A Wonderfully Whimsie Wednesday!

Happy Humpday!!

I hope you are having a great week so far!! I have been feeling weird because I am suddenly not so stressed by a lot of deadlines like I recently had been.  I have been enjoying getting my scraproom back in order and working on getting ahead on upcoming assignments, challenges and just making cards for fun!!  I love to stamp so much!! I am so thankful for the ability to do it almost daily!!  :-)

With it being a Wednesday, we have a new Whimsie Wednesday Challenge today over at PaperCraft PlanetPaula has inspired us to make a card for National Friendship Week with a friend theme in mind!

This is what I came up with...

Ha!! Isn't that cute?  I can't take much credit for it, it is certainly Melyssa's images that make this so adorable.  I just got to have fun coloring it in and planning it out!  I printed the How Ewe Doin stamp (which is a free giveaway at PCP for members) once as it comes and once in mirror image.  I centered them and resized them to make them fit right in the middle of a 4 x 4 square card.  I also added the sentiment from the Have a Seat collection.  It seemed to go perfectly with the message I was sending!

Here is a closeup of the colored images.  Gotta love coloring with Copics!! I could do that all day!!  :-)  I used my Copics air brush to create the grass and sky.  To make the space around the sentiment remain white, I just masked over it with a nestie shape that fit. 

Coincidentally I am having lunch today with two wonderful friends of mine from work (barring no baby calls!)  Their names are Melissa and Michele.  We call our get together's our "Therapy Sessions" because there is no topic that can't be discussed and we are always there to love and encourage each other.  II always leave our "sessions" feeling better and thankful for my friends that are always by my side!  t has been way too long since we got together and I am looking forward to their company and to eating some Sushi!!  

Have a great rest of your Wednesday and may your bucket overflow with the kind of friends who are always by your side!
