My Guest Designers!

Before I show you my featured guests for today, a lot of you have been messaging me and asking me how my Mom is doing since the passing of my Dad a few weeks ago. Mom had suffered from exhaustion a few weeks before, having gone to the hospital by ambulance. This is something I did not tell my Dad as he was trying to recuperate in the hospital. I did not want to worry him. Each time my Dad ended up in the ER, he would always tell my Mom not to drive there. He worried about her. I was always there with him.

Not many know this but the morning that Dad passed, we all had to drive home from Maine Medical Center which was 4 hours away for Dave and I and 6 hours for my Mom and brother Rick. When they arrived at my Mom's, my brother ended up having to call the ambulance a short time later because my Mom began shaking uncontrollably and hyperventilating. I could not drive there to be with her because Dave and I had gone 48 hours without sleeping. The doctors there gave her IV fluids and some medication to calm her nerves plus something to help her sleep. She is still suffering from exhaustion and of course grieving on top of that. Thanks so much for asking. We are keeping a close watch on her. She has not wanted to leave her apartment but next week I plan on going to get her to come spend a week with us. The grieving process sure is hard on a person.


Look what showed up in my email yesterday. Isn't that the neatest? Rett from Stampin' Up! had to answer a question of mine and he did that plus sent me this anniversary wish! I work for the greatest company!

Two of my Downline are my featured guest designers for today's post. I had asked the girls to create something using products from our Sale-A-Bration Catalog and they both created the neatest cards.

The first card was created by my Downline Maggy Everett:

I love the way Maggy incorporate the Tasty Trucks stamp set along with the Any Occasion stamp set. Both of these stamp sets combined together make for the sweetest birthday card!

Jennifer Roshto is one of my newest Downline who has totally fallen in love with our Stampin' Up! products. The stamp set of choice here on this card is the Avant Garden set:

The In-Color Doily really makes the solo flower and sentiment pop over the stamped background layer. And the perfect touch was to add some Baker's Twine from one of our Paper Pumpkin kits.
