Don't let them tell you

Here's another wonderful Dead Sea Toon stamp from Miss Rach Stamps.  I added a great sentiment that I thought was just perfect for this month, "Don't let them tell you it can't be done."  I can't even tell you how many doctors I saw before Dr. Aboumatar who said they would fix me, help me, stop my sickness....I think I might have even laughed when doctor's said it because so many tried and nothing ever happened.  Dr. Aboumatar was of course very different because it was going to mean Brain Surgery, which was super scary, not because of brain surgery so much as the fact that about two thirds of the people who go for testing to see if they qualify for brain surgery don't qualify.  When I realized that my first appointment with him was resulting in brain surgery testing, I immediately stood up, walked out of the exam room, got my husband to listen because my brain had checked out.

Once he said, "it's time."  I was way more afraid of not qualifying for brain surgery than the surgery itself.

Great card, Holley. I'm the polar opposite of you... my favorite color is purple, while I dislike red with an ironic passion!

Audrey R said...

Love the card, especially the sentiment. Jewel tones are my favorite.

Susan T. said...

Pretty card, amazing story! So happy for you. I use all colors, but jewel tones are my go to usually.

Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw said...

I'm so glad it worked out for you, Holley!
I really don't have specific fave colors, but I tend toward deep red and teals (not at the same time). Orange is not a fave, but I don't hate it either. Lol xxx

I look forward every February to hearing your story again. It just amazes me! Dr. A really is a miracle worker. Thank God for brilliant doctors right? I've known a few in my lifetime as well.

Your cards this week have been super cute! You make all those stamps look so pretty with the way you color them, and all that lace you bring home from Turkey is just scrumptious!

Colors...well, I don't use much brown unless it's distressing ink or coffee/tea dyed paper. I am a shabby/grungy/boho kinda girl, so muted jewel tones or pastels are great! Pink is my favorite, but any shade in the red family will do. I like bluish/purply shades and greens as well. Yellow is nice sometimes. I'm not as crazy about orange, and really don't use it hardly at all. Basically, if it's a color that would be in a spring flower garden I will love it! lol

Why do I always leave such long answers? lmbo!

Karthikha said...

Linda S Vigil said...

Wow that llama is a real cutie, need to check those stamps out! I really like so many colors, turquoise and lilac especially drawing my eye recently. We have a somewhat similar story that affected our family 40 years ago, still loyal to, and thankful for the medical organization that could operate. God Bless you.

Linda Simpson said...

Loving the llama and sweet sentiment. I don't really have a colour I don't like. My favourite combinations are brown and blue, teal and lilac, purple, orange and green. My all time favourite colour is purple of any shade.

Amy Martin said...

Such a cute llama. I use more blues, purples and pinks. My favorite color is Teal so thats probably why. I dont usually use yellow or red.

papersmiles said...

I use a lot of blues and pinks. Not much into browns and tans, though. I am soooo glad that you "qualified" for the surgeries that changed your life. You are one strong woman. Blessings, Barbara

SHartl said...

I love your success story Holley, and am so glad it worked for you. This is an adorable card and a great sentiment too! My favorite colors right now are turquoise and teal, coral, red, and silver.

StampNK said...

That is a cute llama and card, and the perfect sentiment for you. I like to use a lot of different colors but tend not to use much yellow, pink and orange.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Very cute. Favorite colors are purples, greens and blues. Least favorite is orange, brown.

Suzanne H said...

You have such an incredible story. I like lots of colors and I don’t think I dislike any. If I had to pick a favorite, I’d say red.

New Creations said...

Love this true sentiment with your cute Llama!
I love all colors and blue is my fave one!

Jean said...

I cute. I love any shade of blue.

Rachel Duong said...

This is a great card. I love strong sentiments paired with a cute quirky animal!
My favorite color is blue. It has been blue since the day I was born! I always choose blue for everything.
I really don’t have a least favorite color. I guess if we are talking about my least favorite color to wear it would be orange.

I am so thrilled that you did find the right doctor and got treatment!! So many like yourself hear the bad diagnosis and really just check out! So glad you kept pursuing different dr's!! As for the other stuff: Hate all Halloween stuff; Love pinks, purples, blues, and basically peacock colors. So gold, copper and silver which go so well with peacocks, right? Happy 10th year anniversary!! So happy to celebrate with you!

ionabunny said...

Wow, yes, the words brain and surgery sound like a very scary combination bwahahhaaaaaa. I am glad you found your doctor and the strength to do the surgery. Blessings on you both. I love blue and black and white. I rarely use yellow, but am always pleasantly surprized when I do LOL. Hugz

Rhonda Miller said...

I love that image. Great card. I would probably say blues, greens, purples and yellow. I tend to shy away from darker colors.

Christi said...

I Have never had a favorite color and because of this, my 5-year-old granddaughter hates that I am missing one so she "assigned" me a favorite color! My assigned favorite color is BLUE! HAHAHAHA! I do not have a favorite because like music to me, I like ALL colors! I think God gave us colors to beautify everything just a bit different. Have a blessed day!

Shelley said...

Great card and sentiment. So sorry you had such an awful go of it looking for answers. Hmmm, love blue greens, yellow (makes me smile), purples and I really don't have many that would be "least favourite" altho' I'm not a "pink girly girl" but do find myself using pinks lol.

Larisa said...

Oh wow, I LOVE this card!! My fave colour is green
