Friends Help You Fly

Friends Help You Fly, Notecard, 4" x 5.5"
© 2008 Fannie Narte

Diana is a talented artist, blogger, writer, and illustrator who started a new blog, "Daily Art Stop," which includes a challenge on Wednesdays. Yesterday was her first challenge on that blog. The theme for her challenge is "Friendship." Most of my work centers around the theme of friendship and participating was an easy decision. However, I wanted to think outside of the box and create something different. The idea to use one of my images and create a set of notecards was inspired by Diana's challenge. The Friends Series is in the works for my Etsy shop.

Isn't that what challenges were meant to do? To inspire us to think outside of the box? In doing so, I realized that possibilities were standing before me all along, but I didn't see them.

Ideas are spilling all over my studio floor. I can make my art and my words available as notecards, and in time for Christmas Etsy shoppers and gift giving.

Thanks for helping me fly, Diana!

Help Diana fly. Join Diana in her first challenge. Pop on over to her blog and find out how easy it is to participate.

Friends Help You Fly! That phrase defines friendship in all its forms, doesn't it?

Friends really do help you fly!
