Housework

Woot, woot! Tomorrow is Friday and the weekend is near. My FIL will be visiting this weekend but I hope I get some time to play. We'll wait and see how that goes. Today was beautiful! Lots of sunshine and the temps got to 50. A Lot of our snow melted. Tomorrow the rain is supposed to move in so the rest of our snow will likely melt. At least until it turns back to snow and sleet tomorrow night. Might be one of those weekends to stay in.
Tonight's card is a fun one. I love the sentiment!


The image and sentiment are from a set called Mopped Up from Imagine That. The sentiment certainly sums up my thoughts on housework. LOL! I colored the image with Copic markers. The background is done with a circular motion with a Copic and the floor is done with tiny dots with several different brown Copic markers. I saw this technique on a Copic blog. I die cut the image with Spellbinder's Labels 13 and backed it with black card stock. The Paper Studio background is from my scrap box. The sentiment is backed with black cards stock, all from my scrap box. I used a small piece of baker's twine for embellishment.

I am entering these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your weekend will be fin and relaxing. Take care!

Ha- that is perfect! I love this card. We had a warmer day today- in the mid 40's when the sun was out, but it will be -20 on Monday per the newscasters......

Well, this is definitely not a motif that makes my heart sing, but {sigh} - sometimes you just gotta! And you made it so cute with the image, the fun die mat and the dotty background too! It's darling, and just the thing to cheer up a frazzled homemaker! Happy FIL visit, and hope the ice & sleet don't cause too big of a problem. We're getting dreary rain today, and expect colder temps for the wkend. Haven't heard any ice predictions - yet! TFS & Hugs.

oops..forgot to say how much I liked your copic dots. That is something that looks very easy but I don't find it so. You did a terrific job with this though, and it's very textured!

What a COOl card!! I love the dotty dirt floor - that technique is really neat. Love the whole card overall. We've some snow flurries here and there these last couple weeks, but nothing substantial - not since before Christmas anyways. Funny when I read your post I was thinking, "I wonder where she's from"... BWAHAHA!!! It took me a second to realize your blog title *wink*

Thanks for playing in our COLORING CONTEST this month! I hope you'll join us for our new Open Digi Challenges starting the 1st Saturday in February :)
