It was awful late in the day to photograph, not to mention dreary and grey.  But, there was a lovely Chinook blowing, in between the rainy downpours!  LOL!     Prolly shoulda' waited until tomorrow–for better light, but . . . you know how it goes; patience is definitely NOT one of my precious few virtues . . . *sigh* . . .

Those Fluid Chalk Inks sure make for some very rich and intense colors–I am loving the effect on the solid Chrysanthemum and Leaf Trio!  I splurged on the tiny Chocolate Pearls for this design, and embellished every blossom of the Dill. 

Happened to have some rich chocolate satin ribbon in my stash that suited, and the focal image is matted on our new Espresso Shimmer Couture Paper.  Didn't it turn out plush???!!!  I'm so giddy, I can hardly stands it!  (arms wrapped around self, chortling)

I need to play some more.  Definitely.  I was so happy when I finished this, I was bouncin' pretty darn hard! 

It's Friday night, and time for the big Homecoming Game!  I hope it doesn't pour the whole game while the boys are down there . . . not that it makes a big difference to me–cuz, I'm gettin' up close and personal with the rubbah tonight, baby!!!

Have a fab weekend!
