Magnolia's Ballerina Tilda "SWEET"

 Magnolia's Ballerina....all I can say is "SWEET"

I'm trying to get back in the "groove" oh man, it's been tough! I colored an image, and ripped it up...I was finally able to get several images inked and colored, we'll see how fast I get them made into a card :O)

I used the new Distress Limited color....Peacock Feathers.

Catching Stars

 Tilda Catching Stars "Happy Mother's Day"

When I make Mother's Day Cards, I always think of my Mom. Oh how I miss her so much, and don't think it's ever going to get easier! Losing her on May 4th, right before Mother's Day and my Grandson's birthday, it's tough....but I know my Mom is looking down from Heaven and wishing us the best and watching over us! I was so blessed to have a Wonderful Mother!!!

Shopping today :O)

Oh, went shopping today.  Finally picked up some watercolor paper and a couple more distress inks. Now to put it altogether :O) I am going to give another go at distress and coloring an image...wish me luck :O) Also picked up a couple of paint brushes and hopefully they work better than a water brush. It seems the water brush wants to stay too wet! Hopefully I will have another card soon.
I finally with hubby's help got the windows cleaned and the new mini blinds up. Tried to last week and it didn't work out, with Dad in the hospital and my daughter in ER too. If things stay calm I will get a card or two done. I do need to clean closets and then spring cleaning will be done, yeah!!!! Oh! almost forgot, hubby's steins need taken down and washed too...not looking forward to that, he has a bunch of them!!!
I was so upset yesterday thinking I wouldn't get to blog anymore, I was so stressed. I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I couldn't blog anymore.....
Hugs! Leah Ann

For those of you like me and Blogger :O)

There is a gear in the upper right hand corner...if you click on that it will bring up a list and you will see for the older blogger...it's working now, hope it stays that way!!!! Thanks so much for all of you who helped me, I appreciate it soooo much!!! Hugs! Leah Ann

Gosh Darn It!!!

Gosh darn it!!! I have everyone trying to help me, and so appreciate it, but doggone, nothing is working...I can view comments and I see where to post, but to find the dashboard, can't find it :( It make take me a year to figure it out. Mine doesn't look like it's supposed to in the doggone tutorials...figures!!! I'm too old for this crap!!! Can you tell I'm totally frustrated, gosh darn my blood pressure is going to be through the roof by the time I figure this out, if I figure it out :(
Sorry folks....I guess until blogger changes this, I'm done blogging!
I can't figure out how to bring the dashboard up, blog is all messed up, this may be the end of me folks!!!

ARGHHHH ARGGHHH ARGHHH Had trouble with Blogger UGGHHH!!!

When I first tried to get on this thing today, ugghh gave me fits. Getting tired of Blogger changing things, because then I'm lost!!! If they don't quit this stuff, I guess I won't be blogging.... :(
I have been searching for Hanglar stamps, can't find where to purchase them, and the hanglar site does not work....
Getting frustrated with Magnolia stamps...love them, but get tired of folks getting all the new ones way before everyone else does.....
So guess I will be looking for new images to love and use!!!
Didn't sleep well last night and sure that has something to do with my mood today...sorry sometimes you just have to VENT....I'm venting :O)
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!!

Tilda Catching Stars Criss Cross Card

 Tilda Catching Stars Criss Cross Card Happy Mother's Day
Challenges:
Wild Orchid Crafts Spring
Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers
Magnolia Deep Ocean Challenge

Kelly Pickler's A Mother's Day Song Lyrics
I pull the covers over my head
I pray there's some way
That life could skip a day to Monday
I try to count my blessings
It's a long, long list
For a girl who has so much
There's so much that I miss on days like this
I wish I could go to town
Buy you a card
That says 'I love you' inside a heart
And one that makes you laugh
Pick you flowers from our yard
You can set 'em in the window in a Mason jar
Dad will take our photograph
One two three
Smile, say cheese
Oh I wish it could be that way
Every mother's day
Maybe someday I will let go
But right now I'm still hanging on
Maybe one day God will bless me
With a daughter of my own
I'll have love I've never known
She could go to town
Buy me a card
Says 'I love you' inside a heart
One that makes me laugh
She'll pick me flowers from our yard
I'll set 'em in the window in a Mason jar
And dad will take our photograph
One two three
Smile, say cheese
Oh I wish it could be that way
Every mother's day
One two three
Smile, say cheese
Oh I wish we could be that
Every mother's day...
