Stampin' Up! Not

Note: This post has been updated as of 5/15/18 to include the inside of my card in which I added a stamped sentiment.

Today I didn't bring a Paper Pumpkin kit to the horsepistol because I thought discharge would be around 9 or 10. One doctor was in at 7 and said my husband was good to go but had to wait for the discharge doctor. Prior days, that doctor showed up at 9. Today he showed up at 12:30. The nurse didn't get the papers written up until 2:30...annoying to say the least! We got out at 3 PM and had to pick up prescriptions, take care of neglected things around the house, and cook mother's day dinner. We enjoyed our lobsters, I'll tell you that! So, I didn't get to make a card. 

However, I want to show you another card we made at card group Thursday...it is not SU, but I LOVE it!



The paper is Graphic 45 and I just love it. The photo does not do the card justice. 

Here's the inside...

I used one of the sentiments from Floral Phrases. I believe it became available in 2016 and is currently available. After I made the inside this morning (5/15/18), I decided to enter it at Retro Rubber #86

I hope this is not considered back linking. If it is, would someone from Retro Rubber please let me know. I figured it falls within the time frame of the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be able to make a fresh card tomorrow using a new stamp set I received.

  5. Gorgeous card, Karen! I know what u mean about checking out of a hospital. It never happens till afternoon! We spent all day at the cancer center today , (thought it was a 3 hour day & was 7.), but I did take some stamped things that needed fussy cut so got a lot of that done. You inspired me so now have a small tote with stamping things ready. So glad your hubby is home. You are both in our prayers!

    1. Thank you, Patti. We have also spent more hours than anticipated at the cancer center. Where do you go, if you don't mind my asking? I am thrilled that I have inspired you.

If you leave a question, I will try to answer as soon as possible. However, you will need to leave an email address as this blog apparently does not notify you that I have replied. If anyone knows how to remedy that, I'd appreciate knowing!
