Art Journal Challenge #10

Just can't believe it's week 10 of the challenge already! This week Emily has a great prompt! Love it, though I found it kind of hard, Note to self! Sometimes you have to remind yourself to take it easy, or whatever, and that's my note for this week! And this is not my own handwriting, wish it was:-) I just used one of the many fonts on the computer!!

As most of you know I'm Dutch and moved to Canada June last year. DH and DD's are Canadian Citizens, but me, no I'm just a visitor still, and need my Permanent Residency to be albe to stay here and work and just live my life as I want it to! Unfortunately it takes such a long time before everything is done and legal,..... sometimes that wears me out, like now! So Emily, thanks for this prompt, have to keep that card close to me till I got my status.... maybe that will help:-)

Cool card. Great journalling. We so need to take time out when you think about how much we try and cram into our lives.

Alette said...

Ik heb inmiddels al verschillende kaarten gezien hier en daar,. Ik denk erover om zelf ook mee te doen. Het is nu nog in te halen :)
Jeetje wat ben ik lang niet meer geweest. Moet toch vaker langs komen Marjo, sorry :)
Kan me voorstellen dat je je zelf wel op kan vreten met zorgen over alle papieren toestanden. Maar je kunt eigenlijk alleen maar wachten. Hoe moeilijk het ook is. Staat er ook een bepaalde tijd voor hoelang het ongeveer gaat duren?

Wat prachtig verwoord..... Hopenlijk gaat de tijd snel en je hebt leuke dingen in het vooruitzicht.
Prachtige kaart, mooie tekst, ik hoop dat je er veel an hebt als je het nog eens naleest en echt... het komt allemaal, op zijn eigen tijd, gewoon goed.
