Yup, we are almost empty nesters again. One gone, and one halfway gone....well he's gone, but will be home again on the weekend. So I sort of dedicate this card to ME...I can handle one more weekend...put the big girl panties on and get through it!

Okay....really I'm just kidding (kinda kidding). Some things I will REALLY miss, like having a live in pool boy who LIKED to clean the pool, and built in errand boys who would run to the grocery store for me at the drop of a hat, and a kitchen clean up crew who would empty the dishwasher everyday...but on the other hand, with cooler weather coming soon the pool will not get as much use, i won't need as many groceries for just hubs and I, and with just the two of us here, I only run the dishwasher every 3 or 4 days so it isn't as much of a chore to keep up. Now the truth is, they are looking forward to going back as much as we are, so that's good...we are all ready.

So I'm gonna put my big girl panties on, smoke a couple more racks of ribs and enjoy this long weekend.

So now I'm gonna gush over my card. ISN'T SHE THE CUTEST THING EVER! This is BIG GIRL PANTS in rubber by Mo Manning. And that sentiment is SO APPROPRIATE for SO MANY occasions. A total girl-to-girl card if I've ever seen one. She was stamped on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with the following copic markers:

E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E30, 31, 33, 35, 37, 40, 42, 50, 51, 55
BV000, G0000, 000, BG0000, 72

I shaded around the image with prismacolor pencil in ginger root and used Antique Linen distress ink on everything to give it the 'vintage' look. This is gonna be another one to part with because I kinda want to hang it at my desk at work with my other canvases! BUT...if you wanna see it LIVE, it will be hanging at the bella booth at Archivers Scrapfest in a couple weeks.
Now you still have LOTS of time to play along in our challenges next week. AJ Monday is to use a tag and Bellarific Friday is appropriately BACK TO SCHOOL!

see ya soon! Linda.
