Things are going pretty good and I'm again very happy to be able to skip a chemo treatment, but of course something has to occur right? Nothing overwhelming, but this afternoon I noticed quite a bit of swelling in my ankles and hands. My hands have been relatively stiff the last few days, but I attributed that to the extra stamping that I have done the past several days, but now who knows. The swelling reminds me of when I was pregnant... you know where you could touch your ankles and it would leave an indentation. I just hope it goes away soon. I haven't ever noticed swelling like this before. My Doctor said that one of the chemo drugs (Taxotere) is known for this type of side effect, but like I said, I haven't noticed it up until now. Just add it to my list I guess.
As I mentioned above, I've been crafting it up the last several days. Most I can't show yet, but I did create a card for a challenge blog. Today's card uses a couple of new release stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. I decided to follow a sketch and well, you know how it is... a link from a link to another link etc. landed me at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This is my first time playing along with this Sketch Blog and we all know that a) it's fun to play and b) sketches are a wonderful way to wet those creative juices.

Plus, here is some blog candy up for grabs. I love ribbon, who doesn't right? One of my favorite ribbon companies is May Arts, so here is what is up for grabs:
I've got 4 groups of ribbon so I will randomly draw 4 people. Whoever contacts me first can choose from the 2 different groupings.
Group 1 (x2) Assortment of 1 yard each silk ribbon
Group 2 (x2) Assortment of 1 yard each variety ribbon
Rules are loose here... just leave me a comment and that is it! I'll ship anywhere so make sure you put your hat in. Now, I don't know when I'll do my random draw, but I will draw sooner than later!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Until next time...
