Hello, hello, hello!

Why hello there! How have you been? Hope you’re doing well!

Have you heard about the newly released Hero Arts-Sizzix dies and matching stamps? I finally got my hands on some and had to play, yay! I needed three cards to send so I whipped these up in a jiffy:

Here’s a closeup of the flower so that you can see it better!

The dies are open in the middle and that makes it super easy to line up. Just stamp first, position the die in place and run it through the machine. (Yep that’s really it!) A great way to make cards in a jiffy. Of course I couldn’t make the flowers all the same, had to color them differently! And, don’t you just love that font in “hello”? It’s a Hero Arts-Studio Calico set, can’t wait to play with it more.

And, I thought I’d share a little update on the knee — the last week has been truly awful. :( The doc switched me to a less intense pain medicine and I had a bad reaction to it — dizzy, trouble breathing, nausea — the works! And it didn’t help with the pain, either. Couldn’t do my PT, it was that bad. I got a different pain medicine yesterday and it’s so much better today — yay! Can’t wait until this is all over, I just know it will be worth it in the end. :)

Hugs and hope you’re doing well,

    Thinking of you and hope you’ve found the right medication to see you through to complete recovery. Blessings to you and keep thinking good thoughts.
    Modern medicine and technology are truly wonderful as we discovered recently when my husband had a heart attack. He had to have one of his medications modified but is doing well now and will start cardiac re-hab this coming week. Diet and exercise do not always prevent a heart attack when there is a genetic factor involved as we found out!
    Hang in there because it will get better!

  16. hi lisa!
    whoa—bad side effects with medication is scary! [i have an in-house pharmacist AKA hubby, if you ever have med Q’s]. hope your knee pain gets better.
    what a great idea for a card set gift!

  18. Gorgeous cards, Lisa! Love you design, colours and pretty embellishing! I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had such a bad time recently. Hopefully the new medication is working well and you’ll be properly back on your feet again soon. Happy WCMD to you:)
