Working again...

Hi there family, friends and followers. Just wanted to give you all a quick update.  I am back to work after my back surgery.  I found a 3 day a week LPN position.  It allows me time to craft and run my house so I am very excited and I am praying that it will work out.  I have spent the last 2 weeks in training, which will be ongoing because there is a lot to learn but so far it looks promising.  I am now going to Physical Therapy 2 times a week to hopefully get the pain in the back to calm down.  My surgeon believes it is nerve pain caused by my muscles spasming.  Either way it is not hurting to go and I am feeling a little better. 
Since I last updated my blog I won a grab bag giveaway from Northridge Publishing. The grab bag included tons of goodies and a Mini Cricut.  So I now own 3 bugs!!!  I have included a picture of the goodies that I won. Today I am going to share with you all the card I made for my darling sweet husband for Father's Day.  Neither of our sons live near us right now one is in Korea in the USAF and the other is currently living in Las Vegas so it was just the two of us.   I used my Create a Critter 2 cartridge for all the cuts and the paper was found in my stash.  I love easel cards. I will be entering the Exploring Cricut Challenge for this week.  I hope you like the card.  

 Well that's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web.  Please leave me a comment so I know you where here.

God Bless,
