More Heart to Heart
I know the butterfly is a little big, but I couldn't help it... she's so cute! I had fun making this one... have I said that I love Lizzie Anne Designs? The antenna is made with the little loopy heart and the wings are from all three hearts in the set! The body is from the designer paper punched out with the Word Window Punch. The flower stems are sewn with my sew mini. They don't show well in the photo, but they do show nicely on the real thing. ;)
More paper from Heidi Grace..... my BFF. This one has all kinds of glitter and little embossed dots on it. Man, her paper is just the coolest!

On this card, I used the set Celebration Frames to make the main image frame. I stamped four all together. Along the bottom is the circle and X from the set Shapes & Stitches. Have you seen the new Celebration Fame set? OMG... it's so cute! I adore every single set they make! I'm so lucky to be on their design team! I wish I could sit and stamp all day long!

Sorry it's been so long since I posted. I had some news from my Dr. about my back that set me back a bit. MRI results were not what I had hoped for. My bottom four disks are degenerating and the bones around them have arthritis.... it is narrowing and crowding my spinal cord. That is what is causing the pain in my hip/leg. My only option is a fusion and that will limit my mobility. He won't do surgery now while I'm still young (almost 40 is still young). So, I started physical therapy and some medication. If that doesn't work, I'll see a pain management Dr. and hopefully put off surgery for many, many years. I had already been doing a daily exercise routine since my last surgery, but now they are steppin it up. I am feeling new ab muscles indeed. I am starting to feel better and I'm super optimistic about PT the rest of the month. I do have some nerve damage in my leg, but my strength hasn't been affected. I think I'm going to try stampin while sitting on my exercise ball!! So..... my sitting time is limited for now. Thanks for the emails and the nice comments. I'm working hard in PT and will post as I find time to stamp! Bounce, bounce, bounce..... snort.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by!
