Kristi's card

Hello! Today's card is one that I made for my friend Mary's daughter Kristi. She has been battling breast cancer for several months now at the University of Michigan hospital in Ann Arbor, and is currently consulting with doctors in Houston, Texas regarding further treatment. Because I am a two-time survivor of the dreaded disease, I felt this card was very appropriate. I think of them often and our prayers are constantly sent out for the entire family.

The stamp I used is from the "Think Pink" set by My Favorite Things stamp company and the background is the "Swiss Dots" embossing folder by Cuttlebug. Thanks for stopping by today!

I have always loved aprons! I own several of them - some are old and hold many good memories and some are newer. My sister Joann (who is an excellent seamstress) recently made me a beautiful, reversible apron with a delightful cherry pattern. I love it! I decided to make her a card to thank her and this is what I came up with. Thank you again, Joann!

I hope all of you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by today.

I've been gone for a while...

Hello Everyone! My last post was in December and now it's July! In December I had some health issues with my heart and in January, as some of you know, my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer, which had spread to his brain. After brain surgery and radiation treatments, he went through a rough time due to steroids and a possible seizure, which landed him in the hospital and then a nursing home to rehabilitate. He is home now and doing well. The tumor that is left in his brain is only 2cm. and the tiny spot on his lung has not gotten any larger or spread elsewhere in his body. We keep praying that this remission will last a long time.

In the meantime, I haven't spent very much time making cards or posting to my blog. Now that our schedules are a little bit more normal, I've had time to make a few cards, both at a couple of stamp camps and in my studio.

The card I am posting today is one I made for my daughter Monique when she bought her first NEW car about six weeks ago. She is now living in her own apartment and loves her new car!

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll post again later this week. Don't forget - you can leave a comment on this post if you would like.
