around us, helping each other be who we are, weaving a perfect picture together.”

Anita Moorjani

The sheep are representing the tapestry and weaving of life, the flowers and bees represent Nature and the face represents Human Beings. We are all interconnected and i love this particular quote very much.

Hope you enjoyed your visit today, thanks for dropping by.
