Let's move onto happier thoughts! Tomorrow we are leaving for PA for our grandson and granddaughter's birthdays! . Now here is an interesting fact: Two of our daughters had two children in different years from one another. Renae's children birth dates are; Tyler March 21 and Travis August 15. Amy's children birthdays are: Abbie September 15 and Andrew September 21st. The days are the same! 15 and 21st! Two of our grandson's were born on the same day ...one year apart! Son, Richie was born on the day his grandmother died and the same day as his cousin's b/d only one year difference. The list goes on and on!! Just thought I'd share our amazing dates! Do you have any in your family?
My get well card is using an image from coloring pages for children and I believe it is from this site. You will find over a thousand images in Jpeg format that you can save to your computer and they aren't cheesy images either and all kinds of characters including TV, history, movies, etc. ! Have fun surfing!

Tip of the day: You want to color a lighter color with your copic, however, you only have the color in a dark shade. Pre-soak your paper with the colorless blender solution or 93-95 percent rubbing alcohol first with the colorless blender brush. Make sure you do not go over the lines for the color marker will follow the colorless blender solution. While it is still wet apply your darker color and it will be slightly lighter. You will use less ink, since your paper is already saturated and your color area will be smoother. This is really good to do if you are coloring a large area.
Don't forget if you get color on your colorless blender pen to wipe it clean on paper or paper towel. You do not want the color to enter your clear solution or you will no longer have a colorless blender.
Have a great weekend everyone!! BE SAFE xoxoxo
