As some of you may know, I have been very ill for quite some time.
Without going into a lot of boring detail, I suffered from severe anxiety and weight loss from issues stemming from the sleep deprivation caused by Ambien.
Yes, you either increase your dosage (which I refused to do) or give in to the fact that while taking it, you will sleep shorter and shorter periods of time. I had hit bottom at two hours per night for several months. Take my word for it, sleep meds are not the answer.
But, I am thrilled to say that I am better now, close to my "fighting weight", and feeling like I can again join the rest of humanity in enjoying life!
Enough of that...
I made my first challenge card today in a very long time!
I have been exploring the stamp blogs as if I had never seen any of them before! Six months can leave one very mesmerized! But then, it now all seems new and fresh to me!
I saw this challenge for a "Silhouette" card on
First off, I LOVE the stamp images they offer, and second, I have none!
So, I grabbed what I DID have and made this sweet heat embossed card.
Thanks for coming back after my having abandoned my blog for so terribly long.
