Cactus Monday!

OK...here I am! Amazingly, I made a little index card with watercolor pencil, and regular colored pencil, strands of sparkly silver sequins, and some cut out flowers. I call it "Looking At Your Cactus With Glitter in Your Eyes"! This cactus has fantasy flowers, and it glows and glitters because of your deep love for it! Happy Monday everyone!

I think of you (and MOM)each time I water my little pot filled with a few cacti....I started them from seed two years ago...they are very interesting to watch grow. I will need your expertise when I am finally brave enough to re-pot them. Keep your eyes open...I will try to post a photo of them soon!
I also will try to come up with a succulent bird house. I also bought a magazine last week that has a lot of really cool succulent ideas...will maybe show you those too! think of you often friend.

That's kinda cool...

I have a whole stack of index cards here that I've been thinking of doodling on... don't really have any immediate ideas of what I'd doodle though.

very nice...

Claude- Do some doodling and then show us your work!!! You will enjoy...you could even stick a pencil and index cards in your pocket during your travels each day!!! Portable fun!

Margaret Ann- thx for the welcome! I hope I will be able to keep up, but it is convenient that it is on a Monday and I have all weekend to come up with something! Your work is absolutely stunning!!! There are no words to describe it really. Just awesome, amazing, and impossible for most mortal beings!!!

It looks great. Don't you wish a cactus would come with all those colors on one? I'd sure have to cut down on my collection!
