Inspiration Avenue: Wishes

First, I want to apologize for the lack of images this week. I realize you couldn't see them and neither could I. The server where I keep my images was down for several days. Then my internet connection went down, so I was unable to visit anyone or create any posts. All in all, it's been a rather frustrating few days.

This week's Inspiration Avenue challenge was issued by Jenn.



Here is my "Wishes" entry. The sentiment reads: "We often confuse what we wish for with what is." ~Neil Gaiman

This is an ATC I created using magazine images and scraps of scrapbook paper. I colored the edges of the ATC with a gold leafing pen.

Ha! What a quote to think about, eh? :)
Have a fabulous weekend.

Terrie Purkey said...

Sweet - I have yet to join the ATC craze...gotta draw the line somewhere! This quote makes me think....

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Thanks for the picture-less explanation. At least I know I was in good company not being able to see things. This is a great ATC.

voodoo vixen said...

and I thought it was just me that couldn't see them!! ;) Love the ATC... maybe that is the way to go to get myself back to the scrap desk... little ATC's to wet the appetite? ;)

Julia Dunnit said...

Ahhhhhh. I take it back. I was blaming iPad. Or interpad as my sweet mother in law called it while we were on holiday! Nice ATC, i rarely ise magazines because i spend too long browsing for the right fonts! Silly huh!

Monica said...

So that is a server error. I always wondered what it was. hope all goes well for you from now on.

Halle said...

Lovely quote and ATC!
As for your photo issues...I was briefly convinced it was Google Chrome that was the problem then I ran Firefox...same issue. I know you hate the Google machine but apparently I've become part of the collective. :)

Very appropriate for "wishes", like it!

Judy said...

Yes, this is a quote to make us think/ponder.
Makes you think how much we rely in being "connected"!!

now that's a thought provoking quote and very nice ATC E...I miss making ATCs and more!

we too are having some computer issues trying to transfer files to a back up drive (so out of my realm)... all I know is the computer is so slow I can bearly use it

Hope you had a nice Friday and that your computer problems are cleared up!
