Sentimental Sundays - A Funny Card

Happy Sunday to you and welcome to a new challenge at Sentimental Sundays! :) This week we are looking for a funny cards and the only other condition is that it ould have a sentiment on card front!

Now my household has been very hectic last couple of weeks and will be the same for another while so I was looking for something reasonably quick to colour. Hence this fun image from Mo:

The card came together fairly quickly, I only had a chance to start it well past 10 o'clock in the evening and I was finished by 12.15. This is almost shocking speed for me. I guess it could have used a bit more twiddling but one needs to sleep occasioanlly, especially considering that both of my moleculs have built in alarm clocks that tend to go off about 6 o'clock in the morning.

Copic Markers:
Skin: E13/21/00/000
Hair: E49/47/44/71
Towel: R39/85/83/81, G99, YG95
Shadow:E39/37/35/33/31/41/40, 0
Scales: BG4913/32/11/10

Paper: My Minds Eye, Neenah card for image
