Hey Foxy

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great weekend!  Yesterday, we went to a memorial.  It was hard but nice to see such a lovely celebration of William's life.  The kids painted rocks for the rock garden.  We left early since I started to feel really sick in the heat.  I wish we had been able to stay for the tree planting.  But, Parker was asleep before we even got home and Dustin and I both fell asleep for 3 hours so it's probably for the best that we went home.

On a lighter note, here's a card I made for a couple challenges.  Can I first say that I'm NO good at coloring fur?  I should have just done basic shading on this poor fox.  I'm entering this card in the Some Odd Girl August sketch (yes, another one for that same challenge) and the Simon Says Stamp Animal Antics challenge.  I love this sweet image and sentiment from Some Odd Girl!  The paper is from My Mind's Eye.  I was pretty thrilled with myself for not going outside the lines with my markers, so I just die cut the whole circle that the fox is on and adhered it with foam tape.
Have a great day, friends!
