Very Thankful....
for my health!
Okay so I have been gone for 2 weeks
recovering from a bad MS flare up.
I am so thankful that this only happens once every year!
I feel so blessed that god has blessed me with a Great
Family and Supportive Friends!
Thank you for all the prayers and wonderful comments.
I have started taking the dreadful drug....
and it's actually making me feel better!
Usually the side effects are worse then the flare.
So I am going to be back to stamping and posting on my BLOG!
Here is a card I stamped yesterday using the RMHC stamp set
on the back cover of the current Stampin' Up! Catalog!
Tomorrow is MOJO MONDAY
and I will be sharing my card using there sketch!

Very Thankful..
for a Sketch Challenge
from Splitcoaststampers!

I am so thankful that I can STAMP!
I discovered stamping back in 2001.
I had only seen a Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog
and knew I wanted to learn this new found hobby
called Rubber Stamping.
I use to love to buy cards and spent a fortune
on them....then someone said I could make my own cards.
So I sign up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
and my hubby Jason and I learned to Stamp together.
It was so easy for us to Stamp together
when the kids were younger
then the kids got older and we don't have time to
stamp together anymore.
Tonight Jason was doing school work
and the kids were watching TV
So I snuck into my stamp studio
and made this cute card!
Using Very Thankful....
Ronald McDonald House Charities
Stamp Set, it's another one of my new sets.
I used the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge (SC241)

I'm Back......
Still having MS Symptoms...but feeling better
without Steroids....YEAH!!!

So I started feeling better a few days ago.
My right side of my body is still numb & I am VERY tired
So I just rest when the kids are at school.
I was able to sit in my stamp studio and stamp some cards!
The first card I found in my pile of cards..I don't
think I have shared it with you before.
If I have sorry!
The next 2 cards are using some of my NEW Stampin' Up!
In-Color card stock, Dspaper & Ribbon!
I also purchased the Upsy Daisy stamp set on pg 95.
It's not new to SU but new to me!!
I plan on posting everyday so come back tomorrow
and I'll have something to share with you!
Remember to ....

Sorry I have been gone...
don't really know when I will be back!
I am really sick with an MS Flare up. I feel like crap.
I don't even have enough energy to stamp.
Just posting this is hard.
I go to the Doctor on Monday hoping to get some drugs to help.
The picture above is of my dog Kingston....
he comes home everyday with a bone he steals
from other dogs in the neighborhood!
I guess he stole this from a DINOSAUR!!
Can I ask for a favor?
Please say a prayer for me.
Hoping to be back soon!!!

Well I have not played with this stamp set in a very long time!
It was looking kinda lonely along with my other neglected stamps.
I have been too busy this week to post....Sorry!

WE had 3 open house's, football practice and hair cuts!!
Today we are off to tackle Walmart for some school supplies......
YEAH!! Just what Jason and I want to do.
I'm sure I will have a meltdown at Walmart...

Yesterday was Jason's last day with Toyota
He starts at Applebees on Tuesday.
