I switched gears from making Halloween cards to cards with an Autumn theme. I was going for a generically autumn feel rather than Thanksgiving-y, but I think the "Thankful Thoughts of You" sentiment could be taken either way.
This last card is a little bit different. I splurged and got some Sizzlets dies, one of which is the Flower Blossom. The only stamping on the card is the sentiment; everything else was done with punches or the Big Shot.
Supplies Used Today:

Personal stuff... (feel free to skip):
Today is the first day I've had in weeks all to myself -- no nurse, no aide, no visitors, no pressing personal business -- just peace and quiet and quality time with my stamps.
And then the phone rang. It was my case manager from my mental health agency, and she dropped a big bomb on me. Because I don't qualify for Medicaid and have only Medicare, I'm being dropped as a client due to budget cuts. In addition to losing both my case managers, this could result in me losing my Section 8 housing, my psychiatrist and access to my psych meds, and ... well, let's just say it gets real messy. I've been bawling my eyes out for an hour. I know it's fear that's taking hold, but at times like this it is really hard to trust the Universe and believe that I will have what I need.
Guess I will simply wait and see what happens, as there is nothing I can do today, right now. It's all out of my hands. And, worst case scenario, I've been homeless before and survived, so while what happens next may be inconvenient, it is not life-threatening.
I guess I better get in all the stamping I can before "things" start to happen... you know, enjoy my blessings while I have them.
