OSAAT Challenge #140

Good morning everyone!! It has been one heck of a busy week!! And it's Sunday and hopefully I can have a day of rest LOL!! Work was really busy this past week. I don't think I left on time at all. To top that, we have a new boss who is meeting with us all on Monday. I'm a bit stressed over that, because I hate when someone comes in and changes how I work. I deal with change well, but I just don't like it LOL That meeting is tomorrow at lunch. We will see how that goes.

Saturday, the kids and I went to the local Housing Authority and handed out food for Thanksgiving. I'm so happy to see my kids doing things for people. It is so good for them to get involved in Charity work. I hope I can keep them going and that it's something they will carry on through life. It was really an amazing day... It is a special group of women that are doing some extra things to get on their feet. They are meeting once a week and doing some seminars. We were able to sit down and talk to a few of them. We met the lady that we have adopted her family for Christmas. It is her and her son and she was such an amazing lady. I was able to sit down and tell them I was where they are when I had my first daughter. It was a beautiful day with all of them and listening to them and talking with them. Just wonderful!!

After the visit and handing out the boxes, we headed to grab something to eat. We ate at a local restaurant, The Whistle Stop Cafe. Lunch was wonderful! They have the BEST fried okra LOL And they sell honey from a local guy. I will have to bring Kevin here when he gets back. After we all ate, we headed to Costco to pick up a few things. Then we came home... the kids ran up and dropped a couple of things in the apartment and we headed to Walmart to get the grocery shopping done. And wouldn't you know it!!! I have to go back tomorrow because I forgot a few things. Ughhh... Oh well!

Alright... let me get on with the challenge at hand!!

This week is Challenge #140 at One Stitch At A Time! The theme is "Use A Digi". For this challenge I used the image Toadstools and Snails - Hope Jacare Doodles. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color the image.

I used Prismacolor pencils, Copic 100 for some small detailing, The Art Glittering System - Crystal, Galaxy Marker - White, ZIG Millennium .05 Black pen, brown gems from Bo Bunny, Walnut Stain Distress Ink. And I believe that is it.

I'll be headed off to church in a bit... I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

Wow, your colouring with those pencils is amazing. This is such a detailed image and it looks really shaded and had lots of depth.

I'm sorry I haven't been able to pop along to your blog for the last few weeks, life has been too blooming hectic lately and has got in the way of crafting and computer time.

Love Mandy xxx
