End of September

I can't believe it is the last day of September!  Boy, did it swoosh on by.  My Granddaughter had her corrective eye surgery today and it went very well.  It is so very scary thinking of a 3 lb premature baby (1lb 12 oz at birth)  that just got off the ventilator last week having to go back on the vent for eye surgery.  She came through this like a trooper as she has all her other issues and setbacks. She is already off the vent and back to her nasal cannula. She will be 9 weeks old on Friday!  Of course, since she was 15 weeks early, they still count her age in gestational weeks meaning she is at 34 weeks.  Her discharge will be around her 40th gestational week (ie. her original due date) as long as there are no other setbacks.  We don't even allow for that type of thinking now.  Her outlook is excellent and we sticking to it!

I have 2 cards today.  One is for my (other) Granddaughter's birthday in November... she will be 6 (going on 25) and the other is "Just Because" because you never know when you might need a card... well, just because.

Just a quick little note today.  I bought a Kodak Zi6 video recorder... yeah, some tutorials may be coming in the future.  The batteries are charging as I type and next I am off to install the software.  Give me some time, I promise you will see CARDS!
Here is another card from my stash...

Have a great day!

Of course there is a learning curve...

I never seem to get things right the first time.  I uploaded 5 pictures.  I saw it show 5 pictures in the upload window.  So, where are the 5 pictures?  I only see one.  Hmmmmm..

I'll just add one this time so I won't feel like a failure.

I love Halloween, don't you?

It's a brand new day!

I am blogging!  Oh my, I have finally decided to post my cards and share my thoughts.  I have enjoyed so many other's blogs that I think my time has come.  I hope to share a lot of ideas with you and encourage you to leave me comments and criticisms.  It's OK.  We never learn to get better if someone doesn't tell us we can be better.

I'll start with some of my cards currently in my collection, just waiting for the right occasion (except for sympathy cards, I never like that occasion).  I hope you enjoy them!

Besides working on cards, I hope to get better at taking pictures of them.  I have much to learn.
