Rainy Day Bear

Isn't he a cutie?  I figured with all the rain we've had lately I should color the bear with Copic's and make a card.  I used SU DSP and turquoise card stock and the ribbon is QVC self adhesive.  This is 'Rain or Shine' from Deedee's digi's and the little duck actually belongs with 'Popcorn Bear' Quick and simple card.

Journal Time: I know I've been quite sketchy lately with my blog and haven't been daily posting but I need to gather my thoughts and get my act together.  Mom is doing well, she like Agnes the nurse and enjoys the walks they take her on each day.  She says she doesn't know how long she will be able to stay there but will try it.  I thought she looked great and that well rested.  Now I'm going to get on with my life and start doing some traveling, touch base with old friends that I haven't seen in months even years.  I will still visit Mom every two to three days but I feel better about my decision and thank my brother for his support the past week.  I am still actively looking for a small RV and intend to start having yard sales within the next month.  I have stuff to do around the house before I put it up for sale but I'll be OK and move on with my life.
Remember 'Play it forward' each day do something special for someone be it a smile or a favor or even just a hug but do it!!
God Bless,
Jeanine

Oh Jeanine so happy that things are working out for you and even more happy that your Mom is doing better and settled in her new home. Enjoy yourself now sweetie and have loads of fun traveling. You so deserve it. Just be careful in all you do! Your card is so sweet. I so love the bright and cheery colours that you used. I so love this image. Reminds me that on the days it rains and feels gloomy, that rains helps things to grow or helps to give me time to rethink things are start over. Thanks for the pleasant reminder. Hugs.

What a cheerful card! Beautiful colors, and I love how you used the duck with it -- they look like they go together! Popcorn Bear is one of my favs -- such sweet little sets! Hooray for your mom doing well! That is some of the best news I've heard all week. How wonderful to hear that prayers have been answered! Hugs, Deedee
