Ok, so before I get started with my latest card post, I'll take a minute to wish everyone in the USA a Happy Independence Day! Thanks to our military, past and present, for all of their dedication, efforts, and sacrifices to maintain our liberty.
The fireworks will be starting here in an hour and a half or so. I am stoked. I love fireworks. It's also a bit sad, because I'd usually be watching them going off over the armory in Colonial Williamsburg. Rick and I would stay there for the holiday, walking to the armory from our hotel and setting up our little folding chairs and snacks. We'd settle in for an hour or two of people watching before the fireworks got started. Thinking about that kind of thing makes me miss him yet again (as if I don't do that enough times each day, already!). So, let's focus on good stuff, instead. I don't want to get all weepy-eyed and crap like that.
I spent all weekend getting a bunch of stuff done that has been sitting off to the side for ages. I hung shelves and pictures, scrubbed floors, went through my closet and made a pile for the Goodwill, and so on. I also took some time in there to be a bum, read my book, and color.
This time around, I colored "stepsisters" by Mo Manning. Mo is incredibly talented. All her images make me smile and/or tug at my heartstrings. This is one of the ones that makes me grin. These two just look so ornery. They're perfect for a card for a very close friend of mine, who happens to share my sarcastic sense of humor, understands my moods (and deals well with them), and is just a blessing in my life.
As usual, I colored the image with my copics. Here's the ones I used:
The sentiment says: "Our friendship is insanely awesome! You're insane and I'm awesome!!!"
Ok, I'm off to see what else I can get into before my family gets here to watch fireworks with me! Happy 4th!
