Thankful! Funday Friday Challenge and Update on Hubby

Happy Friday to you my crafty friends. Today is Funday Friday over at Jo's Scrap Shack. Before I get to my project for today, just want to give a little update on my hubby. His CAT scan showed that the cancer is on his lung now-about 2 inches long, up by the heart as well as a marble sized spot on his liver. It wasn't a shock to hear this as we knew the cancer cells spilled out into his abdomen but it still hit me like a ton of bricks. Hubby is in good spirits and is confident that the chemo will do what it needs to do to kill these cells. And if not kill them, keep them managed. So thank you for all who are keeping hubby in your prayers. Please keep praying. I believe in the power of prayer and I know that we aren't on this journey alone. Our family, friends and my internet buddies are helping us through this. It will be a long haul, but praying that it is going to be a successful one. 

Ok on to my project for today. We have two sponsors today, StampArt and Bugaboo. Our own sweet and talented designed team sister, Mary (Momma Mary to me), has chosen our theme and it is Thankful. I am so thankful to all who have been praying for my hubby and for my family! Since I'm on team B I was to use a Bugaboo digital image and I chose this cute little pilgrim. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers, then used snippets (as Momma Mary says) from the scrap piles for my layers. My "give thanks" sentiment on the turkey plate came from My Creative Time "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" stamp set and the "happy Thanksgiving" came from My Creative Time "Piles of Smiles" stamp and die set. For my label that I stamped the happy Thanksgiving on is also My Creative Time "Stitched XL Label Die".  That's it, sweet and simple but so thankful!  I hope you will go see what inspiration my design team sisters have for you as well and then join in with us. Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today, for that I'm thankful too! Crafty hugs-Brenda

Aw,no surprise you chose this image. You're always 'doing' for everyone & cooking good stuff. This made me think of you when I saw this sweet little lady. Love how you did the coloring (and fantastic use of all your snippety pieces) and your inside was gaw-jus too. Is that pen stitching on the inside sentiment or was that from your die? Whatever, it's great. Very cleverly done. You hang on sweetie. God is hearing us. Hugs & Prayers.
