Clear Dollar Product Parade (plus tidbits)

Dear friends,

Before I get to the crafty part of this post, I will share my physical update.  I continue to feel much better after my overnight stay at the hospital.  Water indeed does a body good, but only when it stays down.  It was clear that I needed IV fluids versus just trying to hydrate myself.  I also have a very nice glossy picture of my stomach tumor... I'll share I promise.

I met a wonderful young lady who was my hospital roomy for the evening and it was so nice to have to have a "fun" and "youthful" companion even though she was in post surgical pain.

I want to eventually fill you in on my acupuncture journey thus far, I've visited my acupuncturist 3 times now and will continue at this point.

I've made an appointment to visit with a naturopath who only deals with cancer patients and I'm looking forward to how that might help me along this journey.

I still have my motorcycle endorsement class to take (and pass) in just 2 weekends and I will eventually share a picture of a little surprise that Kevin "picked" up for me.

And finally, we are in Seattle right now enjoying a couple of days kid free.  He and his friend are off test riding some motorcycles for fun and I'm just relaxing here in the hotel.  I happy as a clam with my quiet and internet... what else does a girl need?

************************************************

And now, for my crafty post.  As you know I'm a big fan of Clear Dollar Stamps and it's owner Lori McCroskey.  She is a friend for life to me and she continues to send me new releases, but doesn't hold me accountable for them... she call's them my therapy which they are, BUT... I did make samples with them and they are finally available to purchase NOW.  The rest of the team has been "parading" them for you, but I have been lax but want to share with you what I created with them as well.  Head on over to take a look around because there are lots and lots of cute images for you, plus all sorts of fun dies and accessories to go along with them.

Here they are, the ovals coordinate with a new die set called Elegant Accent Dies.  You know, dies are all the rage... LOVE them all!


This card uses the new die and an a previously released die and stamp set.  You know new and old friends do get along.




I did a lot of combining of new stamps and dies so there is a lot to see!
Here are just a couple more for now and I'll share a few more tomorrow.  Aren't these the cutest and festive images?




Okie Dokie... all done for now!  Thank you all for visiting and go and enjoy the weekend!

Until next time.
-Katie

Wow Katie, you have been busy with the cards! Trying to choose my favorite and it is tough. The black and white Happy Birthday card (#2) keeps standing out in my mind so that must be my favorite. Hang in there Katie.

acupuncture is the way to go. I had a nerve injury to my hand years ago and it was the ONLY thing that gave me pain relief!
