Let's start with an Open Mind, K?

OK, these pictures are HORRIBLE - yes I realize that but I really like the card and wanted to share it with you!

This is another one of those taken about midnight the night before I left to be with my mom for surgery - the pictures were taken with my phone which normally takes great pictures...but at midnight, does ANYTHING take good pictures? LOL Um, my crafting room is in the basement too - pretty dark down there.

K, that's all my excuses - but they're legit! Anyway, here we go; this is Penny Black's City Divine and the card was made for an 11 year old princess - yep; that's EXACTLY what her mom said. Oh yeah, and she's a 70's kid living in the year 2010! HA!

She loves lime green, purple - totally retro. I added an incredible crown to the little girl AND some green gems. She is so stylin'; don'tcha love those pants? Those were paper pieced, the rest was colored with Copics. Lots of green, black, pink, purple and other fun colors.

Thanks for stopping by; again I apologize for the horrid pictures!!

Update on mom: she got her staples out this week (YIPPEE); she had approximately 5-6 on the inside of the leg, looks like 4 on the top of her foot and then about 15 on the outside of her leg. Her leg is still incredibly bruised - of course, with breaks like that - what do you expect? The bruising goes halfway up her calf and all the way down to the bottom of her foot. Still lots of swelling, still non-weight bearing for another 4 weeks, but she's making amazing progress. For those that follow me on Twitter or Facebook - I hope you enjoyed the 'crawling on the bathroom floor' story - mom's convinced not many daughters would do that. Grossed me out - but hey, we had to have a handicapped stall. :D

Have a great weekend - we have 1 football game and a double-header baseball game - gonna be very busy! Take care; hugs, ~M.
