Today is the last post for the A to Z April Challenge and I am closing with
X, Y and Z.
X is for (e)xplore - x is a definite challenge, so felt that when we explore, x often marks the spot where we end up.
Y is for YES
and Z is for Zest
The challenge is done and I completed well over 40 art tags for it. It has been fun and at times challenging to complete the cards each day.
Here are all the cards I created, stored now on rings.

Hard to believe it is almost the end of April.
Here are a few things I have been working on this past week.
Colour Me Positive
This week at LuLu Art the focus was on how art heals. I chose not to use the quote posted as I have always liked Picasso's words. The extra challenge was to use hearts.
52 Card Pick-Up
I finally caught up with this weekly ATC challenge - Bold, Moment, Notorious
We are almost at the end of the A to Z April Challenge. I have enjoyed it and actually created well over 40 tags so far.
Here are several from this week.
I also created a tag (and a carved stamp) for the ABC Wednesday Challenge:
Have a wonderful weekend!
Linking also with:
Paint Party Friday
Express Your Creativity
Inspire Me Monday

Today for the A to Z April Challenge, W gets the nod.
W is for Wonder
and two art tags that seem opposites, but really mean that we need to be filled with wonder in all we do.
As I was creating these cards, the words of the old hymn "I Wonder as I Wander" played in my head.
As we wander, let us remember to wonder at all we see.

This week at ABC Wednesday, P gets centre stage.
P is for Penguin.
Here is the stamp I carved and art tag I created for P.
Be sure to check here to see what others did for P this week.
Time once again to share our workspaces and what we are working on for WOYWW - the brainchild and weekly meme hosted by Julia Dunnit at Stamping Ground.
Here's my dining room table/carving station after I carved the penguin and tested it.
I realized today why I carve where I do - I need to sit down to carve and I don't have a chair or stool in my art/craft room. I stand when I paint or do mixed media.
Here is my art table - after preparing a canvas and craft board this afternoon.
I collect a lot of quotes - I have so many small journals with them. Two quotes I wanted to place on something more permanent than my journal ar to the left"
"Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year." Ralph W. Emerson

Today for the A to Z April Challenge - S is the focus.
S is for SHINE
Shine is my OLW - here is the canvas I created to remind me this year of what I need to do.
And what we all must do:
Here are two tags with quotes:
