Good Morning!

I have been flat out like a lizard drinking at work this week. We've been working on recreating a computer model of a building built in 1858 here in town and every time I think I have enough measurements to make the model work, something else doesn't add up! I feel like a dog chasing his tail! It's really starting to drive me crazy.

A few weeks back I was kindly sent some Whiff Of Joy images from my friend Jenn. I've seen these stamps all over blogland and SCS, but I've never colored one in before...until now. And wholey cow - have I been missing out! This little girl, Willow, was so much fun to color! I think I used every Distress Ink pad I own to color her. Totally worth it though.

The sketch came from this week's Friday Sketchers challenge. I used what Prima flowers I had, but I wish I had the pretty, colorful ones that I see so often. Got to use up what I own first. That might take a while. ;)

Good any plans for the weekend? Other than cleaning my car, I don't think we have anything going on, for a change. Sometimes that's a nice thing. See you tomorrow!

Ok, I have to ask, what is with the drinking lizard expression. That has to be an Aussie one 'cause I'm totally lost! The card is gorgeous but I can't get over the expression!
