Is it really Friday? PPF

Well here we are again... another week done and dusted. 
I always thought that it was an age thing, to comment on how fast time flies by, but this week I actually heard my son comment and he's only in his twenties... so maybe it's a fact time is flying!
I thought it couldn't possibly be that I'm getting older. 
Do you remember as a child how the summers would last forever?
The school holidays would stretch ahead for what seemed like months, instead of just six weeks. 
Or Christmas took an age to finally arrive. 
I just wish that these cold, grey, rainy days would fly by... let's get on with spring...PLEASE!

So what have I been up to this week?
Well, I have to admit I haven't done much in the art department, but here's a little something for the Paint Party Friday link.
I wanted to practice some more lettering and found this doggy quote.
The doggy paw prints are something I've wanted to do for a while... well ever since I saw Mufftypup's wet paw prints all over my new clean floor.
There's something about a paw print that just gets to me. 
I'm not sure why, but it just does.
It's like new born babies feet... I just melt when I see them. 

Along with the lettering, I also wanted to practice blending colours.
I may carry on with the blending, as I'm not sure that this is actually finished.
I always seem to have trouble knowing when to call it a day. 
Once I'd finished the lettering, I remembered that I should have measured and drawn lines in order to keep the letters uniformed. 
Oh well...
I had a lovely afternoon catching up with another old friend today.
We don't see each other for months on end, but have no problem carrying on nattering from where we last left off.
We first met in Qatar years ago and clicked straight away.
She now lives in Spain, but regularly returns to Scotland to ensure she keeps her Scottish accent! 
(haha... she'll like that)
She brought these beautiful roses for me... see I told you we get on well. 
She certainly knows how to make me smile... I in return baked her a cake. 
Personally, I think I got the better end of the deal.
So what makes you smile? 
Cake or flowers... or perhaps something else?
