Today I am filled with an overwhelming gratitude... especially for the wonderful people in my life. I've been gone from the blog for awhile-- school has started again, keeping me very busy, and "life unexpected" has happened. I hadn't been feeling well for a little while-- well, that's an understatement-- I felt pretty darn bad for about 10 days and after finally, reluctantly, carting myself off to the doctor, and several high-tech tests, I found myself in the hospital for 5 days. I am feeling 100% better and, wow, it is so good to be home!  I am so thankful for the wonderful doctors, nurses, family and friends who were all a part of my care.

This card is one of many I am making for some of those very special people to say "Thank you."

I just have to add that I love this new paper from CTMH called Flirty!  The colors are so cheerful and "fallish." Just looking at this paper makes me happy!

Ink: CTMH Archival Black
Stamps:  CTMH "For Every Occasion"
Embellishments (all CTMH):  Adhesive Foam Tape, Designer Rhinestone Brads, Just Blooms
