Oscar and Olivia

Hello fellow crafters,
This morning, John and I had a delicious brunch in a nearby village with our lovely neighbours at a little coffee shop/gift shop/nursery which is owned by some mutual friends of ours. We had a most enjoyable couple of hours, catching up on what each of us have been doing. We laughed heaps, not least of all, at all our 'aches and pains'...Charles was recovering from a 48 hour 'tummy bug', Rosalie was covered in bruises from a nasty fall at work 2 nights ago (she is a midwife), and a few weeks ago, I tore a ligament in my right ankle, broke a toe in my left foot last week, and last night I got up off the sofa awkwardly, and 'cricked' my back.

As a result of my 'socialising', I had to rush this afternoon to colour this adorable image, 
and produce a card to enter in a challenge which ends in a few hours. 
This too, too cute image is by the very talented Heather Valentin, and Heather offered it free 
to anyone to use to enter the challenge. Thank you, Heather, I love these cuties. The cardstock
is more lemon than it appears, but the fading light may have contributed to the incorrect colour.
Using my Promarkers, I coloured the little otters first, then coloured the water 
over the top of the Almond and Satin colours.
Inside the card - I'm sorry the image is so blurry, but by the time I uploaded
the photos, the last of the daylight had faded, so I couldn't take any repeats.

I would like to enter the following challenges:-
Lacy Sunshine #8 - 'Anything But A Square'
Animals Friends #2 - 'Checked or Striped'

Image - Oscar and Olivia digi by Heather Valentin (Lacy Sunshine Stamps)
Colouring - Promarkers
Checked Paper - unknown
Dies - Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Classic and Scalloped Circles, Labels Twenty; Marianne Flowers; Cheery Lynn Branch Strip
Gems and peel-off sticker - from my junk stash

Must dash off and cook dinner - we are having seafood tonight.

Until next time, happy crafting,
Jennifer. x
