...Strep Throat & Some Amazing News

That's right...strep throat. My doctor says that it is the worse case that he has seen in years, so I am on antibiotics, pain medicine drops for my ears, and cough medicine to stop the coughing so my throat can heal. Needless to say I feel like I have been eaten by a cow and pooped over a cliff...graphic enough for you? LOL! I will be taking a couple of days off to catch up on some much needed sleep before my Open House on Saturday, but I had to share some awesome news with you guys first!

I have spotlighted again in Nancy Riley's iPicks again this week with THIS card AND THIS card. Yep...two! I thought I was going to pass out when my email reader pulled up her blog update on my screen, and it displayed my name with two cards beside it. What an honor! I still can't believe she picked me!

And last, but certainly not least, I won Julee Tilman's Mojo Madness {Sketch #68} Contest over at the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog! Once again my email was the bearer of this wonderful surprise. I would have screamed if I could have worked up enough energy! LOL! I didn't think that I had a chance in the world of winning the challenge/contest. I had seen several of the entries after I had uploaded mine, and there were too many wonderful ones to compete with. So I was just going to be happy with the knowledge that I had completed the challenge before the week had expired. :)

So...even though I feel horrible physically, I am soaring above the clouds mentally this morning! Thanks Julee and Nancy for making an old girl giddy! Well, I am too pooped to party any longer, so I am headed to bed. Until later...

Oh, poor Mercy, I hope you get well really FAST! My 30 year old son had strep before Xmas, and he said he has NEVER had anything so painful in his life! It must be some new HORRID strep, because he was really suffering. And of course he's had strep before~~but not like this! I surely hope you feel better soon, you take care and make your family serve you with whatever you need!!! :D Oh, I almost forgot: CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is truly awesome!!!!

Nancy Riley said...

CONGRATULATIONS, Mercy! This morning I saw that your awesome card had won Julee's challenge. You're soooo deserving!

Now, get well FAST so you can get back to creating those FANTASTIC cards of yours!!!!!

Oy girl...so sorry about the strep. I had it one year for almost 3 months straight and they almost had to put me in the hospital. So...sheesh I can relate with your analogy :( Praying for a speedy healing and that those antibiotics do their work!

You Go girl!! Congrats on the picks of the week AND the Mojo sketch win! I do love your creations and it is nice to know others do too :)

Glad you at least know WHAT has been causing you to feel so yucky. Meds should kick in shortly and you'll be feeling a lot better soon. Make sure you get your rest (said in my best "mom" voice LOL) so you can be back up and running shortly. No pressure to post, we'll be here when you have energy to create again :)
