Well, I got home from a very long day at work to some fun mail. My MFT stamp order came in!!!! I absolutely love this stamp set!!!! I went upstairs immediately to my craft room and got to work. I used my Prismacolors colored pencils for the girls, fun brads & scalloped ribbon. The printed cardstock is by Stacy Claire Boyd. I just had to use my Stickles on the tiny ribbons. I put a little bit of pearlescent chalk on the girl in pink. I even found pink grossgrain ribbon that I made into the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon. Lastly, had to add in some pop dots for dimension. I can see making a bunch of these cards for my girlfriends, along with some fun pink goodies to wear!
On another note.... I am so excited and happy to announce that my mother was released from the hospital today, two weeks to the day of her bladder removal surgery. She is finally home! My father & I are so happy. She seems like a brand new woman to me. You wouldn't be able to tell she is battling bladder cancer. She was even brave enough to show me what her urostomy bag looks like and how she can go anytime she wants & even doing it standing up! I love that she has such a great outlook and is staying positive. Thank you for all of your prayers. My family has truly appreciated it. She returns to the oncologist 6 weeks after her surgery, which is November 1st, to see what the next step is (another bout with chemo & radiation??)
Thank goodness the weekend is finally here.....I have some fun stamping to do this weekend!
