Ways To Use It Challenge 322

Hello & Happy Friday!

It's been a week since i've been on my blog. I tried last night to update it but Blogger was down so it was a no go. Alot of things have been going on and my heart wasn't into any stamping. Sunday was Mother's Day. I had a wonderful day! Hubby & Kelsey took me out to see some sights here in Missouri. We visited George Washington Carver Park and then went to Prairie State Park to see the buffalo & elk roam freely. It was very hot & humid here that day and I had a great time exploring until we ran across a snake at the one park. I'm deathly afraid of snakes and that did me in! That same day my oldest daughter back in PA was admitted to the hospital with severe pains in her stomach. Turns out she was pregnant in her fallopian tube and her tube burst. Her doctor told her she had never seen a case as bad as hers and she was lucky to still be alive. She had 2 blood transfusions trying to get her hemoglobin levels back up but doing better now. She was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday night and thankful to be home but for me being her mom it was hard being 1200 miles away and just getting updates thru text messages. Stinks being this far away!! Then Monday was hubby's birthday! We took him out to the Olive Garden for supper but the very next day he woke up with kidney stone pain. I thought "here we go again"! If only he'd give up that darn Turkey Hill ice tea and I thought moving would solve that problem but wouldn't you know it, he found a store here in Joplin that sells Turkey Hill ice tea!!! Errrrr! 3 days at home and he passed it! I tell's been one of those weeks!!

Anyways, I sat down and stamped yesterday since I knew everything was calming down. The Ways To Use It Challenge was to use trees. I don't think I have any tree stamps anymore so I found this Lovely As A Tree image in my Image Box so this is what I went with. It's always good to have some masculine cards on hand! :)

Wow, Wendy, your week has been too a less than desirable way! Hope your DH and DD are both feeling fine by now. This is a great masculine card...something I need to work harder on making. I just prefer to use flowers - lol!
