I'm back!

Yep, I had two vacations scheduled pretty much back to back starting mid June thru last Sunday. I went to visit my sister in NC for a long weekend. Then a few days later, my husband, fur baby and I drove home for two weeks for our annual Illinois/Wisconsin trip. (We are both from Illinois, but most of his family have since moved to WI.) Because of that, I made cards only for my DT responsibilities and scheduled all my blog posts for, like, the last month! But THIS post is happening right now! LOL!

While visiting with my in-laws, there were days that all it did was rain. Not a problem - I came prepared with my Spectrum Noir markers and a bunch of stamped images to color! This was one of the images I colored while there, and now it's made it onto a card:

 Here is the inside:

I just love Eunice! Look at all that attitude! LOL! My favorite things about this image are her smirk, that big hair, and the sneakers! The inside sentiment was printed from my computer. I've used the sketch from STS#24 for my inspiration.

Well, that's it for now. I'll leave you with some pictures from our vacation. Enjoy and have a great day!
