Just for You Sweetheart!

Hello friends! It's been awhile since I've posted. My attention has been on finishing up a quilt I had started waaaaaaay before Christmas, but wasn't done in time... so I was able to finally complete every last stitch and give it away! It was truly a labor of love ♥ Oh poop!!! I just remembered that I didn't take a photo - rats! I would have loved for you to see it. Well... my next two projects will be to finish my hubby's football quilt (shhhhh!) and then begin my son's dinosaur quilt (shhhhhh! again lol!). They don't know for SURE that I'm making these. I love surprises, don't you?

This week, my hubby is back to school to practice practice practice his driving to get his truck driver's license. He's been soooo incredibly patient through all of this. It seems that nothing has been easy from Day One! I am comforted by the fact that he is telling God that he wants whatever HE wants... not an easy thing.

I've also just found out that ANOTHER friend has had a mastectomy. For cryin' out loud, when is this nightmare gonna end? My 6 month check up will be on Monday. It's always a nerve wracking experience, but I am confident that my health is in God's hands :) This April will be FOUR years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer. God has brought me a very long way since then! I am so thankful for His tender care and how He has strengthened me. It has literally taken almost 4 years to feel strong emotionally again... If you think of it, say a little prayer for me for Monday's check up - thanks!!!

OK... I think I got a few of my stored up words out ha ha ha! Thanks for hanging in there with me :)

Today's card is for Fairy Fun Fridays! Isn't that a great name? I just LOVE fun!!! AND... we welcome the NEW Princesses to the team:
BETTINA
We also welcome MADDIE who is our Jr. Designer, and DEBS who has been given her honorary wings! Congratulations to everyone!!!

This is Valentine Gilly by Prairie Fairy Designs! She's all set to send her love to someone special ♥ The set (not shown) includes three image files JPG, PNG as well as full resolution colored PNG... She's colored with copics and accented with Glamour Dust. I LOVE covering white areas with Glamour Dust!

Of course her glasses needed some Diamond Glaze along with the heart :)

I fashioned a bow using 1/8" ribbon with tulle behind and a pink felt heart on top! I've also included a couple of my homemade scrolls which you can see behind the tulle. These are now gone, so it's time to create more! If you'd like to see my tutorial on how to create your own scrolls, you can find that Here. The products I've used are: Transparent Gloss Gel and Glamour Dust!
