Stampin’ Up! Last Day to Enter for Blog Candy and Happy Gotcha Day, Finn!

Good morning, y’all – happy Saturday! Now – usually, I’d give you a sneak peek of the card I am planning to make with you this evening.

Which would mean I’d need to HAVE a card to sneak peek.  But – here’s the thing.  I did something to my back yesterday morning.  No idea what.  Might just have been my parts realizing they’re 60?  I dunno.  I took a Flexeril and some Ibuprofen and then got in the only spot that didn’t hurt.  Bed.

I discovered that Flexeril has the ‘benefit” of making me sleep all day, is totally crafty-mojo-sucking….and does little-to-nothing for my back.

The whole thing ended up with me NOT making a card yesterday.  🙁

That said – I am ASSUMING that things will go as they have in the past and I’ll find the pain has subsided as quickly as it came on when I get moving today.  Which means that I WILL get a card made and I WILL be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page this evening at 7pm Eastern.

In the meantime..wanted to remind you that this is Happy 5th Gotcha Day for the Finn-man!!

  1. Yes, to many years with your boy. He is beautiful inside and out!! I enjoyed the photo montage.

    Well, bummer, Mary…so sorry you had such a day on Friday….and hoping today is better.
    That is a wonderful collection of Finn pictures….I’m sure you have hundreds of pictures, maybe thousands. Finn’s fans expect new pictures on a regular basis. I’m one of them!
    Crossing fingers for you to feel great today.

  3. Happy Gotcha Day, Finn. I loved seeing the camera reel. Sorry about your back. Flexeril did nothing for Gene except to put him to sleep. Hope things are better today…nothing worse than back pain…well, maybe a tooth ache! Hope to see you tonight.

      Thanks, Karen! Yeah – sleep is good. And it does seem to help me keep the REST of my back from spasming from “guarding” it! 🤷‍♀️

  4. Bummer on your back, hope that you’re feeling better today! Cute pictures! Can’t get over how much more hair he has now! He looks like he has short hair in those first few pictures! 🙂

  5. Kathleen VanDeVeere

    Happy Gotcha Day to the Finn…and happy “parts” to the mom SOON!!!

  6. Laurel Anderson

    Hi Mary, I’m sooo sorry about your back pain! I hope it’s better quickly too. For my caption I would say, it’s my turtle, just try to take it, pleeeease try to take it grrrrrrr
