Sweet Pea - orange wings
Monday morning again and JUNE already!!!!! WOW
Today's card was done for this weeks challenge over at 'In A Sweet Pea Dream' - for wings (and a Sweet Pea image of course, but there are plenty to chose from!!). Check out the challenge here - http://www.inasweetpeadreamchallengeblog.blogspot.com/
I colored her with copics and was trying for darker skin tones - not perfect, a little darker than I wanted because you can't see the details around her face very well.....
But I did like how all the oranges and reds turned out.....
I used some yummy BG paper behind her, an orange ribbon, some lighter crochet ribbon and lastly used my copics to color some pearls to match.
Well it was a hot and steamy weekend here in NW Florida and the Pirates once again took over the town yesterday - we parked out lawn chairs right at the edge of the action (hours before) and watched as the town Militia bravely fought the Pirates but ultimately lost (for the 56 th year in a row :). After the battle we took part in the booty and debauchery that is a Pirate celebration (beads throw me some beads, throw me a cup!!! Coin - here, throw me a coin :) - silly, yes we know :) - If you would like - scroll back a post for a few Pirate pictures.....from saturdays row.....yesterday we all just layed around the house (the heat wipes me out - although I didn't get sunburned this year....and the kids were tired because they ran errands and helped out at the festival as part of the ROTC group.) Too bad the fireworks got rained out - both nights....friday evening was a quick late afternoon downpour that got the fireworks and last night was a full blown evening thunderboomer we so often get here in the summer (we actually needed the rain big time....).
All for today - worked last night, back to work tonight but only 3 more shifts - including tonights - till vacation - "North to Alaska" !!!!!
