Total Sweetness!

Man, shame on my friend, Debbie! She sent me this uber cute image. I'm in love! Normally, I tend to go for the long haired Tilda's. Oh, I'm in trouble now! This cutie was so much fun to color! Made me smile, and reminded me of Shirley Temple! Anyhow, this is my card for the Just Magnolia Sketch. Thank you so much for the image! Very cute!
I'm way behind on blogging this week. It's been a rough week. I'm never sure on how I should view things on life sometimes. Like should you be embarrassed about something, or should you just own up to who you are and say this is me....I'm really a this is the deal type of gal, and possibly too honest for my own good. The last couple years my cycles have been getting the better of my moods, and lately, it's more often. So much to the point where I'm fighting stuff every other month, and it's creating a lot of personal havoc for me. I went to the DR the other day, and started meds for PMDD. How nice of the DR to confirm that I can be a total bag sometimes! LOL! Anyhow, I'm hoping that in a month, I'll be feeling more like my happy easy going self, and less like a pitbull all wound up ready to attack. It takes awhile for the meds to start working, and the mood swings are due to my cycle, so I gotta wait for it to come again to see if it helps. Being a girl is hard sometimes! Sorry for the way personal detail, but it seems like just about every four weeks I'm going on here saying it was rough again...and this is why!

I have to share one other thing, this darling card from my MIL that she sent to my kids. I got my MIL into stamping this past year, turns out to be fair, because she got me scrapping. She lives far away, so I don't get to create with her too often, but she's been moving along on her own. I was so proud of how far she's coming on her own that I wanted to show it off for her. I love seeing someone else get into stamping, and knowing that she's enjoying herself with this hobby.
Supplies: copics, Magnolia stamp, SU sentiment, cardstock-cool carri, pink pirq, and ink, DCWV Sweet stack, primas, SU punches, nesties, stickles.

Woo Hoo on this adorable card!!! I'm glad that you like this Tilda. Hope the dr. is able to give you the relieve that you need. Your honesty is the one of the many reasons why I'm so glad you are my friend.

Oh yeah - just now caught that this is also for the JM challenge. My daughter has been home this weekend, so hopefully I can get one done sometime this week. Great job!

Hey woman, I would call you, but I don't have much of a voice and when I do talk I sound like a dude - it's not pretty, LOL. I'm proud of you for going to the Dr. and I truly hope that the new meds help out!!! LOVE your Tilda card! Love how you cut her out and the layout if fabulous. Your MIL is doing so great for being a newbie!!!
