    You ever have those days where you feel like your running around with your head cut off? Thats the kind of day I'm having. For those of you who don't know i'm part of a non profit organization called Born and Raised In Mendocino County that gives scholorships and awards to kids in 4-H and FFA ( I was both in 4-H and in FFA). Well my dad is president of this organization but hes out of town right now so Im having to fill in for him at the local fair thats going on right now. This means Im giving out awards and having to buy animals at the auction. WHO KNEW IT WAS THIS MUCH WORK?? I have so much respect for my parents who were 4-H leaders for over 20 years and now do this.  I finally got home after running around and forgot that I had a card to make for Speedy Fox and Friends.
      Ive really wanted to bust out my SU markers and watercolor paper lately so this is the product of that ( and of it being 11 at night when I remembered). The challenge over at Speedy Fox and Friends is to make a card with a back to nature theme. I think a lot of people think forest when they think of nature so I wanted to do the opposite. I used my su markers and a waterbrush to watercolor the sky , mountains and sand before I stamped the animals with Versafine. I find versafine works best on the watercolor paper because its such a wet ink. I love this set called Be Wild and Free from Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co. Its so cute and I love how it has more than just lions and zebras. Its awesome! If you come play along you could win an awesome stamp set from MFP too!
  Well im off to bed , have to get up early tommorow ( well I guess today since this will post Saturday Morning) and go to the auction to buy some lambs. Wish me luck and cool weather. Hurry home Pa this is too much work hahah.
