Thank You

Good afternoon!
Hope your week is off to a great start!

Popping in quickly with some cards using Betsy's new Make It Market Kit: Nostalgic Notions.
If you happen to have caught my post about my oldest son and the freak accident he had a couple of weeks ago then you'll understand why all of my cards today are Thank You's...
I have a long list of people to thank for dinners and gifts and such.
If you need a catch up you can read about it HERE...
but I do want to warn that there are some graphic photos and details.

to the cards!
My first one is a CASE of one of Betsy's...
I just kept it slightly more on the simple side because all of these have to go into the mail...

MIM:Nostalgic Notions

And because I've got quite a few cards to make and I'm hoarding the gorgeous patterned paper included in the kit until (I hope) they sell it individually (PLEASE!!!)...
I dug into my stash and found some older October Afternoon paper pads that work perfectly...

I can tell you that Tinsel and Tags is my favorite MIM kit...
though I'm REALLY excited to see what Betsy has in store for this year's holiday kit...
but Nostalgic Notions is neck and neck for favorite now.
I waited almost a year for this one...
ever since her SAF kit last year and it was worth the wait...
I LOVE this kit!
I've been cutting and stamping these gorgeous blooms all weekend and then assembling them "assembly line" style...
that way I can make 2-4 of each style easy peasy.
I still have more in the works but figured this was enough cards for one post.

And a quick update on Robert...
we got his stitches out last week and the surgeon said he's looking great.
He should be able to start summer football by the time it starts in July since his helmet pads should hit lower than where his scar is and shouldn't cause any problems.
He still has no feeling on the top of his head...there was a lot of nerve damage and the surgeon said he may recover some sensation but there is permanent damage so not to expect a lot of it to come back.
He finally let us shave the rest of his hair off to match the front of his head...
which while his haircut would have fit right in on the show "Vikings"...
he kind of stood out in our little town.

He's healing.

He's still here with me.

I get to tell him I love him every day...
and hear him say it back.

I thank God every day for that.

Thanks so much for stopping by and till next time!
