Monday Montage #187

Hard truth, friends. We are still having a pandemic ... and my life is boring ... your life is boring ... everybody's life is BORING!! I don't have anything fun, exciting or NEW to tell you about my universe. Except maybe that my hubby and I have both had BOTH of our COVID-19 vaccinations now ... so I kinda feel like a super hero. Except I'm still not going anywhere super exciting or doing anything super exciting because we are still having a pandemic. So there's that. I could tell you about what I am watching on Netflix ... but you have all probably already watched it. So that's not very exciting, either. However ... my BFF Cheryl ordered WAY more than I did from the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up Catalog Preorder. And she came over to play (she has also been vaccinated). And I played with her toys. So I guess THAT is EXCITING!! And it's Monday Montage time ... and I guess THAT is exciting, too. So perhaps I have underestimated my life.

PANSIES!!! There are PANSIES in the new catalog. I freakin' LOOOOOOVE pansies!! I always have! We learned a sweet song in church when I was a little girl. I can't NOT think of it every single time I look at a pansy anywhere. It is called "Little Purple Pansies." I can't get it out of my head. I had a TON of fun playing with all the different color combinations trying to come up with just the right one. I ended up coming up with several. What do you think??? I also love the Basic Border Dies and Scalloped Contours Dies. Since the Stitched Shapes Dies are retiring (WAAAAAAAAHHH!) I am really going to enjoy having something else to use on every dang card!

I know you are all waiting on the edge of your seats for yet ANOTHER update on the very slow progress connected with the healing of my Achilles tendon. (Because this is a pandemic and we have NOTHING exciting to do, right??) It seems that I am actually making SOME progress!! I have gotten to a point where it isn't painful all the dang time all the dang day. And I have taken a few walks around the neighborhood and I didn't die ... and my foot didn't fall off, so I guess that is a good thing, right???

Wow, Wendy! This is definitely one of my favorite cards EVER!! Pansies are my favorite flower visually! We had them used, and the colors at our wedding! Bright purple and yellow every where! In fact, I only saw the red pansies just last week! I hadn't seen them before!

So, I am flipping out that there is a pansy stamp. Is the new catalog out yet? I love your layout and your combo of colors, too! The white borders and ric-rac shout "Spring!" to me, too! If you need someone to send this card to, I'd love to help you out! It's so pretty!

Praying your Achilles tendon is healing well! I still deal with my neck and back--every day, all day. I do not wish this on anyone, anywhere! I know you liked to be active. Are you supposed to be resting it? I hope you will be fully recovered quickly and completely!

He IS Able!
