Hey y'all. I hope you're having a great week so far and are staying warm! Do you ever start something and then have things beyond your control change those plans? Well, that's what happened to me this week.
I knew I wanted to do snowflakes for this week's color challenge (it's a bit of an inside story, Hi Tammy!) and so I got out my supplies and got started making my card Tuesday evening when it all went you know where in a hand-basket! I got very sick and wasn't able to get more than halfway through. I had card stock cut, stamps and pads out and even with pain meds I wasn't able to make my card. I even had it all planned out and knew just what I wanted. AUGH! Many of you don't know this about me but not only am I a nurse, but I ran with our local Fire and Rescue department for many years driving our Medic Units. I've only called for an ambulance once before and I was sooo sick Tuesday night that I actually called 911. Of course, as I was talking to the dispatcher I was crying because I was almost more distressed about the fact that I was calling 911than the fact that I was sick enough to need to call them. Well, needless to say, it was definitely a good thing that I called because less than 4 hours after I called I was being admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery. :( Since they had to work me into the O.R. schedule I had a few hours with nothing to do but distract myself from the pain. When my sweet son-in-law went to my house to get my overnight bag I had him get my mac-book and I decided to finish making my card. Here's how my card would have looked, if I had been able to finish it on Tuesday evening-
