So another journal page that I am linking to Art Journal Journey. Thanks to Susi and Valerie for hosting.
Today I am continuing the Lizzie and Wally story which will wrap up on Friday, I promise! 
So now Lizzie is on her way home, making a fun cruise of it in the process. Can you blame her?  Wouldn't it be fun just to be able to take off on a whim and spend the winter away? 
 I used paints and stamps and a black Sharpie to make the background. I stamped some images, and aged them a bit, and added them to the page.
And since I have finished making the Lizzie and Wally pages, and since it was a kind of quiet weekend, I've been making a few cards. I haven't made cards in forever, and my stash is dwindling. 
Always good to have a little card stash for those occasions you need them.
Or when someone like my daughter or husband say they need a card for something, which is often the case.
Here's a couple of them for today.

So not sure what I am up to today. I have a car that desperately needs a cleaning since yesterday the dog took off and went romping through the swamp across the street from the house. I went to coerce her home, and of course she was COVERED in mud, which got all over in the inside of the car, and it cleans up better when dry...
Little bugger.
But anyhow, that is all for me. Have a fantastic day, and stay cool!
(We're back into the heat here.)
