There She Goes Tastes Like Chicken!

And according to my DH...it does! EWWWWW!!! He's actually had possum! *GAG* We have one that passes by in our yard on our brick wall and OMG he's sooooo creepy looking! His beady little eyes...*shivers*! Still I could use this possum to stamp! When I saw this set I initially wanted to use the possum for the sneak peek...but HAD to use the couch for piecing practice. I'm getting a bit rusty there! Anywho...I was googling possum pictures and came across one I had to use! It was of a possum in the middle of the road and apparently the ones who paint the street line dividers didn't bother moving it...or just thought they'd paint over it for kicks and giggles! I hope this card gives you the giggles! Please...no hate comments! From looking at some posts on SCS about this set...not everyone likes or even gets the humor to this! I'm the kind who loves humor...so this is so me and I so get it! LOL! This card is yet another try at my hand with Copics. Practice is needed...so be gentle with your comments! LOL! Notice how I made the LO to look like the road? LOL! Thanks to sketch challenge #220.

No hate mail here! LOL! I love it Gabby! Even you can take a dead rodent and make it fabby. LMBO! :D Thanks for the smiles today, he's colored in so well...okay. Now I'm shivering. Ewwww...but this reminded me to start dinner in the crock pot. LOL!
Btw, I do love your new blog. At first I missed the bold b/w look but the more I see this, your header is almost like a diary, confessions indeed. ;)
