Is it Monday??!!!

More about that later, but first a layout and some cards...

A layout I did last week, of my daughter at a few months old.  I've been loving all the layouts done with glimmer mist lately and figured I might as well use some of the many bottles in my stash.  Trying to use up some older paper too!

The chipboard needed something, so I used microbeads in the center of two flowers and an accordion flower(one edge punched out first with a border punch) in the center of the big flower.

It was my friend Heather's birthday last week so I made this card
and since I was in the card making mood and I have a lot of birthdays next month I made two more.  Usually I leave it to the last minute, so for once I hope to have a head start!

I love using the Bazzill embossed and scalloped 6 x 12 sheets for cards.  They make a great base for a card!  Hopefully I'll be able to work on more this week.

I had some fantastic news last Thursday, my pathology report came back and all the lymph nodes that were removed this last surgery were negative!!!  I never thought I would love hearing that word, "negative" so much!  I've been waiting to hear it since December, so I'm being positive about the negative!  
And then, starting Friday, things started on a little downturn.  Wouldn't you know it, maybe it was the shock of hearing good news for once.  I didn't feel great, almost like I was getting the flu or fighting off something.  By Saturday night, I was in the hospital emergency until 1:00am.  I have an infection from the surgery.  So in the past 48 hours I have been back to the hospital seven times for intravenous antibiotics.  The worst is having to be there at 6:30 a.m. for the first one of the day, especially the night we got home (because of the time change) at 2:00 a.m.  So, this weekend was a lost cause for me, I've been at the hospital or slept through most of it.  I find out tonight if I need to continue the i.v. therapy.  I am feeling better today, so hopefully not! 

Have a great week everyone!

Thrilled to hear the GOOD news! Speechless in regards to your weekend. No more of that kind of stuff needed.
I am envious of your glimmer...I can't find that kind of success with mine. I'll send good health vibes your way and you send good glimmer talent my way? :) hugs!

Your good news is awesome. I have been keeping my fingers crossed for you ever since Pat told me that you were expecting news last week. So sorry to hear about the setback - hopefully the antibiotics work their magic quickly. Thanks for sharing the gorgeous lo and the lovely cards. The recipients will be thrilled with your handiwork.

First off... I am super duper happy about the good news! It's too bad about the infection but I'm glad they caught it when they did!

You know I LOVE your layouts but my favorite ones are always the ones where you use pictures of your kids from years ago... I think people took pictures differently back then and I love the stories that the pictures tell!

Fabulous layout and Cass sure was a cutie!

Have a great week!

Hi Jan!
Wow, what a rough time for you. I hope all is well now and that you are feeling better.
Your pages and cards are amazing as always. When I sit in front of a half finished page contemplating what it needs I find myself thinking "what would Jan do?" lol. I want to channel some of your creative ability.
hugs and best wishes. Hope to see you soon!
