A Little Stressed

Hey Everyone!


Well, I spent my night starting and stopping so many projects and cards....I just couldn't concentrate. I had planned on posting something today but I will confess to being just a little overwhelmed!


Why you ask? Well, today I am getting my 5 year scans. Many of you already know that I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in September of 2003. I had 6 long months of chemo (although compared to some, that's soooo short!) and then 1 month of radiation and have been so very blessed to be cancer free. I still get really nervous at scan time. Really nervous. I'm guessing that will always be the case.


Today I am going to share one that I love...an oldie but one of my favs....and then post some blog candy that I had intended to post later....I'll share more after the card....

This is one I shared back in July. It's using one of my most favorite Unity kits EVER!...Hey Chick. I LOVE this set! I also love the October Afternoon paper...LOVE October Afternoon!



Ok...so moving on to the blog candy. How about a little comment game? I guess it seemed perfect to post this today since I am needing a few kind words myself! :) What you need to do to be included in the drawing is to pick three blogs that are listed on my sidebar...anywhere on my sidebar and leave them a comment...if you want you can leave more than one! ;) How about this....For every three blogs you leave a comment on you can enter...so enter as often as you like! Fair?



What are you playing for? Besides bringing a smile to someones face? How's this.....

A Stampin Up...partially mounted...stamp set...Sidekick Sayings, Print Pattern paper pack...never opened...5 yards or ribbon, primas, and some glittery brads.

I hope you are all having a great day! I am off....I have to take a benadryl first...I'm allergic to the dye they inject me with....I will be a bit loopy for the rest of the morning! LOL...ok...when am I not slightly loopy! ;)

Hope you all have a wonderful day! I will keep you posted...although I don't see the dr. until the 25th so probably will not have results until then.

Post ya soon! :)

ETA: I was so stressed yesterday that I didn't even list a deadline for this one! Let's run it until Saturday...I will announce the winner on Sunday...that way you can leave lots of love! Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm happy the test is over and will try and not freak out waiting....but I will keep you posted once I hear something.

Have a great day! :)

scrappycandy said...

I certainly can feel what you are feeling. And then you have to wait and wait for the results. It never gets easier does it? But hang in there, because you inspire all of us. I took your challenge and then realized that I lost track of everyone where I left some love (lots of computer problems while navigating). But at least three. Treat yourself..you deserve it!

Michelle (mla1111) said...

Hi Jen. I will be thinking of you, my thoughts and prayers will be sent your way.
I commented on Jeanne, Jimmi & Maren's blogs.
