The Greeting Farm Unicorn and My Photos of the Day

Hi Friends! I wanted to post this early before I go to bed . . .I have things to do tomorrow and may not have been able to post this card until later in the afternoon so I decided to post it now. Gosh I don't know why I do this to myself. The previous night I had only 3 hours of sleep because I slept really late and forgot I had to get up at 5:00 to bring my daughter to a community event for the Key Club. I had to drive her back and forth to different events. Well, she has to attend the same event today and I'm doing it again. I'm sleeping late and need to wake up early again. I just don't like wasting my weekend going to bed early so I'll stay up as late as I can stand it. LOL!!

Anyway. . .I started this card yesterday and finished it today. I was constantly interrupted so everything had to be done in pieces.

Anyway. .I colored this fabulous digital image by The Greeting Farm. Doesn't she remind you of "my little pony" . . do you remember those toys.

I decided to color the pony gray. . .not sure why. I seem to color all my animal images brown so I wanted to do something different.

I stamped the image twice and layered the image using foam tape. I colored my image with Copic Markers.

Do you see the background? Do you see how the colors fade. Well I did that with my Copic Markers. I just used different shades of the same color tone and colored/layered the colors over one another to created that faded effect.

Anyway. . .scroll down for my Photo of the Day. Yup, I'm back to taking photos again.

Hope y'all have a fabulous Sunday!!

Photos of the Day
Key Club Bake Sale

This is the event that I had to bring my daughter so early yesterday and today. The Key Club had a bake sale to do a bit of fund raising. There was a bicycling race event and there were different food vendor including the Key Club's bake sale. I decided to take the opportunity to take a few photos while I was there. I actually took a bunch of photos but I'll be posting them on my Photo Inspirations blog site sometime this evening. I'll take more photos today then I'll post all of them on my photo blog.

Okay. . .doesn't this look like a photo of a bug balancing on a tight rope? LOL! Actually it's a bud of a plant . . .a plant that sort of look like tall grass. After I uploaded the photo, I thought hey, how cool. . it looks like a bug.

I took the photo with my 58mm macro lens attached to my standard 18-55mm lens. I really like how it turned out. I LOVE taking macro shots.

That's it. See y'all later. .
