What a Day!!!
From 8:30 until 2:30 today I sat in different hospital waiting rooms while my DH was having testing done to see where his cancer stands at this point in time ... please pray it's GONE!!! He had testing yesterday and also tomorrow ... then results will be back next Wednesday ... I'll be sitting on pins & needles until we get the results!!
Anyways, this really exhausted him so upon arriving home he went directly to bed and I went directly to my craftroom! Here are a few challenge cards I was able to get completed. Please let me know what you think of these! Both cards will also be donated to the Cards for a Cause challenge over on Splitcoaststampers - Chemo Angels. (how appropriate, huh!)
Card #1 was done for today's Sketch Challenge over on SCS. To keep the weight of this card to a minimum, I chose to border panels 2 & 3 using a Creative Memories round black marker vs cardstock matting. Panel #3 was handmade using a stipple brush first, then stamping the fern image then sponging over with Ranger vintage photo ink. This cute bird image is by Magenta and I stamped it on glossy white paper and colored it using SU inks and inking nibs.
Card #2 was done for the challenge over on the Color Throwdown Blog. I had to improvise a little since I don't have all the new SU IN-colors yet but I came close!! I just received my Stampin' D'Amour stamps and couldn't wait to ink one up! Aren't these three little girls adorable?? You'll be seeing more of these Stampin' D'Amour images coming soon!
Thanks for stopping by and please, leave a comment ... I love hearing what you have to say!!!
Also thanks to all of you who have expressed your thoughts & prayers for me and DH during this cancer journey we are on!!! Bless You!!
