Rough Morning

Hello everyone,

Hope all is well. I was out most of the day and did not get this post done ahead of time. Opps....
Well I was tired of the look of my blog so I gave it a bit of a face lift. I think it looks a bit more perky thanks to Leelou-blogs.com. This is one of her designs. She has all kinds on her site that you can use. Hope you like it. 

On a side note today is the magazines owner and good friends' birthday. A big Happy Birthday to you Colleen. 

Today's card is for the new challenge over at TTCRD magazines challenge blog. 

Our sponsor this week is 

OK, admit it how many of you are like this in the morning? I am not a coffee drinker but I do like my Diet Pepsi to help me get moving in the morning. 

I wanted to give him a little bit of a scruffy bear looks since it was early morning for him. I uses different brown tones of my copics on the fur then use rubbing alcohol  and a wash cloth to take off some and create more texture. 

It's hard to see but here is glossy accents on the creamer and the coffee. I didn't have a ribbon to match so I broke out my air brush and used my copic to match the robes belt. 

It was a long day of running errands and I am beat. So I am bringing this to a close. Have a wonderful rest of the week. 
Thanks for stopping by.

I am entering this into the following challenges.
