"Die"ing for Fall

As you know, I am soooo partial to Autumn! 

Last week was a bit of a bomb! I ended up in the Hospital AGAIN......grrrr!

Since I had my stents put in at the end of April, I had been back to the Hosptial twice with chest pains. I had similar symptoms to what I was experiencing when I had my heart attack. Sadly, my symptoms aren't typical in that my Blood Pressure is find, my heart function great and in all three visits over the past few months, even the bloodwork was good.

SO this is my testimony to you to PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BODY!

I was having symptoms again all weekend. Finally on Tuesday, I asked my Mom to drop me at the Hospital. Again, there didn't appear to be anything showing as wrong. Fortunately, the Cardiologist that came down to see me, was AMAZING! He said that since I've been back three times, he wanted to repeat an Angiogram to ensure that nothing more was going on. Sure enough, there was an additional blockage that needed repair and so I have another little piece of metal in my Heart! 

I am hopeful that this in the onset to my recovery! 

Next week, I'm teaching this card in my all occasion Card Class!

I came home from the hospital to a lovely box of the fall winter dies and had to get right into them!

For this card, I used the following dies:

I created a background by sponging ink onto white cardstock

I also added some dimension to the leaves and basket with some sponging as well!

Keep your eyes peeled, I'll be back soon with some Die Shares!

Happy Stamping!



  1. Wow, I am glad they listened to you this time and did that extra test! Wishing you a speedy recovery and as much time to rest as possible. Your fall card is wonderful! I love the rake propped up against the tree and the fallen leaves. Thanks for sharing.
