This card is for my new neighbor, Colleen. The house is a Hambo digital image. The ability to flip them is one of the advantages of digital images.
I'm not really happy with the coloring on this one, and I'm not sure why. I'm not even sure why I'm showing it to you, because I don't think it's finished. I must be thinking aloud again.
Anyway, I printed the images on Kraft card stock and then colored every single centimeter so I'm wondering why I even bothered to print it on Kraft. I'm going to look at it for a couple more days and maybe even start over. I'll let you know if I do anything different.
In the meantime I've gotten a couple new images to color. Still working on them. : ) Let's see if you recognize this kid. First click >here<.. and then scroll all the way down to the bottom. Wee Henry not only has a "sister" Wee Henrietta, but he has a friend, Wee Mitch! I can't wait to color him. I've been working on the Wee Henrietta bookworm today... but I think my coloring mojo is asleep. If you happen to read this in the next half hour, today's Hambo digi special on is Wee Henrietta... She's only 1.50. Check their site each Thursday for a wonderful deal.
So let me update you on the stuff going on in my life.
Grandma is at home with a back brace. She's doing well. My mother was with her for several weeks, and now my sister is hanging out there for a few days.
I have tennis elbow thanks to my vigorous exercising with weights. I should've known I'd be the one to hurt myself. LOL My elbow isn't actually hurting right this minute because of the wonderful steroids I'm on because I have is a nodule on the vocal chord or vocal fold. Remember how I said I couldn't speak last time? I finally went to the Dr and now I'm not supposed to talk for 3 weeks! Based on when/how it happened, I think it was caused by all the violent coughing I did when I was sick. I'm already susceptible to injuring the because of the Laryngopharyngeal Reflux. You might remember, if you knew me back in 2004, that I've been on this road before and I'm praying that the drugs and vocal rest and maybe speech therapy will help like it did before. Then again, I learned so much last time I went to speech therapy, I may just do all my exercises once he clears me to start. The good news is, I'll probably actually accumulate some roll-over minutes on my cell phone instead of using them for the next couple of months. Ha Ha!
So to bed I go! I hope your days are blessed with joy! As you know choosing joy is my motto. I stand by it even with all that is going on in my life. I may not be able to control my circumstances, but I can choose how I deal with it.
Where does this attitude come from?
7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the LORD always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
from Psalm 16.
Talk to you soon (hopefully)!! Choosing Joy! Jacki : )
