I played.....

This image I got from Sandy oh she loves the Magnolia's so she shares with me. I love pink and brown so this paper from Paper Studio's Coco & pink is just my style. I used Copic's to color the young lady and a dog tag from Eyelet Outlet that says 'Love You'. I distressed the paper and loved the flowers with heart brads from Eyelet Outlet also.
This card is also using Paper Studio paper but its an old SU set that I love to work with. I colored the image with Copic's there wasn't much to color but I still love the paper and the final card.
I have been in my Studio for the past two days trying to get out of this boo hoo poor me syndrome. Well I have made a bunch of card and it takes my mind off my problems but my train of though just keeps changing one minute I'm making Valentine cards then I'm making Easter cards, heck I got the stuff out to make a Star book and then I got on the Internet and the next thing I know it was time for me to be at my short order cook job. Lately Mom hasn't been happy with what I make for dinner so since she is losing so much weight I feel like I have to make something she will eat. So I've surrendered to TV dinners since she doesn't eat much but heck she can't even tell you whats she's eating. Her memory is so bad and I can see that it is effecting her more and more each day she feels totally lost and dependent because she doesn't even know what time it is, her eye sight is gone and she is legally blind. Life is wonderful but once I get to the point where I have to depend on someone I want to go home, I don't want to be a burden to anyone. Ok I've said enough this blog is more of a journal for me lately instead of a fun thing.
God Bless all of you and know your in my thoughts and prayers.

Awwww.........I LOVE how the little girl rolling dough turned out! She's so cute!!! I'll have to show Caitlyn. She loves that stamp and begged me to get it because she makes cookies with my mom quite often.

Don't be discouraged! I'm sending you an email in a few minutes!

I'm praying for you!

Granny, both cards are just beautiful. I really really love the 2nd one. I think it's the pink & gray, lol.

Sending big hugs your way... hang in there.

I love that little Magnolia rolling out her dough! So cute! It's no small thing walking with a parent in the way you are. Blessing on you today, may you have an extra measure of joy rolled, sprinkled up, and poured over!
