BLOG CANDY TIME!


This is another wonderful digital image from Fred She Said and I know it would be a great card for a dad or Mom in Afganistan to send home to their daughter. I used SU cardstock and DSP from the Book of Colors 6 X 6. I used Spellbinders oval dies and the new banner dies. Oh the embossing folder is from SU and I used the pearls that come in the SU packs it really makes the card elegant, don't you think? I can't thank Fred She Said enough for the wonderful digi's I won. Check their store at: http://fred-she-said-store.blogspot.com/
I reached over 10,000 blog hits but I didn't get a chance to post anything so tomorrow I will get a picture up of the blog candy I'm giving away and on my birthday (April 14th) I will draw from a hat the lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment between now and then I'll check daily keeping tabs then late in the evening on the 14th I'll draw the lucky winner.
Personal Journey: I can't believe its Thursday night and within 48 hours my grand daughter will be going to Prom. It's been a busy week but a productive week. I had my windows installed, the new shudders on the house, spoke my piece at Rooms to Go and told them I would never refer anyone to their company. I spent today with my friend True, we celebrated our birthday's having lunch then went back to her place to catch up on chatter. I also stopped and visited with Mom, she didn't look good today she was real blotchy on her face and her legs looked horrible. I was shocked to see the shape her legs were in, since the surgery she has really changed in her personality. She's agitated all the time, she cusses, she is always picking or scratching and she loves to take all her clothes off! Yep you heard me all her clothes, Abby the nurse said "I left to use the restroom I wasn't gone 3 minutes and there she was stripped naked with all her clothes thrown on the floor." At night Mom picks at her legs pulling the skin off and causing bleeding everywhere. I'm going to get something to calm her down, she wasn't like this before her hip surgery, now she's constantly figitting and like I said she acts spaced out and doesn't talk like she use to. We have a doctors appointment on Tuesday with the surgeon and then I'm going to take her to our regular doctor, I'm worried about her but she doesn't even know who I am.
Everyone have a great Friday I'll post as soon as I can with the blog candy, tell everyone the more the merry to enter.

Sorry, I hit reply too soon - I wanted to tell you that I said a prayer right then and there when I read about your mom. Many prayers and hugs for you and know that He knows our journey long before we do and in His time, all is understood and just know that I am on bended knee for you and hope you are holding up okay, keep up a good support system. It's tough to hold on to so much and be strong for others - take some time for you, my friend. Blessings and hugs and many, many, many prayers! x0x0

This turned out so soft and pretty! I'm sure they would love to send it home to their daughter. You did an amazing job on it. Sorry about your mom and I'll be praying the doctor can help her.
