Flourish Flowers



I changed my mind. The card I made yesterday went to those folk at the surgery center instead of my neighbor. This "so grateful" one goes to my neighbor.

Stamps: Flourish Daffodil, Flourish Bloom, and Heartfelt Messages (Hero Arts),
Ink: Memories Artptint Brown
Other: Notched Corner Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embossing folders

On a Personal Note:
Dr says "it's all good"!
Here's how part of the conversation went...
DR: It's been two weeks, you can drive and everything now!
ME: I can drive!!!!!!!! ( I must have shown a little too much excitement because she quickly added...)
DR: short distances...to your favorite grocery store with a list... get in and get back out...
ME: (realizing my freedom came with a very short leash) ok I hear you...
I translated favorite grocery store into favorite store and went to Michaels for a few minutes with my daughter. I got my baskets!
Don't worry, I won't over-do. I don't have time for a set back. We've got a lot going on this spring and summer.
My oldest will be home for the summer in a few days after successfully completing her second year at college. Jillana, the next one, is home today to go to an interview at a college here in Atlanta for the Honor's Program. (Did I mention that she is transferring?) She'll return to school to complete her finals and then will be back home for the summer in about 10 days. I'll really proud of both of them.

I'm a little distracted today with my daughter and my friend here, so I'm going to go for now. Have a blessed day!

Beautiful cards. Sounds like things are getting back to normal at your house. That's great to hear.

STUNNING cards. I love both, your coloring is soooooo wonderful and I am taking mental notes to try and transfer even a minute portion to try and have my work look like yours!! Thank you for today's blessing.
I'm also happy that your visit went well. TFS.

Woo hoo! Beautiful cards--love the colors and embossed dots. (I was a big dots fan way before Swiss Dots came along. LOL) Freedom with even a short leash is sublime. Enjoy.
