New Postcard Design- Are you ready for the Summer?



Flying along the Beach. Are you ready for the summer! This is a new postcard that I will be sending out.
 I have been out of commission for a few months due to pain,surgery, etc. Sorry I have missed on blogging and connecting with people and seeing what everyone is up to! Getting on the computer was a big chore and only once in a while I would be able to say "like"but not much else....  But, when I felt I could sit by this computer -little by little I was able to get a new website up (which I was building on for a year already! and with help from my husband ) and work on this postcard before I had this last surgery.

  My recovery has been slow going and I am always thinking I can do more than I can. :D Each day is better. I kept busy by sketching a comic that I wanted to do for my kids. Maybe I will post it so you can check it out. It was an idea I had for a book. I just had to keep sketching to pass the time keep from going stir crazy after the surgery.

I just added color to them.

So I introduce to you: Buttons and Stinky
written and illustrated by me;)


 But, I would like to say I am back and ready to show all I am still here and ready to start any new project that might come my way! :) and I look forward to seeing what everyone is up to or just if you stop by please say hi and let me know you visited. :D

  3. I love this! I love the combination of realism and those bold lines and colors. So fun and full of energy. And of course lots of bonus points for the cute puppy! It's got a crazy angle to it but it totally works and is full of energy!

    I am so sorry to hear you have been under the weather. I've just signed up for emails (don't know why I hadn't sooner) and if you can post once in a while, I bet people will say nice and encouraging things! Which is always nice, I find. ;)
