Long post alert!!

    I had all this art work completed and ready to post and we decide to get a much needed new printer/scanner.  I have been after my brother to agree to one that is wifi compatible.  Finally.  Now we had to figure out how to get things to work with my laptop.  So the art work sort of piled up again!
     The word over at Every Inchie Monday was hippo.  I just recently saw an adorable picture of a baby hippo on-line.  She weighed a bit over 300 lbs!  Some baby!  Mine is sort of a goofy looking gal.  She normally wears a pink tutu and dances for the movie (Disney) Fantasia.  Check out her performance here - Hippo dance. 

     The guest blogger over at Made by Joey's idea was to use a star.  I made a few cross ups with my lines but over all it is not too bad.

      The rainy weather and my general laziness of the moment allowed lots of coloring time.  I finished two pages.  As I may have mentioned, I work very slow on one of those.  Lots of layering and shading.  The pumpkin is done with my new Faber Castell watercolor pencils.  I so love those.  They are so much fun to play with!

      And lastly a few daily challenges for my Facebook group.  I like them all but I had a blast playing with the "alphabet day" challenge.

      Just returned from the doctor today.  Lab work.  Please say a prayer that my "numbers" are good.  I always get a bit anxious - that is just me.
      Have a wonderful day and thank you for dropping by!
