I'm Alive!

Wow, it has been a rough week. I think that is the sickest I have been in a while. Not being able to wear my contacts was pretty bad too. Evidently it was just allergies to something, but that has never happened before. Thanks for the well wishes from everyone, I really appreciated them. So I am back today with this card. I haven't stamped a sentiment on it yet. A lot of times I wait until I need a card to add the sentiment that way I have a better choice when I am looking through my stash. My friend Elaine called me yesterday to tell me about a yard sale near my house that had a bunch of Stampin Up sets for sale. I went over there is picked out three sets, including this one. It is called Touch of Nature. I stamped it with black Palette ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils. All cardstock is DCWV, the flower is from Making Memories and the center of the flower is a decorative accent from Micheal's. The twine came from Jo-Ann's but I am not sure of the origin.
On a personal note, if you don't mind, please keep Kip and me in your prayers. Hopefully we are nearing something pretty great, but nothing is certain. I believe God knows our needs and that prayers made with a faithful heart will be answered. Thank you so much. I do have to tell you though, that I have an amazing husband. Sometimes I still can't believe that he is mine. Thanks for stopping by tonight.
