I am so not ready for this to be Monday, I need another day off.  I had a busy 3 days, and would love to have another day just to catch up on things.

Bill and I took off to Oakville/Toronto for the weekend to so some 'birding/photography'.  We had a fabulous time, I wasn't ready to head home when we did, would of loved some more time up there. 
We visited many parks but the ones that stood out with us were Humber College Park, Humber Bay and High Park.  Bill took some phenomenal pictures that I will share with you shortly.  One of the must see birds on Bill's Life List is the wood duck, and we were fortunate enough to see several of them Sunday morning at High Park.

So last night I realized I didn't have a card done for today, so guess what I had to do? Yup, had to colour up a card.  I've always loved these Mo images that came out back in November but every time I ordered I always forgot to put them in my cart, so on my last order I remembered!!  Big chair boy is the imaged I coloured by Mo Manning in rubber through Stamping Bella.

I stamped him on bella's bestest white and coloured him using copics and pencils for shading.
I matched my colours up to  designer papers from MME called Fine and Dandy. For my layout I basically took Fridays sketch challenge #7 and used it, since it seemed to fit with  my image perfectly.
Finished off with some buttons - always like to use buttons on 'little people' cards - they just seem to go hand in hand.

Also, a reminder for our bellariffic challenge this week, if you have a chance to play along our theme is Shower card - bridal, baby or use rain in the image. Email Emily your card by thursday night or upload it on SCS using the keyword BELLARIFFIC1412.

Well that's it for me today, I'm glad you stopped by.

Sweet card Pauline! I loved Friday's sketch and will be using it again too! The trio of buttons at the bottom are perfect.
