Enjoying the Weekend

I am enjoying the weekend, and hope that all of  you are enjoying it as well.  I had a bad kidney infection, and ended up in the Emergency Department the other day.  So, at this point, I'm just counting all my blessings, and realizing that being able to walk on my own and get around my house is a blessing.  It's funny how God will let us go through something difficult in order to get our attention, and to help us gain a new perspective on what is truly important and how many things we have in our lives to thank Him for that we far too often take for granted. I'm so grateful for so many things.  Being able to walk on my own is a blessing right now, and my heart goes out to those who cannot do this.  I am truly grateful for SO very much.



This card is certainly nothing special, but I am entering it in a couple of contests. It's my second entry for this week at Simon Says Stamp where the challenge is "Something New".  I'm using my new felties from KI Memories.

I appreciate having you stop by to say hello.  Please remember that if you become a follower or leave a comment, I will always do the same for you.  Have a very blessed weekend.

Blessings,

Karen

  6. Karen, I'm so sad to hear that you were in so much pain. I am thankful that you are feeling better. Your card is cute and different...I've never seen or heard of felties! They are something new to use on cards I imagine. Hope you feel back to normal soon. Hugs, Dawn
