Happy Update & The Card That Made Itself!

Hi there, everyone!

It's the Blog Hogger back with an update on Kathy's health. I am so happy (and relieved) to report that Kathy is doing much, much better today! Her fever is coming down (at times it's normal) and her blood pressure is good. They've taken her off pain meds (for muscle spasms in her leg). She's starting to chat with us and was even sitting in the chair in her room while we were visiting today!

She's only getting the pain meds now as needed, rather than constantly, so they expect her to continue to improve quickly. The funniest (strangest?) thing about all this is that her back isn't hurting and she's doing wonderful in that regard! Weird, huh?

Now, on to the card that made itself.

I received a call last week and, while chatting, remembered the person had a birthday quickly getting closer! I scurried into my craft room and started a flurry of choosing cardstock, cutting, stamping and gluing. Instead of my usual tearing out of hair and indecisiveness, everything just seemed to work out perfectly the first time, and before you could shout, "It's a Man Card!", it was done! lol

And here it is:

And here are the details;

  • Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla & Crumb Cake 
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip (for the sentiment & sponged onto the Crumb Cake layer)
  • Accessories: Woodgrain Emboss Folder, Deco Labels Collection Framelits (the two smallest ones), random ribbon and brads
It is literally a 10 min. card! (Gotta love those!)

Stay tuned for some cards made from new product.

Quick and easy...and so very happy hugs,
