Celebrating Another 100...and a First!

I'm going to start with the first because I pretty darned excited about it.  This card features my very first illustration-turned-rubber-stamp!  It's available from Starving Artistamps and I shamelessly encourage each and every one of you to order one, or even two!  I also have a lighthouse stamp that I illustrated, which I'll show you a little later, but you can feel free to buy that one too while you're there, lol!

Alright now, let's talk about the card itself.  I colored my image with Copic markers.  The colors I used are as close as I could approximate the colors for Color Throwdown Challenge #100.  So there's the 100, and it's a biggie, too!  Go check out the prizes (including that sweet Giggle Bears, Birds and Bees set from Starving Artistamps) that are up for grabs and tell me it not worth making a card and joining the fun.  Go ahead...try to tell me that! 

There could be yet another hundred here today, but I'm not celebrating that one.  It was 101 here yesterday, it's supposed to be near 100 here today, and tomorrow doesn't look much better.  Yikes!  Every day like this is 100 more reasons I'm happy we decided to spend the money to install central air in our house, which believe me, I am celebrating.  If you're stuck in this brutal heat wave, too, I hope you've been able to find refuge from the heat. 

Stay cool!
