Whiff of Joy New Winter Release on September 1st

Have you seen the new Whiff of Joy winter stamp release coming out on September 1st.  The DT is showing sneak peeks on their blogs.  You should go here to get the list of blogs showing sneak peeks plus Katharina is offering up a Winter Kit as blog candy (pic below) so make sure you go there to see how you can enter.

Claudia did a beautiful card here with three of the stamps from this set.  But I think my favorite card showcasing the new release is Jeanette's card using Henry on the train here because my son loves trains, anything with trains, and when I seen this card, it reminded me of him.

Just wanted to drop a quick post to say that I am still here.  I had an accident on August 1st and tore my meniscus and dislocated my knee cap.  My knee cap relocated by itself but caused the most pain and did the most damage.  I had an immobilizer on and was on crutches until August 12th so did not have much mobility. When I met with the ortho on August 12th, she gave me a flexible brace and told me I could go off the crutches and start driving again.  It has been a challenge with two young ones and full-time work but my DH has done a lot and continues to be a big help.  I have meet with an ortho surgeon and he wants to see if physical therapy will help heal and strengthen my knee enough so that I do not have to have surgery.  I will meet with the surgeon again in late September to see if all the therapy paid off and I do not have to get surgery.

I have been working on several projects and have taken some pictures butI am having internet issues and cannot get them to post at the moment so will have to keep working on that.

Amy is celebrating

Amy is celebrating using a 1000 sheets of paper to make cards.  Here is what she says:

".  . . I thought it would be fun to combine that celebration with another crazy milestone that I've been keeping track of and finally hit this past week... you see, since I started making cards and posting them here I've been keeping track of the number of different sheets of pattern paper that I cut into for my cards just to see how long it would take to get to 1000. I'm excited to say that it only took a couple weeks over my year anniversary to get there! I told you this was crazy! LOL!

Crazy or not though, I'm in the mood to celebrate (and clear out some paper) so I've got A THOUSAND 6x6 sheets of paper that I'm giving away! Wanna see what 1000 sheets of paper looks like? Take a look-see..."

She is giving away a lot of different prizes, including various stamps, so go here to see what else she is giving away and how to enter for your chance to win.
