Bethany Angel

Happy Monday everyone!! Well, not such a happy Monday for me. I had to take my 10 year old to the ER last night. He said he was having problems breathing. NOT what a mom wants to hear! So we spent 3 hours there...got there at 8:30 & got home close to midnight. Ugh. He's fine now....flu/strep/urine sample/chest xray all came back negative. Still not sure what was wrong with him....but as long as he's feeling better that's all I care about.

Then today my hubby had his follow up doctor appointment. Yep, 4 1/2 MONTHS after his surgery, he has a follow up. And it wasn't great news....he now has to go to another doctor. I will save that whole story for another day...




Somehow I managed to finish a card yesterday! This is Bethany Angel, an older High Hopes stamps but a doll none the less. Another that's been on my wish list for a while that I finally got around to ordering. And.....drum roll please....I colored her with my Copics! Not the greatest...I couldn't get the blending right on her pants....but I do love the colors & I love how bright & magnificent the markers are. The papers are Basic Grey Two Scoops.....can you believe I only have about 4 papers left in this 6x6 pad?? Plus some scraps. I hadn't realized I used that much! The flowers in the corner are all punched, & the bottom 2 were embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. The leaves are Martha punches, & the swirl is a Sizzlit die. The sentiment is from a Studio G $1 clear set from Michael's. I used Shimmerz Angel Wings on her angel wings...lol....Not sure you can see the shimmer, but maybe if you click on it...



Here's a picture of the inside.....same papers, same flower & leaves.....




Well I'd like to say the rest of the week HAS to get better, but that's just asking for it to get worse. If there are no more trips to the ER.....no more weird sickness/no sickness....& no one loses their job this week.....then it's a successful week :)

Oh, & I did manage to get 2 whole stamps listed on Ebay today......lol.....both are older Whipper Snapper stamps....click HERE to check them out! I *will* bet getting more listed soon!!

I am so glad that he is okay. That must have been scary. Hopefully it was just anxiety or something. I know you were hoping this surgery would be the end all for hubby. How frustrating On a good note your card is beautiful. I have copics and they sit on my desk. They are intimidating. Super job Michelle.

Oh dear, you're having one of *those* weeks. I'm so sorry that you had to go to the ER for your son, and that you and your DH are dealing with something from his check-up. Praying that ALL gets better...and fast!

I do love your Bethany Angel card. She's one of my favorite HH images, and the gold shimmer under her feet looks great. I'm going to have to try that!

Hang in there!

I am working backwards as I am so behind so just want to say I'm so glad that your little one is okay now hun - they are such a worry when they are poorly.
