a simple card and updates

This is one of the cards I made during work time last night. I used the Fall Harvest set again, I am loving this image. The stamped image was trimmed with the paper trimmer- except for a small part of the flower which was trimmed with scissors. It adds interest to the image when a small part sticks outside "the box", doncha think? This card is a very simple design and not embellished much but, look at the supplies used.........

Here is a peek at what was used to make my "simple" card. LOL The Scor-pal and V-Blade Paper Trimmer are used on EVERY card I make. LOL And the Prismacolor Pencils and OMS (in the small Baby food jar setting on the collection of blending stumps) are used a good bit too. You can also see I used the Palette Noir ink pad (a must have IMO),

glue dots (for holding the ribbon in place),

sentiment stamp on the acrylic block,

white chalk marker (dots on the flower)

Paper piercer (used to place glue dot under ribbon knot)

black Micro pen (dots around image and outlining flower)

card stock and ribbon. And, after I had all these things put away I heard a few faint sobs coming from my work table, it seems I forgot to add two very important supplies.....

How could I ever forget the ATG and these handy little scissors?? LOL So here they are, in all of their glory. LOL

OK, I need to know where I ever got the idea that making my own cards would SAVE us $$$!!! LOL (Honey, if you are reading this- these things will eventually pay for themselves, promise! *wink*)

Now some updates-

Hailey is doing very well. Her lungs are clear and sound great. The Allergist/Asthma DR added another med and said this should do the trick. Monday, her family DR was pleased with her progress. (I love having a Christian DR that still prays for and with her patients!! She even calls out of the blue to check in.)

Mom has surgery on Oct 20th to remove the marker where the tumor USED to be. It is completely gone!! Praise God!! They will remove a couple of Lymph Nodes at that time and check them- but they are expected to be clean. She will then start Radiation- 5 days a week for 6 weeks.

Also, my Aunt has recently found out that she has cancer of the Kidney. Her surgery to remove at least half of the kidney is Oct. 30th. Please keep her in prayer.

Until later~
