I've noticed that I alway use up my generic cards first so I thought I'd make one for Sketch 4. This is a sketch that was used by Caardvarks back in the winter and I was really unhappy with how mine turned out. It was nice - albeit intimidating - to take another crack at it.
On this card I used a printable image of the tree and rainbow. They were previously available by Marieke Vermeulen Design and I have got so much use out of them. Here's the card:
When we refinanced our mortgage last week we were delighted to learn that our next mortgage payment isn't until October. This is HUGE as we can put the entire mortgage payment on other bills and pay them down much, much faster than we planned.
I also put together our emergency fund:
I really need to be literal right now and this insures our emergency cash isn't spent elsewhere.

Yesterday we visited the doctor and Avery has pink eye. Yuck. I always think of it as a little kid disease - and a gross one at that. He's had it for a week and none of us have caught it so all that hand washing must be working. I also heard really good things about the anesthesiologist who is taking over my case - what a blessing as I've been nervous about the whole thing. To be honest, I've been having nightmares about the pain clinic. I know it's not designed to cause pain but my experience with medical treatment is that they fix one thing and make something else horribly worse. One med I took solved a neurological problem but kills your liver - fast. I had to go to the fire station every other day to have my vitals checked. Uncool! I can only imagine what torturous plans the docs have for me this go around. (Now where did I leave my optimism? Must have been in my other pants. *snort*)
I'm rapidly approaching my 300th blog post and am thinking about sending a RAK out. Here's the rub though, I could really use a laugh so you need to tell me a joke in the comments. You get one entry for the joke and a 2nd entry for following my blog. I'll draw a winner on Monday.
The RAK will include:
