Fun times...

I whipped up a quick card last night so I could join in the fun over at the Tiddly Inks blog with the open blog hop.  I hope I have the time conversion right as it starts at 12pm CST (which I think is 7pm here).













































How cute is this image?  This cutie is called Going Swimming... I just love Christy's style of drawing.  Unfortunately my photos are a bit dark, but you get the idea I hope.  The papers are from October Afternoon and Crate Paper and the sentiment is from The Greeting Farm.   I have coloured the image with copics (see below) and added Glossy Accents to her goggles and to the water.  The circle in the background is cut with my new Slice machine (LOVE it!!!).


These are the copics I used:















And today was fire drill day... this is Larry suited up and off to put out a fire in the engine room...


Happy Tuesday!

Fire drill... doesn't look like he has much space to get down there. But the practice is good, I'm sure. ;D

I wish I could whip out cards that looked half as good as this one. The papers are awesome, and I'm kind of partial to this image myself. Great job!
