Tuesday Night & MMM "Stars"

First off - a sunrise from last week! I love watching the sun come up (almost as much as I love still being in bed and missing it!)


Can't think of a good post title but today I received my August postcard for the Calendar Girl exchange. This one is by Sharon Young and she went in a completely different direction considering the inspiration is this calendar picture.

When I first saw it on the CG blog I did a bit of double-take but as soon as I read Sharon's blog I "got it"!! Having had sons I really like the steam engine connection as there was a stage there where I was a bit of expert on steam trains! We even took some trips on steam trains and discovered their real (as opposed to theoretical) appeal. Note to my Mum - do you remember that Fremantle Christmas trip??? I was within days of giving birth to Zach and we took my niece Jasmine (then 5), nephew Jarrad (then 3) & son Josh (then 2) on a special Christmas steam train trip that involved a party and a visit from Father Christmas down at Fremantle. Such good memories! (PS An amazing amount of work went into Sharon's postcard and I just love it!!)

I am loving Kelly Rae's book and already feel confident recommending it - she is one special woman and I just love her spirit and honesty (in addition to her art!). So hope she agrees to come to Australia to teach in the next couple of years!

Bit busy here tonight as my sister arrives for a visit tomorrow so these are my entries for the "Stars" theme over at Mixed Media Monday - all are ATCs I have made previously! I love stars - I think they symbolise hope!
