Well I got downstairs, and managed to make 2 cards...............didn't take too long, I was pretty impressed with myself. I don't know that I particularly care for this one, I think I'm going to add crystal effects to the apple, to make it shiney. I know that less is more sometimes, but the white card base, I just don't know Tell me what you all think, and please be honest. That's what I need!! Thanks, hope your all having a great day!

This is a similar version of a card I stamped for my lil' sis over on SCS. It's completely all paper except for the simple greeting in the lower left hand corner, it's difficult to see in the picture, it says giggle, it's from SU! The paper is from a 6x6 paper pad from paper salon. I really like their papers, I seem to be drawn to them when I step into Archievers. Speaking of Archievers I went yesterday and picked up some new stamps.........I worked with a few of them yesterday but tired, so I don't really think I like the cards but I'll check them out again when I go back downstairs today. Although I definitely see a nap in the day! I'm not sure I'm feeling more tired today then I have been in the last week since my surgery. So we'll see how much I get accomplished today.............along with trying to stay away from the food except for the 3 basic meals + 2 snacks. I've got to get my weight back down, I hate it that since the middle of March I have been so stressed from all the health issues that all I seem to do is eat!! I use to have that stress eating thing down..........but geez not now! LOL

Ok on another non gushy note: I submitted something that I made to papercrafts, I don't know what my deal is, I think it must have been the drugs that I was taking!! LOL :) I seriously doubt it will get published, actually I know it won't but it was at least a step forward, more like a huge leap, so maybe just maybe I might get the bug again and submit something else. Hmmmmm something more to ponder!! Hope you all are having a beautiful Sunday, it's gorgeous here, but alas I'm stuck inside because I overdid it a bit yesterday!! (What on earth was I thinking??? Obviously once again I wasn't!!)

Yipeeeee!!! The biopsy came back and it was all clean. I'm so relieved, excited, elated, any other adjective you can think of! LOL I called the Gyn. and am waiting to hear back from them with a surgery date, so we'll see where that falls...............Still no stamping today, yet............Hubby and I did a few errands and I had to take a nap.............I just don't get how I can get so tired just from a few short errands. Tonight is movie night with the kiddos, we're watching Charlotte's Web, the newer one, I bought kettle Korn popcorn and fudgebars, so all should be good on the home front........LOL

|The Part of You That No One Sees|
You are compassionate, caring, and soothing.
You like other people to depend on you...
In fact, you don't feel right unless you are helping someone out.
Underneath it all, you feel the burden of everyone's problems.
Without your guidance, you fear that many people's worlds would fall apart.
You like to feel in charge, even if it brings you a lot of stress.

I doubt any of you know this, but I am the PTA president of my boys school. I am by far not a solicitor in any way shape or form, but when it comes to something like the auction that we have coming up at our school, I will do my best. I have sent out a few letters to some stamp companies, and I will post my letter further down in my post. My letter explains pretty much everything, but I wanted to just take a minute to personally thank Stampin' UP!, and GinaK stamps because both of those companies have answered my letters and offered to send me a donation for this auction. If anyone knows of any other stamp companies that might be willing to donate to make a wonderful basket for the this great cause I would really appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction. Here is the letter: At the top of the letter is suppose to be our school mascot which is a Hornet, but for some reason he doesn't want to make an appearance here today! LOL Watch later, I'm going to try and post a new card! Keep your fingers crossed I find some stamping inspiration!
Beech Grove City Schools
To Whom It May Concern: I am writing to you in regards to a PTA auction that our school is having. I am currently the PTA president, and in charge of coordinating items for our auction. We are currently raising money for a young man that is suffering leukemia, his family unfortunately doesn’t have health insurance, and the medical bills are mounting. I am writing to you in hopes that you would be willing to donate to this wonderful cause that we have set out to do and help me share my love of rubberstamping and crafting. I have many friends that enjoy crafting just as much as I do and I know they would be thrilled to see a basket of items geared just towards them, and their passion. I love each and every one of your products and I know that your items would bring in a nice variety to our auction table. If this is not an option I totally understand, but I wanted to contact each of you in hopes that I might be able to count on you for your support. Any small donation would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much

