Hello my crafty friends, I just wanted to do a quick update on hubby. Friday he got his port placed in so he can start chemo today. It went really well and he was done in no time. Our surgeon came out and told me and my son that all went really great, and someone was stitching hubby up for him. He said they had to get an x-ray and then we could soon go home. So my son and myself get the signal that we could go back to see hubby. He was getting his x-ray as we got back there. Then we waited, and waited, and waited. Then nurse comes in and tells us that our surgeon wants to talk to us before we can leave. Finally doc comes in and closes the sliding glass door. He tells us that there is a shadow on the x-ray on hubby's lung. He said it wasn't there a month ago and he needs a cat scan done again. So we are all praying that it is only a shadow or scar tissue and not more cancer. Hubby is getting chemo as you read this. 4-5 hours of chemo, then a pump for 48 hours and then chemo again. Next week he will have off and will go back and do it all over again the following week and this will go on for 6 months. So I think we have found our new normal, with a cat scan thrown in for good measure. Hubby is in great spirits as he knows there are so many people praying for him all over the world. How can he lose?!! So if you are one that has been praying for DH thank you from the bottom of my heart. This man is everything to me along with our 6 boys. I can't even imagine life without him.
Ok now that we are getting into a somewhat normal routine once again I am back to crafting! Yay! I love taking care of hubby but so needed some crafty time again. So I'm officially back at BBTB2! Today our sweet and very talented Julie has issued the challenge of "white on white". I love white on white, especially cards. So I just got the Anna Griffith Winter Wonderland cartridge in the mail and of course I really wanted to cut something from it. So I opted to embossed a white layer with snowflakes and then popped that layer up on my white card base. I cut the number 2 ornament at 3 1/2 inches tall out of white card stock. The layers I used a little glitter holographic gold paper, dark green and a slightly lighter dark green. So a little color on this card. I used clear iridescent sequins on some of the embossed snowflakes for some more sparkle. The base layer of my ornament I embossed with embossing glitter from SU. So this card really sparkles and shines in real life! Not so much in the photo. lol I tried, but so hard to capture all that sparkles and shine.
Looking for some more inspiration? Well look no farther than my design team sisters, I tell you they have some amazing white on white inspiration for you! Then why not give this "white on white" a try and link your project up with us over at BBTB2! As always thanks for visiting me today and thanks for hanging with me while I was on leave taking care of my sweet hubby. Happy crafting and crafty hugs to all. Brenda
