Well I had intentions of posting every day new cards, starting with my Card Celebration Cards and then posting Christmas cards and gifts received that are hand stamped or made with Stampin' Up! products. But life had other plans for us over the holidays. Many of you know my Mom moved in with us this fall, she has ovarian cancer and we all felt it would be best if she was with us as she started her next round of Chemo. She has been here almost two months and has enjoyed it very much.
The day of my last posting she got up in the night to go to the bathroom and some medication she took made her a bit disorientated and she fell and broke her hip, she got her first ambulance ride to the hospital and had surgery the next day. She has now moved to a rehabilitation center to get better so she can come home. Hence Stampin' Up! has taken a back seat, but that is the most wonderful thing about my Stampin' Up! job is I have the flexibility so I can be at the hospital and take care of the necessary things while she is getting better.
Now for what you have all been waiting for CARD SAMPLES!!!

Patsy, Its been a long time since the Bermuda cruise and dinner with the Hellers but after reading this post I wanted to contact you and let you know that your mom will be in my prayers for a quick recovery.
Maybe we’ll get to see each other at Leadership and catch up.
All the best,

I am so in love with the “Inspired by Nature” stamp set. When I seen your card I right away thought I could make this card in 10 minutes – giggling! For those of you that don’t know me – a 10 minute card to me is a mission almost impossible, but I’m working on it. I cased your card and made it as Valentine card: http://berrypinestamping.blogspot.com/2009/02/so-glad-we-are-friends.html
However once I got going, I also stamped the inside with grass and daisies, several dragonflies from the hostess set in last fall’s catalog, and verses on both sides of the inside. And yes, once again I was way over 10 minutes. Maybe next time – or not.
Thanks for the inspiration.

It is a great set and one I plan to use often even if it is on the dormant list. And Congratulations on that new recruit you have!
