Moving Forward

"In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord answered me and set me free." Psalm 118:5

I decided to make a quick and simple card since I have a lot to do today. I will be having surgery tomorrow and I want to make sure the house is in order and there's enough pre-cooked food in the freezer. The house is all cleaned up, laundry is all done and now for the food. I'm going to make a plantain soup, a pot roast and maybe if I still have energy a bake zitti.

Unfortunately, it's not surgery for my arm but something else I have been battling for 3 years. I am a little nerves since the surgery is 4-6 hours long. I'm also nerves about staying over night since, it's a different hospital than I am used to. I went on Monday for my pre-admission testing and I wasn't impressed. The people (workers) there had no class and the hospital looked a little dingy. I just hope I have a better experience tomorrow than I did on Monday.

Today's card was inspired by a card I saw in a Cards magazine. I wanted to focus on the DS paper with little stamping. This is a simple and easy card anyone can make. I used Basic Gray
Bittersweet paper pad . If it were up to me, I would buy all these Basic Gray paper. I love them all.

For the sentiment I heat embossed Best Wishes with Seafoam White embossing powder. Then I used my large oval punch, folded it in half and added a brown brad to coordinate with the paper. Since this was a very simple card, I also added pink paper in the inside of the card. This jazzed up the card a little more.

Well, I better get going and start my errands. Hopefully I will be able to stamp and post a card within 3-4 days. As always, Thanks for taking a look.

  1. Beautiful card. I will be praying for your surgery so please post an update whenyou are able. 4-6 hours does seem like an extremely long time, but we will trust in the Great Physician to be in charge. Hugs.
