The Right Stuff!


Hi there!  Sorry it's been so quiet around here but the extra work shifts have been keeping me busy and I have another week of them to go.  Today though I managed to steal a few hours to play in the Craft Cave.  I got some DT and special order cards done and even found a time to play along with some challenges.  Whoop whoop!  This card is for the current challenge over at Little Tangles.  I was inspired by the colours - those of the flip flops and the background.  I used some Copics on this lovely bird and perched him on an upside down tag.  

The other reason I've been quiet is because I was a little distracted last weekend.  I was a huge New Kids on the Block fan when I was a kid and the latest NKOTB cruise made a stop in Bermuda last Saturday.  I was there to greet the boat with a 3' x 6' sign saying "Danny!  I've waited 25 years to meet you!"  I waited on that dock from 7am until 3:30pm when Danny came off the boat solely to talk to me.  He gave me an autograph, took some pictures and promised me tickets for a future show before heading back onboard.  Whoop whoop!  I was a very happy (and extremely sunburnt) camper.  :)  I'll let you know if the ticket thing pans out…
