This is my youngest grandsons Halloween card. He is into the dark side right now! Again, I used "stuff" in my stash. It didn't make a dent in my Halloween stash at all, but I feel better using up things I already had to make these last few cards. This is My Minds Eye paper from 2012, a stamped spider from Lawn Fawn, the bat is Jolee's I think, the skull is unknown and the fright night is a sticker. The skull is covered with WOS. I can make Halloween cards for the next forty years by going to my stash! That is kind of sad that one would have so much unused stuff. But I am trying.

Update on hubby - Go Docs thinks he has an ingurinal hernia and that is what is causing him so much pain. They are going to send someone to the house to do an untra sound to determine if that's what it is. They haven't called to set up an appointment yet. I called 911 last Mon. because his leg was huge and hard and he was short of breath. Doc said that was because he missed his water pills for several days. He has been sleeping so much and just missed some and sometimes he refuses to take his meds. He would not go to the hospital so paramedics called Go Docs and they sent the doc out the next morning. So we are waiting for the ultra sound to see. He is no longer short of breath and some of the swelling has gone down. This disease causes patients to have a hard time swallowing and I think that is where we are now. He has three large pills that he is choking on. I am calling today to see if I can crush them for him. Each day seems to bring a new problem. We have reduced his halucination meds back to what they were to see if that is why he was sleeping so much but it hasn't made a difference in that. He is back to yelling at the tv, but no more punching. I just shut it off if he starts yelling.

I had my eye lasered Wed. and it is fine. I can actually see better now. I need to go take my shower and get the day started. Be kind to one another.

  1. Oh gosh Brenda you have so much to contend with right now. Makes my troubles seem like pin heads in an ocean. Love this card. I need to either de stash or use up the stuff I have got. Big hugs Mrs A.

  2. Oh my.....troubles with my husband seem little compared to what you are going through. Will they operate if the hernia is found? That could be harder, what with all the pain he will experience after, not a good time for both of you.

    I am glad to hear you can see better after the lasering of your eye. Doc told me I too would need that for my left eye, who knows, maybe the right one too.

    Know what you mean about all the "stuff" in your stash, I got lots too...need to use up. Fun card for your grandson, he'll like cause grandma made it for him.

  3. So glad the shortness of breath is gone & hope they do that ultrasound right away. What a battle between agitation & drowsiness. Hopefully all his meds can be given in applesauce or pudding or something that isn't a struggle for you. You're often in my thoughts, Brenda--wish I was closer & could give you a hug in person! Darling card--bet he will love it! I'm actually enjoying going through my old stuff & finding a lot of it I still really like & it's now "trendy"--haha! Easier sticking to my budget--just need to get rid of stuff I won't ever use so I can see the good stuff--haha!

  6. I'm glad to hear the eye problem got resolved, and your sight is better. Not so happy hearing all the other difficulties, and surely pray some things will get settled around, to make life more peaceful. It's a wonderful card, (I'm impressed you remembered the paper year!). You've used a combination of elements - put it all together - to create a perfectly delightful card. Our Darnell will be so proud of you for shopping your stash. (I am too!) TFS & Big hugs.
