OK, now we all have our hopes up! The geophones on the mine picked up intense noise coming from one area of the mine where they are trying to find 6 trapped miners! You can find out more here. It's really amazing information!

I spent the evening in the emergency room with my dear husband. Our garage door busted (got jammed and wouldn't go down all the way) and my husband went out to see what was wrong with it and the next thing I knew, he was bleeding and missing teeth! :( The tension bracket that hooks the door to the cable is completely broken in half on the one side of the door! He had to get 17 stitches and we'll be visiting the orthodontist tomorrow! What a day!

Well, I have something different for you today! Maria (from Digifree) sent me a quick page she made using my double template from the sketch challenge. She made these gorgeous papers that she used with it. So, the freebie comes from both of us! Thanks so much Maria for sending me something I could give away after a stressful day! I'll have side A for you today and I'll put side B up for you tomorrow! I only have 12x12 for you at this time. Here it is:

Make sure you visit Maria's blog (Molly 'n Max) and tell her thanks too!

Hi Andrea. Thanks again for such a great template & glad you liked my QP so much.


Maria said...

Oh and I hope your DH is okay! He's lucky it wasn't more serious. Scary stuff. That mining accident is awful. My dad is a geologist so I'm always sad to hear about mine accidents.

Hi Andrea, thanks again for the QP [and to maria :)].

I hope your DH is gonna be ok and that the dentist can fix his teeth. Good news on the miners, I can't even imagine what its like down there. Not knowing when or even if they will be rescued.

oh Andrea I am so sorry about your DH. we have been through two garage door springs and both times I was so thankful no one was there when they broke. I hope he is ok

Thanks for todays freebie! I did go pass along the thank you's too! One thought... when I opened it up it's named the same as the .png that came with the original template (so I renamed the 1st one). I figured I'd let you know in case you want to change it at 4shared.
I hope you DH gets fixed up! OUch!

I hope your DH is okay. That doesn't sound like much fun.

I will still continue to pray for all the people affected by this tragedy. (And I added your dh too)

Lovely page! It is so nice of both of you kind ladies to share this with me! I hope your husband is mending quickly. Sounds like a terrible accident. Who installed your garage door opener?

Glenda said...

Thank you so much for the two templates. The Scottish kits really worked up nice in your templates.

Sorry to hear about your husband and his accident and I hope he gets well soon. I know that this might not help now, but I have been told that in an accident of that kind when a tooth gets knocked out if you put the tooth in milk and take it to a dentist soon he might be able to reattached it. It's terrible what it's happened to him I hope he gets well soon and best wishes. :)

Sorry about the miners and so sorry about the second accident the rescue team suffer. It's horrible, there's been several mining accidents of that kind in other places. There 172 miners in China trapped also by flooding water in the mine. It's a terrible job and very dangerous.

Best wishes to your husband and all you in your family and take care. :O)

My Little Ironies

And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
