Home... where the story begins...

Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Do You Stack Up
Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Inky Impressions Challenges

Good morning friends!  Welcome to my little blog today.  I just have a quick post to share another of Krista's wonderful images from Saturated Canary.  This little lady is called no bites.  I know... you're saying 'odd name for such a sweetie!', but she has an alter ego named my bite is worse than his bark and she's a bit of a vampire.  Ahhhh... now it makes sense, right??  Anyhoo... on to Miss "No Bites".

I think I say this with every Saturated Canary image I share, but isn't she simply sa-wheet!?!  Krista can just work magic with that drawing pencil of hers.  And lucky for all of us that she can.  IMHO.  I do feel bad for her little dog friend.  I have colored him up pretty poorly.  I tried to make him out like a pug but, it's a bit lacking, if you ask me.  Also, I don't think I've seen a pug with cropped ears... only floppy ones.  But they are so danged cute that I thought I'd give it a shot.  Oh well... try and try again.
