Back To School

Hi Everyone!
How has your week been going? We're getting ready for the hurricane this weekend. They're still unsure if its going to cream us or just miss us and cream the outer banks. Its good to be on the safe side so I'm off to see if people left anything in the shops for me.If not, well there's always my case of mallow cups.lol We may have to live off them if we lose power for any length of time. One thing about it: If I eat  them  all I'll be so dizzy I wouldn't know if it's me or the house spinning.:-D
To be honest, the only thing I'm worried about is my ducks. I'm afraid their pan will fly away to the land of Oz if we get a hurricane and where will my ducks go? Will they find a friendly scarecrow to point the way home?Will he point the right way home? Hold on, no, he doesn't have a brain, does he... See? It doesn't bear thinking about.
Anyway!

Oh Dorcas! I hope it doesn't "cream" you! I will be thinking of you this weekend.

Oh Dorcas...I've been watching the news about the hurricane...and thinking about you and your ducks!! I have never given much thought to ducks before, but now (for some reason...LOL!) I'm thinking about your ducks! Can't you bring them inside to keep them safe during Irene?!! You could keep them in your bathroom! Well...just be sure you and your family are safe!! Your card is just perfect, my sweet friend!! I love the way you make magic with those Prismacolor pencils!! You are brilliant!! Be safe, hunny bunny!! Hugsss...Pat

This is so cute, Dorcas! Great papers and wonderful coloring of the sweet image! I hope that the hurricane misses you in NC! Stay safe!

Debbie said...

How sweet is this, I love those corners and your coloring as always is magnificent.

and yes, I am listening to the news as we speak, they are scaring the crap out of me especially since I am right on the water if it hits my floor we are all in trouble. The surfers are out in full force really enjoying the huge waves...

Hugs
Debbie

Don't know that I've ever heard of anyone surviving off of mallow cup rations, but hey, a girls got to do what a girls got to do! LOL
Batten down the hatches and be safe!
Your card is wonderful! I just bought an art journal and I think it may become my colored pencil practice book. You inspire me!

She is so cute, this little one. And you colored her so beautiful.
We heard here in the news about Irene. I hope it will miss you, but then there are lots of other people who will have the misery. Then know you're in my thoughts and prayers.
Hugs and be safe.

Love this color scheme. This little school girl is ready for fall for sure. Been thinking about you and your ducks. If they fly South to Myrtle Beach during the storm, I'll keep them safe for you and send them straight home to Momma on Sunday.. Stay safe and God Bless.
