Hello my crafty friends, I hope your Monday is off to a great start. I am anxiously waiting to hear back from hubby's chemo office. We got the results of his CAT scan and it wasn't good. The aggressive treatment didn't work at all. The cancer grew some, not a lot, but it still grew. So now doc is going to try a new drug that cost $10,000 for 21 pills a month. Shocked?!! Us too! So we are waiting for the paper work to be done and to see if our insurance is going to cover the cost. If not there are supposed to be programs that will help with the cost. This drug is for people with color cancer who have tried chemo and it didn't work. I am so praying that this drug works for my husband. He does have youth on his side and he is healthy except for the cancer doc said. So please pray with me that this drug works and that insurance will pay for it. We are getting to the end of options, have one more after this and that was the first chemo he did which did shrink on tumor and kills two others. But they came back when he went on the chemo pill, and have since grew with this last treatment. Thank you for all the prayers you have prayed so far, they really mean the world to us.
Ok, now onto this weeks challenge over at BBTB2. I also want to give a shout out to our sweet Jayne, today is her birthday!!! Happy Birthday Jayne!!! Emily is our sweet and talented hostess and she has challenged us to make a Thanksgiving card. Well this is a great challenge because I needed a couple more cards for Thanksgiving so I can get them out in the mail today! So off I went to my crafty room and made a CAS Thanksgiving card. It was Pinterest inspired and you can see the one that inspired me here. I used my CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy to cut out my leaves, used a snippet of colorful paper to but behind my leaves. I then used MCT products to cut my layer with the leaves for my card base. I then stamped my striped border with another MCT stamp set, using orange soda Hero Art Shadow ink and my sentiment also a MCT stamp set. Then using the leaf from one of my negative cut outs, I stamped that too with the striped border as well as another border on the inside mat. I popped up my outside and inside layer with foam tape. That is it folks, I told you it was a clean and simple card! I hope you like it, cause I love how it turned out. So come on and join us in this Thanksgiving card challenge.
Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by and visit me. I know it is only going to get even more hectic with Thanksgiving and Christmas that is right around the corner. All of us have much to do in a small amount of time to do it in. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Hugs, Brenda
Since I used a snippet of paper I can go over and play at the Snippets Playground. Di is a lovely person and it is so fun to join in over there. Some fabulous prizes as well and I should know, I won one last week!
