Valentine Balloons

In my last post I said I was back from the Christmas break, but here I am again without a post or comment for well over two weeks! Ugh!  The nice part was, Our family just got back from a week long break from the cold and snow.  We went on a cruise!  It was so much fun and great weather too.  Now, getting back to normal life, I have to let you know that I won't be around much for a while.  I am scheduled for surgery to repair a rotator cuff tear in my right shoulder.  Apparently I won't be using my right hand even to type.  No crafting either!  So I thought I'd leave you with a Valentine message given by all five friends from the W+9 Going Places stamp set.  Thanks so much for your patience, and I will be back as soon as possible.


Supplies used:
W+9 Going Places
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
PTI Pure Poppy cs
Doodle Bug pp
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die
Doodlebug sequins
Scraps of red cs
Paper Studio card base
Thank you so much for coming over to visit!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!

  10. Darling Valentines, Kara Lynn! Now. Don't worry about anything. I'll be think of, and praying for you, for a successful surgery and a rapid, complication free recovery. You just take good care of yourself, and when it's time, you'll be back in your craft room. Blessings to you!! Bev

  11. sweet set of cards, kara... wishing you well as you undergo the rotator cuff surgery. take your time getting better... crafting will always be here!

  12. These are all so darling, Kara! I will add you to my prayer list that your surgery and recovery go fine. For a while it can seem like it is worse than it was before surgery, but then one day, bam, you'll turn the corner with your PT and it will all be worth it. At least, that's what happened with the Mister, but I'm sure since you're a woman, you'll not be so impatient with it! Oh, was that out loud? I'll see you when I see you, but I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers! Hugs, Darnell
