Citron turquoise

“And so with the sunshine 
and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, 
just as things grow in fast movies,
 I had that familiar conviction that
 life was beginning over again with the summer.” 

Yes with Summer of Colors
being here my 'arty' life has taken 
a fun lane again :)
The fun is going to run for 
six weeks with six exciting color
I have decided to put all the six
prompts on a single 
sheet so as to create 
something which denotes
the Summer of 2013...

Now this week's colors are
citron green and turquoise !!
i totally totally love
the combination...
and here is what I did

...a birdie

with a twinkle in her eye...

 hope in her gaze...

and a sweet summer song in her heart !!

 Are you wondering my friends 
what's that on the branch now???

Well that's my favorite silver Pandora bracelet
which happens to have some citron green and turquoise beads !!
Now what do you call that...
a simple coincidence
my LOVE for the colors :)

Yes I have a news to share here
is a great mom's online bazaar and community
also encouraging and promoting mompreneurs,
mommy bloggers and inspirational moms
and my blog
Beneath my heart...Art
has won 
"Mommy blogger competition"
organised by them !!!

and this is what the kids with special needs 
did this week

I called their tree...
