Dumplins' & Dragons


Where did the morning go? I really only got two cards made? I also looked through my favorite cook book.... Does that count as cooking? I was in the kitchen while I skimmed through the book....

No need for me to cook last night! Mother (AKA Memere Old) made one of my FAVORITES - Chicken n' Dumplin's! And a choice of dessert - homemade apple pie or cream puffs! No doubt about it I went for the cream puffs. (I hear Sister Judy makes THE BEST cream puffs ever - maybe I should instigate a mother/daughter/sister cream puff challenge.) I have to admit it scares the beejeezes out of me that this 90 pound 92 year old is using a pressure cooker - but arguing with her is even scarier. No need to cook tonight as I now have leftovers from last night.

These card colors diverge from my usual palette. I liked the layout sketch (C4C12) posted today at Crazy 4 Challenges so I decided to go for it. I think I mentioned that while on vacation I colored in several stamped and digital images using my Copics. So when I colored these I had no idea what the future would hold for them - no layout plans, no idea if I had design paper to coordinate...Not sure that was such a good idea but I do like having a stock of already colored and coated images.
