Pretty in Pink

This is my card for today, its a Whipper Snapper stamp that I used and colored with Copic's then put on SU card stock layering it several times.  I added a Organdy white ribbon and bow and tiny greeting.  I've been busy with the Operation Write Home Blog Hop coming up this weekend and will be offering a tutorial and blog candy for the inspiration that we should all "Pay it forward".  If you have the time to make some cards this weekend for OWH or just want to donate some cards, envelopes or postage you can contact me or   I've been making cards for almost a year and try to make 100 a month, its what helps keeps my sane.
Today I had to take Mom to the heart specialist it was her 6 month check up and Dr. Powers said she was doing great with a strong heart and great BP, Cholesterol and lipids.  I wanted to talk to the doctor alone about Mom but Mom pitched such a fit it didn't happen.  She wouldn't talk with the doctor but yet when I told him she wasn't sleeping well she denied it. Said I was telling stories, then I asked him to check her throat because of her choking and always feeling like something is stuck.  She said she didn't have a problem and if any of this was leading up to putting her in the hospital she wouldn't deal with it.  I wanted to ask him about her being delirious so much lately but she was so hostile by then we left.  Now I'm just trying to stay away from her or I'll lose my temper and I can't do that.  Well enough of me, please know I appreciate you listening to me it at least makes me feel like I'm not alone.
God Bless,

Jeanine: I'm not a Dr. but my friend's mom was going thru the choking thing. It's a normal aging thing. They have a little day surgery procedure where they use a "balloon" to stretch the esophagus. No more choking. You should definitely talk to her doctor. Love the card! I have such a problem using patterned paper. ~Robin

Beautiful card. The little girl stamp is so cute. I sure hope things get better with your mom. I know that it has to be hard for you to see her going through this. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Granny, I'm praying hard for you and your mom both. I've been through what felt like some tough stuff with my Gram lately, but not even close to what you go through every day with your mom. I just wanted to tell you that I am so proud of you for continuing to be such a terrific daughter to her, no matter how tough she is on you. Please, anytime you want to talk about it, I am here to listen!! BIG HUGS, Deedee
