Simon Sez… Warm Me Up!

This week’s Simon is EBSQ artist Amanda Makepeace. The theme she has chosen for her turn as Simon is “Warm Me Up!” Amanda said this of her choice: “I thought it would take me longer to come up with a theme, but with my hands so cold it’s difficult to type, there was only one theme to suit the week. Warm Me Up!!

This is open to all mediums, limit 3 entries. Lot’s of possibilities here…could be images of some place warm, or images of things to warm me up, or even abstracts of colors to thaw my frozen fingers! Be creative!

Here’s my contribution. Doesn’t that steaming hot water look inviting?

Oh, and the challenge ends this Sunday at midnight. I’ll pick the winner next Monday while sipping on my HOT coffee.”

Simon Sez… Treats!

This week’s Simon is EBSQ artist Alma Lee. The theme she has chosen for her turn as Simon is “treats”. She explained the reason for her choice this way: “Recently I was “strongly” encouraged to paint a couple of cupcakes for my nieces newly decorated room. It has been done in cupcakes. I can’t even grasp the concept of why you would want food on the the wall of a young girls room but none the less, it got me to thinking. So Simon says treats of any kind… Rules: Length: now-12/13/09 , limit 5.
Lets have em!  Here is Libby’s Cupcake to get things started.
