Sad days still admist my life

Well, I haven't stamped in a while, was busy with craft fairs, getting organized etc. Then on Thanksgiving evening, my b/f and I broke up. I know, it is unusual for the person who did the breaking to feel sad, but I do. I really loved him, I still do. There are just somethings that were broken in the relationship that no matter how hard we tried, we just couldn't fix it. It is terrible. I miss him! I cried myself to sleep the first night, and have just been a sad person these past few days. I am very thankful for my gal pals, they have been doing their best to get me up and out and living life again. They really helped me. I even went shopping! great therapy btw!

I wanted to get myself out of the dolldroms, so I decided to check out featured stamper of the day at splitcoast, it is Mrs. Boz, I saw this card of hers, so pretty, the colors just captured me. Who doesn't like chocolate with blue! OMG what a color combo!!! LOVE IT!!!

I would love to link her card but this doesn't want to let me. So here is my card made with choc chip paper as my base, followed by bashful blue, I stamped Print Patterns in bashful blue, then went with Sanded in creamy caramel. I added a caramel piece and choc ribbon. My main image is choc chip, and creamy caramel with a bashful blue ribbon.

Out of work, so time to craft!

Well, I've been out of work for a few weeks now, so I have been catching up on my craft time. I really missed it when I was working, it really is quite therapuetic and relaxing.

Not much has been happening lately, still seeing my guy, 6 months as of yesterday, and trying to find a job. Things are a little more stable now, the workers comp checks finally got caught up, so am getting my bills back in order, which is a very good thing!

My right arm has been bothering me a lot lately. The lateral side (outside) of my right arm has been hurting ever since I had the prp injections done. (PRP Injection=draw blood, spin it into plasma, and inject it into the body part that has issues) I'm not sure if the doctor hit on something that was dormant or what, but it has been bothering me ever since the injections back in late September. I guess all I can do is suck it up and try to stay off the computer and let it heal.

I did a craft fair this past Saturday, I not only made the cost of the table, but I made almost $100 profit from my cards. I really love making them, but selling them and seeing other people happy because of my creations is just awesome.

Here are my latest works.

Now that I'm out of work, I had the opportunity to start making cards again. I went to the Stampin B's page and took their #31 Challenge. Here is my card for that challenge.

I used night of navy as my base, then bravo burgandy as my mat, then I used Stampin Up dsp, and nesties for my shape. I used bravo burgandy ribbon, I stamped in burgandy, and colored using the pastels from SU marker set. I used my glue stick then went over it with dazzling diamonds for sparkle. The stars I went over with a glitter gel pen to give them sparkle.

tfl and have a great day!
