That's right! The last couple of days I have felt like a person. I am 9 days out of my first chemo treatment and I am feeling good. I still have some nausea and some fatigue but hey......I feel good! My DH and I cleaned out (he is such a sweetie), did some shopping, went to see my granddaughter play softball, took a walk, grilled hamburgers and I even sat down and made a card. Right now life couldn't be better!!!!

I also went to Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's Friday before I went to my dr. appt. It sure helped inspire me some. Not to mention I spent way too much money. I did buy a packege of 3D stickers (which I never do) and made the card that is showing here. It was fun to mix my stamps with some sticker stuff. I so enjoyed doing it. I hope you enjoy seeing it. I did ink the 3D flower with my VersaMagic Ink pad to give it some color to match the cardstock. I also used my white gel pen to do some doodling. For the saying I curved my stamp a little bit to make it fit to the scalloped circle a little better. I got out my old Clickit and did the holes in the scallop.

I am hoping for a good week this week as I don't have any dr. appts. until Friday when I get my chemo again. I think I will start on my Seminar trades and see what I can get done.

I hope everyone has a great week! I am really going to try to post again soon!
