Can you believe that I've had this little Beachy Beatrice colored up and ready to go for nearly a month now? She was actually colored during one of my hospital visits in Wenatchee before Mom got moved to Seattle. Then Beatrice just sat and waited forever before finally making it onto a card. At least she had some soft, white sand to relax on while she was kept waiting. ;)
So when I finally sat down to play I didn't actually choose summer themed papers to go with her. Instead I pulled from the Neapolitan pad and I think that the cool neutrals create a beachy look quite nicely. Then I embellished the card with a few shell shaped brads and decided that Beatrice needed a little sandpiper friend to keep her company and that wood veneer birdie was perfect after I added a bit of color with my Copics.
On a more personal note... Mom had surgery on Tuesday and had to be intubated again. Hopefully the doctors will be taking the tubes out today though. In the meantime she remains communicative and in relatively good spirits. It's going to be a long road to recovery but hopefully now we are finally and truly on our way to recovery.
So thanks for hanging in there with me through all of this. I'm still going to be away more often than not but when things settle back down I'll be back and better than ever. :)
