A Birthday and Blue

These are for a swap called Tangled Up In Blue.  The idea is to have a mainly blue card.  Don't know if it was the "tangled up" concept or because it was a dreary day, but the whole thing seemed to turn rather pensive.  Interesting how that happens, huh?

Faded Dreams
Dreams - once so vibrant and alive, over time unfulfilled, fade into wafts of smoke as they evaporate..sometimes forever.

Faint Hearted
Our hearts reach out again and again. Too often rebuffed and left alone. We try again only to suffer the same fate. After time, the heartbeat is barely discernable.

Adrift On The Sea Of Time
TIME - never enough or too much. Most of us have at one time or another felt adrift and our schedules tossed upside down by unforseen happenings. We feel amazed that we even keep out head above water.

Trapped By Our Own Words
The words left our lips before they were adequately considered. Too late. They are out there now for all to hear and judge. One can only hope for kindness and understanding.

Then, my final Birthday ATC card - October.  I kind of used the technique for abstract gel medium.  I just didn't paint the whole background.  I liked the collage pieces so much I didn't want to cover them up!  The title is Pumpkin Pumpkin.

That's it for today!
