Key to my Heart

So again I have been AWOL. Last Thursday I had 4 doctor appointments and then 2 of them scheduled additional tests on Friday. I had to fast to take the test. But when I arrived at 10 am they told me there was an emergency and I'd have to come back at 4pm. Oh and no food or water until then. Are you kidding me? By the time I got back from the test I was sick, shaking and feeling very bad. And then Saturday I got to start prepping for another test on Monday. No solid food on Sunday. So the test was scheduled for Monday at 8:30am. That one didn't go well either and they couldn't complete it, so the doctor sent me for more x-rays and scans and fortunately I was still semi-sedated for all that. I still don;t have all the results back but the ones I did get back just show minor things. They did find a tumor but they said it's benign and nothing to worry about. So praise the Lord. I'm hoping that's it for doctors for the year. With all that going on I haven't had much energy for crafting. But last night, after the sedative wore off I put together a card. Yeah!

I used a piece of a lacy doily for the background. The image and sentiment is from a stamp set called Timeless Treasures by Theresa Momber. The image is die cut with a Spellbinders circle and backed with a scalloped circle of Basic Grey paper. The tag is cut from a Quickcutz die. The sentiment is embossed in black/ I cut the key out and tied it to the tag with baker's twine and added the flower as an embellishment. Hope you like it!
I'm entering this into a couple of challenges:
I'm hoping to get more time this week to play. I've really been missing it! Take care and have a wonderful week. Hope it's warmer where you are. Very cold and windy here.

Love this, Donna. Kraft is so much fun to play with and when you use white with it..it ust pops.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Since you were there, I added a direct link to the doily stamp set. I agree, it's a stunning set.
