Day of Rest

After our Thai feast yesterday, today was mostly spent as a day of rest for me, which included a nice little nap...but i did throw in just a little bit of colorin'. Yesterday I started about 8am prepping food and worked pretty much all day. While chopping veggies, thinly slicing meat, soaking noodles, making sauces, etc, I watched the Kennedy funeral. Like Emily and her judge fetish, I'm a sucker for big state funerals and could have totally wept during the eulogies given by his sons.

Good thing I wasn't blogging during the death of Princess Dianna cause there would be NO cards...OMG...even my boys, who were VERY young at the time knew not to bother Mommy if she was weeping in front of the TV. I recall it was a long weekend here and I sat in front of that TV for three solid days. It was a darn good thing Monday was a holiday or else I may have to take a personal day off.

This morning while wathing the funeral highlights on the Today Show and Meet the Press I colored up Cherryblossom Bittybloom. I bought the Vintage Cherries Graphic 45 paper while at Emily's last week and knew I had to pair it up with her. For those in my class, this was your 'take home' image but I did alter the colors just a bit to better match this paper.

Copics used:
E000, 00, 11, R21
G20, 40, 82
Y000, 11, 21, 23, 26, 28
R24, 29, 59
E31, 35, W2

I added some glitter with my quickie glue pen and glossy accents to the center of her flower hat. The Martha Stewart scallop dot border punch is also something that I came home with on my shopping trip after the Bella class. You can find a lot more Martha Stewart punches here.

I've got another card to mount up tonight cause it has to hit the mail tomorrow, then I'll spend the rest of the evening hopefully catching some Criminal Minds reruns on A&E.

This is beautiful. I love the colors you chose. Yellows are a color that I rarely use. Love your copics coloring. I cry at any funeral. They are so sad. My heart goes out to the Kennedy family. He was such a leader in that clan.
