How can it be Wednesday already?

Seriously, how does that HAPPEN? It was *just * Monday.....the kids were groaning about going back to school.....hubby was groaning about going back to work....where did the last couple of days go??

Well I whipped up this card this morning, since I've been working on some High Hopes stuff that I can't show you yet. I had to show you *something*! But.....I didn't realize how PINK this card is, until I was editing my pictures!! Yikes!!! Fluffy cotton candy pink!!!



I know I've mentioned before how much I adore the Hanglars, & how unfair it is that we can't buy them in the US.....but thanks to friends like my fellow diva Nikki, I do have a few images to play with. I was recently blurfing, & saw card with a Hanglar with a STRAWBERRY! Is that one new?? Oh, how cute it is.....hint....hint...for anyone out there that can get a hold of these stamps :)

Anyway, this girlie is colored with Prismas & gamsol. Went wayyyyy overboard with the Basic Grey Bittersweet paper....added some flowers, a flourish, & some pearls. I think it still needs something, like a charm, but that would have to be attached to the flower & no way I'm taking that apart!! I added some mesh behind it & it took a lot of doing to get it exactly how I wanted it, so it's staying put!!! I will just have to be happy with it the way it is.




Did I mention that High Hopes is releasing MORE stamps this weekend?? It's true......more fun stuff is being released this Sunday, & the divas are going to start posting sneakie peekies on Thursday. Watch the High Hopes blog to see who has peeks!! I'm scheduled for Saturday, I'm going to try like heck to do another day but I seem to be moving in slow motion this week so we'll have to see. But I will definitely have something fun for you on Saturday!! Oh, there's also some GREAT news as far as shipping to the US goes......it's posted on the blog right now so go read it!! You'll be thrilled!

In other news....I finally got my sleep study scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd. I was supposed to be there overnight, & then the whole next day, but they can't find anyone to do a day on the weekend. Dumb, huh?? So I'm skipping that part. It's only needed if they don't find apnea, & I'm pretty darn sure apnea is my problem. So we'll see....cross your fingers that I have apnea, I get a mask AND I have no problems with it. I've read about lots of people not being able to get used to the mask so they're then back to square one.

Also, my husband is going back to the hospital next week Friday for another procedure, to find out what's up with his esophagus. Lord help me if he needs another surgery & will be home for 8 weeks again!! Argh!!! Work is still shaky......they did lay off more people on Monday, but not hubby. He said he's almost next in line though, so if any more happen, he'll be on that list. Keep crossing those fingers for us.....I have no idea what we will do if he loses his job. I'm seriously considering getting a pt job at either SuperWalmart or Sam's Club, just for the summer to help with the bills. Working for the school district is great, except for some reason they don't pay you in the summer!!!!!!

Thanks so much for visiting.......& if you're reading this, thank you for listening to my ramblings, lol!! Sometimes a girl just needs to chat!! LOL!!

Beautiful! The cotton candy pink really works on this. I love the Hanglar images too. I managed to get two of their stamps on the SCS board but still haven't found a place to purchase. If you do find one, let me know!!

Trina said...

I don't think this card is too pink at all!! It is adorable and I love the image and the designer papers you used!! Swirls make any card look amazing too...don't you think??
I hope that things go better for you and your family in the future...that everything gets figured out and you have more time to make cards...(that last part about the cards...I'm always hoping the same thing about myself actually...too bad it never seems to happen!!)
I love taking a look at your blog..and love the recipes! I think I hear the blueberry's yelling...time to make Michelle's muffins..lol!!
Have a great day!
Trina
