You Make Me Smile

Want to make me smile? Come over and trim my bushes and trees, and bring me a Popsicle. I like cantaloupe or lime ones only. I was trying to trim some very unruly bushes today and the bugs are so god awful I was inhaling them. It was about 92F and we had a down pour of about 5 minutes which is just enough to create a very nasty swarm of gnats and humidity. Then it got dark. I can't see anymore tonight to work.

I made this card a while back with images from Hero Arts. A quick and easy design, I especially like that lily flower in the lower left corner. Don't really remember where I got them from but it was just a small bunch of them in a flat container. I would love to try and make my own from crepe paper sometime.

Just to give you a close up of the little lady, my coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The lighting on this is a bit off, but I was working using the stove light again. Someday I will actually get outside and photograph the others I have to present, but there is work to do first. Enjoy the summer as it is fleeting.....and so am I.