Well I'm running out of cards that I have made, so I suppose that means that I better get downstairs real soon. Hopefully I feel up to it tomorrow. I seem to get tired towards the later part of the afternoon, and in the mornings I still feel sort of tired...............still not sleeping real comfortable. I'm still waiting to hear from the Dr. with the results, keeping my fingers crossed.
This card is the Real red and Cool Carriabean color combo, and I love it. I really like this stamp set too, though I can't tell you the name of it. The background is using the new glue pad, with dazzling diamonds, I like that pad, but it seems to me that you almost have to put some sort of sealer over the top so that the glitter real stays put, anyone else find this? I also did some paper piecing on this card, the center of the red flower is paper pieced, and the bigger flower is also paper pieced. I hope your all having a great day.

Yippeeee I'm up alive and moving around. I don't feel the bestest (lol) but I don't feel horrible. I haven't taken any pain meds since bedtime last night. I took a shower today, and I can honestly say it's a good thing John was home, because I had to have him help me wrap the ace bandages back up! Needless to say it was a really long day yesterday, I started to get really nervous around 2 or so yesterday so they gave me something in my IV and I took a little nap...............but then I got the great news that they were running about an hour behind schedule, so I got to sit around the surgery room for 4 1/2 hours...............The incision is about 3" long vertically, it will be a pretty little scar! Now I'm just waiting for the biopsy results and I'll be on the phone to the gyn. to schedule that hysterectomy. Hey might as well get it done while I'm on a roll..........LOL Thanks for everyones thoughts and prayers I really appreciate them, and I'm hoping that maybe tomorrow I might get to stamp a bit, but my right arm is pretty sore, so we'll see!

I just got done addressing a couple of RAK's to send out, and got to thinking, if any of my readers out there would like a card that I have made or one that I will make, because I have really been on a card making kick, just leave me your address or e-mail it to me, and I would be more then happy to send out some cards. I can't promise you that it will be tomorrow, but I promise I will send one your way!!! Thanks for checking out my blog and if you really like it, it would be greatly appreciated if you could pass my link along to some of your other crafting friends. Thanks so much!

Well lets see, yesterday was a crappy day. No MRI, the machine broke. They aren't sure when I'll be able to get the test done. I felt like I was going to have a nervous break down yesterday. I had such a migraine, and I went to be with it, so now I feel even worse this morning. I don't know how some people are able to deal with the stress, I'm loosing my mind. I did go downstairs and make 2 cards, I want to go down over the weekend and duplicate a few. I really like how they turned out this time. They were both very simple and quick. I think I'm really starting to like those types of cards. I didn't get a chance to take a pic of them but I will post a picture of a card I did the other day. It's a shaker card that I used the scallop punch with, it took a bit of fussing but i do like how it turned out. Hope you enjoy it. Have a great Friday!

Ok now this card was totally meant for Easter but once again I made cards and they never made it out. I get so frustrated with myself. Why on earth am I like that, and it's not like I didn't like the card. I totally loved how this turned out. I guess bottom line is I'm just pure lazy. Or maybe just maybe, have too much going on and not enough time in the day to get everything done. Oh how I like that explanation so much better. LOL Well hubby has a dr. appt this morning and I'm hoping to get some stamping done but with having to pick up a baby shower cake, and go to said baby shower by around 2:30 I'm not sure that will happen. Tonight is out since I have to have that stupid MRI done at 7 pm, whoever heard of having a test like that done so late at night? I suppose I'm rambling since it's almost 4 in the morning and I'm up because I can't fall back to sleep..........Grrrr how I hate nights like this. Hope you all have a great day.
