I think it's about time!

Yes...enough is enough! I know I'm like going out of my mind caring for dad and worrying about mom...but Jesus Christ...I'm really letting myself go! I've been so wrapped up in both my mom and dad's life issues that I've really neglected what make ME happy! I mean I have better update on my mom...1 more week or 2 and she'll be home!!! She'll be in bed for a few more weeks after and I'll have to help with having her walk little by little...but she's MUCH MUCH better health! It's time for me to clear my mind right? Plus with my sister coming in to visit and just getting constant criticism about my cooking and how I've been "keeping" my home...I had to call BS and just stand up for myself! I mean I'm not getting any help from my mom's OR dad's side...so who's ANYBODY to come and criticize me when I'm doing a heck of a lot! Any who...enough of THAT whinning...I actually have cards to share! Well...a card for today!

This is a set of 6 cards for a swap hosted by my girl Michele of Enchanted Stamper to use Stamping Bella's Ketto's! These Ketto girlies are to darn cute I picked me up a handful! Here I used Maisy Ketto and NO COPICS THIS TIME! :P I've been commented on about my Prisma loyalty...oh...you can trust me that my Prismas are my baby. I had just been using Copics because LV decided that she no longer needs them as she got some new markers AND she traded me the Copics for my Prisma pencils. Hmmm...so now I own Copics...lol! I've been using them because I paid for them since daddy decided they were too much so...so I wont feel I'm out money and just shove them in a box somewhere...I'm using them in combination now with my Prismas. They get along well to my surprise! Anywho...I also teamed up my Prismas with new markers I go...Bic Mark It's! I saw them on sale at Target and I got both broad tip and fine tip...lol. She's very bright huh? Well...bright colors cheer me up and recently I've needed the bright colors! Her wings are glittery...but you can't tell from the picture. I went in with a clear Spica Atyou pen to give the wings the sparkle. Oh...and that cute ribbon...yup...it was a RAK from Michele! I couldn't bare to use it...but it was the only cute orange ribbon I had! I still have a couple yards more and I'm gonna hoard it! :P

So glad you're back, hon! I am really happy to hear the news of your Mom doing so much better.

I love your card, I need to order a Kettos or two. I have a $10 gc. That'll pay for shipping.

Wow - great new look to the blog, Gabby. I never thought of you as a cherry person, but it's cheery and I think you need that around you. :)

Hey there

Love the new look. The card is so cute. It looks a little like lizzie I thought. Glad your mom's improving. Thinking of you.

Gabby! Okay first off, luv the new summery blog. Sooo cute! I feel like I'm looking at a cherry print halter top with some torn denim shorts. haha! I love your card! There was a great tut re: bic markers, I always wondered how well they fared on cards and coloring. Obviously VERY well as I love the brightness and saturation of yours! Awesome job! Welcome back my friend! One last thing...I can't stop thinking of Taylor.
