I am home from my awesome get away with my friend Debbie.
Even though I had a awful cold the whole time, I really enjoyed myself.
I thought my throat was sore from the hint of smoke from the wild fires from last weekend, but I was wrong.
I have no voice..let me rephrase that. I have a voice that goes from squeaky to gruff in seconds. My girls tell me not to talk and let my voice rest. Seriously me not talk....do they not know me at all, lol.
I am sharing this card tonight in honour of one of my dad's favourite movies.
"A River Runs Through it" My dad loved that movie. I didn't realize it took place in Montana. Maybe that is another reason he loved Montana so much. My dad was born in Scotland but wants his ashes to be spread in Montana. That is the reason for our trip in a couple of weeks.
It has been exactly 1 year today since my dad passed away and I still miss his many daily phone calls.
Onto My card.
Can you believe this is my only boy image!!!
He is a cutie though isn't he.
I used my Copics for this one. And I actually recorded the colours I used on him. 1st time I did that.
But for this one I wanted him on a rock. How many benches do you find by the fishing hole?
So I drew (badly) some rocks out of this pattern paper, outlined them with a copic marker and layered them on top of each other. I am happy with how they turned out.
That put a smile on my face.
Question for all you Copic lovers. I have a few Copic markers ;)
I almost feel guilty though. Debbie wasn't familiar with these markers at all, until she saw mine.
She was surprised when she saw how many I had. Then out of curiosity she asked about how much each marker cost.
I didn't want to tell her knowing how much money I have put into these.
Then she mentioned about her and her hubby just buying a new fishing boat. And she weighed her options.... boat or markers. She picked the boat...I thought only for a second and realized I would have still picked the markers, teehee.
I am happy that I have them, I can afford them, I use them all the time, but I know others would think I was crazy to have as many as I do.
Do you ever feel shameful of any of your purchases?
Hope you all had a wonderful Thursday.
