Welcome to Friday

Please tell me I am not the only one who doesn't know what day of the week it is?!? I have to look at my phone every day for confirmation:)

Well, it is Friday and I am back with another check in for PaintPartyFriday.

We are home from being out west and once I finished getting my art/scrap/creative room put back together, I able to sit down and paint. I needed a couple of thank you notes so I got out the watercolors. I have seen an example of a card where they cut the painting into strips so tried that with the blue flwoers.


And, this cactus was painted just using lines.

I had fun with both of them. 

This week I also was able to complete a scrapbook layout of our Covid 19 porch photo. A photographer was offering free photos of families on their porch so we asked him to take one of us. 


I used older papers that I had and added extra paint splatters and more. This was a fun one to create.

I hope everyone enjoys a safe and healthy Memorial Day weekend. This year is just flying by!

Be sure to stop over at PaintPartyFriday for amazing inspiration!

Thank you for visiting!

Love the idea of a porch page. And your artwork made it really special. I don't know what day it is until I get on the computer since we weren't going anywhere. Now that we are loosening up a bit and have appointments, it will be dicey. Happy PPF

Love it all! I hear you about the day of the week. If Trevor weren't doing school via distance learning (with different classes meeting on different days), I wouldn't have a clue what day it is.

Lovely porch art. I'm always forgetting what day it is even though I've checked first thing.

I hear you regarding what day of the week it is, my Mom calls me most days asking the very same. Beautiful thank you cards I really do love the cactus but the journal page displaying your family porch photo surely is my fav. Happy PPF Tracey.

my favorite piece is the first flower. I like it a lot.
Remembering what day it is became a problem when I retired. Nowadays I have to rely to what program is on what channel :) And if the library is open or not. I went to my daughter this Thursday without having a clue if was a holiday. :) :)
