I've been fighting a cold all week. Coughing, sniffles and sore throat, the whole cold thing. I am so tired but can't lay down because it makes me cough more. Yesterday it settled in my left ear so I have a doctors appointment today. We also just heard that our doctor of 27 years is retiring. That is the second doctor we have retired! Makes us sound so old. I'm so sorry to see him go. He is the most compassionate, caring man and takes all the time you need when you are with him. Also, you can always get in the same day you call and never have to wait in the waiting room. I told him one time there was no sense having magazines in the waiting room because I never got to completely read an article. But he is really busy with patients. I hope the office gals stay with the new crew as they are terrific too. We are lucky as I have heard horror stories of doctors. Anyway, I'm sharing a card  today that I sent as a thank you for blog candy I won with http://carolinacardsbymaryh.blogspot.com/. This stamp was one of the things she sent and this was my first time coloring with Spectrum Noir markers. The points are very stiff but I like that the colors in a package all blend together. I haven't been making any new cards this week due to feeling so lousy so I hope to get busy next week. Tomorrow is the Heirloom show here and I really want to go. It is suppose to warm up so it should be a nicer day to be out.  Be kind to one another.

  1. Oh Brenda, I hate that you are struggling with a cold! My son is too, he called from college wanting to know what he should take. I think he might have more than a cold, but we will see when he gets home tonight. Spring break for him, so will be good to have him home for a week. Your card is just stunning Brenda! I can't believe this is your first time coloring with the SN's!! I think you have found your calling. You need to get some more of them and start coloring girlfriend! Then you can teach me. lol I hope you can get out to the stamp show, it is always fun. I've only been once, but I loved it and hope to go again sometime. Feel better my friend. Hugs, Brenda
