Jeweled Mice in the Sky

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by.  I missed last week because of the holiday.  Me and my kids went up to Illinois for a family reunion. Left on Friday went 640 miles, 13 hours and came back on Monday!  I think I did not get over the long trip until Saturday!  So tired!  

I did finally get last weeks twinchie and inchie done...this week lol.  But I have to tell you it was all worth missing the week to see my family.  I got to see family that I had not seen in a year and family that I had not seen in 20 years!  Coolest thing was reconnecting and finding out that my 24 year old and my nieces 11 year old had alot in common!  They both love to draw and both love Anime.  I just loved that!  

Where was I?  Oh yea, last weeks work. Last week over at 2x2x2 the theme was Jewel.

My first thought was what woman doesn't love a beautiful jewel on her finger?  Even though I don't really like emeralds or gold I decided to make an emerald ring in gold.  LOL  In truth, the only reason I did it in the emerald color was because the green delicas looked so pretty!

Also last week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme was Mice.  I like this one because CHEESE!  I mean I am not a fan of mice, I have a cat and a dog who both love mice.  But I love cheese!  LOL  So this is what I came up with.

Now that I am up to date, this week over at EIM the theme is sky.

Here is a early Morning picture from somewhere on our trip up to Illinois.  I have this as the wallpaper on my phone.

Lovely afternoon sky in Illinois at my brother's house.

This is a late night picture of the Arkansas sky by my house.  So interesting how the same sky can look so different in so many places and at so many times.  I do love the different colors that mother nature gives us.  True beauty.  Now, my inchie this week is nothing as beautiful as these but it is a dark and kinda moody night sky.

This is supposed to represent how the night sky and the earth meet in the distance.  See the full moon and the stars? Yea that is what those are supposed to be LOL.

Hey, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to see some great artwork and why not jump in and give them a try.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you all have a blessed and creative week!
