The image we are working with this month is Jaye and Feathered Friends. I have the honor of using this image the first week, and, as it happens, the image is perfect for a friendship challenge! Lucky me! I actually made a Christmas card with this image, so will be giving it to friends of ours for the holiday this year.
I printed the image on X-Press It BC and colored it with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:
Skin: E000, E01, E11
Hair: E53, E35, E37
Flowers: R24, R27, R29, Y15, Y17
Leaves: YG61, YG63, YG67
Birds: R24, R27, R29, W5, W8, YR07
Wings/Feathers: BG11, BG32, BG34, TTBG61
My DP is from the Jillibean Soup Winter Tortellini and Spinach Soup collection, and it was paired with Stampin' Up CS. I Zutterized the DP and my image panel. I used die cuts made with the following dies: LaLa Land Crafts Wings and Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily. That's all she wrote. Well, for the card anyway.
Gary and I went to Barrio Queen in downtown Gilbert last night for dinner. I happened to see a listing of the restaurant openings in the Valley of the Sun for the month of May yesterday. And I was so shocked to see that Barrio Queen had opened. I had heard that this was not going to happen, much like the first time we were teased with a Barrio opening in Gilbert. (The original Barrio Cafe in Phoenix is super-tiny and super-good! But it is a long drive for us!) I am doing my happy-dance right now. The food is just as good as I remember from the Barrio, with the exception of the chips, which seemed much too thick. (And that I do not remember.) But the Barrio pollo and carnitas are unsurpassed. Totally fantastic! Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum. And we were there early, so took advantage of the happy-hour $5 house Margarita, which is really, really good. Yup, like I said before, it is so hard to be me. Snicker...
Please stop by The Outlawz and check out the fabulous inspiration by my very talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, Vannessa, and Karen. And then join us this week, won't you?
Have a wonderful weekend!
