This is a B'day card to have on hand,it seems that whenever I need one I'm always rushing to make one. So I think I'll try to make a couple to have ready to go.
The stamps are from Inkadinkado,I've been getting quite a few sets at Michael's with the 40% off coupon in the flyer every week. and the punch is Fiskars and the scalloped square is from Wish Rak,I hope to get them one day,but right now it's not in my budget.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend,it's pretty quiet at this end.Just been jumping everytime the phone rings,hoping it'll be the right call.
Hugs to you! Diane

This card is really plain and simple but I felt like I needed bright colors to lift me up. I had this Best Friend ribbon which I had picked up at Michael's (on sale of course) and thought it was the perfect color for uplifting.The stamp is from Indadinkado.
So yesterday was a wonderful but tiring day. My sister was off and so she called me to go for coffee,we went at 8:30 AM! Lol,I'm not used to getting up early,but for my sister,I would do anything to spend time with her. So we went to Tim's for coffee and yacked waiting for the mall to open at 9:30. The we went to the Buck store,she was looking for embellishments for some layouts she was doing. She is a wonderful poetic person. She has written lots of poems and is now making an album out of them.
Then we went to Michael's,the Dollorama,Zellers...we had a blast.
It's just too bad we don't do this more often,but now we're goint to try and do it every 2nd friday on her day off.
Then she took me out for lunch,we had an awesome time,I love spending time with my only sister,she's the BEST!!!!
Have a wonderful thursday!

This is a card I made for my Honey for him to read when I have my transplant.
Just to let you know what a wonderful hubby I have. He has been by my side through every drs appt,through every surgery,through every bad mood I have been in. Supporting me,taking care of me,spoiling me,bringing my spirits up when I am down.
So the sentiment inside is gold embossed and says "You're simply the best".
I also wrote him a nice letter,a sappy one,he likes that kinda stuff! That's why i love him so much. I believe he was sent to me from my parents up above!
And the reason I chose to emboss in gold is because he has a heart of gold!
Have a super monday everyone,

Here is Willow w Hot Chocolate. Nothing like a hot cup of hot chocolate on a snowy night like tonight! Which we heading out for coffee at Tim Horton's but I might have a hot chocolate instead. I've been so cold all day long. Just can't seem to warm up except when I'm in bed.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend,ours was pretty quiet as always. Not much excitement in this household,lol!
Have a great week everyone,

So now on to this wonderful B'day Rak!
Look at this birdie-ful birday card I rec'd from
http://inksomething.blogspot.com/ the talented Kristine. I don't know if you knew Kristine,but those are my 2 favorite colors!
And look what she has created in the inside!!!
My hubby was so amazed with this card! So was I!
You are one talented and patient card maker!
Maybe one day I'll try to create something as gorgeous as this!
Hope you all had a wonderful V Day,ours was kinda ruined.
We had planned a pasta dinner at home,well at 4:10 pm,one of the tenants (my DH is a super intendent in a 49 unit apt building) knocks on the door to say he had left and came back home to a disaster in his unit. He had left running water in his bathroom sink with a towel in it. So can you imagine the mess...gallons of water not only in his unit,but in the unit below him.
It is now 6:05 and my DH is still there cleaning. I feel so bad for him! He's the type of guy that he would give his shirt off his back,always helping out someone and he gets this back...it's a good thing I made him a little Valentine surprise last night. I had hidden some chocolates all over in the apt and he had to find them,it was in a romantic way....he had so much fun and it was so funny watching him find them. He looked like a kid on a Easter Egg Hunt!!!
I love him so much!!!!! I'm blessed to have him with me!!!
Hugs to all of you! Diane

No I havent made a design team,lol,that is so funny!
For those of you that have been following my blog,you know that I have been on the transplant list since June 4/07 for a new liver.
Well last night I rec'd a very exciting phone call. My hepathologist's secratary called to inform me that my specialist Dr. Ghent from London where my transplant will take place,called and asked him to call me to let me know...that I am now the 2nd patient on the list!!!!!!!!!! So that it shouldn't be much longer,finally,it will get done!
So I ask all of you my wonderful blog friends and all your friends to keep me in your prayers!
There are so many emotions going through my head right now. I'm happy,i'm anxious,excited,
scarred,and most of all,sad that someone will have to loose their life in order for me to get their liver. My niece will keep you posted when it does happen,it can still be awhile,but there is light at the end of the tunnel!
Thanks for listening!
