Good Afternoon my Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Hope you are all well today?.  Not been a very nice day with the weather although it's
not cold but no sun, Ah well cannot ask for to much can we?
Not been up to much today only went into the town to do some shopping and buy
a present for Hubby and I with the money that mum gave us for our Anniversary.

I bought a Solar Squirrel who is looking through binoculars (quite sweet), I 
thought it apt as we do have squirrels in our garden. Took it to mum's so that
she could see what she has bought and had a cuppa with her before coming home.

Today's make is a mixture, hope you like?

1. White 6 x 51/2 card stock which I have embossed. I then covered with
white embossing powder and then taking Cosmic Shimmer
Iridescent's I painted in some of the leaves  in Ultramarine 
and Red Fire and left some in white. For the rest of the background I used
Warm Peach.
2. The image I coloured using Pro-Markers and then distressed the
background with Tim Holt's Antique Linen to distract from the
white background.

Well my friends that's all I have time for as I am cooking a dinner and
I have to go and feed my neighbours cat as I am looking after him while they 
are away.

As Always Take Care and Happy Crafting
