Digital Delights Aug.25

Here's an update with my cockroach situation.  I am still seeing them after the fumigation but even seeing one is enough.  However, where I store my dog's food there was one in his bag.  I freaked!  I threw that bag away luckily it was 1/4 left to the bag.  I opened a new one but it's 40lbs. :P  I put some in a big tupperware and closed the bag and put it in two garbage bags.  The exterminator came back today and I liked this one much better!!!  He said it is normal and I will still see a few.  But he fumigated the storage area as well as going over what the previous exterminator did and filled more gel into areas.  Then he put more traps.  I asked him for honesty.  Will I be rid of them and he said my place is very clean and what i am seeing is not a bad case.  I can still expect to see them for another week or so but you know what....I am so tired.  I don't sleep well and i look everywhere to make sure they are not there.  I haven't been a month in my apt and already I want to leave.  The problem is it's not the time for lots of apts because leases finish in June.  Someone told me G-d doesn't give us more than we can handle.....I say if he's listening I would like to have a break!!!

Onto this week's card for Digital Delights!  This week I used the image "Penny and Bear" with the Ticket Sentiments.  I colored her with promarkers.  Sometimes the lighting goes a little off with my camera when I have red.  The blending is much better IRL.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found) 6x6 - Rosy.  All the Lost & Found series are stunning.  The flowers are from I Am Roses and the gems were colored with promarkers.  The inking is with distress inks.

Be sure to head on over to the Digital Delight blog to see what the rest of the team did as well as seeing the new challenge.  TFL and have a great weekend.  Most of you are probably preparing your kids for Back To School so enjoy the last few days before madness starts!!!

Oh no, I would be mortified - I don't do any kind of insects, especially cockroaches, to I think you are being very brave, but I wouldn't be able to stay there. This is a gorgeous card hun, great image. Take care, Claire x
