Hanging out to dry

I'm posting a little later than usual today. It's been one of those days. Busy, but a good day. All the kids were working, and that's a very good thing! I love it when they earn their own money! It means that more of my money stays in my wallet. Yippee...more money for me. I just spent the day getting them there, picking them up...you know how it is...today, I wore my taxi hat!
I ordered some Verve stamps...can't wait to get them.
Have a wonderful 4th of July. We'll be BBQing, hanging out good friends, watching the fireworks light up the sky! God Bless America.
thanks for visiting

I started off attempting a color challenge from SCS...but just couldn't pull it together with this image. THis is what i finally came up with. I don't think it's a color combo challenge, but I certainly think it should be!


Image...house mouse Pocket Fuzz
paper...Only orange, purely pom, night of navy, wild wasabi (some combo, huh?! lol)
ink...stazon black, prisma color pencils, gamasol
embellies...ribbon

..."hanging out good friends"...LOL Are they wet? Sorry, long day here and that just gave me fits of giggles!

You must know I love this card! I love that image, it is just too dang adorable!

For the 4th, we'll be picnicing with the inlaws and then again with DD team on Saturday to celebrate the end of the season and a couple of birthdays and then again on Sunday with the inlaws again! (good thing I love them!)

Have a great 4th and a safe one!

Hugs!

Hey Taxi Momma!! Just had to say that. My little ds loves taxi cars!

Your card is so cool!! And your coloring is so great! Those jeans look totally real! And the color combo would definitely be a challenge for me, but you mastered it!
Have a Happy 4th of July!!
