Tuesday

Thank you…and some news!

 

I bought this stamp a few weeks ago, and almost returned it.  After I got it home I decided maybe it just wasn’t my style.  A couple nights ago, I started playing, and decided I love this stamp!  I stamped with versamark, then embossed with detail white powder.  I used a sponge and distress inks to colour inside the image, the excess wiped off easily with a paper towel.  The Thank you is from Hero Arts, the background stamp is from SU.  The tag is a nestibility, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid in the UK.  I was so excited to get this box of flowers!  I have wanted them for so long, and finally decided to just do it!  They were here in 1 week!  How’s that for service… awesome!!!

2010 Cards 021 [50%]

I have had some wonderful news lately and thought it was time I shared!  I had a phone call just a while back, it was my oldest son Mike, telling me that he and his girlfriend are expecting a child!!  You can only imagine how excited I was!  My first grandchild!  2 weeks later I get a phone call from my youngest son Shawn, and he and his girlfriend are expecting a child as well!  OMGOSH!  2 grandchildren in one  year!!!  How happy am I?  lol    I couldn’t be happier with all this wonderful and exciting news!  The babies are due October 20th and December 7th.  Mike and Jen had an ultrasound done to find out the sex of the baby, and it’s a BOY!  Shawn and Brittany want to be surprised, so I will be patient! lol

I am going to finally have the surgery I have been waiting for!  It’s on Friday, and I will be in the hospital for 3 or 4 days, then home to rest, relax and heal for about 8 weeks.  I know this is going to be a huge help for me, and I will finally be able to go back to work.  I have been off since mid December. 

I am also going to school.  I started in February, and am taking Medical Transcription.  It is a year long course, and I am really enjoying it.  I am a bit ahead and will be writing my mid-term at the end of the month.  So far I am doing very well.  I am hoping I can keep it up, as I would love to graduate with high honours!  Wish me luck!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I will try to get some cards made and posted in the next few weeks, but that will really depend on how I am feeling.  I hope you will stop by and check often! 

Have a wonderful day!

:)
