You can get "rusty" if you don't get any sleep!!!

owls

Everyday I say that I will try to get to bed early...and every night I get into my work and before I know it...it's like 2:00 in the morning....so I think this piece is a cute little reminder that it is wise to get to bed before midnight once and a while...

I created this as inspired by the Three Muses this week....I didn't use anything rusty...but I love these rusty colours...and I used one of my original stamp designs. This owl is one of my favorite stamps.

Happy Wednesday!!!

I will be offline for a few days working on my latest book at the beach...so I will visit you all when I get a chance!!!

Thank you for your visits and thank you for leaving me comments...they really make my day!!!

Amen to that! I am like you and stay up waaaay too late. I just find that I am most creative at night when it is quiet and still, don't you?

Love your rusty piece. Enjoy the beach and coming up with your new book! See you when you get back :)
