Yup...doin’ the happy dance today!
Why you ask? Well, it’s Friday of course and I have the day off and I also have Monday off so nice long weekend for me. Today I need to do some house cleaning and get ready for our annual Steak and Lobster family event with my folks and my brother’s family. My brother, bbq’er extraordinaire, brings his camping cooking gear and he blackens the filets in a cast iron pan, then they are finished on the grill along with the lobster tails. I’m telling ya folks! My mouth is just a watering thinking about it. Maybe I’ll get some pictures if I can get people to keeps their utensils away from their plates for JUST ONE MINUTE!
And, because it’s Friday I have my sketch challenge to show you. Today's sketch was sponsored by our very own Joannabella. (don't ya just love how she takes all her pics in that GORJUS sitting room!) I chose Eloise Greengrass and colored her entirely with copics, no pencils! I added a little edge peeking out of the ribbon with one of my EK border punches. Now I must tell you another love that I discovered on my last trip to the BOOO-tique ...it's Bella's Bestest papah and it is hands down THE BEST paper I have ever used with copics, and I've tried them all. It is silky smooth and the colors blend effortlessly, one swipe of my marker and I fell IN LOVE!
Here are the copics used:
