Happy Birthday Landon

My sweet grandson will be 11 on Saturday. He loves to play basketball, so I made him a basketball card! The basketball paper is from a 6x6 paper pad
from Karen Foster 6x6 Sports pad.
The card was made with a Sizzix Triple Circle Flip-its

Thank you

A sweet sister missionary from our church will be going home this week. She is so sweet and I am so grateful that we have had the blessing of getting to know her. I made this card for her. The trellis is a punch from E.K. Success and the Thank You is a die from Elizabeth Crafts. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

It feels so good to make a card

I used My Creative Time for the Fun size bow and Elizabeth Crafts  for the Happy Birthday. A few hand cut banners and sequins and it's done.

I made this quick card for my hubby. He wasn't home when I posted this so I had to be inventive to take a pic of this card. I propped my pillow up on my open laptop and it sort of worked!
Update: I woke up one morning and I could hardly hear. My hubby had to face me when he talked so I could try to read his lips. A few different Dr. appointments later and I had to have tubes put in my ears (am I 5? ) My grandsons had that done, but they were 5). I can hear better now. My grandsons had to go to the hospital and have it done. I just had a regular appointment at the Dr's office. It took about 10 minutes. I definitely understand why they have to go under anesthesia because it is so loud when they are working in your ear, a little one would never be able to lay still. I used products from My Creative Time and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The folder has large hearts all over it, but most of it is hidden by the layers.  The photo looks like the card is bowed out of shape, but, the card is flat in person. I probably won't use my pillow as a background any more! tfl......................dianne


We were so blessed to go to our daughter's graduation last Friday. She received her Masters Degree in Social work. She was so happy and so were we!

Great day!

Today was a great day! I've been dreading to find out the results of my MRI. It was really good news. The cancer on the left side of my brain doesn't even show up and the cancer on the right side of my brain is smaller. I'm very blessed.
I have missed making cards so much. I made Easter cards for my grandsons and forgot to take a picture for my blog. I need to work on my grandsons scrapbook, but I need to get some cards made!

Thank you for hanging in there with me.......dianne

April update

I had 3 Dr. appointments this week. On Monday I saw an ear specialist about my hearing, or lack of hearing! I have fluid behind my eardrums. My hearing has improved but not completely. If it doesn't improve I may have to have tubes put in my ears. Oh, my grandsons are going to get a kick out of that! They had to get tubes when they were little and probably didn't think that was for old people!
Tuesday I had chemo and Wednesday I had an MRI. Dr. is checking to see if the Tycurb pills are helping the cancer in my brain or not. Thank you for your prayers, they are giving me so much comfort.

I started on the Tycurb two weeks ago. I had to take a two day break from it. It was making me so sick. The radiation on my brain has some interesting side effects. My teeth got loose and one of my crowns fell out. I woke up one morning and could barely hear. My hubby had to face me when he talked because I couldn't hear what he was saying. Most of my hair is gone now, I had to bring out the beenies.
One day at a time
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
