There were two quotes that inspired me for this week's IF theme.
The first one is:
"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." - Frederick Douglass
And the second:
"Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong." - Winston Churchill
Another very quickly finished piece, completed within about two hours. If I hadn't gotten it done this evening, I am afraid I would have missed participating this week. So needless to say, I wish I could have spent more time on it, but isn't that always true.
I have nearly completed the cards for my Chimerical Critter ATC swap and will be posting those within a day or so. I originally misunderstood the instructions and thought I was to make six cards of the same animal. Instead, I was supposed to make one each of the animal combinations proposed by my swapmates. I'm glad I reread the instructions before I got started. It was much more fun to create six different critters than to do six versions of one "toubster". I will be receiving six toubsters in the mail from the other participants at the end of the swap. Fun!
