Update on my Mom

Mom will be having a 5 bypass in the morning.  (Sunday the 26th).  She has 5 almost completely blocked arteries.  I am sure she will feel so much better once its all over.  Almost good as new.  We just have to get through the next 8 weeks or so.  Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

If you have a minute

Please if you can think good thoughts right now.  My mom is in the ICU right now... They are looking at Congestive Heart Failure... it sounds worse I think than it is.  I mean its not great but I think she can function well for a while with meds and stuff but things are really scary right now.  My mom means the world to me.  She is also the person who teaches and takes care of my son while I work and go to school.  Paul is so very close to his grandma.  Thank you to all my friends and family.  We will get through this.

A couple of new cards and my Utes.

Well The University of Utah played Colorado State today.  Colorado State took a sound beating from us.  It was a great game.  We play New Mexico next.  The U of U is now 8-0.  Wooohooo congrats to our players. 


Here are a couple of cards I made in the last little while. 



Not really sure how I like this one yet or not.  I used Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, & Pumpkin Pie card stock.  The stamps were by Hero Arts.  I used direct to paper inking on the images with Elegant Eggplant ink from Stampin up.  The witches hat is stamped in Elegant Eggplant, The cat and the bats are stamped with Black ink from Pallette Noir, and the pumpkin is stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink from Stampin Up.  The base is kraft CS from stampin up. 



This card I made a while back.  The card stock is pumpkin pie, always artichoke, and Elegant Eggplant.  The stamps are a set by Stampin up.  I am not sure of the name as I made this at a friends house.  I like how this one turned out and my try to duplicate it again. 

I got the nicest package from my secret sister (I am participating in a secret sister program on I got 2 sets of clear stamps from Studio G.  The first set has a scarecrow and 4 different sayings, and the second has 2 leaves, a pumpkin, an acorn and a saying (Fall is in the air).  I got a small bottle of aleene's tacky glue (love it), a 2009 planner, a set of bookmarks, some mini clothes pins, and a couple of tassels.  I also got a CB embossing folder, and a notebook.  It was the nicest package.  Really brightened my day.


Well I better get back to the books now.

Go Utes... & Body World 3

Today Paul and I ventured out to Salt Lake and attended Bodyworld 3.  The bodyworld was very very interesting.  Its amazing the human body.  They had each and every piece there for sure.  It took us about 1 1/2 hours to get through the whole thing.  They preserve the bodies through a process called plastication.  Its really very amazing.   Paul handled it very well and we really enjoyed our selves.


And how about those Utes.  Our running Utes scored 40 - 7 today against Wyoming.  We are now 7 and 0.  Woohooo keep it up Utes. 


Well I need to get back and watch tv with Paul.  I am off school this week and it feels wonderful.
