Sunday Postcard Art - Time

Oh boy, I had so much fun making my time piece for this challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art! I have called my piece Time Gone By. No kidding, where is the time going, the older I get the faster it goes. Although I was warned of this I didn't think it was possible, but it is true. We should never wish time to go any faster as you will soon learn you are wishing for it to slow down.
Happy Sunday everyone!
Thanks for looking and thanks for a great challenge.

Atc's for ColorGroupie partners

Red & Black for February!

Again the scans are terrible. Blah!!!

Aqua & Royal Blue for Jan.

The colors didn't turn out well in the scans.

I know everyone has receive there atc's for Jan. & Feb. in my Color Groupie group so it is safe to post them. I am being cheap and sending two months at a time, instead of one due to the rising cost of postage. It is certainly not getting any cheaper for us swappers.
