Happy Cactus Monday!!!

A very strange thing happened after I drank a cup of Prickly Pear tea this evening! I got out a sketchbook and my circle maker tool, and a couple of pencils, sat down, and started to draw....

Please take note of that sexy cactus mug created by none other than our Cactus Leader, Teri, of Painted Daisies! I found this mug in her online shop and have loved it ever since!

So here is the strange thing that came out of my having that cup of tea in a magical mug...

I drew it on white paper, then daughter (my trusted sidekick) took it to Photoshop and did a little digital color on it for me...which made it scorching hot...

Thanks for all of your responses to my doll post (previous post)...it was a lot of fun to see and hear about everyones dollies!!!

I hope it cools down in the Southern states soon. This has been a brutal summer so far. Love your sketch. HCM.

First, I have to mention that when I saw "prickly pear tea" I went outside and stared at my prickly pear. I will admit to working up a thirst for tequilla, but not tea...

But I have to admit that I like the artwork. Very charming.

We have our own desert microclimate right here, hot and dry as can be. If we get to stay here, succulents will figure prominently in my garden next year! I like your animation, Julie.

wow, i like the illuminated drawing which looked like scorching hot really. actually, love the sketch already, but your daughter's idea to put some color to make it hot really enhanced the theme.

thanks for stopping by my blog :)
