Hi there!
This week at Phindy's Place Friday Challenge Blog the challenge is  "water"...there are so many adorable Phindy's to chose for this one...but I went back to an old fav...Phindy's Mr. Brown on Vacation

I know the water looks like grass LOL

Recently went to a little river beach on the Potomac River and tried to use its color here - the river is a dark brownish green and was UGGGG-ly  (the river and my coloring!) on the first card i did..so redid and made it lighter..

Copics: E00,08,11,25,31...B05,32,93,97...C1,3,5,7

Have a blessed day!

I love your water and your coloring is so wonderful, as always! Looks more like the water I am used to....only true beautiful blue water that I've seen is either in a pool or in the Carribean. The ocean and rivers that I see are not very blue. Wouldn't you love to be floating on cool water and have a nice cool breeze. Guess I will have to stick with my ac and ceiling fans.

It's so true, Linda! The colors of rivers are not pretty like the blue water of the islands! Just look at the nasty fish my hubby just got out of a river. I think you did a fantastic job of coloring this! I always love Phindy Phri-days.

Great card Linda. The water looks realistic to me, doesn't look like grass. Beautifully colored and the senti is perfect!

Hi Linda - I've been having some problems leaving a comment on some of the blog when you have to select a profile. I think I've figured out a way around it and hope you get this one! I love this card and went right over and bought the image - he looks EXACTLY like my Father-in-law and I'm going to work it up for him for Father's Day. Your card is amazing - thanks for the inspiration, Dru
