I'm Back!! FFF Challenge

Guess who's back? Back again. Jenny's back. Tell a friend.
A little Slim Shady for y'all!! LOL! But seriously. Tell a friend! I only have 7 followers and I want to take over the world!;) hehe
Yes, I'm back from my nearly 3 week holiday with the fam to beautiful BC!! We had a blast, staying the first week in the Shuswap where we swam, sunbathed, rented a boat and went tubing and waterskiing (the kids loved tubing btw:), went for walks and realxed in general! Then we went on to Victoria, which is my all time favorite city!! I love it there! The weather was amazing (which was the opposite of Alberta, so I've heard). We stayed at lovely Lake Cowichan for the first few days, which is up-island for Victoria. The scenery is gorgeous there- I am in love with Lk Cowichan! Then we stayed right in Victoria and had a great time with my extended family. The kids had a great time basking in the ocean and hunting for seashells and crabs and they even fed seals in the harbour!! It was all in all a phenomenal trip! I have been up to my neck in laundry, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel (hope its not a frieght train..Yikes!!!! lol). I managed to sneak in a little stamping this afternoon while the hubby is out for a round of golf with his brother and the baby was napping. I used an image that I already had coloured (this saves alot of time, but limits supplies if you don't have your paper, etc. in mind when you start colouring- which i never do;). I managed to find some pretty decent 'matches' in the paper department. This is a sketch from Mercy for the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge. I used the Greeting Farms 'Laundry Anya' and coloured her with copics. I added some white flocking to her slippers to mimic my cozy sheepskin lined slippers. Some crazy machine stitching adds texture. I tried a new thing and printed the sentiment on a strip and attached it with a little bit of a wave. Adds a little dimension and draws your eye to the small sentiment. I can't seem to make anything without a button or two and linen thread! hehe

Isn't the sentiment adorable? It's a Kraftin Kimmie set and it has so many cute sayings! This has been my day for the mostpart...LAUNDRY! LOL Anya is just sitting there in her heap of laundry wondering "will it ever end"? I can actually hear the *SIGH*! hehe!
A close-up of the 'flocked' furry slippers and button/twine treatment. The inside was kept really simple. Scraps of the DP and a martha punch. The sentiment and hanger is from Skipping Stones Designs. I'm not a huge fan of mixing fonts, but I felt like the inside needed a few words. There was far too much white space for my comfort (hehe) and the card is a bigger one (5.5x5.5). Stampin Up actually sells enveloped that size in case you were wondering!
