Catching up

As much as I love going away for a few days, it has to be a really worthwhile reason to go because so much doesn't get done around here when I am away for a weekend. Making cards is one of those things that gets neglected but I am catching up. And today's card is very appropriate because I am also catching up on some much needed love in the yard. The poor thing has been so neglected with the cold and rainy spring we have had. Can you believe that last week I had the furnace on and the last couple days it has been in the 90's and terribly humid! Freaky southern Ontario weather!

Mo Mannings Sadie looks a lot like me this past weekend, except my hair is straight with wild wings sticking out all over the place from sweat, and I DEFINITELY don't wear lipstick, or any makeup for that matter because I am constantly wiping my face in my old worn out t-shirt...it ain't a pretty picture folks!

As always I stamped her on bella's BESTEST paper, paired her up with basic grey's hello luscious and coloured her with the following copic markers....except for the shading and blue tinge in her apron which I did with pencils after colouring with green copics. I LOVE how the pencils just give that hint of colour when I need it.

E000, 00, 21, 11, 81, 87, 42, 43, 44
E30, 33, 35, 37, 49
R20, 24, 81, 83, 85, 89
YG11, 41, 45, 93, 25, 67
YR30, 12, 14, Y11, 15, 21, 26, 28

WHEW! lots of markers there but she was really a joy to colour! Now you've still got time to play along in our Masculine challenge this Friday....and with Father's day just around the corner this could give you an early start on one of those cards that you may need! For ONCE, I'll be ahead of the game!

Till next time, Linda
