Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying wonderful week! I am trudging along now in my 4th week of radiation. After 5 weeks they will start what they call the "boost" week, which is a doubled up effort to get just the tumor area and incision line. That will be the 6th and final week. I've been praying that I would not burn and so far I have not really burned! I have itchy rashes on the chest, shoulder and back, but no blisters or terrible discomfort! So I'm praising the Lord for that!
Anyway... the sets and dies this month inspired me to make a card for a special event coming up in August. I used the Wish and Celebrate Dies, Balloons and Streamers Dies, the Numbers Dies, and the Sunburst Background die for this card. I also used the Pierced Circle Dies and Double Stitched Circle Dies to make my frame for my window. This is not a real shaker card. Instead I used vellum for my window and just placed some fun confetti inside that is made up of the Streamers die cuts and some sequins. They are cut from the same foiled paper but the vellum softens the colors and the camera makes them look lighter but they are the same. I used Foiled Gold and Mirrored Saffire because that is the 45th Anniversary gem. For the word Celebrate, I die cut it from gold and saffire so I could shadow them.
I am really enjoying these Word die and sentiments sets! They are going to be "go to" sets for so many occasions! I hope you are enjoying all the design team samples this month!
Thanks for stopping to take a peek, and thanks for your prayers! They are felt and being answered! I'm looking forward to getting this phase behind me and letting things settle down a bit. I will still need to leave my port in until Nov. because I still get one infusion for the completion of a year, which I am 6 months done with now. So... when that port comes out you are going to hear me whooping and hollering as they say! It will symbolize this entire year's battle with cancer being over and I'm hopeful that it will be the end, with no recurrences ever! That's been our prayer!
