Wow!  I haven't blogged forever it seems!  Life has taken me around and around and back again.  After a stressful year of becoming a Grandma for the fourth time but to a baby boy that was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, basically a half a heart.  After much worry and prayers we have been blessed with the best case scenario for this condition!  He is 10 months old now and full of piss and vinegar!  Standing at the foot of his bed after his second open heart surgery, when he was just 5 months old,  I received a phone call from the nursing home in which I had just placed my Mother 3 weeks prior.  They said she needed hospice so I rushed 1 1/2 hrs to her bedside only to lose her the next morning.  Needless to say I had lost my mojo!  But through time and prayers and then since Tim Holtz decided to teach CC 103 it got me up and running again!  And boy does it feel good! This was day 1 of classes and out of respect for Tim I cannot discuss the techniques but I can display my work! I decided to combine 2 of the techniques in my card below my tags.  I love how it turned out!  So FUN!   I look forward to class every day now!  If you haven't taken his classes before I highly recommend them!  CC 101, CC 102, and now CC 103!  Woo Hoo!  Thanks Tim for getting me out of my funk!
