Blessings Dragon.

Good morning everyone! I was so stressed out yesterday with two meetings. I was so afraid that the big boss would try to change my hours, try to make me do way more than I could handle, but it all worked out okay. I was really honest with all of the management that they would have to patient and it all worked out okay. So, it was a pretty good day! I did get a bunch accomplished, but not as much as I would have liked. I'm hoping to make up for that today :)  I hope you all had a great start to your week!

The kids started school yesterday. It was Bailey's first day as a High School Freshman. She seemed to have a great day. One of her teachers seems really boring LOL but the rest seem to be alright. I think she is going to have a great year. And when they start conditioning for Lacrosse she will get to know her teammates and I think it will be really great for her. Michael seemed to like all of his teachers okay too. So, I'm hoping he will have a good year too. We just have to get through math, but that won't be until the second semester. I was going to see if I could get that changed, but then I decided to just let it be. 

Okay.. on to today's card:







For this card I used Wee Stamps adorable . I added a bit of Stickles to the blue on his wings. I added some paint for the centers of the flowers. I added some dew drops and White Glitter Tape Ribbon. I stitched a big circle behind everything so that you could see parts of it around the image. The papers are all scraps. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. The image was colored with Copic Markers, but it is one of those images that has been just sitting there waiting for ages to be used. I can't remember which markers I've used on this one.
