Sassy Lil Sketches Last Sketch for December - DONE

How is everyone today? I am feeling perky this morning...amazing right?? ha
Last night I did this layout using a Sassylilsketches sketch for December. The last day to post is today so I need to get this written and go post! lol Nothing like waiting until the last minute.
They are switching things around over there and for some reason I couldn't figure out how to just copy the picture of the sketch I used so you get to see all the December sketches. The one I used is the one on the bottom left side.
I just love Cherie's sketches.
I used a paper kit, I received as a RAK from a challenge by Fia at Sketches4you, called Little Boy by Echo Park. It is such happy paper!! I know that sounds dorky but man it has really cheery patterns and colors. It just made me feel happy when I was using it. (yes, yes I know...I already said it....dorky)
I made the flower using my new Sizzix Vagabond that my mother got me for Christmas!! I'm still trying to figure out the Vagabond but I like how my flower turned out. I need someone with experience using dies and embossing folders to help me out!! Any volunteers??!! ha
And LOOK...I did what I said I was going to try to do....I made a card with the scraps while they were still on my desk. It is super simple card but I did it!! I still have a ton of scraps but lets not get crazy with the card making!! lol
I'm so happy to be home and getting back in my regular scrapping mode. I am going to try to get some extra things done and drafted for posting while I am down after my surgery. So I have been working frantically behind the scenes to get more and more stuff done.
Did I mention I will be having another surgery this month?? I am having the plumbing taken out! LOL (a hysterectomy). What can I just needs to be done. My husband says that after I have it I will become "sweet". (because I am not usually so sweet and my hormones will change me to the opposite!!) Isn't he sweet??!! (not! lol)
So my surgery will be on Friday, January 21st. Cross your fingers for me!

  4. Great layout! I have some of that paper, but I'm still hoarding it! I don't have the vagabond but I have a lot of Sizzix original and sizzlit dies from when I was still working relatively full-time! Best of luck with your surgery! I'll be thinking of you!

  5. Hi Stacy, love your lay out hun!! So cute with the little cards going round!! Are you dreading your op?? I just had two, to remove a growth in my uteris. My gynaecologist didn't want to do a hysterectomy. Unfortunately she didn't get all of it so when it starts giving me trouble again I might have to go in a third time. Anyway, I'll be thinking of you the 21st. Big hug, Frea

  6. Ehh, that's cars, not cards LOL!!

  7. Oooh, I love your flower you made!! I want to play with that next time I see you! Your layout of Riley rocks! Love the trains around his picture. I like all the bling you used on your card too. Very pretty :))

  8. great card with only scraps! Super cute lay-out! Prayers are with you for your surgery... My husband would say the same LOL!
