Scoring on cardstock

This is a quick tip for scoring on cardstock. I apologize for my shaking hands. I hope it isn 't too distracting, the chemo drugs make my hands shake.

I ran this white cardstock through an embossing folder. Chalked the flowers and leaves and used Pearl Pens for the center of the flowers. I die cut the "hello" three times each and layered them on top of each other (My Creative Time). Added Wink of Stella on the "hello". When I first made these I was adding bling to the flower centers but it was very time consuming and the pearl pens looked much better. Thanks for popping by. Have a wonderful day!     dianne

Lawn Fawn and Sizzix

I needed a get well card for  friend and I came up with this.The stamps with matching dies are from Lawn Fawn, Get well soon. The card die is from Sizzix. triple circle flip its. The matching dies help me out because I have a hard time fussy cutting because my meds make my hands shake. Being able to die cut around the image works for me My hubby took the pic for me. Thank you for stopping by! .......dianne

Crafting with cancer.

Hello my sweet friends. A little update. When I went for chemo a week and half ago, the dr. noticed something wasn't quite right with me. I had a stroke. I went straight for an MRI and was admitted to the emergency room. I was really confused and still am a little bit. We have to make some decisions. I chose no brain surgery, but said I would have radiation on my brain again. Ten rounds but that is the last step in radiation. My hair just started to grow back and it's all going to fall out again. Not sure if I will be on the chemo IV anymore, but definitely won't take any more chemo pills. One of the other choices was to stop all chemo and get put on hospice and may have 6 months to live. I told my family I will do what  I can but when I will know when it's enough. I have five little grandsons to watch grow.
Now onto the crafting part............There has been 3 times when I thought my time had come. What brought me out of it and gave me hope and joy? Being able to make cards again and enjoy my time here.Instead of just laying here, I found creating so important for my days and mailing people cards that made them happy. I love creating! Thank you for all of your thoughts, and prayers and support.
