I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Be Strong!!

Ok...so some of you may have seen my card I made for my best friends niece.  A few weeks ago she collapsed right in front of her dad.  She was rushed to the hospital and the next day was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer.  After MANY tests...it was determined that she has a Stage 4 Wilms Tumor that has already affected one of her kidneys and a lung.  She has gone through aggressive Chemotherapy and is now at home resting comfortably.  She is a strong fighter and seems to be brave through this rapid and intense ordeal.

So I made this card for my friend so that she could give it to her niece.  And the report back was that she LOVE IT!

I used the Week #9 SOTW "You Got Heart" and the Itty Bitty "Strong Is Your Only Choice"

I used LOTS of shimmer and bling to make this card sparkle.  I mean, what little 11-year-old girl doesn't like bling and sparkle.  I LOVE it and I'm forty... well let's just say I LOVE IT!  LOL.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great weekend.

  2. Hi Sheryl! A beautiful card to encourage a brave young girl. I love the cute bunny and the colour scheme. Sending prayers her way.
    A few days ago, my friend's wife was diagnosed with 4th stage stomach cancer. The cancer is so aggressive, and their kids are young. My heart just goes out to them. Life is fragile.
    Take care, and a have a lovely weekend!!
