You Go Girl!

Hello friends.  My health has been worse than usual for several months, so I haven't been posting or crafting much for that matter. This is also why I've been hit & miss about commenting on blogs.  Just too sick to keep up with anything extra. Normally there are about 23 foods total that I can eat without being sick due to my stomach problem.  Right now the only foods my tummy can tolerate are saltine crackers and oatmeal.  I'm trying not to take pain medicine as that makes my stomach problem worse.  Between the bad pain and the constant nausea it can be very hard to function.  But enough of my woes. :)

On to the card.  I have a friend who is on a weight loss journey and having been on that journey myself I know that encouragement is always welcome.  The image on the card front and the inside sentiment are digital stamps from Doodle Pantry. I tried to give the bird a bit of a feathery look with my coloring.

Inside the card.

 Word Art Wednesday #50 Encouraging or uplifting sentiments.

Twist of Faith Card Challenges #7 Your Favorite - Encouraging cards are my favorite kind to make & this card uses purple, which is one of my favorite colors.

For quite some time now I've been admiring planters made from vintage wooden chairs.  I never said anything to hubby about this.  Recently he came home telling me about this old chair he found that he wanted to turn into a planter and wondered what I thought of the idea.  It's rather amazing how often our minds come together on things without discussing them first.  I guess it comes from 31 years of terrific marriage. :)  So anyhow, this is a picture of the chair planter right after hubby finished it.  The chair has some seriously awesome chippy, old paint.  Makes my heart smile.
  • My mom came safely through surgery she had on Sunday.

Inky hugs!
