I wanted to jump in here and give a quick update on where I am and what's currently going on in my world. My mom is still in the hospital over in Seattle and things have been a bit back and forth for her this past week. She had another procedure to remove more of the infection from around her pancreas and also had a biopsy done on her kidneys. During all of this she ended up back in the CCU and back on the ventilator for three or four days. She is doing much better now and has been moved back out of critical care. Unfortunately I wasn't able to go and stay with her because I came down with a really bad cold and cough that completely knocked me out for the majority of the week. Yea, lucky me. But, I'm feeling pretty good once again so I'll be heading back over the mountains tomorrow to stay with mom for awhile.
And even though I'll be away this week, that doesn't mean that the blog will be completely quiet. You see, there is a special surprise release from Sweet November debuting this weekend so you won't want to miss checking that out. And you know there is always a chance to win the new rubber as well! ;)
As for today's card, I made this for the CC Designs release previews last week and it features the new Ice Cream Beatrice. I think that this new stamp is completely adorable and I couldn't resist giving her a nice vanilla and strawberry look to go along with her waffle cone tights. Mmm... she's making me crave a bowl of the sweet stuff right now, LOL! And once again, the Neapolitan papers were a perfect choice. Seriously, this paper pack has proven to be quite versatile and has been well used because of that fact.
Well friends, I've got work to get ready for today and a three hour car ride ahead of me tomorrow so I'll chat at'cha later. Hugs! ♥
