ADFD: Add a Ruffle

Happy Labor Day!  Any exciting plans this weekend?   Cass and I are just running out to do some errands.  I've had a lot on my mind lately, I don't know if anyone has noticed how quiet I've been but I just sit here and don't know what to say.  Cass and I are lonely here in California.  We miss our friends and family so very much.  It just makes life so... different.  And I know I've been less-than-myself lately, so I finally told Jeremy.  He loves it here, though, and he wouldn't be happy going back.  So we've decided that Cass and I are going to find a house to rent back East, we'll head back in December and Jeremy will stay here with Trev for now.  We'll have to visit each other for a while - maybe I'll end up wanting to come back here in a few months and maybe I'll decide I was crazy to even try it.  But all I know is that I'm normally such a happy person, and lately I don't feel like that.  Not me.  And I hate it.  I can't even call my mom or sister or a friend and vent, because everyone is around me 24/7. I love hanging out with my daughter and we're so very lucky that we're so close - but I even know that is not "normal" and we should both be spending time with our own friends... :(   Sometimes I really hate being a grown-up.

Anyway - let's get to the art.  LOL
Today's card is for the:

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

Kraftyhands Challenge: Anything Goes
Creative Corner: Child's Play
Polka Doodles: Fairy Time
Cute Card Thursday: Things with Wings

I knew what I wanted to create for this challenge, but adding the ruffle was hard for me - I'm not a "ruffle" girl.  LOL  But I think it came out quite sweet!  The image is from ADFD and is called "Holding Fireflies with Wings" - the sentiment is from Fairy Jenn's Word Art.  Have a great Labor Day, friends.  Peace.

  2. Jenn, I'm feeling so bad for you. I've not been too perky myself, lately and apologize for not being around. I'm glad you and Cass have each other and your tough decision will work out for all involved but promise me we'll at least get together ONCE before you head back. In the meantime, hang in there. Love your card. So sweet and the black and white is lovely. xxD
