I stand in awe….

I stand in awe 2013

I’m so sorry I’ve been so quiet but I’m starting to feel much better. Went to the doctor got some meds, she did lots of tests and the results was pneumonia and how fun is that?? So now it has been 3 and half weeks and I’m finally feeling like I’m a person. That was not fun at all. I did what the doctor said lots of rest, sleep, drink water and take my meds. That really takes everything out of a person. No more about this for the rest of the year…. Over at The Outlawz Twisted  Thursday challenge has started and the twist for this week is to make a Circle card. So I made a circle easel card.

I stand in awe 2013  t

My beautiful Goldfinch is from I Brake For Stamps. What I did was look up the Goldfinch on line so I would get a good picture of the Goldfinch and this is what I came up with. I love birds, I have six feeders in my backyard and I keep them full all year long. Remember if you stop by I Brake For Stamps I have a coupon code for you at will give you 10% off your order, it is SAVE10PAT
The lace and chipboard I had in my scraps.

The bottom of the easel card I added a sentiment it is one you can pick up at I Brake For Stamps, love the words and how true they are. My rose is from Hobby Lobby in the bridle department. Added some pearl pen color pearl white.

These are the copic markers used to color the image. Here is the close up of the pretty Goldfinch.

I do have to tell you that the weatherman was right, it is raining out. So this is a great day to be in the craft room. Fantastic NEWS…. I know I had told you that I was in Austin Texas it was not for fun, my sister-in-law had brain surgery. I want to tell you that when she took a shower she was able to FEEL THAT THE WATER WAS WARM. So time will tell but this is a huge step for her getting her feeling back in the button half of her body. She is my HERO!! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope your week end is full of crafting time.
