Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps weekly Sensational Sunday Blog Hop! The Design Team has created some gorgeous projects for your Inspiration. Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links. 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 be in a monthly drawing for a $20 Loves Rubberstamps Gift Voucher! We will draw the winner of the Voucher the 1st Sunday of each month! Remember, you have until 8:00 pm CST Saturday to leave your comments!

As I mentioned last week on our Sunday Post, this last month has been a rough one for our family. We have had to say good-bye to far too many relatives and friends in such a short time frame. You didn't really get to process the first loss before we were dealing with another.

We did have two little miracles that joined our family during this time that really gave some much needed rays of sunshine during the rough times.

This cutie is our little niece... Audessey Isabella who was born prematurely at only 32 weeks on Feb. 20th. She weighed 2 lbs 8 ozs when she was born. These pictures are from a few days ago and she is now up to 2 lbs 15 oz and doing well!

Then at 4:35 yesterday morning I received a call from my sister while I was at work and my niece Trista was having her baby also. She went into premature labor initially last Saturday, they got it stopped and sent her home. On Wednesday she was having contractions 2 - 3 minutes apart and they were able to slow it down for the last few days but couldn't stop it any longer. So I made it to the hospital with 40 minutes to spare to help welcome our newest addition - Zaena Riley who was born at 31 1/2 weeks and weighs 3 lbs 6 oz. She came out breathing on her own and is doing awesome :) 

Now we have one more known hurdle coming, on Wednesday my cousin will be admitted to the hospital for a lung biopsy and if it is cancer they are removing half of her right lung immediately because the mass she has is fast growing. Hopefully things will go as well as they can, given the circumstances.

With everything being so crazy this week, I didn't realize I didn't get my post listed for Tuesday so I will share my project with you for Sunday's Inspiration. 

This is a card I created for this week's Crafty Sentiments Designs - Spots & Dots challenge and the Loves Rubberstamps Anything Goes Challenge. I used the Nurse Primrose rubber stamp from Crafty Sentiments Designs. This is one that I will be adding to the store once I get a chance to get more new things listed.

With Zaena arriving safely and having a few days off before Wednesday, I am planning to first get caught up on shipping and emails, and then will start adding loads more new things in the store this week.

We appreciate all the patience and support over the last month...we are finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel....let's hope it keeps getting brighter!

Now let's hop along and see what the Design Team ladies have in store for you...
