Meet Joy and some Happy News !!!


Happy Thursday dear friends !!! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I have some exciting news but it won’t be a big deal to you all but it sure was for me. I went for my first check up at the surgeons office today and he said things were doing good and I got to move up to some baked potato’s, pasta, mac and cheese. Oh I was doing the happy dance!!! I was never in my live so sick of Broth and jello !!!! I don’t even want to see them for a long time. He said just to eat real soft mushy stuff. Don’t think it didn’t take me anytime to get home and fix me some food lol I was starving lol Okay enough but I was just so excited.


I would like to show you Joy today !! She is the last of my Simply Adorable images from Sugar Nellie and don’t forget to keep stalking Funky Kits for they will be coming soon. I have read all your comments and emails and am so glad to know you all love these too. They are just precious.

I have colored Joy with my copic’s and have used some older papers from Daisy D’s. I have made my card pretty simple for I didn’t want to take away from this beautiful image. The sentiment is from Sandra’s digi’s I just love these digi’s they are punched out with SU punches. I have added some raffia ribbon that a very dear friend sent me some time ago. I use this sparely lol And the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The branch is a MS punch.


Did you all see on the Sugar Nellie Blog today that the new Simply Sassy Blog has opened. Oh you don’t want to miss all the fun there. So keep checking it out.


Now for my second card today I have used this adorable Lily of the Valley image for there new challenge over at Lily of the Valley Challenge Blog. There is a beautiful sketch to follow that Lena made. I have used papers from K&Co and the SU border punch.  my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the branch is from MS. This little beauty has been colored with my copic’s and I have used some glamour dust on her.  The corners were given to me ages ago from a dear friend and thought they worked pretty for this card.



Well have a wonderful evening and hope to see you all tomorrow. Sending big hugs and again thank you so much for your wonderful comments, it means more than you will ever know. Hugs
