IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE

ARTIST:  IKE - IKE'S STORE















and for my next piece on the THEME - LET'S MAKE A FUNNY
I have used IKE'S ART called 

Ike's art can also be found on STITCHY BEAR DIGITAL OUTLET SHOP

I am not naturally a "funny" person but there are a very few things that can get me going:
and

This is a picture of my daughter Ayla talking on her cell, carrying her big handbag, wearing her Diva clothes, walking at the Marathon pace that she does and BOOM straight into a Lamp Post.

I am sorry, but I laughed and laughed and laughed
and could not stop laughing
to the point of a total
hysteria.

Ayla was NOT amused!

I asked IKE to sketch up this picture to replicate this incident.
When I saw what IKE came up with, there was not one thing missing.  This was exactly the picture of the Downtown Toronto, Queen Street (Yuppieville) incident.

I laughed and laughed all over again.

Thanks for that IKExox

It only happens about once a year or twice a year!!!








p.s. Ayla is a Marathoner. She is a Divagirl.  She is obsessed with her Cell.  She does walk at a pace I can NOT keep up with and she is constantly turning around and saying "Mommmm Keep Up" and she is the best daughter I could have as a best friend!!! xox





I had to include this shot because it was IKE who made this gorgeous flower for me.  I have waited for the perfect time to use it!

I also used my mixed media tools.  I sprayed the chippy board, used Noir Pastels around the edges and circles and washi in different places.  I had a blast with all my different pens of various colors creating designs all over the place!!!


HAPPY TUESDAY
SAMARA

    1. I could not agree more Anne, though you wouldn't believe how many of my friends (and I am Jewish!!!!) I had to explain this to. hahaha And I worked in a Hospital so the "find the Doc for me" made perf sense to me, but also a "Huh?" so you don't know how much your comment compliments me and makes me feel better! hahaha Blessings, Samara x
