MMSC #46 and health updates ...

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!

Let me begin by saying that today is a VERY GOOD day here at the Pavlick house!  My sweet husband had surgery this morning to remove his chemo port now that he has remained cancer free for the past year!  Oh Happy Day!!!

And an update on our grand-daughter's friend C. J. is a positive one.  He underwent several hours of surgery yesterday to repair his broken (4 places) Pelvis and came through it very well.  They said he won't be allowed to walk for 3 months ... a very long journey ahead for this young man but with love & prayer, he too will get through it one day at a time!  Your continued prayers would be appreciated!

I have to say I really look forward to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge each week!!  And now that they offer two versions of the sketch ... it's even more fun!!  Last week was a bad week for me so I went with the EASY sketch ... this week I went back to the more elaborate sketch!  What FUN!!
Here are the details on my creation:

Vintage Image:  Shabby Chic Papirskatter
Papers:  Sage Shadow, K&Co. designer paper
Accessories:  Kaiser pearls, Pink Stickles, Michaels satin ribbon

Please stop back later when I hope to share my Crafty Secrets Challenge creation with you.  After seeing the clues provided yesterday ... I took the chance I had it right & created  my card.  Now that SCS is down for maintenance, I can't find out if I had the challenge right or not!  Uugh!!  Either way, I will share it with you later today!! Happy Stamping!!
