Hiya! I planned on posting this a couple days ago but life got in the way. Christmas party, leakly roof blistering the paint on my kitchen ceiling, pizza at Mom's (Windsor pizza to boot!!!!), and a retirement party has kept me busy over the last few days. And if you are wondering why I am boasting about Windsor pizza it is because it THE BEST PIZZA this side of Old Forge, PA where I had the best pizza of my life on one of our Dave Matthews tour dates.

Gosh I missed Dave this year and I can only hope that the band will be announcing tour dates for next year real soon. He brings us to places we would never dream of going and I have great food experiences at 'almost' every place we have visited. Ya...I'm a big time foodie! And I have to throw the 'almost' in there because as we sat in one place having THE WORST hotdog of my life, our son texted me asking where the Thai take out menu was! YA....I was NOT happy, and to top it off hubs rubbed it in that I left them too much money for food! No worries...hubby has paid big time for that because now when we travel I use my trusty Urbanspoon iPone app to find us a great restaurant that does not serve hot dogs!

Alright...with that out of my system I can move on to Stamping Bella's Bismarck by Mo Manning. Isn't he just the cutest thing EVER!

I tried to get him to be a more 'blonde' colour but my copics got the best of me and he ended up a little more brown than I had hoped for. Then I had a tradegy and after he was all coloured up I was reinking my R22 copic and i dropped it getting a nice big blotch of red in the upper right corner. I was not going to let my time go to waste so I thought it was a good opportunity to add the metallic frame with the Verve sentiment. The hardest part was finding a sentiment in my stash that would fit into the frame because it had to be tiny! Thank goodness I have a LARGE stash of Christmas sentiments.

Mistakes aside, I stamped him with memento Rich Cocoa on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured him with the following copic markers:

R14, 22, 24, 29, 59, YR30, 20
YG45, 67, 99, W00, 0, 1, 2, 4
E30, 41, 42, 50, 51, 53, 23, 44, 47
C00, 1, 2, 5

That's it for today, I'll be back on Friday with my white challenge card.

Great card. As always, coloured beautifully.

I agree with you in that Windsor has the best pizza. Living there at one time, my fav was Gino's and Tony's. The Italian section has wonderful pizza too. Sarnia has a couple of amazing places too.
