I don't know what is going on with me this morning. I've been in such a cheerful mood. Maybe it's the coffee or hazelnut cream added or maybe it's gosh, I really don't know. lol I just know I started the process of making croissants for the first time...watching something on tv documenting LA Riots back in the day and how hip hop played a role during it with my mom and sis...and I don't know...maybe it's this uplifting conversation I had with my mom? Well more like I was listening to her vent, but...I don't know. lol I'mma just enjoy this moment while I can I guess. :)
About the card.
I felt like making art from fanart on here. I just...had that urge to do that for no specific reason really. I think I was just looking through my favorites and notice some pieces I felt like, "Wow this would make a great graphic design" or something. Interestingly enough for this e-card I choose to use Cocoa's drawing she did for me as a gift. XD I love the colors and it's a sunflower. Felt I could create a positive card from it. Then of course I'm on this animate fix thing. I guess my passion for making animations came back. And those who know me...really know me and have known me for a very long time back on my older accounts know or might can remember that a dream of mines was to be an animator. :) Though that dream long sail, but I still enjoy making little animations. :D
Not much to say on how I create it. XD I just drew one bee and make a bunch of duplicate layers of that one bee in diff positions. Haha The wings are just 3 layers as well, but in each frame I had them in different positions. Decided to add the little dot trail for kicks. I thought it was cute. :)
All too often we get so caught up with catching up with time. We forget to stop and enjoy the smaller details in our lives that might seem very insignificant. Might seem like a waste of time, but ya never know. That small detail might leave a timeless impression on ya forever in a good way. :)

God bless and have a nice day. :D
