Geez, has it really been that long since I have posted? Life has really taken center stage at my house, and with some of it good and other stuff that was not so good, the month just sped by. Trust me, you really don't want to know all the details, but a very fast run down would be like this.....my baby (my dog) got sunburned, and I don't mean a tiny bit, MOST of her back, this was the worst part. I have been babying her like there is no tomorrow (I will have to post her in her new outfits I bought to cover her back until the fur grows back, too cute), have had major tooth aches and waiting for the new insurance to kick in, not fun, my daughter went back to school, and having to make sure everyday that her work is done or she wont do it (trust me past experiences have told me to keep on her, don't want another year like last year), and then I have decided to start working out again (which my trainer has been kicking my butt, lol). So that is my last month in a nutshell :)
With everything that has been going on, my crafting time has been zero. Boy have I missed it so much.
So while I have been working out, I have met some wonderful women, I go to Curves for Women, and one lady that I talk to alot she has beat Breast Cancer and now as of tomorrow is starting her reconstruction surgery which is going to take up to a year to fully complete. I wanted to make her a card last night so that when I saw her this morning, I could give it to her, just so she knows that her friends that workout with her everyday are thinking of her.
For this card, I used 2 different challenges. The first one is over at Whimsy Stamps Challenges and you are supposed to use eyelets and the second is a sketch challenge over at Taylored Expressions.
The weird thing, I was in a purple mood last night, and not knowing her favorite color, I decided purple would do. Curves primary color is purple and since I met her there I thought it was fitting. Funny thing is that today I found out her favorite color is lavender, so I was right on the money with the color scheme :)
I used Papertrey Ink cardstock and stamps. I really like having the ribbon coming thru the eyelets and tying in a bow. I colored the image with my Copics and added glassy effects to the pitcher.
I also made her a little something also, but I will will save that for another day. I need to get ready to go to bed, LONG day tomorrow. Up at 6 out the door by 630 and then my workout and the straight to the dentist and hopefully getting the most painful tooth taken care of. I am sure I will be in bed for most of the day tomorrow relaxing, so I will post again :)
Have a great rest of the night and an even better Friday!!!!!!
