This card came from Kay (SCS: Sarge) and an envelope FULL of goodies as a thank you for hosting a swap she was in! It was the sweetest, most thoughtful thing!! Thanks Kay!
This card is from Sue, also from the Tilda & friends yahoo group, that was sent with a bunch of Magnolia images! I just love this cow and the saying is adorable! Anyone know what company makes them? Thanks Sue!!!!

Spring is just around the corner! Hang in there!!!

I finally finished this card this morning. It took me a couple days because of hospital visits and work, but it is done!! It is Cami's trifold card (tutorial from SCS) and it was really fun!! When it is closed it almost looks like a shadow box. I used Certainly Celery as the base and DP from SU (can't remember the name of it). I used my nestabilities to create the window and the frame (that was stressful - I thought I was going to break my poor Cuttlebug!!! I used the stamp set Garden Whimsy (SU) and the sentiment is from a stamp cube I got last year from Inky Antics. I did the Rock and Roll technique on the butterfly in Purely Pomegranate and Groovy Guava ink (SU) Finally, I used my SU slit punch and crop-o-dile for the tab to keep the card closed. The ribbon is Certainly Celery (SU).

Update, but no time for card making this week!!!

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers for my Mom! Surgery went well, and she is now in the process of physio...she has to be able to do certain things before they let her out of the hospital. She said it is really painful, but I try to encourage her that it will get easier! She is in good spirits for the most part, so that is good! She is very tired too. I've been up to see her every day this week and I am exhausted!

I did finish up a swap card set last night but haven't taken a picture of it - I will cuz it's pretty cute. It is Cami's Trifold card tutorial from SCS. I'll post the link to the tutorial when I post the card - I am running really late for work & need to get my butt off the chair! UGH!!! Is it Friday yet???

Prayer request

Hey ladies!! I would love it if you could say an extra little prayer tonight for my Mom who is going in for a hip replacement tomorrow morning. She is 75, and with any surgery there are risks, and I'm scared. I am trying to be positive but any extra prayers would help!!! I am meeting her and my Dad at the hospital at 6 am, and her surgery is at 7:40 am. She should be all done and in her room by noon I hope!! I am bringing the crib board so my Dad & I can play while we wait!! Thanks everyone!!! I will post as soon as I get a chance!!
