Hello friends! I'm so happy I was able to make another card using the Our Daily Bread Designs April new release before having my surgery! As I post this, I am preparing to have surgery tomorrow afternoon. I am totally at peace with the decisions I have made for my surgery, and am not anxious at all! In fact I am looking forward to finally getting this cancer out of my body and moving on to the next phase!
I used Quilted with Love for my sentiment, and the Log Cabin Quilt Die to create my "corner" treatment. I offset that with a die from the ODBD Decorative Corner Die set, and I cut the sentiment with an ODBD Mini Tag Die. I matted everything with Neenah Solar White 140 lb card stock and the patterned papers are from the new Americana Quilt Collection. Quick and simple but I am really loving this new quilt die! I hope to get the rest as soon as I'm back up and able to create again.
This journey with cancer, chemo, surgery and soon radiation has really offered many special blessings along the way, in spite of the difficult times! One of those blessings has been how many people have stepped up to help us in some way, and whom I truly do love to pieces!!! Words can't even begin to express my gratitude to my family and friends for all they have done to help during this time! I have a feeling I will be writing thank you notes for a long time to come and still won't be able to thank everyone!!! Friends and neighbors have brought us meals, given gift cards to restaurants so my hubby can pick up a to go order on days I'm not up to cooking, sent innumerable gifts and hand made treasures from the heart which have nourished our bodies, our souls and our spirits, blessed us with visits, calls, cards, and most especially prayers! How can I ever thank them enough? I really can't, but I can try... and that is with just a simple word of thanks and love to all the wonderful people who have blessed us so! If you are among those who have been praying for me... please accept my note of gratitude and love!!! I truly feel blessed beyond measure!!!
