Spring is Coming???

Good Evening!! I was able to take some time to stamp and create this little cutie. She reminds me that Spring is coming!! I hope sooner than later, lol. The weather here has been up and down which is typical for this time of year. We could still get blasted with another snow storm or two yet. Today was just cold and rainy. I'll take that over the snow. :)
This has been a very busy week for us. We had appointments, sometimes more than one each day this week. WHEW!! Really wipes you out!! Today I went to the dentist, ugh. They found that I have an abcess tooth. The dentist said that as long as it is not bothering me that it can wait to be fixed. I was shocked. I thought those things had to be taken care of right away. Tomorrow I go for my infusion for my arthritis. I can't wait for that. It helps a great deal. Then to the pediatricians with Sarah. Another busy day tomorrow. Hopefully I can do some stamping later that evening.
For this card, I used supplies I received from a group swap. Love the swaps. AnywayShe took a picture of what her card looked like and I made mine to look just like it. It really is quite nice. I did finish the inside of the card too, something I don't usually do but am trying to do going forward. I started with a green cardstock base, Then added a purple polka dot patterned paper, then my image. My images were colored in copic markers. Tilda was popped up using dimensionals to give it some added dimension. I then embellished with a border down the right side and a swirl and leaves and a flower on the lower left corner. I added a gem to the center of the flower and stickled the flowers petals and the buterflies wings. I also took some Versa Magic Ink ( Sea Breeze) and lightly sponged in the sky.
Thank you all for your sweet comments!! They mean so much to me. I really do appreciate them and all of you!! I hope that each of you has had a beautiful day.

I'm Back!!!!

Oh My Word!!! I have been gone like forever. A winter break I suppose. It's been one thing after another. Hopefully things will settle in now and get back to some sort of normalcy, if that's at all possible, lol. I have some good news!! My daughter is home from the hospital!! YAY!! She was released about three weeks ago and has been doing pretty good except for the occasional mood swings. That could entirely be her age. She is going to be 15 on March 21st. My Baby, my Son turned 20 on Sunday the 13th. He surprised us all by telling us he was moving out and getting his own apartment. My Son lives with my Mom. She is a little leary but wishes him well. I too am a little worried about him being on his own but I guess, sink or swim right??? I think he can do it but he is really going to have to change things. He does not save money at all. Could be a problem. The other big problem he is facing is he doesn't have a car. YIKES!!! He's looking when he's not working. Problem is he works so darn much. Ah well, always something right. I have been sick with an Upper Resperatory Infection. Boy is it a doozy. Two rounds of antibiotics and I still don't feel 100%. I'm just so tired and my ear still really hurts too. Time will tell.

On to the card...I started with a white card stock base, added a cherry cobbler layer, on that I wrapped some cotton lace around it, I took a page from an old encylopedia we had laying around that we don't use anymore, lol, and cut a piece for the side. I cut out Tilda with Nesties and popped her up to give it some dimension. To finish off the card, I added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a charm from The Charm Barn, neat little place to get charms, inexpensive too, I thought. I Used Crystal stickles on the rim of the umbrella and Crystal Effects on the rain drops and the puddle to make it look like real rain. All in all I think it turned out ok, What do you think????

Sorry I didn't have the copic colors for you, I actually did this card several weeks ago and am now just getting to posting it. Busy, Busy, Busy!!! Hope you all have been doing well. Would love to hear from you!! Missed you all!!

Enjoy what's left of the evening and have a great day tomorrow!!
