It was like ol' Times

Here is a card I made for my friend Debbie...just because :)
We have been friends for over 25 yrs.
She stood up for Wayne and I when we got married.
Plus we were in same kindergarten class...but we didn't know it until many years later.

When I saw this cute stamp on one of our trips, I just had to get it as, for some reason, I thought of her :)
This card turned out so different then I had planned.
But, as I normally do, I picked the papers after I had coloured the image, and I didn't want to cover up that sweet heart.

Here is a closer look at the image.
I seem to be a bit rusty with the Copics...I sooo need to get my markers out more.

And here is the inside of the card, and the stamp I used.

I also put a little video together of my last few cards :)

Onto My Day:
The reason for the title, was because I was a taxi for my daughters today.
It was my week to car pool Kristy and her friend as well as her friend's brother to school this morning.
Then I had to pick Kristy up at 12:15 and take her to the college. She is taking a course there and will receive a highschool and a college credit for it.
Then I had to pick her up at the end of it.
Ashley's (my) jeep was in the shop, so I had to pick her up from work to take her to pick it up when it was done.
Then lastly I met my friend Debbie for a bit of supper and some shopping. Debbie and I used to do this every Tuesday...but for whatever reason it got pushed to the back burner.

Kristy apologized when I told her I was a taxi today.
I told her there is no reason to reminds me of when you girls were younger and I spent more time in the jeep driving you guys around then I did at home. And to tell you the truth, I kind of miss that ;)

I hope you all have had a creative Wednesday :)
