Wonderful Life

Hi there fellow stampers!  Today I am using a new release from Technique Junkies new release.  My background was handmade using Distress Inks.  I thought it would be a fun idea to use Floral Frame Square, with gold embossing powder.  Look how rich a feel it has to it.  Around the image, I added gold stars.  They look silver on the top right, but you can’t tell because of the camera flash.  Some day I’d like to get a nice camera box.

Feel free to use my code TJ10Beth for 10% off of this stamp and your shopping cart.

Did you have a nice Mother’s Day weekend?  Al treated me to a special take out dinner.  Here in Ontario, our restaurants are closed and it is only pick up or curbside delivery due to COVID.

Of course I had a face plant on my walk this past weekend.  Last year it was my ankle and ended up being in a boot cast for the summer, and this year it was a face plant.  In analyzing what had happened to me and in listening to my girlfriend say her mom had issues with her knee just giving out, I believe that’s what happened to me.  My knee has just given out several times before; I just never put much thought into it.  I was with my cousin and she said one minute I was up and the next I fell flat onto my face (it was even pavement).  Not having time to put out my hands, I’m not as beat up on the outside as I am on the inside.  My muscles are in excruciating pain.  My tooth that sticks out a little hit the pavement, and by the grace of God, it didn’t become loose.  There is no explanation for my tooth not being knocked out.   Because the weather is nice all week, I will be walking before my afternoon shift, but at a leisure walk and not in a fast pace any more.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to take a peak at one of my videos.

Gorgeous framing that makes, it does look so elegant with the gold embossing and so pretty against your background you made, great sentiment for the center!!

So very sorry to hear you had another fall, I am so scared of falling since having the surgery and hearing you had another fall, will have me being extra careful. So thankful you didn’t lose any teeth, I hope you heal fast and well.

Oh, Beth, this is so gorgeous! When I saw it on FB, my jaw went ‘thud’! Love love love the gold embossing! I always tend to overthink, and feel I have to hand color every detail. I need to work on that bad habit, and start using some embossing powders! Girl, I am SO sorry to hear about your fall. The older I get, the more frightened I am of falls. The ground seems so much closer to my face when I fall, but so much further away when I try to push this old body back upright! lol… Anyway, you be careful, and don’t be a speed demon! Nice, easy pace, dear friend! Thanks for sharing this beautiful creation!

Oh dear, you give me such a fright, Bethie! So glad it wasn’t worse and I’ll be praying your aches and pain goes away super quick! Have you looked into knee braces? Your card is gorgeous, the gold embossing is the perfect touch. Take care! XXO
