Go Green at Fairy Fun Fridays!

Hello my friends.  I pray you are all healthy and the sun is shining in your heart (whether the sun is shining outside, or the sky is gray!).  Life is waaaay too short to live under a constant cloud...

Can I just tell you that yesterday was a mess?  I thought I had everything prioritized and ready to complete my projects on time, including dinner (which is always a miracle in itself!).  But THEN I found out that I not only had a dentist appointment, but also a doctor appointment.  Grrrrr!  At least they were not at the same time.  It was raining here in California yesterday, the sky was gray and I had to do two of my least favorite things.  How was I ever going to get it all done?  Ok... just one thing at a time.  Doctor #1 (check)  Doctor #2 (check) Dentist - yikes!  Can you believe I was there for over two and half hours?  I'm telling ya it was torture!  But (check) got that done too.  I made an appointment to get my permanent tooth (crown) in a couple of weeks (double check).  Hey, what's a little numb face for a few hours?  So... to reward myself, I went to Joann's!  Go ahead and tell me that you haven't done that too - lol!

Well, I have good news and I have bad news...  Which one do you want to hear first?  The bad news is that my DH is losing his job at the end of this month.  He works for New United Motor in Fremont, California.  They are shutting down after 26 years.  The funny thing is that my DH worked at that same plant when it was General Motors for 17 years before they closed.  Sigh...  I know that everything happens for a reason and God will take care of us.  That I know for certain.  How?  When?  Only He knows...

So here's the good news!  When I went to Joann's yesterday during the downpour, miserable from all my appointments, ready to shop...  I left the store with only one very small bag which held two spools of ribbon.  Yay for me!  Why is that good?  Because I am restraining myself from spending money which we may or may not have next month!  Yippee!  I was so proud of myself - lol!

Are you thoroughly bored now?  I have more bad news...  I have a 'dreaded' boy card to show ya.  The good news is that the theme this week at Fairy Fun Fridays is GREEN!  I chose this image called 'Party Animals' because I kept thinking 'Go Green' - go - car - color it green... hee hee!  You can purchase this digi from the Fairy Here.  It really is a fun image, don'tcha think?
I've colored with copics then used Diamond Glaze on the headlights and bumper.  It looks much better in person - lol!  Seriously... you can see more of the dimension.  The green part of the car is a second image I cut out and colored then glued on top of the first image.  In person it looks like it's gonna jump right off the paper : )

The sentiment is computer generated... hmmm... sounds familiar - 'yippee!' Where have I heard that before?  So there you have it.  Plain and simple.  I say, 'Bring on the girlie stuff!!!'

Sorry to hear about your DH and his job, we are going through the same thing here. The paper mill is closed indefinitely and there are 300 jobs lost, DH has been there for 24 years, but we'll all make it through this, good job on restraining yourself at Joanne's!!!!

OMG Lori your coloring is to die for! This is so cute. Sorry to hear about your DH. I think there are a lot of people who are having to become flexible. Gone are the days when you get a job at a company and work there till you retire. I will be thinking of you!

This is a fun card! Love that image. Thanks for playing along with us at Twisted Thursday! Hope to see you again this week--we have a free digi to play with if you do.

Hopefully things will settle down quickly with your husband's job situation. We went through the same thing last year. It was a little rough there for a while, but it did all work out in the end.
