Challenge #157 - Use A Die-Cut

Hi Stampers -

I am sorry for the delay in getting the post up - Thank you to HOLLY for jumping on and updating with our main information. I had to take my computer in to be checked because it hasn't been running great since last week. It was doing a windows update and froze during it and windows would not load after that. I had to do a refresh on it which wiped all my programs and files from it and not is is super slow and freezes up on me so hopefully Best Buy will figure it out! Then I will have to reload all my programs and reinstall my printer and all that fun stuff!

I do want to give a quick update on where I am with shipping and emails - I am still a little behind in emails. I will be getting all pending winners codes sent today. If you are waiting for a winners code or have emailed for a DT fav pick code and you do mot get an email from me today - please send me another request. When my email gets full I can very well miss something. With shipping I have been trying to get packages shipped out daily. I did miss a few days due to my computer issues but will be back plugging away by this evening. I told my hubby to bring his computer home in case I need to use his if Best Buy won't have mine done. I will be very close to caught up by this weekend with shipping.

Grandma has been doing ok since coming home. I have to take her to a Dr. Appt at 3 when I get off work today for some platelets. She has 2 more transfusion appointments after today and that should be good for awhile. She has to go through this about once every 3 - 4 months. She has been sleepy with all the running back and forth to Dr. Appts and doing her strength exercises and stuff but she is hanging in there and doing as well as she can be with her health situation.

Thank you as always for the continued support, well wishes, thoughts, prayers and your patience! It means a lot to us!
