Bingo Thank You Card

Hi everyone. I'm back from CHA with my little family. I had a great time meeting all of you....Papertrey fans are the best! Thank you for all the kind words and little gifts. The month of August is going to be super duper busy for me so I just wanted to give you a head's up that my postings may be fewer this month. I have my August PTI box waiting for me and this month's release is going to be super spooky! I can't wait for you to see the new goodies. Also, on Wednesday I am going in for some surgery. I am having my gallbladder removed after having several months of of painful episodes and issues. Hopefully the recovery time will be minimal and I'll feel much better soon. Vacation comes after that for a week, then school shopping for the girls and school starts at the end of the month. So bear with me as this month will be a whirlwind of activities. September will bring a new routine and I'll be having lots of new Etsy items and fun posts. My Etsy shop shipping schedule is back on track now too. :) Stay tuned for fun stuff.

Today, I have another goody from this month's Papertrey release. This card was created with Dawn's new It's Official stamp set.
I combined lots of stamped elements to make some fun embellishments. Love that little bingo card with all the mixy matchy buttons.
Tiny Tag is from my Etsy shop....love them tied to ribbons.
Gotta run to some pre-op doctor's appointments and restock the pantry. Thanks again to everyone who traveled to see us at CHA. Welcome to all the new Papertrey customers and happy stampin'!

Wow, that is a schedule! Be sure to give yourself enough time to recover. Sometimes we push ourselves too soon and too hard and then take longer to recover.

Wonderful card Mish! You have got to be one of the most creative in the world!!!! I was quite disappointed that I could not go to CHA, as I sooo wanted to see the PTI booth as well as meet you in person!!!! All the best with your gallbladder surgery! Will be thinking of you!

It was so nice meeting you at CHA!!! I have had my gallbladder taken out too. The only bad part is the drive home because movement makes you feel sick. You'll be just fine!!!!!

This card is lovely. The soft colors 'speak' to me...and the little tag down at the bottom? What a fun touch! Best of luck with your surgery and making it through the rest of your crazy month!

Vicky Venturini said...

Love all of your creations!!! Your style really speaks to me, and I check your blog almost daily!Good luck with your surgery. Be sure to give yourself adequate time to recover - even after the pain is gone, you'll tire out easily for a while. It's a good excuse to play with paper! ;)

Wow hope you recover soon and without any complications. Relax and recover it is easier to heal than to over do.love your posts and will miss you this month

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. May you get spoiled rotten by friends and family. Following a series of surgeries in the last 2 yrs I found the best thing anyone could do for me was housework! A dear friend vacuumed and cleaned my home one day; another brought dinner for my family; another did laundry and yet another just came during the day to see if I needed company (I did!). Hubby was helpful, but often guys don't automatically SEE what you normally do and don't think to do it.

Don't forget those pain meds! It can really help to be sure to take them AS SCHEDULED and not try to rough it the first 2-3 days...Keep us posted when you feel better!

Wishing you a swift recovery! It's a crazy time of year for sure! We will be here in blogland so just take your time getting back :)I know I will look forward to the times that you do post.

Anna said...

Donna K said...

As usual a pretty card to share with us. You are such a busy girl I don't know how you keep up with yourself! Have a wonderful vacation with your family and I hope you heal quickly and painlessly from your surgery. Take care of yourself.

What a pleasure to meet you at CHA. What a trooper. Never would have guessed you weren't feeling well lately! Best of luck with the surgery.

Debbie Fisher (debbiedee) said...

Good luck with your surgery. I had my gall bladder out and definitely felt better!

Mary said...

Mish - I enjoyed creating with you at the Make and Take - I would have introduced myself, but you wouldn't have known who I was. Just glad I got to stamp alongside ya!

Good luck on the gallbladder surgery. If it is anything like mine was, it's pretty simple and recovery time is pretty quick. Just take it nice and easy and be pampered for awhile!

MaryBeth said...

My thoughts & prayers are with you for a speedy recovery. Give yourself plenty of time to heal and recover. You'll be missed but look forward to everything you've got planned!

Lynn said...

Hey there...I'll be thinking of you when you have your gall bladder surgery...had mine out 2 summers ago...crampy for a little while afterwards...but tons better than a gall bladder attack! thinking of you!

donna said...

Good luck wit the surgery on Wednesday. I am having some surgery on Thursday and I am starting to get nervous. Reading your post and the lovely comments of others has helped.

