sc141 Tanking of you

I got to do a challenge today!YYYAAAAY! Todays sketch challenge was a little different but I like the end result. I used some stamps I borrowed from Mama Monday and some cool ribbon I stole from her.LOL! After I raved about Hambo stamps she decided to place an order and got this super cute tank and sentiment. I colored the tank with limepeel, black, and olive green prismacolor pencis and blended w/gamsol and stumps. I also outlined the bottom of the image w/French gray 20% to make the image pop a little. I layered the tank image (2" sq.) on garden green and basic black w/a 1/8" matt and added dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in black on garden green and layered on bb w/1/4" matt. I didnt want to put alot of embellishments on the card so I put two black brads at the top the of the garden green layer. My card base is old olive.

Now I have to back up a few days and fill you in on this weekend. The kids went to the Dr. Friday for check-ups. brayden got 5 shots and was not happy. Madison got 1 shot and has to an eye doctor b/c she failed her vision screen. Contrary to popular belief my kids hearing is fine. LOL! You wouldnt think that being around them for 5 minutes though! Saturday morning was the pepper festival and parade and we spent the day there walking around and playing. Saturday was the concert and laser show and we had a blast!! My oldest child Alana has no rhythm bless her heart! There was an area in front of the stage for dancing and Danny doesnt dance and I love to dance I took Brayden up there for a slow dance and then the girls wanted to go up there too. I took Madison up there and after she got in the crowd of people and realized the music was loud she started screaming wanting to go back. She does not like loud noises well let me rephrase that she doesnt like NOT being the one making the loud noises!LOL! I took Madison back and got Alana and my friend and her daughter went w/us. The band was on break so they were playing dance songs like electric slide, lean w/it, etc. By the time we got up to the stage electric slide was over and they were playing lean w/it so me and Tracy were trying to show Keegan and Alana how to lean w/it pop w/it. They were so funny!!Alana's feet were glued to the cement!! She would only move her body from the hips up I got so tickled at her. It was the kids first concert and they throughly enjoyed it! While the band was playing they were all sitting in a row in front of us clapping and laughing too bad it was dark and I couldnt get a good pic!

Sounds like everyone had a good time after we left you! Glad your hometown has that event that you all can enjoy together. Watch out, however, how you talk about my grands, their Nana just might have to have some words with you, Tee Hee. Madison really does not like loud noises, remember the very 1st parade where she kept her hands over her ears through the whole thing? Alana will get some rhythm, one day!!
