Hi everyone! I hope your weekend was a good one. I managed to get a little crafting time in, but not as much as I had hoped. We spent some time getting things ready for the new member of household. He will be joining us tomorrow night. poor little guy is going to have big day tomorrow - he's getting neutered, picked up, taken to our vet, and then home to his new family! Hopefully Riley will be welcoming. My biggest hope is that they become great friends before long. We still have to decide on a name for him too!
I can tell you that it doesn't take long to get out of practice when you haven't made a card in over a week! Unfortunately it shows in the card I'm sharing with you today.
Don't let my coloring throw you off of this gorgeous Apples and Pumpkins image drawn by Lynne Stansbery! I used colored pencils and I'm really not happy with the way it looks at all. I just didn't have time to make another one, but I will be using this image again with my Copics and hopefully do it justice!
There's a new challenge on the Squigglefly Blog today! Be sure to go take a look at what Holley's team has done! Play along and you could win any image of your choice!
