Happy Birthday Weymond!

Okay I know I will be shot for this one, but today is my BIL Weymond's birthday and I just had to make a card for him. I love you much and wish you another great year. Please don't shoot me for the photos but I have had them for a long, long, long time and not been able to use them and since you needed cheering up, I decided today was THE DAY! Hope you share many, many more with me! Many hugs and kisses come your way! Chat later, Luv, Mat
BTW the photos I have had for a long time and the background and lettering are from a freebie kit called MMDC Dad's September and the Cluster is from Raspberry Road-EK-Frontier Days Cluster 02. Thanx so much ladies for sharing your work with me.

Thanx For Your Generosity Award

I have created an award to present to all the marvelously talented ladies that share their beautiful kits with us scrappers. All the themed, colorful, seasonal, simple, elaborate embellishments and papers make scrapping so very easy and aid with my addiction. The wordart is simply superb and usually says exactly what I am thinking. Their big hearts and generosity mean a lot to me and I just want to thank all of them for making my digiscrapping experience a lot of fun. May all of you enjoy this simple but heartfelt award and have a creative scrap happy day! Luv ya'll, Mat

Yipee, no more sling

I got to come out of my arm sling....yipee freedom, but sure does make my arm sore. Can't believe it's been 6 weeks! I still cannot lift it on it's own, however, the new exercises hurt like the dickens, that putting behind the back and pulling the arm up with a towel SUCKS big time. But, I do feel a little better with typing now that I can use both hands freely. Makes it easier doing cooking and cleaning too! Just thought I'd drop a note to let y'all know how it's going.
Here's a qp page I downloaded and used "the girls" in. Will have to get back to you the designer...Juliette (I think). Anyhow, since they are my constant companions (MzKitty is helping me now) I take a lot of cute photos of them. Y'all have a great more next time. Luv, Mat

Forgetting, Not an Option

When I saw this wordart by Miss Linda, I knew I had to make a page using it. I will never forget where I was, what I was doing and how I felt as I watched the second plane hit the second tower. I, like so many others, stayed glued to the TV in total disbelief that anyone could hate our country so much that they could take so many innocent lives in this fashion. To this day, it is still hard to believe. I pray that we NEVER FORGET and always keep our guard up for further and future attacks from these enemies and that God continues to Bless America and all of us.

Happy Day to All

the "girls" and I wish all of you a Happy Day and a great short work week ahead. Just wanted to make a page to display some awesome gifts to me from Ms Gerri. Thanx so much Gerri, made my day and I feel somewhat better this morning. Off to therapy so this is short and sweet. The background is from Angelscrappers Painted Papers, the frame and bling are from Ms Gerri and of course, the "girls" are ours in photos taken in July. Have a great day! Chat later y'all, Luv, Mat

Thanx Ladies

I so want to thank all of the "sisters who were so generous while I was down from surgery. The prayers, blessings, wishes, get well pages, e-mails, mint juleps, jokes and help with house work, making beds, washing clothes and being my chauffer were all appreciated. So accept my thanks page I made for you using Angelscrappers Summer Breeze Kit, the wordart is a freebie from digi free by MDD. I love all of later! Have a terrific weekend. Luv, Mat

I'm Baaaaack!!

Whew!...what a surgery! Here it is a month tomorrow since my shoulder had 4 anchors and some "chains" screwed into it and I am finally able to type somewhat. It has been a painful process, but am doing better daily. I am still in a sling (limiting mobility of the use of the right arm) for another 2 weeks before the INTENSE therapy starts. I feel like it has already been the 4 months of imposed immobility...LOL! I finally attempted driving using the one arm this week when I drove to therapy myself...scary, but successful! Anyhow, I am receiving great care and assistance from friends and loved ones, especially the constant companionship of "the girls"!

Just wanted all to know I am still around, healing and improving daily. I thank all of you for your visits here, the encouraging words, prayers, love and hugs left each day, the healing juleps left for me and the ones Thelma drank to help me, the kind cards, pages and e-mails from all my "sisters" that have helped me immensely! I love all of you!

I have been working on these pages for over a week, kind of SLOOOOOW using my left hand to operate the mouse, etc. They may not be exactly what I wanted, but I just had to do something with Angelscrappers new Fall Splendor kit. This has taken all morning to do this post and I hope you enjoy the pages.

Thanx for the Bambi award ladies! i got this from Jax @ Lavendel Creations, Rose @ Wanchuchen, Judy @ Judy's Blog and Verony @ dusty hollow. I appreciate all of you for thinking of me. Chat later y'all,.....Luv, Mat MzKitty sits on the back of the couch watching me as I do some of my exercises or fighting Oreo for my lap.Everywhere I go, the bed, the computer, the couch....Oreo thinks she has to be in my lap soothing.Pumpkin just has to be in the room where I am and sits close but not in my lap as of yet, but will lay beside me on the bed if she can find a spot between the other two.
