Just for you

Ok, it's almost 9:30 pm --I still have to fold laundry, put dishes away, check homework (hope it's right, since my kids are both in bed & unable to correct it!) & make lunches for tomorrow. But --- priorities --- must post my card!!

I don't even know why this is my hobby --seems I get SO frustrated every time I make a card. Either I don't have the right color ribbon or paper -- or my coloring is not right ---or, my sewing machine poops out & I want to throw it out the window! That's what happened tonight -- I really need a new one. The zig zag part is long gone --I can only straight stitch ---& sometimes that doesn't even work out. The thread kept getting caught & I'd have to redo the bobbin & I can barely see the hole in the needle (gotta stop putting off getting the bifocals!!) & I swear my blood pressure goes sky high, lol! Such a relaxing craft this is!

ANYHOO ----- here is my card ---made with Cherry Tilda from the Cozy Autumn Collection. I colored the image with Copics --- & because the coloring part of my card didn't go so well either, she is cut out & ever so lovingly placed on the Bench. The papers are Basic Grey Bittersweet & Autumn Leaves & the sentiment is Hero Arts. Lots of Stickles & punches & dies & flowers --the usual :)

I used the sketch from this week Friday Sketchers blog. I am also entering this into the Totally Tilda challenge (Fruity Tilda) & the Magnolia Down Under challenge (Flower Power). Gosh I don't think I've ever entered more than one challenge at a time --I'm usually not organized enough to even know what challenges are out there for the week!

Thanks so much for visiting, & for listening to my rant :) I'm going to go finish my household duties then go to bed & try to NOT think about all the things I have to get done tomorrow!

Wow - what a gorgeous card Michelle - even if it was frustrating along the way. I have those times when I could just throw my desk out the window! Yet, other times, my card comes together easily and quickly.

Sometimes life just seems so crazy doesn't it?! It's just seems like we can never catch up and that we are running around in ever-diminishing circles nearly disappearing into ourselves!

Hope you are having a better day today Michelle :-)

So beautiful! I just love the coloring!

I miss you and I'm so sorry I have not been around visiting lately...or I should say since probably a year ago. I have been so bad with commenting and I'm going to TRY to be better!

Love all you have been doing.

Well after all that it turned out beautiful! Your coloring is always perfect. I'd rather color than make cards, always hard finding something new to make!
