please be patient

Hello there!

Well there was a good reason I've been MIA. My family and I had a wonderful holiday in Palm Springs over this Spring Break. It was so relaxing, the weather was gorgeous and it was just what I needed! Up until leaving life was such a whirlwind. The few days before we left Jacob broke out in a NASTY rash that turns out he's allergic to Penicillin. I spent 2 stints in the ER with him, and thankfully after some steriods, nebulizer and blood work all is ok. We got home on wednesday night.
Now the last few days in Palm Springs I must have slept funny....have you done that before? Woken up stiff or sore? Life goes on right. Well life has been going on and me dealing with it until yesterday mid afternoon when I tried to pick up my big baby boy from his playpen and something bad happend. I'm not exactly sure but I"m in excruiating pain, lower hip/lower back region. Couldn't sleep last night, no position is comfy - sofa, bed, armchair etc.....standing is sometimes ok. So once Jacob wakes up we're off to the walk in clinic to see if I can get some strong med's to counter it. I'm pretty sure there's not much you can do for a pinched nerve, or sciactic problems....anyone know? My biggest worry is today is Chris's last day off and as of tomorrow I have to do all the mom stuff we all do...including lifting Jacob into his crib, carseat etc...and I just can't. I told Chris labour was a walk in the park compared to this.

Anyway there's my rant of the day. Thanks for reading this far. I even have my new circle cutter and havn't played with it yet.

Please pray for a speedy recovery as I can't afford to not be 100%. Too much to do!

Stampingly yours,

All Occasions Card Class

Here are the cards the ladies made at my March All Occasions card class. They make 5 of 2 designs each month. Because I did baby cards this month I had to divide them up so the ladies made 3 boy, and 2 girl.

Its hard to make out but there's dazzling diamonds on the star. We also used the Big Shot and texturz pads on the strip of Celery cardstock.

The other card uses the new Parisian Breeze textured designer series paper on the top. There were a variety of patterns to choose from. Then we used the super fine nova in chocolate for the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp. This was a different look to what I normally do but I wanted to do something different. I hope you like it, and the ladies did too!

Its alot more sparkley in real life!

Here are the projects my daughter made with her friends at her birthday party this past weekend.
The turqoise card is a Hidden Message card which the girls were quite taken with.
The party went really well and I had 5 minutes to spare before the parents arrived so the timing was perfect!
