PWCO stamp launch projects

I'm sorry i wasn't able to post these projects before today. Let's just say we had an eventful New Years Eve day. As some of you that have been following my blog for a while know my dad spent the better part of 2009 in the hospital, 8 1/2 months to be exact. He has been home with us since the end of august and his recovery is stable and was doing well, he is still on an undetermined sick leave from work but all was progressing nicely. Well... on december 31st, just before lunch, my dad decided to take our new puppy outside to pee. Since he's still a puppy we carry him in our arms to go up and down the stairs, well my dad slipped on a tiny patch of ice on one of the steps and fell about 3 or 4 steps. We called an ambulance because it was too painful to breath, i spent the rest of the day with him in the emergency. remarkably we didn't have to wait too much. by 7pm he was the ICU having had X-rays and a scan. The results: 3 broken ribs and a damaged spleen. his spleen bled but it seems contained. they are keeping him in the ICU for observation since if his spleen gets worst the outcome could mean emergency surgery (let's hope it doesn't get to that). He also got an epidural for the pain so that he can breath easier and not create respiratory problems in the long run. he should be in the hospital for a few days. I just hope this isn't a sign of things to come for 2010...

OK so on to the fun stuff!!! here are the two cards i created for the PWCO new stamp release. They are all so cute and i had so much fun coloring these! (yup, that's how i rate a stamp: how fun it is to color!)
