Here is this week's card sketch for Operation Write Home:
For my card, I decided to create a birthday card:
Supplies: pp - Sandy Lion; stamp - Hampton Arts; dies - Nestabilities; embossing folder - CB Polka Dots
Right now, we should be winging our way back from California after having attended my brother-in-law's wedding. But, alas, we had to cancel our trip. The day after coming home from the hospital after my appendectomy, my husband started having pain, swelling and severe redness in his left calf. So, Dr. Jayne immediately got on the internet and decided he had a blood clot. No sleep that night! He is not a doom-and-gloom-type person, but, even he was quite concerned. When he got to the doctor's the very next day, they, too, thought it was a blood clot. After an ultrasound, they decided it was cellulitis. He was started on antibiotics -- no change. Then, he had to go in daily for shots. The swelling just started to go down today, but they are concerned that it is taking so long to clear up.
What else happened? Oh, yeah, my less-than-2-year-old, apple green Dell laptop's screen went black on Saturday -- dead!! Peter took it to see the Geek Squad at Best Buy, thinking just to look at it would be almost the price of a new laptop. They opened it up, took out the board, put it back in and it works! Best of all ---- no charge! We couldn't believe it!
