I am so excited...... My daughter Emily will be arriving tomorrow.. She is moving back home from Hawaii.  Remind me in a month how excited I was, OK? J/K (sorta)  I will admit I am a little apprehensive. She is still my little girl but all grown up and has been living on her own for the past year.  She is one of the coolest people that I know.  I am very proud of who my daughters have become. They are both very unique, artsy, beautiful, non-conformists, non-judgmental, worldly, well educated, gorgeous young women... Man o man, can't tell I'm a proud mama now can ya?

Having said allllll of that, it now brings me to this card ;o)  They may be all of those fabulous things but they can also be a wwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeee bit MOODY!!!!!  I have not a clue as to where they get that. I suppose we can blame Dave (LOL)  
I have so many ideas for this type of card. I think I could make an entire set of PMS cards.  I love how shocking it is to see a "dirty" word inside of an greeting card, don't you?  Just seems so naughty.  

I really like how the stitching around the purple polka dot circle turned out.  Not sure about the name or manufacturer of this paper, it was a gift from my friend Linda.  I have made so many cards and still have tons of it left.  Remember the set I did for Festa della Donna with the little framed houses? That set was also created with this paper line.  I used a punch to create the circles and then adhered rhinestones.  There is also a tiny rhinestone on the point of the exclamation mark but not sure if you can see it.  The sentiment on the inside was created using Word.  

If anyone has any tips or knows of a great book regarding PhotoShop C3, I desperately need to figure out how to use that program. Stinks to have such a great software that I cannot figure out.  I should probably head up to bed and pray that I can sleep. My ear infection isn't getting better on it's own. In other words it hurts like you know what.  Yes I went to the Dr., yes I have drops but holy cow, I have never felt anything creepier..... Dave got one drop in 2 weeks ago and I haven't been able to handle another. Obviously the pain hasn't been bad enough!  Now that I am dizzy, nauseated, have no equilibrium , my face and head hurt, I think it is time to try it again. Wish me luck and thanks for stopping by.

Yikes...hope you feel better! Scott Kelby has some great photoshop books, but they are geared more towards photography: Not sure if that's what you had in mind.

The paper is from Colorbok. It is Punch Out Pack, Jewel. Your cards are wonderful. I hope you feel better soon.
