Happy April Fools Day!
I wanted to come up with something really clever, but was really feeling totally uninspired. My working conditions are really starting to bother me and I find that it is just too hard to work in a very messy area. I really need to do something about that but don't have the energy to deal with it. So I'm throwing it all away! Ha Ha! April Fools!
This is another stamp image from the American Art Stamp co. I think it's funny. While I was coloring in these two gals I was reminded of a woman my family and I met while we were in Venice, Italy. We were on a yacht departing from the Hotel Cipriani and this couple comes onto the yacht. She and her husband were spending the summer in Venice at the Cipriani. This is one of the most expensive resorts that Venice has to offer, maybe even one of the finest in the world. (We had just stopped there to have one of their world famous Belinis! 6 Belinis cost $150! When my kids asked if they could have another one, my husband and I said in unison "NO!") anyway, they were very nice, but we couldn't help but notice her hair. it was the most outrageous hair color and hair style that we had seen. Bright blue and purple mixed together...not your typical blue rise that the older woman tend to get, and crazily (((is that a word?))) styled, spiked and just all over the place. At first I thought that she was Phyllis Diller! My kids couldn't stop staring at her. I on the other hand couldn't take my eyes off her 6 + carat diamond ring! LOL!
I hope that your all having a magnificient day and that the pranks were kept to a minimum!
thanks for visiting!
Smiles, :)
