Hubby had 5 teeth pulled yesterday so we're having a nice quiet weekend at home, which allowed me to spend some time in the craft room. This weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge is nice and simple so I was the perfect time to jump in and play along.

I recently colored this Fly Agaric image from Power Poppy during the 30 Day Marker Challenge. I LOVE these mushrooms, they are my absolutely favorite. They are Amanita Muscaria aka Fly Agaric but I call them the Alice in Wonderland mushrooms. The transformation and colors they go through during their short life span is just mesmerizing. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my photo series last year when I followed 2 Fly Agarics over a weeks time and showed how quickly they transformed. From their colors to their size it's just a fun change to watch! I normally see the Fly Agarics in mid to late Aug but this year they started popping up all over my yard in July. I'm guessing it's because we've had a pretty wet summer.

I used some retired SU DSP for my strip going down the side (the opposite side of that paper has pics of Fly Agaric, that's why I bought several packs LOL). The sentiment was stamped in Poppy Red and the image panel is popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
