Treasured Friend

My Most Excellent Friend, Kimberly Hecker of Oak Pond Creations is having a Birthday Bash and I had to join in on the fun.  Kim is a friend that we had to convince to start a blog and now she is drawing and successfully selling her own digis.  The gal has so much talent in her that I am in awe.

Her digis on sale on her Etsy site are clean, crisp and easy to color. That is why I love coloring them.  She recently drew this one called Beach Crabs and I fell in love with those little eyes playing Peek-A-Boo in the bucket. Here's the link to her ETSY shop.  Grab one of her digis and enter into her Birthday Bash.  There is a fabulous prize at stake.

Here it is Sunday night and the weekend is almost over. I did not accomplish all I wanted to do.  How about you?  Do anything fun this weekend?  If you are from the other side of the pond, you are lucky.  Tomorrow is April 15th and the deadline for Americans to pay their Income Taxes.  How many of you spent this final weekend working on taxes? Not me chickadee.  Finished mine two weeks ago.  I used to be one of those who made the nightly news by showing up at 11:30 at my local post office to get my taxes date stamped.  Not anymore, thanks to the lovely internet.  I just file away from the comfort on my home.  Lots less stress you know!

Whatever is ahead of you this week, I hope that laughter is the largest part of it.  Hope to have more blogging time this week.  I have been peeking at your creations on my Dashboard, but I sure do miss the interaction of commenting.  Hugs, Crafters and have a marvelous week.
