One Powerful Hour/Theme Thursday








ATC










The challenge today on One Powerful Hour is "Love (fill in the blank)."  The idea of the One Powerful Hour Challenge is to see what you can come up with in one hour using their prompt. I chose "Love Triangle," thinking of the famous literary love triangles like Darcy, Wickham and Elizabeth Bennett. Or Heathcliff, Cathy and Edgar Linton.

The challenge today on Theme Thursday is "Game Pieces." I chose face cards (hearts of course) - which is one of my favorite things to alter. I love the graphics on the face cards.

I am currently reading an old english novel (The Mayor of Casterbridge) that is filled with love triangles - there's Mr. Henchard, Mr. Newson and Susan. Then there's Lucetta, Susan and Mr. Henchard. There's also Mr. Farfrae, Mr. Henchard and Lucetta. And Lucetta, Elizabeth Jane and Mr. Farfrae. I'm not even 3/4's through the book yet. It reads like a Puccini opera and is hugely entertaining. Life is so complex in books like that - oy vay! It makes me really appreciate the simplicity of my own life :)
