It’s been a very long week… and it’s only Tuesday! How on earth does that happen? My greatest fear is that since it’s only Tuesday, will this week seem like it has lasted a month? Gosh, I certainly hope not!!
It all began on Sunday when we received a phone call from our darling Daughter )DD, who usually comes for Sunday dinner. She couldn’t make it. In fact, she couldn’t stand, walk, or sit because of the pain in her lower back. Alarms in my head went off…those “Mom” alarms. I reminded her about her father’s herniated disc, and suggested she make a doctor appointment NOW. All sorts of things were going through my head, it’s a MOM thing… I didn’t get much sleep.
Flash forward… Monday Morning… the telephone rings, the caller is sobbing, it’s DD who is at work and in significant pain. Now… this kid has the highest pain threshold of any person I’ve ever known, a threshold much higher than my DH (hubby), who is stoic when it comes to pain. MOM ALARMS!!
So… now I’m doctoring an injured bird, making dinner and thinking about this month’s club meeting. Somehow, in my mind I fast forward to Tuesday (remember, it’s only Monday?) I begin to panic about food, prepping for my club meeting, etc.… and prepare a feast for club. LOL, only the club meeting is on WEDNESDAY, not tomorrow!!
LOL, I haven’t even cut for club yet… but I have a whole day left!! What can I say? It’s been a long week!!
This is one of three cards we’ll be making at this month’s club meeting. Each card will showcase both new products and new 2012-14 In-Colors.
The birds aren’t new… they’re from ‘the best of everything’ stamp set… but they’re stamped using midnight muse ink and the new firm foam pad! The ink coverage is awesome!!! I’m going to have to order all new stamp pads, and I really hate that… well, my budget and sensibilities hate that… it’s going to be a long fight, I can tell!
OOOH… this is something new!! Itty Bitty Banners and Framelits ‘happy birthday’ sentiment… lots of fun!
And new stitched grosgrain ribbon is fun too. LOL, funny story… we (demos) were allowed to pre-order daffodil delight stitched grosgrain ribbon but mine came in totally bleached out white!! I knew if I called Stampin’ Up! they would promptly send me the correct ribbon… but who cares? Really, I can use the white ribbon too!
See you tomorrow with another new card share… off to more mom business. Our kids are supposed to take care of us age when we aren’t they? Please keep our DD in your prayers, she’s still in a lot of pain and she’s just in her mid 20’s! I’m so tired!!
Hope you have a wonderful and REALLY short week!!
