I'll take February if it's still avaliable?? If not, then I'll take April. I loved this when I did it before.

Thank you friends for understanding. This is the scariest time of my life right now. I'm still in the numb stage yet and trying to figure out what is the best plan of action, to help prevent my death, or at least postpone it.

Dear Friends, I'm so sorry to say this once again, but I am unable to make my ATC's. As I write this, I have tears running down my face from shame and embarrassment again. But when I sit down to design, I freeze up totally. 


You see, about 2 weeks I got some life-changing health news. My health has taken a serious turn for the worst and if I'm lucky,  and they can figure out how to help me with this, I may have a year at the most to live, if even that. The hardest thing I had to do last week was call my 4 grown kids and tell them this news. Most of them I haven't seen in almost 2 years now.  I'm terrified, scared and feeling helpless right now. I'm numb right now. I'm trying to stay positive, business as usual, keep taking one step at a time, etc. But it's so very hard, I can't say it isn't. Especially with the extra amount of severe pain I'm in constantly and the tremendous stress I'm under.  And it's not really working trying that way.. I pray and pray to God.  


I love scrapbooking, card making, designing etc. I bought a special collection, just for these ATC  cards, (that I'll never have a use for after this) (hoping to get my mind off of the seriousness and to have some pretties to be looking forward to showing up in my mailbox) all the embellishments, ribbons and other goodies   and knew what I was making but after the diagnose, all I can do is sit at the computer and cry. I can't even remember what my plans were.....I'm froze and numb.


I truly hate letting you all down, but I can't function right now. Each day I wake up now, I thank God that I did wake up.


If any of you know me on FB, please do not post this on there as only a few who know about it. I'm not ready to tell others till I know more.


So for my prayer-believing friends, if you could, say some prayers on my behalf please.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Again, please forgive me

Maybe we should all switch to padded envelopes then. (Easy for me to say when i don't have to pay the shipping, right?). January's swap had a lot of thicker cards than usual as well. I'd hate to see these beauties destroyed in the mail!

Count me in on the padded envelope. I'd rather pay alittle more than see these cards ruined with all the hard work put into them!


Question....if we use the padded envelope, we don't send the cards in those plastic card holders do we? I haven't done this is a while so not sure how it's been done now.
