A – and A + + Art Day 2

tielia-and-i-1980 Day 2 Challenge.

This is my best friend from grade school and high school. 🙂 It is her birthday today! We were in 4th grade here. I’m the one without the hat. 🙂 Seems like yesterday. lol  I did the background on yellow cardstock and then used Bic markers to do the designs on the background. I love doodling. I posted this on her Facebook. 🙂 We don’t see each other much nowadays, drifted apart, but we do still talk and care about each other. Great friend, fun friend. 🙂

I dislike when someone takes the last bit of ice cream and leaves the container in the fridge. A certain young son of mine. lol  Of course, I think there is still ice cream until I go to get some and it is empty. 🙂

Watching when your child succeeds at something, no matter how small of an achievement. Love the smile on their faces. 🙂
