Big Girl Panties

Good Morning my friends.  I hope your week is going good.  I had a doctor's appt. yesterday and have finally discovered the reason behind my severe pain, exhaustion, and other issues.  I have Fibromyalgia.  But, I cannot take care of that until I get the PTSD under control because I can't be medicated when I go see the doctor.  I have to be feeling all the emotional issues so that the doctor can prescribe the right combo of meds for the PTSD.  Go figure.  If it isn't one thing it's another..always.  But, I do have my crafting to help keep me sane.

So, here's a cute card that I made for a couple of challenges.

When I saw this sentiment from Create with TLC, I knew I had to use it on a card.  I love it!  The little girl is from The Digi Garden.  I used my Chromatix to color her in and the Fiskars Shape Maker to cut it out. I inked the edges of the image and sentiment with DI Vintage Photo.  I followed a sketch from Feeling Sketchy to make this card.  The card base is Old Olive from SU.  The DP background is American Crafts and the DP pieces are DCWV.  I added some gems from Queen and Co and the flower is one that I dyed using the homemade alcohol inks.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate it.  God bless y'all and have a great day!

  4. Hi, Emily! Love your darling card and the vibrant colors. I am sorry to hear about your Fibro diagnosis and the PTSD. I have had FMS since I was a little girl, and it is difficult to manage at times, but I feel fortunate to be able to enjoy life as best as I can. I hope your doctors soon find the correct meds to help you cope better! hugs, de
