Hey y'all! Happy Friday! :)
*giving a little update on myself. you can just scroll down to see my card, if you want.*
I know I've been a little quiet on my blog, lately. Truth is, I had nothing but a terrible toothache! Started one day and led to another and so on. After the second day and seeing my face somewhat (well, maybe quite a bit) swollen, I broke down and took some pain medicine. Probably, should have done that in the first place!...Finally, had some relief and swelling went down. a lot. Today, I'm much better.
I know most will and would say, 'you need to go to the dentist'. And normally I would have. Though, I don't have health insurance (for myself). So, you see it's not easy to just walk in or call around and pay up front hundreds of dollars, just to see what going on and then go from there. All I see is $$$ and I'm not sitting on a pile of cash. I'm not one for excuses, but I can't just go to any 'joe schmo' dentist either. I've had my luck with dentist, which isn't always the best. My last visit I spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars to basically have a bunch of teeth pulled. Which in the back of my mind, I question if some of them even needed to be pulled. And the tooth that has been bothering me is one that they said was good. So, you got me. And even when I had insurance I still couldn't afford everything that was needed to be done. Needless to say, I have a lot work to be done. Just waiting for things to fall into place for me. Hopefully at some point, they will. ;)
*please know, this took a lot for me to write. while I try to be 'open' with things, there are some things that are very hard for me. I feel I'll be judged (which really, even if I don't open up, I probably still will be?.) and guess you could say I'm insecure with myself about this, so that alone is a huge step for me to share about it. And I'm not looking for anything in return from sharing this. Just something I guess I felt I should do?...(I don't always have a way of explaining things. sorry.)*
Anyhow, on to my card.
So, I was touring around 'blogland' and was looking at the challenges that are going on. I came across the Altenew February Challenge. Somehow, I completely spaced about their challenge! lol Well, now I'll be on the lookout! ;)
The theme is: Gold and Glitter.
I am also going to play along with Inkspirational! Thanks, Darnell for asking me to play along! ;)
So, here's my card.
A wedding card, indeed! I did a little stenciling for my background, which I used a lighter pink for it. Hopefully, you can see it?...I didn't cover the whole card with it, just a 'here and there' thing. After, I stamped my image on some pattern paper, twice. Then, stamped my image over my stenciled background. Once done, I cut my pieces out and adhered one of them to the card (over my stamped image). Next, I used some 'gold glitter sticker hearts' to make a flower, so to speak. After, I added my second cut piece over the flower and to line up with my first cut piece. To finish things off, a few gold rhinestones and my sentiment (which, I actually added after stamping my image on my background). So, what do you think?!...
Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend! :)
