Hello Handsome

Hey there!

Yes, my posting is still sporadic... mostly because my crafting time is still sporadic. But I have enjoyed a bit of coloring time recently so I'll have a few cards to share this upcoming week. Promise! :)

I also have some exciting news to share about my mom. Yesterday her kidney doctor talked to her about how it looks like her kidneys are finally starting to work again. So he has decided to skip her regularly scheduled round of dialysis on Monday and check her numbers again after that. We are praying that this means she may finally be done with dialysis once and for all. Which, if that happens, will only help to speed up her release from the hospital. OMGosh, I can't even tell you how excited I am by that possibility!

You would think that mom's return home would bring with it a return to my regularly scheduled life but things may be happening soon that will postpone that a bit longer. I don't want to jinx anything but lets just say that I may have to pack up my crafty room for a while. Sure, that will be a huge hassle and inconvenience in the short term but the promise of a new and bigger space will be well worth it. ;)

Anywho, keep cool my stampy peeps and know that I miss visiting you all and feel so out of the crafty loop!  
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill
paper- Reminisce and Paper Loft
stamps- October Afternoon (fox), Hero Arts (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox creamy brown
buttons

WooHoo! Soooo pleased that you finally have seriously GOOD news about your Mum, even if she is in hospital for a while longer, you can at last feel that she IS going to get better, and SOON! Love your card, I don't even know why in particular - I just DO! May have to lift that sentiment idea, too clever. Hope to see you around, even while you get your "new and improved" space happening - You can still stalk blogland :-) Donna

That's REALLY GOOD news about your mom. I'm keeping my fingers crossed things will go well and I'll continu to send positive thoughts your way.
Love the CAS design and your cute fox. Wish I had that stamp, so I could use it on cards to every member of my familiy, since my last name translates as "fox" LOL. Good luck on your other "project", too!
Hugs, Marianne
