I really need to participate in more challenges! I think this is the fastest card I've ever made! It only took me 45 minutes! Which for me is fast! I am one of those 4 hour card people! LOL! This was for the technique challenge a few weeks ago on SCS. I would never have thought to ink up the inside of my Cuttlebug folder. I used Tri-colored Brilliance ink. I used that as my background paper. Then I used 2 colors of chalk inks and daubers to ink up the butterfly. (Thanks again Kivonne!) The other paper is by Memory Box. I did some machine stitching, added some Prima flowers, and a pretty silk ribbon.
On a personal note.....got a call from Misericordia yesterday. They want to set up an interview with Brian, myself, and Cortney. They feel she would be a good match for Misericordia. If the interview goes well, then the next step is Cort would stay there for a few days to see if it is a good fit. What does that mean? It means if she IS a good fit, they will officially put her on the wait list. This means she could get in in 5 months or 6 years, or 10 years. It is hard to say when an opening will become available. My emotions are so mixed up right now! I really want this for her, but I think the reality of it just kind of hit me right between the eyes! She is such a Mama's girl. I was thinking about the craziest things....like who is going to brush her teeth like me? Who is going to read her favorite books to her at night? Who will fix her hair everyday? Just writing this breaks my heart. I know no one can take care of her like me......but I know the reality is, I will have to let go at some point. For now, I pray they feel she is good fit, and an opening opens up in about 10 more years! (She is almost 13 now.)
