Never enough time...

Isn't that the truth.

Hey guys. I had every intention of posting a complete update today but there were some phone calls to deal with and what not so now my time for posting has slipped away. But I still wanted to get this card up here on the ol' blog before too much longer. 
So some things with mom are good, some not so much. There is a possibility that she may be moved to a hospital in Seattle later this week. Her pancreas isn't looking great and they want to stay on top of that. Which, on my most selfish level, will mean even less time for me here at home. But I need to be with my mom. So my best laid plans of hopefully going to every-other-day posts might be shot for just a little bit longer. 

I did manage to get this card done for the previews last week using the new Reading Rebecca stamp at ATS. I love, love, love this sassy little beach beauty... isn't she fab? Part of me wishes I could be her for just a minute or two, LOL. 

Well, I really should be getting ready for work. Hopefully I'll be back to chat at y'all again sooner rather than later. :)

Amy your card is talking about my whole week off last week. I swear I had a great week and still I just didn't get all that I wanted done done. lol... I do love this newest stamp, she looks a little closer to what I look like on the beach. Of course I would never have a bikini on. lol... I'm more of a one piece kind of girl. Anyway my friend, I hope all goes great for you this week. I love your card and continue to be in Aww of you and your ability to even post a word at this point. Hugs, Lisa

Adorable card and I can certainly understand how you could wish to escape for a bit to relax on a beach to get away from your daily stresses. I hope your Mom gets some good news soon and family always comes before anything. You worry about your Mom and the blog will still be here later
