Busy, Busy, Busy!
I would like to just yell out a BIG WoHoOOOOO!!! My house is almost back in order!! The contractor finished today doing the remodeling of our bathroom. So that means all my furniture is back in our bedroom (we did that remodeling ourselves--painting and staining the concrete floor), and that means we get to sleep in our BED again!!!! My body is so happy for that--not to mention Eric's--he was sleeping on the floor in the living room!! So this card reminded me of more relaxing times coming ahead!! The mouse image is from Stampendous and was sent to me by a new SCS friend, Jo Ann (prince723--waves!). I made it for my friend Sheila to thank her for hosting our wonderful 4 day scrapbooking retreat at Big Rock out here in Eustace, Texas (said with a Texas twang)!! It reminded me of a few of the other scrappers that were there. One girl even went fishing every day!!??!! So it was kind of tongue in cheek, as we got a little kick out of it! To each her own, but I was there to scrapbook, man!! Anyway, back to the card: Pretty basic--colored it with my Prismacolor markers (BTW, Taylor has a terrific side by side comparison between these and Copics which are too expensive for my blood on her blog HERE), and also colored a little blue shadow around the image and it really makes it pop. I've always wanted to try it and I actually remembered to do it this time. So for all of you who know I don't do a lot of coloring--see!! I actually can!! This time I actually enjoyed it!! Maybe I will do much more in the future. Well, I am going to the Michael's studio to work tomorrow on a project--I am "papercrafting" a four foot tall letter M. Wish me luck!! Oh, and Shelbie (our 15 year old), is taking the written portion of her driving test tomorrow--wish her luck, too!!! Off to my comfy bed......
