My mom's birthday is Christmas Day, and this is the card I made for her by case-ing myself from THIS CARD. I used last year's retired Dashing DP, and the stamp set Party Hearty. The "Dec. 25" is from last year's hostess set, Perfect Presentation. Like I've said before, I love the way the "CELEBRATE YOU" image from Party Hearty fits perfectly in the Scallop Circle Punch.

If you are a regular reader, you know that I've been recovering from surgery on my foot since Thanksgiving. As a result, I still have pumpkins, pilgrims, and turkeys as the holiday decor in my home instead of snowmen, Christmas trees, and stockings. I hadn't done any shopping either ... until today. I was able to borrow a wheelchair and my dear friend Karen Laub took me shopping. Wheelchairs take some getting used to, and we had many many giggles over our awkwardness! We'll be talking about this day for years to come, I'm sure!
Karen also transported me to a doctor's appointment for my yearly exam. It was so hot in the doctor's office, I about died! My doctor is standing there talking to me in a turtle neck and wool blazer claiming to be quite comfortable while I'm sitting there in a lightweight examination gown with sweat dripping from my head! Needless to say, she's sending me for blood work to check my hormone levels! (If you're a 40-something female, you can probably relate to this story!)
Thanks for stopping by today!
