Surgery and Rainbows

Well for the first time since I was five years old I had surgery(on May 16th). I came home the same day and have been laying around since. It is not that much fun to have to lay around.
We had a bad storm a couple of days ago and this fabulous rainbow afterwards. After the tornadoes that swept through here a couple of weeks ago I am glad to be reminded of God's protection and how little our damage was compared to others in the county.

In crafting news here is my Mother's day card for my Mom, a get well card and a card for my daughter. I haven't made anything since the surgery but hope to get back to work soon. Vacation bible school has sneaked up on me again and I am getting ready for the big push and panic before it starts.
Hope everyone has a great week!

Secret Garden Tag Swap

I visited my daughter in Central North Carolina for 3 days this week. I had a great time. I got to visit 2 different Mighty Dollar Stores where they have all different kinds of clear stamps and scrapbook embellishments that are only $1. I got about 5 stamp sets. a lot of sets of Jolee's dimensional stickers and lots of glitter glue all at $1 each. I love a good bargain!!
Monday I finally got my tags mailed for the Secret Garden Swap. I never asked if it was supposed to be about the book or just any secret garden so I went with the book because it has always been one of my favorites. Here are my tags. I love tags swaps and always promised myself that when I get them I will display them by hanging a long ribbon and clothes pin each one to it like a garland. This time I am really going to do that. Hope everyone has a great week!
