Hello Bloggers,
Thanks for stopping by. These last couple of weeks has been exhausting. I've been feeling so tried, I knew something more had to be wrong. A few doctor appointments and test. I finally find out the results. I'm anemic and I have uterine fibroids. So in next few weeks I'll be having surgery. I'm a little worried about everything. Job,surgery,pain,dogs,...etc. I could use a lot of prayers. My bf maybe getting laid off and my daughter still hasn't found a job and it's been three months now.....So for now I'm leaving my troubles in Gods hands and pray everything will turn out alright. This weekend I managed to try a new Challenge at Triple the Sketch

I used stamp by: Rubbernecker, grass paper by amscan purchased at Hobby Lobby, Blue paper by Paper Studio. I also used a leather strip I had in my sewing scraps along with a brad. Hope you like him.
