You are the best!

Ok, so I lied. Not on purple. LOL, I meant to say not on purpose. I could have just backspaced and fixed it, but I thought I would leave it so that you could see that I have purple on my mind. (surprise surprise! ) I lied because I never did play with that light studio and take pictures of the many cards I have waiting to photograph. I took a quick picture of this card this morning before I left on my excursion to the Doctor's office and beyond.
This image is Impression -Obsession. I don't own this stamp. It's one that Julie sent it me when we swapped images. The saying is Hero Arts. The stamped used to create the background is a Magenta stamp stamped in Memories white dye ink. I used Art Institute glitter on this card but I'm not counting it in my ABC challenge. When I challenged myself to use the glitter, I intended to use it as the focus of the card. So that's still in the works.
It's Wednesday! I had a successful 6 week check up. I don't have to see my doctor for a year! I'm happy and sad about that. I really like this lady. She really has been God's gift to me over the last couple of months. If I hadn't worked at Michaels, I wouldn't have met Nicole who recommended this wonderful doctor. I have to go about 45 minutes to get to her so it's not likely that I would have met her if the right set of circumstances had not been in place. I'm still sad about not being able to teach at Michaels any more, but it served it's purpose. Doesn't the Bible say that God will work all things for our good? There is nothing more satisfying than feeling like you are right where you're supposed to be! Back to talking about this doctor. I don't know if you remember me talking about meeting this doctor last fall. As soon as I walked into the office, I knew I was in a happy place because I was surrounded by purple. EVERY room had some purple in it -- from the waiting room to the rest room. So this card was for her. One day soon, I'm going to get together with her to scrapbook. She has the stuff, but wants guidance. I'm excited about that. I like helping people to get their 'scrapbook on'.

We had another severe storm and tornado warning yesterday evening. After the storm had cleared, the sky looked like this...
and a few minutes later as the sunset colored the sky it all turned pink...


It was amazing. I don't remember ever seeing clouds like this in my 45 years on this planet. I was in awe. Of course, the pictures don't begin to touch on what it really looked like standing there under that big fluffy blanket.
I went to too many places today, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Staples, Big Lots and Tuesday Morning. All places you go to if you want to get into trouble! actually, I didn't do too bad. I had a list for HL. I got some school supplies on clearance at Staples. I didn't get anything at Tuesday Morning, but that doesn't mean I didn't like what I saw. Let's not talk about Big Lots, ok?
I need to go. The only plan I have for the rest of the night is dinner and a movie. I'm hoping to get the rest of the cards photographed tomorrow. ...hopefully...
Be blessed! Choosing Joy! jacki

Hmmm. It's so hard just say no to those important errands, especially when they're shopping excursions for craft supplies and e.x.t.r.a. especially when they're on sale! I hope your day ends just as you hope it will--restfully. So glad you're doing so well, great clouds, and super great card. I love that IO image from Julie!
