JoAnn said...

I love that card and the way you stacked those dies! I have another one to buy now. Thanks for sharing. I love your work and your blog and I will be following after I leave this comment. As far as my New Years Res. I have a few so I'm leaving one on each blog until I run out. My next one is to loose a few pounds. I'm sure I'm. not alone on this one but I don't want it to get out of hand
When I was younger I would have never thought I'd have a weight problem but I got a rare disease and the only way to treat this was with steroids. They make you gain weight weather you eat or not. It made boils come up all over me. My mom said I looked like I had lepersy. If that is spelled right. There was only one other lady in the south east with this and she passed away from this illness. It affects your respiratory, eyes and others. I said all that to say this there is still no cure for this illness but I don't have it anymore because God healed me. So I know God will help me loose the weight I gained while taking the medication. God has been so good to me. I have never left a comment like this before but I felt this was the right time. God is Good!!!!!
