RIP Wink


This is the card I made for one of our band members when her husband died.  She and her son both thanked me for making it for her.  It was actually the son that figured out I made it.  He happened to turn it over and I stamp the back of all my cards with my name.

Thank You Medical Staff

Today is the last day that DH has in house therapy.  We go to the doctor tomorrow and hopefully he will be released to drive.  The next step is out-patient therapy.  He is really progressing well even impressing the therapist.  She told him today that he has challenged her to find new exercises for him to do.  Thank you to all of the nurses, doctors, and therapists who have helped him with this knee surgery.

Happy Birthday Tom

About three weeks ago I told you someone close to me was having surgery.  It was my husband having knee replacement.  He is getting along great and I owe a big thanks to two of my brothers for coming to stay with us.  They each took a week so the first two weeks I had help.  Today is my brother Tom's birthday.  He had week #1 so he got to sit with me at the hospital and help get DH in the house and up the stairs the first night home.  He was so much help.  I hope he has a great birthday.

Using Old Designer Paper

This designer paper is several years old.  I bought it before I became a demo so that is at least 4 years ago.  I am down to just a sheet or two and scraps so I am trying to use it up.  I thought the lotus blossom stamp in shades of purple would look good on this paper.

Sending Good Wishes

I don't think I published this one yet.  Once again it features the butterfly die.  I also used the co-ordinating stamp set.  This is the last one I will post for awhile.  I need to mix up the themes for a change.

Blue Butterfly and Blooms

Like I said in an earlier post, I love this new butterfly.  It does take a while to poke all those chads out but it is so worth the effort.  Today would have been Jim's dad's birthday.

Another Sympathy Card

I made this card for my community band to send to the one of our tuba players.  His father died recently.  His dad attended almost all of our practices and concerts not because of his son, but because his wife was in our band too.  I also made a card for her which I will post another day.  We will all miss seeing him at our concerts and practices.
