Hi everyone... Thanks for stopping by today. I so rarely use purple for card making, but something told me GET SOME PURPLE PAPER! And this pretty paper just called out to me! ha Tilda was colored with copics, the ribbon is by MS - a seam binding that I colored with copics to match my paper. Heart Nestibilities. Prima flowers. Actually these beautiful flowers gave me the inspiration to use purple. The little pearls are from wedding section at HL. Butterfly is from Magnolia. Thanks for visiting...

SOME OF YOU KNOW AND MOST DON'T THAT I HAD BACK SURGERY IN JANUARY. COMPLICATIONS AND CAUSED ME TO NEED BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS, SURGERY WAS 2 HOURS LONGER, NEW HARDWARE WAS TRUCKED OVER TO BE USED AFTER THE EMERGENCY. THEN IF THIS WASN'T ENOUGH, I WAS GIVEN FOOD BEFORE MY STOMACH WAS AWAKE. SO I GOT DEADLY SICK AND WAS RUSHED BACK TO THE HOSPITAL AFTER BEING DISCHARGED. MY STOMACH WAS THEN PUMPED AND I LOST NEARLY 20 POUNDS IN 3 DAYS. SO ANOTHER WEEK IN THE HOSPITAL. NO FUN! AFTER STARTING TO RECOVER FROM ALL THIS, I GET BRONCHITIS AND THAT LASTED ANOTHER 6 WEEKS. AND NEXT CAME A STRESS FRACTURE IN MY FOOT. I WAS TOLD WHEN YOU HAVE SURGERY AND THEN COMPLICATIONS ADDED TOO THAT YOUR BODY IS DEPLETED OF IT'S CALCIUM. UGH. I DID NOTHING TO CAUSE THE FRACTURE. SO I'M IN AN ORTHO BOOT TO MY KNEE, AND A BACK BRACE. I LOOK A MESS! AND CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU HOW BAD MY BACK STILL THROBS. MY FOOT AFTER 3 WEEKS IS STILL SWOLLEN. PLEASE KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYERS. THIS HAS BEEN A LONG JOURNEY FOR RECOVERING. I DON'T FEEL GOOD ENOUGH TO DO MUCH CARD MAKING LATELY. SO THAT HAS BEEN WELL MISSED! I TRY TO DO THE NEEDED CARDS FOR THINGS COMING UP AND THAT IS ABOUT IT. TAKE CARE.
This is a graduation card for a friend's daughter. I love the cute little Tilda. Not a typical graduation card with drab dark colors. I wanted to have some LIME GREEN in mine! ha. Thanks for stopping by to visit....
