Just Us Girls #307 Photo Week!

Hello there!  I have been unintentionally absent for far too long! My apologies, but I won't offer excuses!  I'm back today with Chris' Just Us Girls challenge #307.  She has a super photo to challenge and inspire us this week!  You can see her post and the photo HERE!  AND, there is tons on DT inspiration, too!
So, here is how I was inspired!  I think this is the funniest (and, yes, the truest!) stamp I have seen in a long time!  I adore it with it's accompanying sentiment!  My friend, Luanne, gave me a round tag she had made using it.  I will get a photo of her tag to post soon. I came home from Luanne's and ordered these stamps (ebay, HERE and HERE) immediately! 

The image is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with the wonderful clean color real brush zig pens and a little water with a paintbrush. I used the 'sun' spellbinders die.  the rest of the dies are from MFT.
Thanks for visiting. It was so fun to create something again.  Now I want to create 8 more of these for teacher friends!  Wonder if I'll get that accomplished!  First up today, though, is to finish the closet I started yesterday.  It looks like it threw up its contents all over the floor. better get crackin'!  Have a great weekend and try to find time to join in the challenge! You have until Thursday at 9 pm ET!
