Here is mine ......and here is Cole's Bee

boy oh boy...the weekends sure seem to fly by....Cole and I had some fun working on a project for Daddy...a cute little bee...cause he is sweet as honey....lol....

I love watching Cole create and he was so proud to add this handmade gift to Daddy's presents....he is so sweet....

I also worked on this "something old" piece for MMM this week....Thanks to Terri over at Pringle Hills Studio....I used this cute girl with writing on her mind!!!

Terri has all kinds of fun freebies you can use in art....and since I only work on new illustrations...the theme was so out of my comfort zone...so I was inspired by this special image.....with some of my butterfly illustrations and some fun backgrounds.....

Hope you enjoy her!!!

Happy Monday!!!

What a sweet little bee, and so is the little Honey who created it!!! Cole did a fabulous job of creating a very special gift for his Dad. Oh, Diana, he is such a Sweetie Pie! I'm sure your husband loved his bee.

And, thank you for using my image to create your "something old" piece! I'm very honored that you chose her to make your pretty piece. Your card is awesome!!! Thank you for such a nice "mention". Hugs, Terri xoxo

Diana, you know how much I love your illustrations! But, you've been outclassed by your son. I love Cole's cups and that Tee has to be one of your original designs, doesn't it? WTG the Evans's!!

Your Cole is adorable and talented like Mommy. I love your mixed-media...I NEED a computer with Photoshop! Your work is really stunning.

Kathy said...

Both your entry and Cole's are wonderful, Diana. Cole is precious and such a lucky little boy to have a mommy who encourages his creativity.

Faye said...

Love the old typewriter on her mind, Diana. But the bee art that Cole created really wows me!

Bella Sinclair said...

OOooh! I love that MM piece! The typewriter on her HEAD! Brilliant! I wonder if that gives her a pounding headache.

And awwwwwwwwwww, be still my heart. Cole is a doll! And his little bee is just as wonderfully done as yours!!!! I'm sure Daddy just LOVED them both. Lucky fellow. :)

Mr. Spoqui said...

Those BEES ARE STUNNING! sorry Diana Evans, but I love Cole's Bee... :) and the collage is wonderful too! saludos, Mr Spoqui

Kristin said...

Okay really, every time I see that kid I wonder if he can get any cuter - and then he creates a bee for Daddy - so, so, so adorable! I bet Dad was was happy!
Wonderful MMM piece too - I will have to visit Pringle Hills as I LOVE that image! The butterflies in the foreground really makes it pop.
Happy Monday, Kristin xo
