Linda, no question about it - we are ALL keeping you in our prayers, even when you are not asking for them!!
Since you are getting bored with stamps, have you ever tried punch art - here is the link to the punch art gallery
Punch art - Homemade Cards, Rubber Stamp Art, & Paper Crafts - Splitcoaststampers.com
- you can do so much with punches, it is amazing!! There are something like 6000 samples in this gallery - that will give you LOTS to think about and it will definitely "spice things up" just figuring out things you can make with punches. I love especially the "Angry Bird" one in there from Mrs Boz seen here - including the directions - the kids LOVE this one
