Let's Call This a MidWeek Reminder!!!

Yes, it's a MidWeek Reminder - that's it!!!  Not late... cuz how many times will I get to go to Hawaii?  Probably the one and only time I just came back from lol!  Sounds like a justifiable excuse, doesn't it?

OK... so here's Fisherman Lewis by Prairie Fairy Designs.  Doesn't he make you giggle?  He has that kind of face...and those glasses!  They ARE in you know hee hee.

I've discovered BURGUNDY!!!  I've been wondering for ages how to 'make' burgundy with copics!  Thank you so much, Eulanda!!!  You're the BEST : )  I did tweek it a little bit, but you got me headed in the right direction - yay!!!  So here's the recipe I used to get the color burgundy (with shading/highlights):  R39 R37 R35 with E18 E17 E15.  What do ya think?


I still think my 'guy' cards are very plain...  I just don't know what to put on them!!!  What embellishments do you like to use for guys?  I sure could use some ideas!

Don't forget to check out Fairy Fun Fridays - Snips & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails Challenge #61.

Thanks so much for stopping by : )

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~

How can you not smile at Lewis?? He looks so happy! Guy cards are just tough, how about cork, twine, pheasant feathers, nail heads, or leather?
