More magic is always a good thing...

Hello again!

Sorry I missed a couple days there but I'm still working with a hectic schedule and unfortunately my card making and blogging is having to take a back seat to everything else. Gosh, I can't even tell you how much I miss it though... the back and forth and sharing of ideas that we have going on within this wonderful little online community of stampers and colorists. I can't wait to find more time to both create and check out what all of my wonderful crafty peeps have been creating as well. :)

Fingers crossed, I'm hoping that that time is not too far off. Mom has been doing much better this past week, even getting off of oxygen completely and they are reducing her antibiotics as well. She seems to get stronger every day and she is doing really well with the physical therapists. Her goal is to get home as soon as possible and the rest of the fam and I all want that too. So, knock on wood, it looks like she may only have a week or two left in the hospital... I hope, I hope, I hope.

My card today is actually one I made earlier for the sneak peeks over on the ATS blog last week. I'm so glad that so many of you seem to have fallen in love with these tiny Sweet November fairies, and I'm so glad that Christine convinced me to turn them into rubber after so many years. I paired these two up with some yummy Doodlebug scraps and that Doodlebug/Hampton Arts cake stand stamp. If you couldn't tell, I was having fun finding different types of containers to have the fairies interact with on these preview cards. ;)

Well, I hope that you all are doing well and keeping cool in this record breaking heat. I promise to chat at'cha again soon!

Amy that is wonderful news about your mom. So glad to hear she is doing better. I know its been a long hard road for her and the family. Definitely keep up with the PT as that will help her get her strength back. As for the fairies, I peeked yesterday and was thrilled to see them doing so well. One of the reasons, was this gorgeous card as you showcased those little cuties beautifully.

Hi Amy, I am so happy to read that your Mom is getting better. We are still praying for her speedy recovery.. I put in speedy as it seem that she is well on the road at the moment. I just love your card. This little fairies are just too cute. I also love that they can play in or on or around just about anything. Super cute idea. I have to say I'm not surprised. :O) Have a wonderful day. I am counting down to payday as I am buying both of your new stamp sets. Hugs, Lisa

Darling card as usual! I love the cheerful papers and the matching dresses.

Having so much stress and worry about a loved one can really drain your creativity, not just your time and energy. It's tough to let your mind drift when your emotions are roiling. I'm glad there's a light at the end of the tunnel!
