Sensational Sunday Inspirations + Blog Candy

Hi Stampers!

Sorry for being late today! We have had a crazy few days around here ;(  We found out Thursday that Grandma's cancer may have started in her right leg - in the femur area because she has been having a lot of pain where she can not walk on it. They rushed tests on Friday to check her leg and brain. Her brain was clear but there was an abnormality in her leg. She has to go Monday for more scans so they can see if it is a fracture or if it is the cancer. Fingers crossed she just broke her leg!

Then this weekend has been the annual Veisha Weekend festivities so work was insane all weekend!! Great thing it is still Winter here because I think we would have had a riot Friday night (had 2 cars flipped at bar close and arrested 23 people) if the weather was warm and then last night had to life flight two college kids for falling and striking their heads so hard they had brain bleeds. Crazy stuff!!

So I have not had a chance to do anything besides worry, work and sleep! I am glad the weekend is over and life can get back to a little more normal. Now just hoping Grandma's tests come back ok! I think I have rambled on enough so onto the fun stuff!

Before we get to today's hop... we have to announce last week's candy winner!

This week the Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot was on Ivonne's Blog!

One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $10 Loves Rubberstamps store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love for the Designers! You have until Saturday, April 27th, at 8pm CST. Have fun and we hope that you enjoy the hop!

The card I am sharing for the hop today is Ceal's Inspirational card that should have been posted on Thursday! With everything going on here I didn't get it up...but it is adorable and cute so I still wanted to share it! So I thought what better way then to kick off today's hop!

Isn't this CUTE? Plus since it is still Winter feeling here...(we had snow on Thursday!) this is perfect :) Ceal used the cutest snowman stamps from Paper Smooches called Swanky Snowdudes - which - I think the name is just as cute as the stamps :) She used Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Copic Sketch Markers. I think her background is so neat! LOVE it!

Be sure to swing by Ceal's Blog Post and leave her some love for this adorable project after you get done hopping around to see what the other design team ladies created this week!

Now I won't keep you any longer! Your next stop on the hop is the super talented...Dangina!  

Just in case you get lost along the way...  


Have a great day all! Thanks for hopping with us!

I am so very sorry to hear the news about your grandmother. know that I keep her in my prayers.... hope the tests prove that it's not cancer, but something very simply cured causing the troubles.

Ceal did a lovely job on the card. :)

I hope your Grandmother will be ok. I'm thinking of her. As Jennifer, says, I hope it isn't cancer and that it is something that can be sorted out quickly for her. I've become a follower. Take care. Wendy from FP xx
