Rushing Around

Kraft and Prismacolors and Art Impressions :)

Anyway! It's a snowstorm here in West Yorkshire (Really Horrible Weather), but I was brave and left my house to get my eyes tested and of course this is a perfect stamp for this occasion :D

I think coloring is good, shades and all. When getting my new specs I might think differ. ;)

Never Too Early

Awww... this image is so cute. So innocent little one. Reminds me of my younger son who was on computers earlier than could walk probably. When I was asking if he wanted me to read a bedtime story, he said "bring the calculator instead, please". Well, that's my son.

Back to this card now.
