You're All That I Want Card

Hi everyone :)
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate it.

Wow, sooo much has happened in this last 7 days!  Firstly my partner & I broke up, which I was initially unhappy about after catching him with another woman but now I believe that he did me the greatest favour cos' he really wasn't the best thing for me.  So I'm ok :)

Yesterday, my best friend rang me & informed me that her Daughter was in labour & could I come over & give her some support she asked.  Within a few hours I was there & within half an hour I was there with her Daughter helping to deliver her baby on the bathroom floor!!  Yep...she didn't quite make it to the hospital lol.  Mother & baby boy are absolutely fantastic but WOW what an experience to say the least!!  It was being there at the birth that REALLY made me realise that there are SOOO many other things that are sooo beautiful & sooo much more important in life that its just not worth worrying over the small things that drag you down.  So I say embrace, enjoy & smile :)

My Daughter, Zoe (12yrs) ended up in hospital today due to her Diabetes.  She was staying with her Father & Step Witch (lol) for a week & when Zoe rang me to let me know that the witch had gone out & left her at home by herself for 2 hours her blood sugar levels were very high & she had Keytones (not good).  Needless to say I arranged to get her to the hospital & met her there.  We have been sitting in Emergency for hours on end but now Zoe is alot better, her levels under control, Keytones gone & she is safely home with me.

Its amazing how life can throw sooo many curve balls all in one hit lol.  However, I got through it & I'm determined to keep that smile on my face lol.
How was your week? :)

Anyway, sorry but I had to get all that off my chest.  So lets move on shall we lol.

I am really excited to share with you my first design which promotes the newest release of digital images at Digital Delights by Louby Lou.  I am enjoying being part of the Design Team & absolutely adore using Wendy's wonderful images.  This new set is designed around the 50's & reminds me alot of Grease :)  I have used Rockaround Sue on my design. I hope you like it.

The car is from the 50's Drive In Set.  I managed to be able to get her sitting on the car lol.  I think they both go well together don't you? lol

I have used a few of my new toys.  The Magnolia Doohickey, MS Branch punch & also the MS Lace punch.  Oooh, I can see that I will be using these a fair bit lol.  The DP is Bo-Bunny from my old stash & of course I have used Copics for colouring the image.

My Tip:  Have you found that when using Copics that they can sometimes loose ink & get all over your fingers & the pens themselves leaving them looking messy?  Try using the little medical alcohol wipes.  Not only will they get the ink off your fingers but it will clean the Copics too.

I have used WOC flowers & the ribbon is from my stash too.

The sentiment is from the 50's Sentiment Set.  I have also used pearls, stickles & a ribbon buckle.

Be sure to take a look at the fantastic new images at Digital Delights.
I am sure you will just love them :)

(This design is available at my Dreamtime Designs Etsy Store).
