BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL

HEY BLOGGIES,

So sorry I have been missing for a bit - I was in the hospital for three days with a concussion and a collapsed lung.  Everyone asks me, "What happened?"  And I feel so stupid having to say, I don't know!!

You see, I can't remember because of the concussion.  But the best I can figure out is this.  I was in the front yard picking up branches and sticks, etc. from our property.  It is completely fenced so I let my horses be in the yard with me.  They follow me around like puppies and enjoy the break from their pasture.

When they get tired of following me around, they either start grazing or they start playing with each other.  They like to tussle (my made up word for it) with each other and then they play tag and chase each other.  When they get tired, they go back to grazing.  This is what we all were doing when the next thing I knew I was waking up in bed because I was hearing the horses clip clopping on the driveway outside my bedroom window.

I have no idea why I was lying on top of the bed and no idea what happened to me, but my glasses are missing and we still can't find them.  We think that maybe the boys bumped me as they were chasing each other and made me fall down.  My left side of my face and head as well as my left shoulder and chest are all bruised where I fell.  And the doc said the impact is what made my RIGHT lung collapse.

So there you have it.  Don't know what happened, can only guess.  Glad it wasn't worse and glad I got myself into the bedroom ro rest a bit from whatever happened.

I didn't realize anything had happened until my hubby came home and said I was asking hin the same questions over and over again and some of my sentences were not making sense. Again, those are signs of a concussion.  And I thought a rib or two on my right side might be broken because of the pain and I couldn't take a very deep breath.

Luckily we decided to go to the ER because of the breathing issue because upon their exam and tests because they discovered my lung was 50% collapsed.  They had to put a tube in to release the air in the outer chamber so the lung could reinflate.

So, long story, so sorry, but that is why you haven't heard from me or seen any creations.  Right now I am dealing with severe headaches and pains all over until I recover.

I did make a quick birthday card for my daughter in law, but forgot to take a photo before I gave it to her.  Sorry.

Once I get some of my strength back, I hope to get back to creating again.

Hope to be posting some creations soon.

TWO MORE SIMPLE BUT BEAUTIFUL VALENTINE CARDS AS PROMISED

HEY BLOGGIES,

How was your weekend?  Mine was good and I loved that we actually had sunshine and blue sky.  It has been few and far between these past few winter months.

Here are two more Valentine card ideas that I sent to those who ordered from me so far this month.  Want two cards sent to YOU??  Submit an order with me and I will send them out to you. Easy Peasy!!

 These two cards again use the Heart Border Punch and the Hearts Embossing Folder.  They are almost the same except for one exception...can you find the difference??


The small heart inside the "O" is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on this second card.

Hope you enjoyed my Valentines I have shared with you.  I will have some more in the days to come.  I LOVE to try different colors for Valentines, so stay tuned for those!!

VALENTINES USING THE HEART BORDER PUNCH

HEY BLOGGIES,

For those customers who ordered the HEART BORDER PUNCH that was on sale last week in our WEEKLY DEALS, I am sending two different cards for you to use for ideas in making cards with your punch.

Today I am showing two of my cards I designed using this Discounted HEART BORDER PUNCH,  It is actually one idea that I changed up to make two different cards.  When I have several cards to make that are the same, I like to change them up a bit.  It keeps me from getting bored while making them AND I keep my creativity fresh.

 This first one used Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette.  The strip of pink is where I used the heart border punch as well as I glued on some cherry cobbler hearts I had punched out for a card just like this but with reversed colors.


Then I got to looking at the large heart and thought it would be perfect for me to use to die cut out the LOVE and then use the negative part or the whole heart on the card.  This one is real red with pink pirouette.  I just kept the LOVE intact inside my die while I put dimensionals on the heart and attached to my card.  Then I took out the little bits inside the letters one by one and glued them into the word HOLES in the heart. (like the loop inside the "L", the two spots inside the "O", etc.)  I REALLY like how this looks and I liked it so much I made the rest of my customer's cards with this design.

Tomorrow I will show you two other cards I also created for those who ordered the punch from me.

Thanks for stopping by.

For THIS WEEK'S SPECIALS, I am ALSO sending out two cards using the punches/dies that can be ordered at a discount.  All you have to do is use HOST CODE:  
J2NHFYTS

When I am notified that you have placed an order, I will mail you your two cards using the punch or the die:
