This morning I was up at 7:30, which is super early for me when we are not in school. Since I was up so early I decided to get some stamping done before I left for the doctor. When I saw the challenge on SCS I knew it would be perfect for a Father's Day card. It took me a few tried to get that shirt folded right. I practiced with copy paper. So, when I finally got it I folded up a few of them before I forgot how to do it. I used the word window punch to make the tie. I also trimed another word window punch and put it in to make it look like the tie is actually coming out from under the collar. I like the way it looked with this SU DP. I actually had some manly looking paper to do this with.
When I was going through marking my retired stamps I was so sad to see this one! I just love this stamp set and when I first got it I used it all the time! So I had to pull it out and make a card. I'm not thrilled with the outcome but it works. My friend and I are going to have a "retirement" party for all the SU stamps we are saying so long to. We are trying to pull together some samples using all the soon to be retired stamps we have. So I knew I would have to have a Best of Cluck card to contribute.
Well, for those of you who want to know the doctor's visit was very disappointing. He is stumped just like the other 5 doctors I have been to before him. After a 2 hour drive there and an hour and a half wait I just couldn't listen to another doctor tell me what he had to say. I could have quoted to him what he was going to say because I have heard it so many times.
"IBS? IBD? We can't find anything wrong. Even with a diagnosis this will never go away."
Obviously, I had a mini-meltdown after we left the office. My friend who went with me, Kelly, was so sweet. I know there wasn't much she could do while I was standing there crying, but she did let me know that she was there for me. I really appreciate her for that! I really am looking up information on the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. I am so upset right now that I could just wallow in self pity, but what would that acomplish? Nothing! Tomorrow is a new day and maybe I'll get to start the day by stamping some like today!
