My Crafty & Talented Friends

First of all {HUGS} to all my friends and readers, I have missed blogging for what feels like a month.  I know just a few days-to a week maybe...but you know what I'm saying here, I'm sure you can relate.
Well a few things have happened over the last week. I sold 2 items off my Etsy shop!!!  They were both sold to the same woman and the cards were the Bad Day Huh? card and the Self-Pity card.  So I am thrilled to pieces about that!  Also, the person I sold the smoking guardian angel card to said she LOVED the card and it was better than she had envisioned it.  So again...thrilled!  I am currently working on more cards of course.  I have a few ideas that I am working with as well as some completed cards that I just have to post.
I am mulling over the idea of making cards that look one way but when you open them, will surprise you.  Meaning, take my Self Pity card for instance, it was pretty to look at in the front and has a beautiful flower on it and says a genuinely caring statement, when opened it says something to make you laugh and it's something that you weren't expecting.  I don't know, I really want to try that for a while.  What do you all think.  Have you had any experience with that regardless if its a card or not, but any feed back would be great!
Here are some cards that I have been working on...only two of these are going to be posted onto Etsy b/c the others I am trying to keep for a gift box as a raffle prize....

The three Christmas cards are going into the raffle card box, I am making more for that but that is what I have right now.  The raffle gift is part of my entry fee for the Yellow Ribbon Center Fund Raiser that will be going on here in Cincinnati next month.  I am looking forward to that!

Let's see what else.  Oh I was asked to become the full time Moderator for the yahoo group PBS_Swappers which I am so excited to do.  So far it's been OK, but then again it's only been a week, LoL! Just kidding, I am sure everything will be fine and go well. 

I have had a topsy-turvy kinda week last week as far as physically goes.  I was on a lot of medicine for this and that.  Well I went off most of them, mainly b/c I just felt I didn't need them.  Well after "hearing it" from my mom and doctors, Christy went back on all the meds at one time.  Yeah, not pretty.  I looked like a stumbling drunk for a good part of the week.  I could hardly type, and I think I am a pretty fast typist, but I could hardly get a sentence out without trouble.  Sooooo, I'm off again.  I know I know, bad idea, but I couldn't help it.  I couldn't function like that.  I may try just starting out with a few at a time and not all at once and get myself back up to where I "need" to be, but I just can't handle all that at one time.

Tomorrow {well today now} I will see Eric for the first time since Thursday.  I miss him and I can't wait til he comes over.  I was invited over there Sunday for dinner by his mom, but I had a headache and just couldn't do it.

Well I am on a typing fest now, so I will close and {HUGS} again to you all!!!

Hi Christy!!

It's good to hear that you're back!! In fact, I just realized that you were gone... (of course, I was gone too, on vacation) The cards are so pretty! I think surprise cards are a great idea! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
Have a great day!
