What a day, seems like ALL my days are crazy these days. Take today for example, I get home from the grocery store to find my sewing room all in a mess and Curt standing there with needle and thread hanging from his mouth. Better yet, take a look at this photo I took. Ain’t he something! If I didn’t’ love cows so much I might just have to sell him…..NOT! Here’s his explanation….
Curt saw me making some patches for the holes in my work shorts so he thought he’d needed to try something. Took my scraps and made a quilted banner of letters that just happen to spell out CURT. He is always trying to find ways to promote himself. hehe
You can tell he is getting up in age his eyes look all crazy from doing all that close up work. Good thing he has glasses! Oh and did you notice what he did to all his spots? Had then Zentangled, thought they’d go good with the quilt theme and all. My on my that Curt is some cow…..……my card….
The quilted bg is a gelli print with added doodle lines. Drew Curt and added his Zentangles at his request. Coloring done with copics.
Well, have to go pick up some cartridges for a pool tomorrow, will return soon. Hope everyone is having a super day.......TFL :0)

You and your fun cards have such a way of making people smile. Your artistic ability and imagination are over the top. This is awesome. Love that patchwork you created with your gelli print and the " Curt" patchwork letters.

Every week as I go to check out the gallery I always have a thought as to what you and Curt might be up to. This week I had Curt all tangled up in thread with pins sticking out of his mouth. You see I didn't give his sewing skills enough credit and I apologize. By the way Curt's cousin chorus line is still selling golf balls at the side of our house on the golf course.
