Thanks for giving a hoot!

Hey friends. I hope you are having a great week so far. It has been a long and frustrating one for me, but hopefully it will get better. Spanish and I are not getting along. It is the most difficult class I have ever taken. I study and study and I just can't wrap my brain around it. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my grades so it me that I can't "get it". To add to the frustration my oldest daughter has been having problems with her head hurting so the doctor referred  her to get a CT scan last Wednesday. We made her appointment only to find out that the insurance company required prior approval and needed more information from the referring doctor. The diagnostic center kept making her new appointments hoping to have approval each time. The referring doctor was not returning their calls so yesterday I called and threw around some of the words I have learned from going to school and got a return phone call with approval within an hour. Looks like school is already paying off. lol Anywho we finally got her in for the CT scan today. We do not have the results yet so please keep her in your thoughts/prayers. Her grandmother just passed away on January 21 due to lung cancer that had spread to her brain and bleed out and her stepsister recently found out she has a brain tumor so she is really nervous. Ok well enough of that let's get to something fun. :o)

For my card today I used this adorable owl and sentiment from Unity Stamp Co. Stamped with Tuxedo Black ink from Memento. I added some Inky Impressions pearls, ribbon from MFT, a flower from Whimsy Stamps, and a birdcage die from Cherry Lynn Designs. DP is from K&Company.


I am submitting this to the following challenges:
Divas by Design: winged things
Loves Rubber Stamps: anything goes
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
The Squirrel & the Fox: something new (stamp)
Allsorts: let's get cute
Friends with Flair at Unity

Thank you all so much for stopping by. I appreciate your continued support.
