Hello friends! Well, Trevor has decided to put the military on hold for now. There are several reasons behind it, but I think the bottom line is that he's just not ready for that big of a commitment right now. He's a young-18, and I think he may re-consider in a couple of years. Either way, it's his decision and I'm proud of him for knowing it wasn't the right time. He is heading out to California on Tuesday to join Jeremy, and he's super excited. We went over my mom's today so they could say goodbye to Trev. They got Chinese food and a strawberry rhubarb pie and a cherry cheesecake for Trev - his favorites. It was nice. I always leave there with such mixed feelings, thankful for what we have but wishing it was more. Then I feel guilty for thinking that because I know I should be grateful for what I have and leave the rest alone, but it's just hard. Sad. I don't know.
Have you all been paying attention to the solar flares currently happening? My friend Kelly shared an interesting link on Facebook yesterday that I found fascinating, check it out:
Now for the good stuff! :) I have 2 things for today, first is my card for the:
I used Isabella Fairy, one of the new Dilly Beans images, printed her twice on Kraft cardstock, and colored her with Prismacolor pencils, mineral spirits, and markers. I kept the embellishments to a minimum to keep the focus on the images. I printed "twice as nice" out on Kraft and used an oval punch, then dragged the edges through a black ink pad.
My next card is for the:
I used Sollytude and colored her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Prismacolor markers. Felt flower and DP are from SU! Ribbon is from my stash.
