Chomping at the Bit!
Still have lots of thank-yous I need to send, but meanwhile, I needed a get well for a friend. I used the Stampin' Addicts Pinterest Recycle Challenge #6, which happens to be a sketch, for the inspiration. The monochromatic look works well on this card, I think. And you can't see it in the photo, but the dahlia has Dazzling Details glitter accents and looks fab in real life. ;-)
This sketch would work for so many occasions! I can see it as an Autumn card, with leaves and acorns, Halloween with a group of pumpkins, or a birthday card with a group of balloons.
It is soooo nice to get back in my craft room! I really missed the "therapy" that creating gives me. These past few weeks have been a hectic whirlwind, to say the least. From the date of my husband's diagnosis to his surgery was just SIX DAYS, so we didn't really have time to prepare (probably a good thing - no weeks of dreading it). Now it is two weeks out from the surgery and he is doing remarkably well.
I am so grateful for the blessings we've been given, from the diagnosis being something that could be repaired with surgery, to the doctors who were so skillful in doing the surgery, to the wonderful nurses who took care of him in the hospital, to being able to stay with him overnight in the ICU (and the regular room when he was moved upstairs), to all the prayers and well-wishes from family and friends.
