Something New

Good evening. Mo's challenge this week is Something New. FUN! As always I love challenges using Mo's images-I think they are some of my favorite scenes, each one tells such a great story. I downloaded some wonderful new images last week and made use of one for the something new card. So the story: it is very hot here in Texas (90 degrees) and it is only April so I think summer is going to be brutal. Since there isn't a pool on my backyard I think a new wading pool is probably one of the best things life (and the local Wal-Mart) can offer. There was also a lot of focus around here about doggies. Neighbors have a new puppy and it is only by sheer luck that my girls didn't bring home a new friend (puppy named gracie lou) from the adoption my oldest arranged at her employer. So, new pool, new summer, new friend.

On to the card-copics to color the two new friends, grass and pool. Sponged the sky with various chalk ink. The sun is a paper clip, a large bottle cap and sticker. I thought random squares for the background on the card would be fun-I like to keep the "boy" cards simple as having sons, nephews and so forth, I know their focus isn't so much on my artistic endeavors...
A new Pool, new day and new friend!
