It has been a couple of crazy days. Sending one kid off to school, while taking the other one with me to my school. So much to get done before the students arrive next week. Our school has been under major construction this summer. We had air put in, asbestos removed, and now cleaning everything up in time is the challenge. I feel like I'm in an episode of Restaurant Impossible! ;) I made a lot of progress in my room yesterday and am headed back there today. Wish me luck that I get most of it wrapped up today. :)
Today's card is another beautiful image from Crafty Secrets. It was colored using my Inktense pencils. ( I told you I would bombard you with projects using these pencils!) ;)
I added shades of red, pink, brown, and a bit of yellow to the rose. I did a watercolor wash around the rose to add a hint of blue.
I wanted a sentiment that didn't distract from the main image, and found this bead. It must be a bajillion years old, but since I am a craft hoarder ( I throw nothing away......ever), I dusted it off, and used it here. I think it worked pretty well, if I do say so myself!
Tomorrow Brian, Cortney, and I head to court. We had filed for guardianship of her since she became 18, and tomorrow we stand in front of a judge. There is a part of me that still hurts that we were dealt the hand we were dealt.
She is 18.
She should be a legal adult capable of making her own decisions.
She should be heading to college.
There is still that loss.
Still those moments when you dwell on the things that "should have been."
I won't dwell long.
Especially when she hugs me good morning, or tells me she loves me.
She is and always will be my girl.
Have a great day my friends!
