I'm looking like I might have picked up a few more followers, and I'd like to say "Welcome:!!! I'm so very happy to have you, and thank you for becoming a part of our family!
Thanks to all of you who sent me birthday and get-well wishes!!! I appreciate you thinking of me!
Well, it appears I may have misdiagnosed myself. It's probable it's not my blood pressure that was causing my headaches and nauseousness because, whatever the matter is, it has developed and progressed into a full-fledge ear ache which is driving me crazy; every time I swallow; feelsl like pins and needles are jabbing me in my ear. Upon the DH's insistence Ive called my doctor and I have an appointment for tomorrow morning.
Despite not feeling my best, my family went out their way to give me a beauful birthday and no matter how lousy I've felt these last few days, it can't take away the wonderful time I had this weekend -- I just hope I didn't pass anything on to anyone! My weekend ended with them taking me riverboat gambling where I won about $50! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! I guess my winning streak is still with me!!! LOL!
I did manage to start a couple of projects and got one completed. This candy-card reminded me of a small "two-fer" candy-card box I designed and did a cut.file for for Valentine's day earlier this year. I called it a "two-fer" becaudse it is made of one (1) sheet of paper; however, this is one I lifted and although I put my own spin on it it's in 2 parts -- a box is attached to the card:
If you enlarge the picture, the embellishment of the front reads "thank you for being you" and was made using the UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder) technique -- yep! I'm back to playing with this stuff again!
Here is the inside of the card and a picture of the candy box opened:
I hope you like it and that it inspires you to do something wonderful!
Before I leave I must thank my friend Wendy. Referring back to my winning streak, I won this blog candy from Wendy a week or so ago, and I received it Saturday:
Wendy is another gifted "artist" you'll enjoy visiting if you aren't already familiar with her. And, if you look closely at my candy box project for today, you'll see I actually used the little bird that was included in the set with my blog candy! Thanks, again, Wendy!
Well, I've still got some recouperating to do and a LOT of catching up, so I'll be with all you as soon as I can.
