SugarPea Designs "Make It Masculine" Challenge

     Bet you all thought I had fell off the face of the earth.  It's felt like it at times.  LOL  I've been getting some answers and solutions to all my health woes.  Hormonal changes have made me a basket case with anxiety so I'm on some low dose meds for that.  They didn't like me much at first and I really didn't like them, but thankfully things have seemed to even out and hopefully will continue to.  My scope revealed an ulcer which was no surprise with all the anxiety, so we're treating that too.  My daughter had surgery yesterday on top of all my problems so as you can see it's been a bit busy around my house.  Hasn't left me much time or in much inclination to be crafty or get on the computer, but I feel like the path has taken a turn for the better and I hope to be feeling lots more like my old self soon.  Forgive my slow visits.  I'm working on it little by little.
     Now, it's time for a new challenge at SugarPea Designs!  This time we want to see your "Masculine" creations.

For my card I've used the cute little nerdy guy from the My Hero stamp set.  He's just SUPER!

  4. I'm so sorry for everything you've been dealing with, my friend...but I'm so glad that you are starting to find some answers and hopefully, great solutions, to your ails. I understand what you are going through, as I'm there myself. Just know that anxiety is definitely a bad side effect to all the hormonal life changes us women go through. Thank goodness there's help for that! :)
