I'm baaaack!

Holy cow it has been over a week since I last posted. I didn't think it had been that long but then again my mind and emotions have been on other things. There has been so much daughter drama around the house and mom has been on vacation for almost 2 weeks so I've had my head full of things.

For those that don't already know we have 4 generations (7 soon to be 8 bodies) living under 1 roof. Our daughter and 2 grands moved in with hubby and I almost 2 years ago. Then a few months later our basement was finally finished and my mom moved in. My daughter had our 3rd grand in June of last year and is now due with our 4th grand in October. Right before the 4th of July all H-E-double hockey sticks broke loose with the daughter and my emotions went on a Six Flags roller coaster ride for a while. lol

Well things have settled down a little (or I've just taken better control of my head and heart) and I am feeling like creating. Yep the mojo is coming back a little bit. I have been working on a couple of things that can't be shown yet (birthday cards and shower decorations) but here is a card I made a short time ago.
This is "007 Betty" from Simply Betty Stamps colored with Spectrum Noir markers.
The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs "Fashionable Friends" stamp set.
I used a 1" Glue Dot to make a flower with 3 Girl JAM "Sterling" crinkle ribbon and added a "Vintage Button" also from 3 Girl JAM.

I am entering this card in the Simply Challenged Challenges - Anything Goes

Awww it sounds like you are dealing with an awful lot right now! Sometimes I get sad that I don't have any grandbabies, but sometimes, I think I am lucky to still be fairly young (54) and just have my hubby to worry about. Hope things get better for you! Love your card!
