Today is Day 3 of the April A to Z Challenge. There are hundreds – okay thousands!  taking part – amazing! Be sure to check out the website.

My theme is art quote cards by famous people..The cards are 4″ by 4 1/2″,usually  with a gelli print background, a used stamp of the person and a quote by them. It is an ongoing project.

I could not settle on just one quote/person, so for C:

C is for Sir Winston Churchill

A great man, who lead Britain through its darkest days, and although was not perfect (who is?). was the right person at the right time.

There were so many quotes to choose from, but this says it all. Here are a few of his other great sayings:

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.

Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Kites rise highest against the wind – not with it.

C is also for Cesar Chavez
