I can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last post. I cleaned my studio from top to bottom in that time. Although, you’d never know by looking at it today. What a MESS!!! Is anyone out there neat when they create? I’m NOT! As the end of the project gets near I get messier and messier!
Ok, I have to say I kept putting this card off. The longer I was away the more I didn’t want to get started again. My hubby said, “why, every time you do a card it’s better than the last”. What pressure that is! So, of course, everything to do with this card was as difficult and fraught with angst with every move I made. Which some would say was the state of mind I went into it. Although, it didn’t stress me out. I just walked away and forgot about it. So, finally, here is our “Little Princess’ First Birthday” card. Of course, it had to be pink and brown. As we all know pink is not my favorite color. Reminds me of Pepto Bismol. ICK!!! I only had it once in my life and you can see how traumatized I was by it!! Forever colored my outlook on life concerning pink.

Drew had to comment on his Autumn card I made and did the grass like I’ve done here. He LAUGHED at how sparse it was!! Yes, LAUGHED. He wished his Summer mowing job would have been that sparse. Some people’s kids!!

Bear with me one more picture.
I have never had so much trouble getting pictures as I did today!! I thought it would be a perfect day. The sun is shining for the first time in what seems like a month. Must be all that snow out there. It certainly couldn’t be a reflection on my photography skills. After all, I have about 50 photography books. Hmmm, maybe I should start reading them! Ok, enough whining!

A request from you all. I have not found a good hair color I like if you have any you’d like to share I’d love to hear them.
Thanks for looking and bearing with me and all my whining. Sorry I didn’t serve any cheese.
I love and appreciate all your comments.
PS I just did a preview and realized my second close-up is almost as close as the first pic. LOL I went to all the work to do it so not changing it now! I think I could go for a glass of wine about now. Do you suppose our left-over alcohol-free wine from New Years is any good?
Oh dear, have a good one!
One more thing. What’s up with those people at Apple that they don’t have Pepto Bismol in their dictionary???? They better get on top of it! I’m gone for sure this time.
