And here is my try, I just might try this sketch again with different paper and image, I really like this sketch so much you can do with it..


and A little update, I went to the neurologist again today to get the results from the Emg well looks like I have carpal tunnel in my wrist pinched nerve in my neck along with herniated cervical spine, and arthritis, since this is a new doctor have to go threw all the stupid steps first lets try meds. even after I told them they don't work, so next Friday I go back again.. I just hate this process, I'm really liking the time off work, but I want to get this fixed so I can go back 100% and do my job, which I really like

Magnolia Down Under Challenge



Hi Everyone, Its a really nice day today haven't done anything thou, we went to the zoo because they were having a big animal rescue thing there, and we’ve been thinking about another dog for our dog to have a buddy.  we saw a couple we liked but didn't get one yet, we just want to make sure.

So anyway, last night and this morning I put this card together for the magnolia down under challenge this week it’s SPOT THE DOTS  I really like the magnolia challenge, I love these stamps they are so fun to color.



And for the first time ever  , I tried doing the inside of the card and I really like how it makes the card look I probably will start doing this more its a little plain but I liked how it looked.



Thanks for looking at my card hope everyone has a good afternoon and evening, I feel like taking a nap..
