Apology and a special!

Hello, friends!

I have not been able to post for the last few days as I have been ill. I have things designed in Design Space, but not made. 

As most of you know, I have lung cancer and I have been getting treatment. Well, I started coughing up blood the other day and had to spend a lot large amount of time with my Oncologist today trying to figure out what was wrong. Long story short, it is due to complications from treatment. 

I will be ok, but it has put me a little behind this week. Hopefully, the medication will kick in and I can get up in that craft room and make some stuff for you wonderful people!

Since most of you have followed this blog for a very long time, you know I am a consistent poster. It pains me not to have content for all of you, good reason or not!

Now onto my special! 
January stamp special


There is a stamp set in the Seasonal catalog that I just love! It is called Love Ya Silly. Not only is it great for Valentine's Day, but I think it would be perfect for thank you cards!

Love Ya Silly!


How do you get this stamp for free? I will be sending this to anyone who places an order of $50 or more on my CTMH website. Also, if you order over $100 I will send a second surprise set! This special is from now until the last day of the month. Don't let this fun special pass you by!

I am sure that you get much strength from the friends that "follow" you and I want to add my love and support! May you feel the strength through the prayers of all of us "unseen" angles at this time.
