I had a real treat this morning, I was invited to a friend's house for coffee, along with another lady, and whilst there we started chatting about cups and mugs and she showed me this pretty blue cup that is part of a set she was given when she got engaged over fifty years ago. I just love the pattern on it and asked if I may take a couple of photographs with a view to sketching it. She was very happy for me to do so.
After my chat and catch up I did a little shopping and then went home for a light lunch and another coffee. My Moomin mini-mug was a gift from my son in Sweden a couple of years ago. It is just the right size for me. Bon appetit!
This afternoon I did a little crafting to complete my entry for #21 of the Quotes & Lyrics Challenge from The Craft Barn where the words to choose from are Hug and/or Nowhere. I chose the word Hug.
My quote, from I know not where, is 'Keep Calm and Hug Someone'. I have a stamp of a girl and I have a stamp of a teddy bear, but I couldn't figure out the best way to stamp them so the girl was holding the bear, so I decided to draw my own and I'm really rather pleased that I did. I did a quick sketch with a pencil then went over her with a micron pen. I did the background with Neocolor IIs and coloured the little girl with Inktense and Faber Castell watercolour pencils.
I am also using this tag as my entry for Tag Tuesday this week, where the theme is 'Fright Night'; and all things halloween; bu-ut, being a lazy person, I decided not to do another tag and use this tag as the antithesis of halloween. Hehehe. Why not pop over and see the scary tags already posted?
I double-dog dare you!
Until next time...........
