Hi guys. Did you make it through your Monday? We did, but boy oh boy is it hot. I want to start off by saying Thank you for all of your encouraging words about Maddie. I try not to talk too much about it, because everyone has something going on in their lives and I would never want to take away from anyone that might have bigger problems than ours. I just have so many possibilities going on in my head as to what might be going on with her and I have to confess they are not good things. I realize that this all could be something simple or nothing more than growing pain. So I am trying desperately to be positive and calm and wait to see what it is before I go off the deep end. lol... So, again thank you all for your sweet words and prayers.
Moving on to my card for today. I actually had my nephew Marshall in mind when I was playing around with this one. He just turned 19 and is very much into Manga and going to Manga conventions... Well, I colored this sweetie up and had a ton of fun playing with her hair...(See Miss Angela's blog for the hair tutorial..) I love, love how her hair came out. I even sent a picture of her to Marshall to see what he thought. He said it was nice. He really liked her hair too. I am trying to catch Marshall when he has some free time. He had a blast trying out my Copics when he came over for my Birthday. I am trying to get him hooked. From what little time he played with them, he seemed to be a natural. We'll see. :D
I have to admit that I really am enjoying the hair and eye coloring. That has always been one of my favorite things to draw and now I can play with colors also. Marshall just moved into his first apartment (much to his Mommy's dismay. He is her listener.) So, I think that I need to send this to him. I am pretty sure that he will enjoy getting it in the mail. Now all I have to do is get Marshall's address.
Ok, guys it is getting to be that time...So I will talk at you tomorrow. Until then, have an AWESOME day. Hugs, Lisa G

This is breath taking Lisa, love her eyea and of course the pink hair! Totally gorgeous card!
Don't worry about what you write on your blog, we come to see and hear what's going on with you and your family! I know I'd feel just like you with Madison, but keep thinking positive and try and keep your worrying to a minimum! Big Hugs!
