You guys are good!

Too bad I'm not giving a prize! "Roll Tide Roll" is correct. Since the 5x5's are soooo hot right now and it seems the coordinating designs on each canvas are even hotter with this size - the juices had to flow to come up with some "original" stuff! But I did - I hope no one doubted me!


Of course the above design is a fav-O-rite and I always seem to work it in some how!


This design, as well as the "tide", were new.


And to tell you all the truth - I'm not a sports fan {at all}! So, I have surprised myself with how well I like these! It really amazes me what all you can do with this size canvas.

And as promised - the "shower" painting from the last post! I have to tell you, that the same person received it that got the "roll tide roll" - sneaky, huh? Jennifer, were you shocked???


A little side view! I couldn't resist using the dot roses!


I love these colors together!! I should have taken a picture of all the fabric swatches so you can see it all!! I normally do not paint the background the same color as the wall - BUT I really thought this painting needed the pink!! And I had a paint chip so I used a shade darker.

Picture from the Elwell's blog.

Yes, I lifted this picture - I hope they do not mind! But it was such a good picture!!

Everything you do is cute. Too bad we aren't Alabama fans. I have one Ole Miss alum, one Miss state alum and I got my PhD from UT...

I love your work, and you.

Absolutley LOVE the Roll Tide Roll! I'm not a big football fan either but Hubs is a huge Alabama fan & so far I have managed to confine the football stuff to the office! What a wonderful thing for my office. I'm trying for gameday girlie :)

We've never met...I stumbled across your blog through Bethany (Posch) Arnold's blog. I love looking at your paintings & hope to own one for my daughter one day! I also enjoy reading your posts...your children are adorable and have been on my prayer list several times. My husband and I have one child & on days when I start to feel overwhelmed with family and work I sometimes think of your posts and remind myself that I've got nothin' on you. God knew exactly what he was doing when he made you the mother of 4 children & they are truly blessed!
