One of the themes for the March swap at the Vancouver Artist Trading Card Group is "Pegasus". Pegasus was a winged stallion (usually white) of Greek mythology. My hand-carved horse stamp doesn't have wings, but we'll call that artistic licence. The background is a gelli print.

This card is for my grand-niece, Sloane, who will be one in March. We learned these "Fun Letters" at the Westcoast Calligraphy Society meeting in January, so this is my "homework" I'll be taking to the February meeting for show and tell. There is nothing like a deadline for inspiration!

These gelli prints were done on some paste paper I made years ago. The paper was sitting, like many paper experiments, in my studio/office awaiting inspiration. These prints can now go into the world with my love.
Those trees are showing up again. I might as well give away all of my rubber stamps except for this tree. LOL

Here's another completed journal page inspired by Joanne Sharpe's "Draw Your Awesome Year 2014" class. I'm loving the class but I think I'd be happier with this page as three separate pages in a smaller journal.
This vignette was inspired by a book I finished recently: Creative Lettering: Techniques and Tips from Top Artists, compiled by Jenny Doh.

Last week I joined some lovely ladies at our church for a UFO group meeting. No, this did not involve viewings of Unidentified Flying Objects, but rather the completion of UnFinished Objects. All crafters have them, you know you do.
I finished about a dozen bookmarks penned with the words from my favorite Linnea Good hymn: Make a Joyful Noise, based on Psalm 100.
