6 Decorated Cones-One For Each Week In The Summer Of Color.

I'm involved in the Summer Of Color challenge.

I've decided to make

one cone each week of the Challenge.

This week it was yellow,aqua blue,and a dash of hot pink, for any art form You submit.
Thinking of My Parents this Fathers Day.Dad's now 83 Mom passed in 1998 at 66 years old.
That's Me and Dad in the photo below 3 years ago,before My bariatric Surgery.
He's a wonderful Dad :) 
Happy Father's Day to My Daddy and to Your's too.

Elephangaroo Ramunda said...

I love your idea! I've never made a cone before, you've inspired me to give it a try.

First, I apologize for not visiting last week, but time got away from me. Your idea of cones is wonderful and I look forward to seeing all of them. Lucky you that your dad is still alive. I was raised by grandparents and they are both now gone.

Second, thank you for letting me know my link didn't work. When I tried to remove it, I couldn't get the removal tool to work.

Kristin said...

Hi Denise!
You are so sweet to ask if I'm creating this year! I hope so, but I may not have the time. Fingers crossed, I'll get some art in the Summer :) xoxo

Oh Denise, your father is precious and LOOK at your eyes! What a beauty you are! And what creative fun to engage in for these lazy and beautiful days of summer....maybe LAZY on my part, for I read you are busy with the grands! So wonderful that they have YOU to watch over them instead of having strangers do it. BRAVO!

Thank you sweet one for coming to visit me out here in rainy Minneapolis! From your Pico Rivera friend, Anita

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
