She's a Doll!

Hello my sweet friends!  It's another week already...  Last week, a virus decided to take up residence in my body and I'm just coming up out of the Kleenex and cough drop pile to turn on my computer!  I would like to say that I haven't been able to eat, but nope... that definitely wasn't one of the side effects lol!  BUT, I am happy to say that I've now lost 3lbs - yippppeeeee!!!  Aside from this yuck I'm getting over, I have to say that eating a balanced diet (and less of it...) has made me feel much better.  I have acid reflux disease which I take a prescription drug to control.  I'm sure that you are fully aware that stress doesn't help at all with our digestion and other body functions!  We've had a TON of stressful things in our lives the past few years, and quite often, I've had to take Pepcid AC in addition to my prescription.  BUT, I haven't had to take the Pepcid once since I began following the First Place for Health "Live-It" Plan 4 weeks ago!!!  It's so awesome : )

Do you like roses?  It's my favorite flower!  Even though my yard is a mess, and I don't prune the roses as often as I should, I'd be so sad if I had to get rid of them :(   Actually, a couple of years ago, we had a gopher who ATE two of my rose bushes - how rude!!!

Have you taken a peek yet at Elisabeth Bell for SCACD new mini release???  They are adorable I'm tellin ya!!  This image is called Rose Petal...isn't she a doll?
I am totally in love with this stamp!!!  It's a good thing that Susana has more in stock for you cuz I'm all over this one lol!  She's colored with my fave copics, of course... Roses - R85 R83 R81; Leaves - G28 G24 G21 G20; Hair - E34 YR24 Y21; Skin - E11 E21 E00.

Don'tcha love the shimmery rose petals?  I've edged each petal with Stardust Stickles as well as the rose petals on the flower pot.  When that dried, I gave the flower pot a nice thick coat of Diamond Glaze.  I wondered how the Stickles would react to the Diamond Glaze - not a problem at all! I'm not sure if you can tell from this photo, but it really has a nice depth to it.  I'll be doing this technique again for sure!  Oh... the 'other roses' are from Prima and one from Wild Orchid.  They also got the Stickles treatment!

This sweet dp is from the BasicGrey Olivia paper pad. cs is a combination from my stash and DCWV Glitter Matstack.  The pink cs was run through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder. The ovals were cut out with my nesties.  Gotta love my tools!!!

Did ya think that I made a card without my 'Must Have' paper pens?  They are subtle, but very much alive!  The sweet little pearls were made with my Opal Paper Pen.  LOVE my paper pens (is that like 100 times I've said that? lol!).  And last - well, besides the ribbon and cute little threaded button on top of the bow... is another subtle something I've added on this card.  It's kinda like Where's Waldo? hee hee... I thought this adorable image called for a doily, so I plopped one (how's that for a technical term? lol) behind the ovals for a subtle background.


All Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps are 15% off until October 17!!!
Head on over to Susana's Custom Art & Card Design while they're still in stock!
Thank you, my friends, for all the kind comments you leave!  I treasure reading each one!!!  I totally understand the time it takes to comment and you've chosen to leave me a piece of you here ♥  I am truly grateful : )

Until next time...

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
