Birthday Card Using Art By Miran Murali Whimsy Stamp and Cricut Artiste, Cricut Artistry Cartridges

Hello friends!  It is so nice to be back home again.  I was gone for a week to MO to see my mother; who was very ill.  She was in kidney failure, bleeding internally with severe anemia, low blood pressure, ventricular fibrillation (fast heart rate) and severe wound on one leg.  She chose to go back to the same nursing home; where she incurred all the problems.  She fell on Saturday and tore off the skin on her other leg; so now she is in severe pain.  I would appreciate continued prayer for Helen.  

I spent a week of constant running back and forth to the hospital.  I didn't realize how tiring it would be; until I got home.  I guess I just kept pushing myself forward on the excess adrenaline; and crashed when I got home.  The weather was cool and rainy at times.  I am back in Southern CA and it has been super hot, in the 90's.  I am still having trouble sleeping since I got home.  

It is time for another fabulous Art By Miran Anything Goes Facebook challenge; with the option of Music.  I used the new Art by Miran Whimsy Rubber Stamp "Murali".  I just love this sweet image; especially those awesome butterflies.

Get Well Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hello friends. How are you doing?  What is the weather like in your area?  We are starting to get into the upper 80's and 90's already.    We passed Spring this year; and went straight to summer.  LOL!

I created another card for my mother.  She is not doing very well in the nursing home.  They have caused her more medical problems than she had when she went in.  She was supposed to only be there 20 days for wound card; but has already been there 7 weeks.  I am flying out to see her; and hopefully I can figure out what she needs while I am there.

My granddaughter is due to deliver a baby boy sometime soon. She has been having contractions for a couple days.  I was hoping she would have the baby before I get there or while I am there.  I will have another great-grandson.  Hard to believe it!  I look so young.  LOL!  

This card is a beautiful purple in person; but pictures don't do it justice; that's for sure.  I love purple and yellow together; so I decided to add the doily in yellow on the inside.  I normally don't buy very many stamp sets that aren't CTMH; but I love HOTP stamp sets and papers.  This one caught my eye; so I had to have it.  I thought about coloring it; but decided not to.  LOL! I was trying to get it in the mail on Monday.
