Hi everyone! What a week it has been. I've been on vacation this week, and can't believe it's coming to and end on Monday, then back to work on Tuesday. For our Thanksgiving, my son Mark and his Fiancee Anna invited us up to their home along with her family. It was so nice to meet her parents and her siblings - 6 of the 7 were there. Such a fun and loving family, lots of laughs - which is always good for the soul!
The rest of the week we worked around the house, cleaning closets, garage and storage areas, took a lot of stuff to the Goodwill. - (this is why I haven't posted all week). It was hard work especially in the crawl spaces where you can only crouch, no room to stand with being under the eves - really hard on the lower back, which after 2 days of doing this we laid low on Thursday. Today we worked in putting all the lawn furniture away, cleaning out flower pots etc. It's always sad when this gets done because you know what is around the corner - WINTER - which means SNOW! Actually it is suppose to snow tonight in areas an hour north and east of us, just a chance of rain for us over night.
On Oct 12 it was Mark's 31st birthday. I was stumped on what to do for a card for him. I know he loves his guitar, and then remembered I had this MO Manning digital image I purchased a few years back. My friend Carla used this image a few years ago, and I fell in love with the colours she used, so I basically coloured mine the same.
This is the final result:
I coloured the image using copics, but I was in a rush to get this done last Saturday before we went to visit them on Sunday, and never kept track of my colours. I stamped my background music notes - (Penny Black background stamp)in black on a piece of kraft cardstock.
Finished off with some twine, Stamping bella dots as well as a musical die from Memory Box.
I hope to get some more stamping and colouring done over the next 3 days - I have to start on my Christmas cards - time is slipping away fast.
Thanks for the visit, have a wonderful day!
