Ahhhhh, Summer has Finally Arrived!

Yippee! It is finally warm and summer like here in the Windy City! It is about freaking time! We took our pool cover off last night and filled up the pool. I think we might have made it another summer without having to replace the pool liner! Whew! So hopefully, if the warm temps stick around, my dear girl will get to splash and swim around........pure heaven for her!

I was in a coloring mood a couple of weeks ago and colored this sweet High Hopes image. (used my Copics!) To get some texture to the grass I took an old wash rag and took my dark green Copic and colored the washrag. Take some blending solution and "wet" the part of the rag you just colored. The dark green will transfer to the image!



Once again, I can't for the life of me can't remember who makes the DP. (Bad stamper, I know! I really need a better system for writing down my supplies while creating. If you could see the tornado I become when I AM creating you would totally understand......... : )
****Yes, had crazy hair day yesterday! The funniest kid I had was a boy in my room with blue hair, tons of gel, straws sticking out everywhere......and.......are you ready for this one? A red plastic cup attached to the side of his head! There was so much goop in his hair that the cup stayed put alllllll day! It was hysterical! Today is Hawaiian day........
Have a fantastic Wednesday!!!!!!

Super CUTE card Michele! Your coloring is fabulous ~ especially the textured grass. How clever! Summer has arrived here this week too...HOT & WINDY! It sounds like you're enjoying the last few days of school. I would *love* Hawaiian day! You should celebrate with a pina colada or mai tai after work tomorrow. ;)
