Hi everyone! sorry I was missing in action a couple of days last week. I had some really long days at work Thursday and Friday. My boss's youngest daughter stayed with me at work all day both days while her mom was busy running errands. She is the sweetest little girl, but it still makes for a long day doing your usual work and entertaining a six year old all day long! We played with her stuffed animals, we colored, we played Chutes and Ladders, we made a car out of a cardboard box for her stuffed animals to ride in, we watched a movie on Netflix, we made animals out of clay, we drew and colored all of her stuffed animals and stapled them into a book, we sang songs, and then we did it all over again!
I spent the weekend recuperating from Thursday and Friday, doing my grocery shopping, doing my cooking, gave Riley a bath and a trim, and we also did a fair amount of playing and taking walks because the weather was GORGEOUS!
Sunday I got some time to make a few cards and played along in Friday's Copic marker challenge at the Outlawz. The theme of the challenge was Splash - something water related.
I used an image by Mike Eustis called A Wee Bit O' Rain. The sentiment is also available at Squigglefly HERE. I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked the sky and ground. I added stickles to the rain fall and crystal lacquer to the puddles. I also added some little rain splash rain dots.
There's a fun, new challenge on Squigglefly's blog today, so be sure to take a look and try to make some time to play along - it's a great one to check out too because the theme is favorite new or old techniques - so you just might learn something new to try!
