Artbooking miss you card



Thank you all so much for the well wishes. It means so very much! My biopsy is scheduled for Friday, so I will know early next week what exactly I am dealing with. They gave me a breathing test today and my lungs are only functioning at 60%. All this time I thought me being out of breath was because of my seriously lack of exercise and sedentary lifestyle (ie the life of a crafter ;-)).

Ok, today I have a card I made using the Artbooking cartridge and the stamp of the month. This tree is one of my favorites! I think it would make a great stained glass project. If only I knew how to do that!

Like the Tree card. Like the text background. Thoughts & prayers for you. My Hubby's youngest brother had a shortness of breath issue and it turned out to be a spine issue. Youngest brother is a doctor and the statement that doctors make the worse patients is true since he figured that it was not anything to be concerned about. His wife & family finally had him get it checked out and he had surgery on his spine.

Your background is awesome, and the tree is the best! I also visualized fall colors on your tree many months from now, thanks for sharing this project, but more thanks for sharing your health issues with us. You could of left it as a private matter, but instead you opt to share with us, and we will be with your on this journey. Prayers for you and your family. (((Hugs)))

Great card - love that tree. It could be used for 3 of the 4 seasons, just by changing the paper for the leaves. Would love to have that Artbooking cart, but need to watch my crafting pennies right now.

Barbara Hart said...

Melanie, your tree card is adorable!I agree it lends itself to a stained glass project; but I like what you have done with the image! I think of you often, and lift you up in prayer.

Love,Love,Love this card. Thanks for sharing it I am going to make one for my high school girlfriend who lives very far away. We talk by email and text but only get to see each other a couple times a year. I can't wait to see your next project.

I could say this is my favorite image in the Artbooking Cartridge. I don't have this cartridge (yet) but I looked through the images it can cut. I was supposed to be designing a wedding care for a co-worker with tree as the theme, and I was planning to use this. But she backed-out. Shoot! It should have been an excuse for me to buy this cartridge...I read about your health status. I wish you strength to overcome all the things that's coming your way...That free CTMH cartridge promo is a very good deal. Very tempting. Is there a monthly quota to be a CTMH consultant?

Linda Kaiser said...

Love the card and want you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Melanie,
I'm praying for you and sending you the biggest hug. I'm so sorry you're having to go through this. The waiting is so hard.
Love,
Joy D.
