Smilin' Kind of Day

This week, I received a happy mail from a very sweet, kind blogging friend. I am so excited. I've been in a bit on creative slump this week, so these new goodies definitely help me to get creative again. 

I played with one of my new goodies and made this CAS card for Paper Play "Let's Get Sentimental" challenge. The sentiment is from our sponsor Create With TLC. If you check their site, you'll find tons of freebies.

I've been wanting this stamp for the longest time and have some ideas storming in my head for some creative use. Now, I just need to find more time to play. Like the saying, "So many stamps, so little time!"

Please check out the Paper Play DT fabulous creations HERE.

This morning, knock on wood, is the first day in a long time where I have a pretty good morning. No bad heartburn and nasuoesness that lingering for hours. And that... makes me giddy. I feel the old, cheerful me coming back up the surface. I got my diagnosis, did my crying and worrying, but I am ready to move on. I do have to change and remove a lot of stuff from my diet, and have routine screening every couple years, but you know what life is too short to worry about those things. 

It's a good feeling, that as I type my blog, I find myself smiling and feeling giddy. I have awesome hubby who takes such good care of me, awesome family who's cheering me on, and new stamps waiting to be used... life is good! :)

Thank you all for stopping by and may you have a fabulous day that brings smile to your face.

I love love love this card, Vera. One of my favourite stamps too, and I love the way you've kept the colouring to a minimum, so effective. I'm glad you're feeling smiley and happy too (and my goodness, you were no way in a creative slump, I love your last card too!).