Sharon N. said...

Hi Mish - Good luck with your surgery. I had mine out last year and it was about 3 weeks before I felt really good again. I wish you a speedy recovery!!!! - Sharon

Margaret S. Romero said...

This card is beautiful. I really like the colors...nice and Spring-like. The ribbon is a nice touch. :o)

Lorraine said...

Lovely card! Hope your surgery goes well, your recovery is short...and that you find time to slow down & relax...LOL. Beautiful new profile pic, too. Take care!

Karen said...

Love the soft colors of this card. Wish I had been able to go to CHA. Keeping you in my prayers for a speedy recovery from your surgery.

Alice Wertz said...

this is so pretty! love all the details!

Connie Pruitt said...

Wishinbg you a speedy recovery. I had that done a few years ago. No incision and I was back to normal in just a couple days! Love your blog and all your cards.

Flor said...

I hope your surgery goes well...get lots of rest afterwards so that you recover completely! Can't wait to see you at CHA next year too!

Tracy said...

I wish you a gall bladder removal like mine in May! Easy Peasy! But do be sure to milk it a little and get hubby and daughters to wait on you a little!

Krissy said...

I will say a prayer for your comfort and speedy recovery. I had my gallbladder removed 11 years ago, and haven't missed it since. I can tell you that, for me, recovery was a breeze compared to the discomfort I experienced leading up to surgery. I don't know about yours, but mine just quit working (darn thing!) My surgery was on a Friday morning, and by Monday I felt like I could have gone back to work (I didn't, but I could have!)

Take care!

Laura Isham said...

Beautiful card. I envy the way you can layer and make everything look like it was born there, not put there. Good luck with the surgery. Will be thinking of you!

queenjolene99 said...

CHA was a blast! I really enjoyed meeting you, Dawn, Heather, and Debbie. It was great seeing Nichole again (I met her on the cruise almost 2 years ago). You all are SOOOOO AMAZING and an inspiration!
Good Luck with your surgery, I had my gallbladder out about 7 years ago...so worth it, I know how painful it was. Here is to a speedy recovery, I will be thinking of you ;)

Renee S. said...

Have an easy surgery and recovery. Don't forget to rest!

Deirdre said...

Prayers going to you for the surgery. Had mine out some years back and boy was I glad to say goodbye to the agony so how you kept up doing your cards and the blog is amazing. Take it easy afterwards and also don't even think you can bend down for anything, not even a little descent! It can take your system a while to get back to "normal" service so just go with the flow. Good luck, will be thinking of you.

Stamper for fun said...

Wishing you a speedy recovery because you have many things planned for August. I hope you have a little time to take it easy after the surgery.

Mish -It was so great to meet you, Dawn, Debbie and Heather at the Super Show! I want to wish you a speedy recovery-I had the same problem back in April and ended up having my gallbladder out. So many people told me it was a fast recovery, super easy so I was caught off guard when it ended up being more difficult and longer recovery than I thought. I only tell you this because like some other people on this post, it took a full 3 weeks for me to really feel like myself again. I feel awesome now and am so happy I had the surgery but I was not prepared for the difficult recovery. I do hope your surgery helps and you bounce right back, but don't overdo it! ♥ Remember you are having an organ removed (that's what my husband said when I complained that I thought I would feel better sooner!)

Lynn said...

Beautiful card, I love all of the pretty details! It was great meeting you in person at CHA, meeting you and shopping the PTI booth was such a treat.
Good luck with your gallbladder surgery and prayers going out to you for a speedy recovery.

PS can't wait for this months PTI spooky release!

Sue in Grapevine said...

Hope all goes well for you w/your surgery. Let your family take care of you & rest up to heal more quickly.

Kim G said...

It was so nice to meet you and the others at CHA!! The PTI booth was amazing! Wish you well with your gallbladder surgery!!

Lori V. said...

Hi Mish! It was wonderful to meet you at the Super Show. I am also having my gallbladder out tomorrow (Wednesday) and have also been suffering serious attacks. (I thought I was having a heart attack when I had the first one!) If I would have known you were going through the same thing, we could have compared notes at CHA! Hope your surgery goes well tomorrow!

Michie B said...

Good luck with the gallbladder. I agree with a couple of the other posts...even though you are feeling good, don't push yourself (although I can't see stamping causing much of an issue...just house work and stuff!!).

Cheers and thanks for another great card.

thank you kid said...
