Are you tired of seeing me yet?

Wow, this has been a creative 24 hours for me. I worked on a few projects last night and quite a few today, too. Some of them, I can't post yet because they are either for a DT project or for an upcoming event for someone who reads my blog. Essentially, I'm saying that those things will show up later, so I will be back again to bug you at a later date. As of right now, though, I think this is post number four in the last 24 hours. I lost count. I'm not bragging, I promise. I'm more sitting over here in wonder that I actually got so much done. It doesn't happen as often as I'd like.

Today, I had a stellar mail day. Only one bill, and it isn't a hefty one. Plus, I got my order from Anita Be Stampin' today. I was pleasantly surprised, because I just placed the order on Wednesday afternoon (or was it Thursday morning?). Wowza. That's some awesome customer service. Anita is super sweet and friendly. She was so helpful when I had some questions, and as I have already said, she was super speedy with shipping.

I needed a card for my mother-in-law. She's having knee replacement surgery on March 2nd. I wanted to get the card made long before then, so it was one less thing to worry about. I used one of the new releases over at ABS. Check it out:
I know it has the look of a Valentine's Day or love card, but I promise, it's not. I'm going to put a note inside to encourage her to heal quickly and to let her know that I am thinking of her. I knew she'd think the bear and all of the hearts were cute, so that's why I went with all of that stuff. Besides, she'd be right. This little bear really is too cute. I'm thinking I need to color him up in blue, yellow, or pink for a baby shower. Too bad my cousin's baby shower was last weekend. Hey, wait! The kid's not here yet....perhaps, I need to do a "welcome, baby!" card...hmmm.....

Wait, I am digressing once again. The design of this card came from the sketch this week over at Anita Be Stampin'. Go check it out. You can win a $15 shopping spree to her store. Totally worth it!
