Hi everyone, I have a card to show you plus a bit of a personal update. I'll leave the update until the end of the post, so just continue to read on if you'd like to know.
I've used this month's Bling Sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps, ABSC033. I used the owls from AnnaBelle Stamps 'Hooo Loves Christmas' set, which as you can see is not just for Christmas cards. I figure this would make a great Valentine or Anniversary card.
I've also used Kaisercraft DP and chocolate pearls, the greeting is from the same stamp set as the owls. I cut out my owls, then coloured them with Copic Marker and adhered to some layered Nestabilities dies - circles and Blossoms. The heart is coloured, then cut out and layered with a dimensional dot. The greeting is also popped up with dimensional dots.
Well, that's the card now for my update. I had yet another CT scan 2 weeks ago, then got the results from my Oncologist last Monday. The news was not quite what I wanted, but not disastrous by any means. The cancer that I have had all along in my lymph nodes has had a slight increase in size (0.3cm, so they now are 1.3cm). My Oncologist didn't seem too concerned by this as it hasn't spread anywhere else yet, he also said that my particular cancer has not acted the way they thought it would all along. He encouraged me to take another 2 months off chemo before we start again on a new regime, so I have agreed to take this path. I'm a bit disappointed by the CT results, but I'm trying to maintain a positive outlook. It's really strange as since I've been off chemo, a lot of the time I don't even think of myself as having a serious illness at all! Maybe that's just me being stubborn and refusing to acknowledge that I do have this rotten disease.
If you made it through all my waffling on, thanks for reading/listening!
