Hello dear friends!
This darling image was one of four images that I won at For Fun Challenges a couple of weeks ago. It's by Sassy Studio Designs, and I thought she was absolutely perfect for this week's Pirate challenge at CCEE Stampers!
Hope you like it! All coloring is with my Koh-I-Noor Pencils and LOMS. CS is DCWV

What an exciting Sunday we had. We went to a neighboring city about 1.5 hrs. away to watch our dear daughter participate in her first half marathon. It was amazing how many people of all ages, body types, and physical condition turned out to run this race. It was also fun to watch the 'cheerleaders' for other runners. We spent a very nice morning, in beautiful weather conditions watching Melissa start AND finish this race. For those not familiar, a half marathon is 13.1 miles. The race officials said this course was actually 13.2. We are so proud of her for attempting and finishing. The course had many inclines, and some of the inclines were steady uphill for a long way. Anyway, thanks for listening to me brag a bit, and for looking at our photos.

Crossing the finish line... the 5k runners and race winners were cheering on others as they finished.
Have a great week!
Hugs and smiles!
