the twilight zone

I think I live in the twilight zone.  I don't ever remember living in a place where there are SO many grumpy, bitter, crabby people.  Seriously, I'd bet that 80% of the community is grumpy and mad about something all the time.  It's crazy!  Some days I think to myself, "self, this day is going to be different, people will realize how blessed we all really are, maybe everyone will be smiling today..."  hmmmm, that thought usually doesn't last long.  I really don't get it?!  Why do people want to go through life this way?!  And we all know the old saying 'Misery loves company', well I totally get that.  It's so hard to stay clear of the grumpies when they seem to be everywhere and then it's VERY hard not to get sucked into the grumpy trap!  Thank God, He has my back and I don't have to get sucked in!  Happy Friday!


Play Date Cafe Challenge #92

Here's the next one for the PDC Challenge...  Gotta get it posted and off to work.  TFL!!

(added:  OK, so now that I'm at home and not rushing off to work, I figured I'd add a few details about my card here.  This card is nothing like what I had originally planned.  I sat down with my supplies and scraps and started creating a different design which wasn't flowing, so this is what came out instead.  I haven't used the decorative leaves in a long time and forgot I had them till I started looking and organizing my scrap area.  The dark ring is actually a stamp but it didn't turn out right...looks more like a coffee ring, but hey maybe it goes since it's kinda vintage-y!  The brownish/goldish "paper" is actually from a vintage newspaper style shopping bag that I got here at a local store when I purchased an ornament last Christmas.  I liked how it looked like old newspaper advertisments and kept it for just the right project.  The twirled bloom in the center of the flower is antique gold tulle, which I was originally planning to overlap along the bottom like to mimic the dress in the PDC photo...didn't happen that way.  oh well.  I'm still pleased with how it turned out.  It's a bummer that I finished late into the evening and didn't have good lighting to take the pictures...I'll work on the next one earlier, so I'll still have time to photograph and post.)

Thanks for the really sweet comments!!
