Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike! Guess what day it is?! Hump Daaaay!! Ok, I know, the commercial is getting old and very irritating, but I just couldn't help myself! Now, on to what I really wanted to blog about! Got a card to share that uses the current Mojo Monday #340 sketch, and since I used SOG stamps, I'll be linking this to their April Linky Party.

Here is the inside:

and  the sketch:

I used my SN markers to color Hipster Kody (My comment to win about him singing Smelly Cat won me this set! Who knew? LOL!) So I put Glossy Accents on his glasses to make them shiny. Then after I was done it occurred to me that I never added the white highlights to his eyes first. DOH! What I did was try adding them on top of the dried Glossy Accents with a Sakura white Gelly Roll pen. It worked, people!! The beauty of it is that even holding the card 5" in front of my face and looking at it, you can't tell I did that! Bonus! 

So that's my story and I'm sticking with it. I hope you get a chance to enter either of these challenges. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty rest of the day!
