Texture Tuesday - Hope - Free & Easy eDition

mouse over to see the before - textured with Aulneau from the Test Kitchen - July Collection


Dear friends,

Welcome to another Free & Easy Texture Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by....and sharing your beautiful textured art!

I snapped today's little lovelies the other night while out for a stroll with John. I love cone flowers.... so full of hope... Don't you think? As for the quote..... YES... PLEASE..... wondeful words from Kobi Yamada.

I have a lovely new trio of textures today. Take a peek......

Texture Lovin' Listers, check your inbox... the download link was delivered Monday evening. 

Gmail users.....

be aware...there are changes coming. Gmail will soon be sending list emails (like the texture lovin' list and any ecourse lists as well) directly past your inbox to a new folder called promotions. This means you will miss class updates and free texture emails. To prevent this new behaviour, click on the promotions tab, find a recent email from me and drag it to your primary folder. A question will pop up asking if you wish to receive all future emails from Kim...say Yes and you should be right on track.

If you are not on the texture lovin' list... click HERE to sign up and start receiving freebies right away.


Let's dive in.... 

The link up will remain open until July 27th.

I love purple cone flowers also. Great quote. Hope is certainly as important as anything else we may have, sometimes more so.
Very pretty and thank you for the new textures. So generous! xo

I have no idea why my submission turned out to look like a negative! Just one of those days, I guess! :-) Your photo is lovely (as always). You're always such a great source of inspiration.

I am also a fan of cone flowers -- and you captured them in such a way that it invites you to take another look and stay awhile..
And the quote is VERY true.. Your in my prayers and thoughts sweet friend..
Thanks again Kim..

You know I fired through this post earlier in the week and then came back to really read it. I cycled through the link to Ben pics ... oh my goodness how you have captured that boy. Soulful eyes, significant thought, light just right, and my fave ... is the lolly-gagging tongue and high tail as he is running toward you ... too good. Must ask ... what is your fave??
It is good to hear the news on John. I pop in to check on what's up and am relieved to hear of his brother and the match. Boy ... this has been one tough road. I'm thinking and praying the digression is just pure exhaustion over anything else. Who can keep up perky when things hurt, and they continue to poke and prod and ... just one more treatment. Bless him. Its such a mental game, I think, this cancer treatment road. Your hopeful eyes, your loving whispers, your silent presence is his world ... and you have been good. Be kind to yourself, but stay tight to that gentle man. I have no doubt you just want to lie down for 48 hours and just sleep. You are handling all this with such grace and love Kim...your quiet sweet life in the country will return soon enough with blessings by the truckload. I wish you much love and strength!
