You Had Me At MOON...Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday!

An Autumn Moon    copyright 2010
Today when I was popping by some of my favorite blogs an awesome post over at Rose Hill Designs captured my attention...her adorable moon illustration! I LOVED It!  And at that point I knew that I had to toss a moon or two, three...heck I'm tossing a barrel full of moons into this weeks linky over at Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday.  Just about everything I create has a moon hiding somewhere in the painting...or in some cases it's in full moon view.  Here's a trip down Moon-memory lane with some of my fave moonshine minis!  






I'll stop here, but I could go on and on about the moon!  
Oh, Mr. Toast, you definitely had me at MOON, thanks for the creative linky!
(P.S. Sorry about the double dose of posting today...just couldn't resist that silly moon)
Pop By Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday to see more awesome and creative moonbeams!

OMG how many moons! :) I love them all but my fave have to the the second image with sun and moon, quite traditional but i can imagine this on plates and the cat on the fence with the moon in the background. I think it's the cheesy grin on the cats face which makes him look like he is either up to or done something naughty. All the other are fab too and i love the use of your colour!

You DO love your moons! Hmmm, how to pick a fave? I think it might be the one with the bear draped sleepily over the top. No, the one with the cheshire grinning cat. No, definitely the last one with the little girl..... Love your use of color and the texture of the subtle circles. Perfect fit for this challenge!

Wow, these are all so fantastic. I think my favourite is the moon with the bat, he looks kinda cute, but I also love the cheesy grinning cat. Actually I love them all!

Joni, thank you for singing up and nice to meet you!

These are all so good. I will choose two for the CT montage but was one of them specifically drawn for CT? I'd like to use that one most of all. Wow, you are talented. All adorable. Definitely the right theme for you. :)
