I know I shouldn't make promises I don't keep. The last time I posted I had intentions of staying current and keeping my blog updated. What happened to that?! I haven't made too many cards lately but did finish up this birthday card yesterday. I think it turned out pretty cute and I love this technique for folding the cards.

It's been so long since I've been on my blog. 2009 turned out to be a hard year. However, I am now in remission and hopefully the bad stuff is all behind me. This promises to be a busy year as my daughter and her fiance are getting married in November. I am making "Save the date" announcements now. Busy and fun...

Hard to believe I know! This has been a hard summer for me to keep up with things. I was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma in April and have been going through aggressive chemotherapy and am ready now for an autologous stem cell transplant. I haven't been working on cards as much as usual and it was difficult to find something cheery to say in a blog. Now that I'm getting closer to getting through this, I'll try to do a little better. I go back in the hospital September 9th for my last chemotherapy and the transplant. It will be a long stay - 3 1/2 to 4 weeks, but I so want to get it over with.
This card is one I made to send to my neighbor who has been taking care of my pampered poodles while I've been in the hospital. I love the pleated technique on the bottom of the card. See splitcoaststampers for directions. Thanks for checking in.

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. I have been in and out of the hospital a couple of times and am dealing with some issues. I like to keep my blog updated, but somehow it just hasn't happened. This card is a cute birthday card that I made a while back. I like to have a couple of these on hand so I don't find myself without a b-day card when I need it ;-) Thanks to my loyal followers who continue to check in even when I'm slacking. I'll try to do better.

Hubby and I have been to Bloomington today for a graduation party for my college roommate's daughter. It was a beautiful day for it and a great time to catch up with my old friends. Now we're home and I'm thinking about doing a little stamping. This birthday card is one I did for my daughter. My inspiration was probably from Tori again; she has the greatest ideas! ;-) I see somebody from Rushville IL has visited my blog; now who is it?! No fair visiting and not commenting. Hope you all have a great week.

I've had this card made for awhile. I often color way too much and don't get cards made with my images~ oh, well! It's alumni weekend here so the ole town is hoppin'.
It's a beautiful day, so I imagine everyone will have a great time. We don't have any big plans but it's fun to see everyone in town. Hope you all enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.

It's been way too long! I know how upset I get when my favorite bloggers don't post daily!! And...I'm doing good to post monthly! We've been to Arkansas for a visit and things have been hectic here, but that's no excuse ;-) I forgot about this card. I raised the wagon on dimensionals which made it really cute. I love these little girls! CC Designs and Whipper Snapper are such great stamps. I wait every month to see what they have new coming out. I did get my new air compressor for my Copics and love it! Most of the cards I'm making now have air brushing incorporated into them ;-)

I need to keep my blog more current....especially when I have a few followers (thanks Sue, carddoodles, and Gail!) It's so much more fun when you have visitors to your blog! I've been stamping quite a bit this week but don't have the cards finished yet. I love to stamp and color and then I procrastinate about finishing up the cards.
I love these little monkeys; I think they make a great birthday card for either a man or a woman. It's always nice to have a few birthday cards made up. Kristen does a good job of keeping mine depleted ;-) Anyway, thanks for stopping bye. I love to hear from you.
