Kick Back, Relax and Enjoy....

I'm finally getting a chance to upload a card I made for MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge a couple of weeks ago.  It also took a few days to make since I was on migraine meds at the time. 

Since it's the start of the football season, I thought I would go with that theme and flip the sketch on the side to have more room and go with a fall color scheme.  I used the digital Let's Hear It For The Boys for the main image since it was already printed, and then pulled out the stamp set for the popcorn & saying.  Once everything was colored.  MFT's texture die-namic texture board was used on my layers.

So, I have just one question.....ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??!!!!

Happy Days Are Here Again!!

Now what parent doesn't sing that tune when the start of school comes around each year?   I know I did until my daughter became a freshman in high school this year; then she really became expensive. 

I finally felt well enough to do a MFT challenge AND get it done on time. This week's challenge had to do with back to school, blue, and using a Jolinne stamp.  Easy peasy.  I pulled out My Heart Sings Jolinne and stamped her on perfect panels then colored with prismacolor markers.  I'm so happy I didn't mess up the coloring since I'm out of practice. 

After layering on some MFT digital music paper and DCWV linen background paper, I was ready for the final touches: primas, 3 types of $1 ribbon, and silver baby braddies.

Migraines, Migraines and more Migraines.

You can't live with them, and I would certainly love to live without them for a while!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything on the blog, however, migraines are exactly what I've been dealing with since May.  It took everything I had to make my last post in July, and since then I've been having to go into the doctor about every 2 -2 1/2 weeks for shots just to kill the pain and other issues long enough to get some sleep and attempt to feel well enough to work he next 2 1/2 weeks to get some sort of a paycheck. I haven't stamped since then either.  My doctor's are trying to get them under control and figure out what is going on as well.

Please bear with me, as posting will be sporadic.  When I'm feeling well enough to stamp, or even look at a computer, I'll post, otherwise, I'm hiding in a darkened cave.
