Happy Birthday Blooms

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

What a week!  As some of you know, I've been struggling with gallbladder issues.  Well, last weekend I was "done" and went to the emergency room (for the 2nd time!) and finally had surgery.  A normally 15 min. outpatient procedure ended up being a 2 hour surgery and a 4-day hospital stay!  I was really out for the count after that (didn't even what to craft if that tells you anything!)

Today was the first day I've felt like myself and I just couldn't wait to do a little playing in my craft room - yeah!  Thanks to these challenges for getting my mojo healing too!

(Lesley is also having a sketch challenge!)

(This is a new challenge blog for me!)
