Stamp Simply #68 - Thankful


Hello my friends!


Here is a card that should have been done a week ago (but who's counting, right!). I made this for the challenge over on Sharon Johnson's No Time to Stamp blog. The theme for this Stamp Simply challenge was to make a Thank-You Card. And of course to try and "keep it simple".
Here I've used a basic white card and a piece of designer paper from the DCWV winter pack. I cut a 1" piece of navy cardstock, then using the SU slit punch, made the reverse scalloped edge. To add an edge on the opposite side, I used a ZIG navy marker and just edged the designer paper.
The image is by Stampendous and was stamped in SU Not Quite Navy ink ... then overstamped for the shadow affect. My sentiment is from the Inkadinkado (garden flower) clear stamp set and I used Kaleidocolor (blue breeze) ink. I matted the main image using the same navy cardstock as the edging, tied a small piece of sheer navy ribbon at the bottom of the image and quick & easy ... card complete.
Thanks for stopping by! For those of you who having been following my DH's cancer journey, here is an update.
We were at the Oncologist today and his blood numbers are good! He is experiencing more exhaustion & nausea ... but not nearly as bad as we had anticipated. He is scheduled for the 2nd round of this I.C.E. chemo the weekend of Jan. 16th. From there we have an appt. with the surgeon at Cleveland Clinic to determine if he will need a 3rd round of I.C.E. or if they will advance into the stem cell harvesting process. Thanks for all your prayers ... please keep them coming!! Bless You All!!

  2. That designer paper is so cool with the turquoise and black and the swirls. I like how you used the reverse of the scalop border. Very clever.

  5. I'm happy your DH's blood count looked good. congrats on all your blog awards! Love your card! The colors are so pretty. I see your counter isn't working either, and I noticed another blogger's counter isn't working too. Maybe the 'counter people' are having problems. I've temporarily removed mine from my blog. When I see that they are up and running again, I'll put it back on.
