A New Day

Yes, kids, it's a new day. Or tomorrow will be, AND tomorrow is FRIIIIIDAY! I am not dead, though it has been four days since my last photo was taken, so I'm only nearly dead. I blame a draining work week and missing mojo.

But in a recent fit of retail therapy, I ordered one or more things from Simon Says Stamp, and since my order arrived, I forced myself off the couch and into The Captain's Quarters. I just made this:

I used my old-but-not-yet-opened Hero Arts My Happy stamp set and my new Simon Says Stamp Hexagon Border die. Oh, and the washi tape is also new. Hey, I had to justify the shipping, right?  (tee hee, I typed that just ify, like it's kinda IFFY logic. pffth.)

Here is a close-up of da boid:

I inked the wood-grain circle stamp in Memento London Fog and stamped it off on some scrap paper before stamping it on the card stock. I'd planned to stamp da boid over it, so the background needed to be lighter. I colored him with my B02 Copic marker. I did not color the fleurs ... longest. week. ever.

In other news, I feel compelled to re-do all my blog categories and labels. I do. I may not get to it, but I still feel like it. Or I may start one day with all new categories. Or maybe I'll go to bed.

Thanks for stopping by!
