Today I went to the doctor, I’ve been having a little discomfort under my rib cage for the past three months, nothing really painful… just enough to know that something isn’t right. The doctor suspects that it’s my gall bladder and he scheduled me for an abdominal sonogram to have my gall bladder, pancreas, liver, both kidney’s and spleen checked before he runs other tests. The crazy thing is I think I had my gall bladder removed about 16 years ago when I had my appendix removed… I’ll have to call my mom and ask her because moms remember everything about their children. Maybe they removed something else instead of my gall bladder LOL. My grandma, mom and sister all had gall bladder problems and had theirs removed. The doc was a little disappointment that he couldn’t check my records, they started keeping the latest appointments/information on computer and today my paper records were MIA (ugh), I’m sure they’ll turn up!

Enough about my gall bladder (wink)… I made another Helping Hand card using the same layout as the first. I really like the Helping Hand card that I posted yesterday… this one is okay, but it’s not my favorite. For this card I inked up Dots & Daisies background stamp with CTMH’s White Daisy Ink, it’s very similar to SU’s Craft but a much more vibrant white. The White Daisy takes awhile to dry and I’m extremely impatience… so I dumped White Diamond Embossing Powder over it! Thanks for reading

  1. Sending you good thoughts Jovi!
    It seems that gall bladder problems are the really common right now. Several of the girls I work with and my bff's cousin are battling with it right now.
    Maybe it'll be something as simple as a pulled muscle ;)

  2. I love both cards Jovi! I want to let you know that I look at your blog almost daily, I started ordering stamps from HM stamps, thanks to you I found some great stamps there thanks for posting their website. I hope you get to feeling better... Also... one question? I went to and made me a signature however, I want my signature posted on my cards like you do on your blog how do you get it on there? I am having a horrible time - I have my own blog it is you can leave me a comment there if you like about this... have a great day!
