Digi Stamp, Pippi

Well, it's been an interesting week and a half! My mother had to go in for a hip replacement, so we went to join her in Chilliwack. She made it through the surgery but has quite a bit of swelling and is dealing with it as well as she can. It's only the second time she's ever been in a hospital, the first being when my brother was born.

As difficult as it has been for her so far, I think she's a champion. So I drew up a digi stamp in her honor. I know she'll make it through and be able to walk freely again one day soon. 

So this is for you Mom...you're stronger than you think!! I love you!!

This is also for you, my faithful followers for a limited time. I hope you can use it!
