Tilda with Roses & Sketch n Stash
Yea!!!! We are getting a very welcome dry spell, I was even able to get out and mow the lawn. Although the rain is due back tomorrow.
I have a big PRAISE to share with you all. My son in law struggles with severe back pain due to his disinegrating discs in his lower back. He is not able to work, it is challenging enough to keep up with farm activities and the kids while my daughter is at work. Today he had his disability hearing with the judge and it was approved... Praise God!!! This has answered many, many prayers. The next struggle will be surgery, they really want to have the disc replacement surgery but the insurance companies will not cover it... the only other option is disc fusion but this will cause him to have limited mobility. They are not sure just how much longer he can wait but God will guide them to the next step.
Today we went out to pick up a birthday gift for our grandson who will be '5 years' tomorrow. They have a large creek that runs through there farm and so we bought him his first fishing pole. I cannot wait to see him use it, the only challenge I see is whether he will have the patience to wait for the fish to bite - time will tell. His party is this coming Sunday, so I will have some birthday pictures for you next week.
Onto my card... I have been playing around with my colored pencils with a blending pen. It actually turned out really well.... the picture does not give it justice at all. The layout is from Sketch n Stash, stop over there to see all the great cards the DT made. I made the corner designs using a corner punch and snipped them out and layered to help them stand out. I used the same punch accent poking out from the sentiment. I used flowers, leaf punch and a teeny, tiny butterfly to finish it off.
Here is a close up of Tilda but it still did not bring out the true colors and details on Tilda.
