I thought I’d start out the week with something cheerful, but first I should offer some explanation for why I didn’t share additional Wally and LuLu photos on Sunday as I’d mentioned I would. The fact is, the day came to an end and I’d forgotten to schedule the post. Too much on my mind and too little sleep, I guess. I’ll save it for next Saturday. Long story short, Wally ate something he shouldn’t have (fatty food – he doesn’t tolerate it and he didn’t get it from us, grrrrr) and now he’s suffering. Saturday night he woke me up every hour – no exaggeration – so he could go outside and relieve himself. I don’t think he slept much in between, nor did I. As I write this Sunday night, I fully expect another sleepless night facing a 6:00 am alarm for work in the morning. However, Wally and I will be visiting the vet, and work will have to get along without me for a while. Don’t worry, I’m keeping an eye on our Wally.
Now, the card:
Does it look like fun? You’re darn tootin’ it was! I bought these Inky Antics Holiday BaZooples sets #1 and #2 for Christmas cards this year. This is Set #2. I’d better get crackin’ if I’m going to finish them. I made two identical cards with this image – a good start. I’ve got three more images to work with. I like this one because it reminds me of Wally and LuLu. I colored with Copic markers using these colors:
I forgot to include the blue markers which I used for shading around the giraffe. Those were B00 and B0000 with the edges further softened with the Colorless Blender.
I made the snowflake with Spellbinders Snowflake Wonder Shapeabilities (retired?). I pressed each layer into my Tsukineko glue pad and sprinkled with glitter for ultra sparkle.
I’ll be seeing you again in a day or two. Have a happy week!
