That's how I feel about now cause I almost forgot to write this up! It's been a really lazy day for me today. I got up and decided my 'catch all' drawer in my desk really needed some attention....well, two entire hours of attention is what it got. A whole mess of completely unrelated 'stuff' that needed to get relocated into a permanent position or trashed! I did trash quite a bit and I always feel cleansed after a good purge.

Then I putzed around some more and colored a bit but didn't make huge headway in the coloring department....was just way too lazy and unmotivated I guess. But we all deserve that once in a while so I'm not banging my head over it.

Yesterday we went to Windsor to check in with my folks for a bit and then headed to Cityfest in Detroit. My mom needed some cards and Little Johnny Depster was in the stash I brought to her. My nephew's b'day is coming up and when I ran a few cards past my boys they both picked this one....I think it was the YAAARGH that sold them! I even combined a couple different sentiments, Happy Birthday and Matey, for the inside and it worked out pretty good because they happened to be in the same font. I decided to use the soft Cosmo Cricket paper from the 'lil man collection to create a subtle backdrop against the bold image and I'm really happy I did.

For inquiring minds, copics used in this image are:
CO, 1, 3, 5, 6, 8
Black, Colorless Blender
Y11, 13, 15, 17, 26, 28
R24, 29, 59
E000, 00, 01, 33, 35, 42, 43, 44
B32, 34, 37, 39, 95

That's it for today! After a nice 5 days away from the office it's back to work for me tomorrow! YAAAAARRGH!
