Last Day of January.......

Hi there everyone......so yeah, it's the last day of January. Wow time flies, I always say that, don't I? I seem to be your broken record. Repeat, repeat, repeat!!!

I am happy to report that my eyes are looking much better as of today. No, no recent picture....maybe next post, if I think about it. There sure is a big difference and happy to say, I am glad I did this surgery. I was kind of hesitant at first and thought, do I really need this surgery, and almost wanted to cancel. But again, I am glad I did not. Here's hoping this is the last of surgery's for a LONG while for me at least.

So anyways....maybe after I fix my hair and put some make-up on....I will take a picture of the "new me!!"

For my last post of January, I thought posting some cards I made for Hospice would be good. I believe I said I would do this in my last post.

So below are some Valentine cards I made. The "heart" and "Love" are my new dies I bought from "Simon says Stamp." Here is their site, enjoy the journey. Very simple cards, the background is an embossed folder with hearts, then the die and Love are glued on the background and sequins added for a little glitz. A bow on the bottom card. I learned how to make a bow using my two fingers....wish I could show you.

The grey cards are a copy of a card I received last year (top left). The bottom and right are my rendition of that card I received. I just added the bows.
These two cards are a copy of a card I saw on the Internet. I kind of changed it up a bit putting my interpretation into it. Kind of like the way I cook....always changing the recipe before I even cook it. Or when the husband/father starts shaking the salt and pepper on the food without tasting it first.
Here are some St. Patrick Cards....I just used some stuff I had laying around in the St. Patrick box. Stickers, ribbon, the shamrock is actually a heart punch.....3 hearts = a shamrock....pretty neat huh?
Another design using the heart punch and shamrocks and Leprechaun. I did get some new dies from Stampin'up.....dragon flies....looking forward to putting some cards together with those dies. Next post.
So there you have it....the end of January and the beginning of February. What will transpire in February???? One thing I have to get done  this month is our taxes....so, I may not be blogging much in February cause I will be deep in organizing and putting together everything. Hopefully we will get the regular refund back that we usually do....that will help a lot.

We need to get JP some new glasses and pay a few bills.....so what else is new???? Well, you all take care and enjoy the new month. Keep looking up cause better days are here again!!!!
Cheers ~ Louise

I'm glad to hear you are happy with the surgery. Do post a picture of the after when you're all healed. If that is a copy of the card I sent you, I am just thrilled. It is the first time I have been cased. All your valentines are cute and I love the St. Patricks Day cards too. I need to start thinking of taxes too. Ugh.
