Better Late Than Never...

Man, I hate when I can't get to blogging.  I blog almost every single day, and I really miss it when I don't.  I've been so crazy busy the last few days that I didn't even get a chance to blog and enter a couple of challenges I had created cards for last week.  I'm going to save them for another time, but I did want to share a few of my DT things with you before the week gets away from me.  Before I do, I'll give you a quick update:  My mom is healing, but my step-dad sounds extremely stressed.  His mom, who was bedridden with Alzheimer's for many years, passed away in the middle of all of this going on with my mom.  I am still trying to plan a way to get back there next week so I can help out for a few weeks, and I guess the stress finally caught up with me.  I had a headache all day yesterday and then woke up in the middle of the night with a full-blown migraine.  I blew the blood vessels in my eyes from throwing up and looked pretty scary today, if I do say so myself.  LOL  I just keep repeating to myself over and over again that things are going to get better and life will be back to "normal" soon.  I'm a planner and this up-in-the-air stuff drives me crazy.  I need to know if/when I'm going back there and for how long.  I need to plan!  Hopefully, I should have it all straightened out by the end of the week.

So anyway - these are both from Saturday, but you get them on Monday.  So the first is an ATC for our challenge at:

I would like to enter this little ATC into the following challenges:

 I used the White Rabbit digi from Digi My World, and I paired him with some paper from my stash and a little clipart of a time piece that I outlined with Platinum Stickles.

We also had a winner's post today, and the start of our Summer break at Just Some Lines:

I used the new image that Jehanne named after me (how cool is that?  hee hee), Jenn Holding Balloons, and I colored her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and then added some red Stickles to her shoes and the heart on her shirt.  Papers are from MME, ribbon is from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:



  1. Jenn, sorry to hear that you and your family are having such a hard time at the moment. I hope it improves soon.

    Two fabulous cards. Love the one with your image on! You haven't given her bloodshot eyes though, lol. She is beautifully coloured.

    Thanks for sharing with us
