Yes - it's a dreary day here also Ducky. Kona is on the mend - she had it bad. Heidi is on the mend - she is dealing with it much better than Kona. Polly is still down for the count but I'm keeping my eye on her. Calvin is next . . . Now that we know this is actually a infectious thing Judd is picking up different meds for everyone on his way home from work so that's good news for Kona - she doesn't need the big bag of meds we brought home last night - just a pill instead.

Here are few more from me:

Good news, Kristin. Glad to here things are going better at you house. I just back from my mall walk. It's much to miserable outside for a walk. Cute cards.

Purplybunny - you are rocking this marathon!

Kathy - those kitty collages are the cat's meow!

Sharlene - I'm glad you had a good walk at the mall. I took trash out and got the mail and you are so right - it's just wet and miserable.

this has been fun, hopefully I'll get a couple more done.
BUT, I did the dumbest thing...a sweet young friend that I haven't seen in 18months, surprised me with a visit , bringing her 6month old Baby boy, and hubby.(they live in San Diego now) Anyway, we were standing and talking and I just couldn't help myself, the babe looked sooooo adorable and he was sleeping...I asked if I could hold him , and they passed him to me...(he's 24lb) I'm holding him and rocking on my feet and my back started feeling funny....yup....the old back went out....just plain old "went out". :shocked::arghh::(:no::yes:
sigh.

I made this card for Kristin,
"Kitty and Me"

purplybunny
01-23-2012, 07:29 PM

paintmanycolors, so sorry to hear of your mishap! Do take care.
Kristin, so good to hear all the kitties are on the mend.

Hope you feel better soon, Paintmanycolors!

KESagers
01-23-2012, 09:09 PM
Oh no Paintmanycolors! How upsetting! It's so frustrating to get hit with that all of a sudden. I love that card! You captured the Kristin/Kitty connection perfectly. Please take care of yourself - I hope your back heals quickly.

Thank you for all of the well wishes. Heidi and Kona are definitley on the mend. Poor Polly is still in the middle of it. I'm about to go dispense the pills - first I'll try Pill Pocket treats and if that doesn't work I'll dig out the pill poppers. Fingers crossed!

Suze
01-23-2012, 09:33 PM
oh, I think I'm ok, its amazing what a happy pill and heating pad will do :yes:

I'm glad you like the card, Kristin.....I thought maybe you needed a kitty that won't need med's. ; )

Just Ducky
01-23-2012, 09:40 PM
oh dear...pill poppers... ain't it neat how a sweet kitty can clamp them lips shut...:yes:

so yep, I was all a flutter today ... so made some butterflie cards.. now going to try some more hedge hog stamped thingy... 8:30 so still have a few hours left...

Wonderful butterfly cards Ducky - so cheerful - just what we need after a dark and rainy day!

I'm so glad so many of us could play this weekend at the last minute. It was a blast to co-host with my fellow NJ AFA friend. Thank you Sharlene! And thanks to everyone who shared their art!

It's off to bed for me - I'll check the thread in the morning. Have a great night everyone!

I was gone for a few hours and I missed alot. All the cards that were posted are beautiful. They remind me more of spring than winter. I'll have a better look at them in the morning.

It is so foggy out, driving is difficult. I had some friends over to play cards and it was hard for them to drive home. Hopefully, better weather tomorrow.

Well, Impromptu-A-Thon is officially over, but I'm sure some of us still have more trades to do. Go for it.

It was a fun weekend and a great way to spend a stormy weekend. Thanks to all! Thanks Kristin for co-hosting.

I posted my cards to all my swap friends this morning. Hope they are not too long in arriving. Think I am addicted to athons :D:yes::laugh:

ADDIcted to athons.............. nah.... won't ever happen.....:confused: :skeptical:

CynthiaSillitoe
01-24-2012, 06:41 PM
We can all be addicted together. :) I found a sheet of stamps I'd forgotten--love it when that happens--so, with a victory dance at being my most athon organized--these will all be in Wednesday's mail. Unless it snows again...in which case, we may need another athon. :)

KESagers
01-24-2012, 07:19 PM
LOL - I think we always need another athon. ;)

A-Thons are my favorite! :D
All but one of my trades are mailed and that one will go out tomorrow.
Thanks for the fun, and I hope to trade with more of you the next one, as I cleared my slate clean of swaps, so I (hopefully) will be be able to just have FUN with art!
Gonna try Rolos this time. I have a whole pack of them and wish I had thought to mail some out. Oh well, if any one is interested in having some blanks, let me know the next A-Thon and I will mail out with Valentines A-Thon cards, making that at least three deep in A-Thons from now. Oh Dear! I'm so confused now! :jiggy: :arghh: :jiggy:

I miss the whole thing...my DH got kidney stones so I spent Sat night in the Emergency room from 8:30 until midnight...came home to sleep which is and 80 mile drive...turned around on Sunday morning and went back to the ER.... they admitted him Sun afternoon...then because he was not a schduled patient to have surgury had to wait until almost 5 oclock Monday afternoon to have the surgury....then he spent another night in the hospital. So only got back home today. Will have to check out all the art that was made.

CynthiaSillitoe
01-24-2012, 08:52 PM
Ouchies! I think an athon would have been more fun. :)

Blanche
01-24-2012, 09:02 PM
dsign49,
My hubby is a kidney stone manufacturer, so I feel for you. Really. We have done that so many times we have both lost count. Luckily our drive to the hospital is only a coupla miles. His Urologist is on speed-dial. Bless you both! (hugs)

CynthiaSillitoe
