Long road ahead!

Hi! Just here updating again. Boy are things just getting foggy for me. I feel like I'm in a bad dream I can't wake up from and now I just feel mentally exhausted.

Went to see mom again and the doctors are being very unhelpful of WHY she hasn't been able to walk. I don't know if her body is rejecting the plates from the surgery or if she's just too weak...but all they give me are runarounds about "testing her further". I'm getting so tired of the "testing her further"...just be straight up with me...will she ever walk again? God I have been crying and haven't been able to concentrate on anything. I've tried sitting down to create...but it's not clicking once again. My mojo has been drowned by the worry...and not to mention taking care of my dad. He's not that bad...he's actually been tame...but who knows until how long that'll last.

Still...before this brain exhaust...I was able to create some stuff...so I'll show you so I don't just whine. This card was a set of 6 made for a swap hosted by my girl Melissa. The swap was to create a card using mythical creatures....so being I LOVE fairies I had to use this fairy. She's a digital stamp from Victoria Case Art Designs. This was my last time making any cards using LV's Copics which she now let me have since she won a Manga/Anima art markers at school. After this set...the other cards I made were using my Prismas. I may need to buy a new set soon as some of them are already becoming dry. Hope you like! AND I'm sorry about my whining and what not. I'll try not too update too much about my mom and try to focus on what this blog is about...stamping and card making. I don't want to bum my buds out.

Copics used:
Supplies:
CS/DP: KKiss, PPirrouette, Raspberry (?) Bazzil Bling, Bright White, & Bella Rose DP
Ink: printer
Stamps: digital VCAD
Embellishments: flat back bling
Others: MS Butterfly punch, Marvy Daisy punch, & white gel pen


Hugs,
Gabby

What a beautiful card Gabby!!
I'm sorry to hear your so stressed and getting the "run around" from the docs. I know how frustrating that is. I just want you to know I'm thinking of you and your mom. I hope she heels and walks to your door soon.

Gabby this is just a beautiful card and whine away dear. That is what us sisters are here for. I do hope that your mom gets better and the stresses of your life get better soon. I'll be keeping you, your mom, and dad in my thoughts and well wishes. I'm now following you so I don't miss many of your future posts. Hugs.

Gabby, huge hugs to you. I can only imagine how exhausted you are with the run arounds. :( I'll keep you all in my prayers!
Your card is so Fabby, of course. I love that fairy image you chose, she's so sassy and sweet at the same time. ;) Huge hugs to you - take it easy when you can.

Love this card. Well done. Super cute layout and great coloring.

What a beautiful card. very cute image.

You can vent as much as you like as far as I'm concerned. You need to otherwise it will eat you up. It's coming up on a year since my dad's heart attack and his recovery was slow and the doctors just as unhelpful. Hang in there.

Hugs

Sorry the doctors are giving you the run around. I can't even imagine how stressful this has been for you. I think talking about it on your blog is a great outlet.

Your fairy card is so pretty. I'd never heard of Victoria Case before and now I want a ton of them. As usual, I'm completely in awe of your coloring. Wow!

Beautiful card Gabby:) I'm so sorry for what you and your mom are going threw. I hope they are able to come back with some answers for you and that she will soon be home again and walking.

Hi Gabby, beautiful cards as always! So sorry the dr's are giving you the run-around. You definitely need to be firm and push them for answers when you're in that position. I remember my dad had to really be firm to get answers about my mom.

Keep your strength up, and we're all here to support you. Thanks for the blog updates... because we care :)

Hugs, Shannon
