Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

You have no idea how glad I am to be able to say that, so I'll keep it very brief. You see, I had a heart attack this past week and got the be-jaybers scared out of me! I do believe it's called a "WAKE UP CALL". The doctor was very happy with the way I responded to treatment  so my hospital stay was short. This week, tho, I go back for a consult on peripheral artery bypass surgery on both legs, so we'll see what happens next.  Okay, are we having fun yet?
I made this card a little while back, as soon as I saw these precious images on HouseMouse. I'm so glad I did because just looking at these precious meeses makes me feel better. I hope they do the same for you, and that everyone has a HAPPY and HEALTHY New Year!!!!!!!

Here's the inside.


  1. That's lovely Sue, thanks for the christmas wish! =)
    Hugs, Elenor

  2. Absolutely awesome. I love it, what a great card, wonderful, Hugs Cathy K

  3. Oh, really cute. I have lots of House Mouse stamps. What great ideas you have. Nice work. And you have a Merry Christmas also with a healthly New Year. I'm glad the doctor was able to help you. That is a wake up call and very scary.

  4. It is sooooo good to hear you sound so good Sue. I am thinking bout you all the time. I hope you let us know when you go in for surgery. Of course you cards are just as cute as can be. I love House Mouse stamps. It is so good to hear your cheery voice.
    With all my love!

  5. Sue, I thank God you are alright and will continue to pray for you.

    Yesterday I saw the image on the front of your card and told my Johnny Luv No. Now I want it. I have the inside image and I think the way you used is is super spiffy.

    Please, please take care of yourself. You are so precious to us.

  6. A beautiful card, Sue. Glad to hear you are on
    the mend. I can't imagine how scary it was for you and your family. I hope your Holidays are
    terrific and your New Year bright and healthy for you and your family.
