For Susan

The One Layer Wednesday challenge at Simplicity last week, was to make Susan laugh.


Last week was a very long week for Susan and her family. Their long time pet died last week after battling cancer. After many tears, Susan's challenge to all of us was to make her laugh.


That was a tough one, but here is what I came up with. Susan, if the image doesn't make you laugh, just think of it as ME after my daily 2-minute workout! Actually, this old gal looks BETTER than me after a 2 minute workout!!!


Stamps are by Rubbernecker - got them in Collinsville last month! Coloring is done with Tombow Markers.


Hope she gives you all a chuckle - Patti J.

I'm sure it would brighten Susan's day......I can understand how she would be feeling a little sad.
I bought a book to read on our return trip "Marley and Me" thankfully I finished it when I got home not on the plane cos I cried my eyes out for about an hour!!!!!!
