SFYTT - May All Your Wishes Come True

Well, I got the 4th challenge card done for February...just in time, seeing as how the cut off is tomorrow.  Nothing like cutting it close, eh?  lol  :)

Here's the sketch that I followed by Jen del Muro of i{heart}2stamp:

I've had fun playing with these sketches for a little bit while I've been able to.   Crafting is such great therapy for me and I seem to go to my happy place when I'm in my studio.  I'm still in a horrific amount of pain, but I do have times when the pain isn't quite so bad, so that's good.  It just depends on how the nerves are being affected, I guess.   I still haven't got a straight answer about what's going on with me.   But, I went in last week and had a bunch of bloodwork done, so those results should be back shortly, so we'll see what those results bring.  I need to go back to the hospital tomorrow afternoon to have an EKG as they want to rule out that it's not my heart that's causing the problems.   I can type at the moment, but my writing is getting atrocious!  I just don't have any strength in my hands and have lost a lot of mobility in my hands and am still have paralysis from time to time.  It's pretty bad, as I can't cut my own meat anymore, or even break open a  banana to peel it!   I feel so pathetic!   I was in bed today until 3 pm with a headache so bad that I couldn't get out of bed.  Luckily, Jim was able to stay home today to take care of our youngest daughter, who's also home sick with a cold and fever.  Not much fun here around the Mutch household lately!  I just want to get back to work and get back to normal routine!  Ok, I don't mean to bellyache...just wanted to give a quick update on me for those of you who have been asking.  Thanks for thinking of me!

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

I love this card! Great color combo!

Wow, Julie! I can't believe they have not been able to do more for you. I sure hope they get their butts in gear and figure this out. I so wish we lived closer together so I could help you out...but know I am thinking of you and sending off some good 'vibes'.

Take care,
Tracy :0)

julie, although I'm a few provinces over, if you need anything at all, let me know. Whether that is an ear to listen, a shoulder, someone to scream at, or someone to send you a smile in the mail. I'm here.

Huge gentle hugs

Hey there Girl, you have been busy! All the cards you have been posting are just beautiful! I am happy that you are feeling a bit like crafting, but sad that things aren't moving faster with the doctors. I hope to get over to see you this weekend...maybe I can kidnap you for a while again? lol
Big hugs!
