Friday is here again!

As I write this post I'm sitting having a coffee and watching Jason Mraz sing on the plaza on my fav Today show! He was the opening act when we saw Dave this spring and that song I'm Yours just makes me smile! As much as I love Fridays, this one is bittersweet for me because it's the last day of my stay-cation! Oh how I have LOVED my time at home. I got some things done around the house, spent some time with family and friends, got some colorin' done and basically lazed around to re-energize for what I know will be a buzy September. The boys will be heading off to different Universities and haven't been doing much to get prepared. I'm sure once they get there it's gonna be a lot of "mom, i need this". Fortunately, one is heading to Hamilton and the other to London so they are in the same direction and at most 2 1/2 hours away.


I took some creative liberties on Paula's sketch because I needed to make an anniversary card for my mom and chose Funky Irises. I didn't have any appropriate sentiments to fit the sketch so I replaced those with embellies instead. Three light olive glass pearls on the upper left and a bow down to the right. I colored with copics and added some sponging on the edge with my dauber and wheat and thatched straw ink.

short list for a change on the copics:
E40, 41, 50, T1
YR000, 12, 20, 31
R22, 24, YG03, 67, G82

Best get moving here, got groceries to do and some housecleaning to prep for another family bbq tomorrow! 16 people...YIKES!
