Pink Persimmon's "Fine and Dandy"



Hello stampers!  Tonight I'm sharing a card is designed using one of the Antiquated sets "Fine and Dandy" by Lisa M. Pace for Pink Persimmon.  I just love the Antiquities line!  I hope you are all having a fabulous New Year so far!!

Still lots of challenges for us and certainly not sure what 2013 will bring.  It's a little scarry, because my mother still has no place to live and it's not looking like that problem will be solved anytime soon.  It is very difficult to have her living with us.  I grew up with no father and an alcoholic mother.  It wasn't the best of situations and there is soooo much hurt, anger, resentment in our relationship.  So to now have someone who has damaged you emotionally live with you .....  well it's one of the most difficult situations I have been in for quite some time.  I am trusting that God has a fabulous plan.  Even when my prayers are not answered like I think they should be ... or when they should be .... I know that He loves me and I trust that He will not put more on me than I can handle as long as I lean on Him.  I pray that the way that I handle this very difficult and emotional situation will only bring honor and glory to Him!  Because trust me ... there is no way that I could show love, kindness, forgiveness, or patience to the one person who has hurt me so deeply in my life without God.  Everyday has become a struggle but I know that I will be stronger  when it's all said and done!

As a result ... I am struggling with be creative as well.  I did work on a set of 4 coordinating 8 x 8 canvas's recently and need to get them photographed.  Hope to share more soon!!

hugs,
Melisa

Love your card Melisa. I hear your pain too.
Our year has had a bit of a bumpy start with DH's health, and I have had to go to the dentist - never an experience I like!
Prayers
Maxine

Melisa, I'm so sorry to hear of your challenge and I hope you can find a place for your mother. Big hugs, my friend! I hope you can find a way to escape into your art because you are so creative! You might find some peace in the escape.

Great card
