Hi peeps! Did you miss you miss me yesterday? Please say yes, to make me feel better. LOL. Yep, had pretty interesting Super Bowl Sunday. Hubby and I were supposed to host the Super Bowl family party at our house, but we ended up spending our evening in the ER. Late afternoon I had this excruciating pain in my abdomen that I was crying my eyes out and hubby decided it's time to go to ER.

Have to say I love the efficiency of the doctors and nurses at St. Michael's emergency center. No waiting. I couldn't walk, so basically hubby was carrying me in. I had my blood test and hooked up on IV not long after I arrived. Go figure... I had another cyst burst. Again!! I was like, seriously?? Seems like the pain getting worse each time.

Then to make thing more interesting, I fainted for the first time in my life. As we were checking out, I was like, I don't feel good. Next thing I know, my whole body felt like jello. Pretty peaceful feeling actually, just feel like floating. Lucky for me, hubby was right behind me, so he was able to grab me before I hit the floor.

Needless to say, Monday hubby insisted that I stayed at home. I am the type that unless I am dying or bleeding I still go to work. That just the way I am. So, he put his foot down. I stayed at home and we spent the day going to doctor for follow up and ultra sound. Fun, fun, fun! (Hm... I am being sarcastic. :) )

On a lighter notes, before the whole thing happen, I had a great Saturday. I finished lots of cards, including this one that I made for CASE Study challenge #25. I was inspired by the postage and the bird on the original card.

For this card, again I used my favorite tool, my Silhouette. Cut the bird on a branch image, stamp it with music score background stamp, emboss it, color it in, and voila! The postage also cut using Silhouette.

Okay peeps, hope your week starts in a much better way than mine. Have a blessed week!

Oh my gosh, Vera! What a traumatic Sunday you had! You poor thing, I can't believe you have such a positive attitude after all that.

Your card is really beautiful, I love that little birdie on the branch -- but I can hardly concentrate on it after hearing all that. I'm worried about you! I hope you're okay. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.
