It's Been Awhile

Where has the time vanished too???  I am finally feeling back to normal, again, whatever that is.  I can eat again...YAY!!  Unfortunately I did manage to hurt my back lifting a patient so I'm still taking it relatively easy.  Time and energy for card making???  I think I've lost it for a bit yet.  Who knows, perhaps tomorrow I may become creative again.  Who knows?  At least everyone else keeps their blogs filled with inspiration for me!  Thanks all!!!  hugs!!

On The Road To Recovery...I hope!!

I've taken a computer break since Monday...amazing what the stomach flu keeps you from doing.  My bathroom knows me well...ugh.   Anyway, I will try and get this posted before I return to bed. 

Here are some of Sue Chaney's amazing cards she's
sent me and I think I've forgotten to post them...
MY BAD!!  Love her cards!!

Don't ya just love 'em???

This card is one I received from my 2012 Paper Craft Planet Anything Goes Secret Pal.
She is Cute Cookie.  I'll find out who she really is in just about a year. lol
I believe she is from...Spain???  Just going by the postage stamps.

Here are some very pretty Christmas cards I received.

This one is from Penny Yoder, former ANGEL, ok, still an
angel!!  Just not TAC anymore.   If you don't know Penny,
you're missing out on someone that is lovely inside and out!

This one is from my upline MOM, Sara Woodard.  Talk about
someone that can inspire and motivate you.  She is my
stamping guru!!  Thanks for all you do, Sara!!  HUGS!!

Color sucks in this photo...sorry...

Ok...that's it for now...off to lay down and get better...here's prayin'!!
