It's been a bad past couple of days

A few days ago, my husband was backing out of a parking stall and the parking attendant had parked another vehicle too close to him. He scratched and dented his truck and the other vehicle when he turned too soon. Her estimate is $1600 to fix it. Of course, the auto body shop told him if he paid them cash they'd do it for $1,000. Robbery!

I went to my fitness class yesterday, got overheated, almost fainted, vomited the protein bar the instructor gave me to eat but finally managed to bring my blood sugar up when another class participant found some Tic Tacs and gum in her purse. That same person drove me home and then I got a phone call that my SIL, Lisa, has breast cancer.

This morning my DH was leaving for work and discovered his wallet had been stolen during the night. He has a trip to Canada scheduled soon and I don't think he will get new picture ID in time. He is busy freaking out. The wallet had been left in the center console of his truck (which I am ALWAYS telling him not to do) and the vehicle was unlocked. He sent one of my kids out to the truck to get his glasses and unlocked the truck from inside the house. When my son came in, DH forgot to relock the truck.

What else is going to go wrong???

Well, enough about my rotten last few days. You want a sneak peek. A Muse is not only releasing new wood mounted stamps but there are some acrylic sets releasing, too. One of them is a set of leaves. I really like this set and am finding it to be versatile to different coloring mediums. This particular sample was colored with Copics. In my next post I will show you another image from the set colored with Prismacolor pencils.

On a happy note, that card is adorable! Can't wait to see the whole set!

Sorry to hear about your round of bad luck, sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better. I hope that your 'better' is just around the corner!
