Color Throwdown #32

Every once in a while something really speaks to me and I need to translate it to paper. This weeks colour challenge at Color Throwdown really did that.

The colours are lovely and soft and made me think of a conche shell. So I went to a lovely old stamp one of my faves. I got to playing with my Copics which is always fun. I thought that it was coming alonng really well; when I was interupted. By what? Just the sound of my twins coughing and crying; so like a good Mother I went to check things out. And not good at all YAK.. I won't go any further withthe details. However, today I sat down to finish the card, and again interupted.... YAK.

So I don't know if this is a sign I need a holiday; but I sure feel like I do!

Just looking at this card makes me think of Hawaii and that will have to be enough to get me through this bought of the stomach flu!

Hope your day is much better than mine!
