Sundays lately have been a rest time for my family, but I still feel a draw to my work. So I’ve been working on some background sets in my spare time. This is one of those sets from a surreal series. I like the color palette for this one & may use it for another.
The seasons are changing rapidly around here but somehow this weekend winter managed to hang on. Despite the cold temps these surreal scenes of the entrance of spring managed to creep into my dreams and designs. Spring is very close around here, and you can tell by the trees. You are starting to see little bits of green pop up here and there. Soon even the cold will not be able to stop it. Everything will come into bloom. I’ve always liked the change of seasons around here for that reason, and the beginning of March around here usually signals spring. —Usually.

I decided it best to share two designs with you this weekend instead of just one.
There’s good reason behind it, as I am working on a summer collection.
Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend. From our hearts to yours.
It’s not often we do these compilation-type postings, but this week we have to make an exception.
Your charming lady host (Daydreams) is a teensy bit under-the-weather.
Daydreams wanted to talk about the Summer Solstice that just happened this Friday, and how we often celebrate the changing of seasons here at CardCastles. (The Fall Equinox, The Winter Solstice, The Spring Equinox, and The Summer Solstice.) Nature had other plans this weekend.
These are some of the most popular artworks from or inspired by summers passed:
