CTS #223 ~ You Are Wonderful!


Hi there! Sorry once again for the absence here. My hubby had some surgery on his lower eyelid for a teeny spot of skin cancer. It turned out to be a much bigger deal than expected. Not the skin cancer, but the reconstruction from it being removed. Luckily he had vacation time and has been home since the last week of April. My guy and our little Sweet P come first, but I did squeeze in time for a card last night. This one is for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.



All of the recently release Pretty Pink Posh stamps sets and dies are now back in stock. The Woodland Critters set is very popular and sold out quickly. Here's a little inspiration using the stamps and dies in case you would like to add them to your collection. I'm so smitten with this adorable cuddly bear! Some Gold Mini Star Confetti and a Stardust Gelly Roll Pen add just a touch of sparkle to my design. 




Thanks for popping by. Have a blessed weekend.

Your card is so adorable with the soft bear and the mini mushrooms. Makes me think of a children's book!

I hope your husband is feeling better. That kind of surgery does NOT seem like it would be an easy one. (not that any surgery is but eyes just are so fragile!!) I LOVE your lovely card. The images are so sweet!!

What a sweet, *sweet* card, Lisa.
I hope your husband heals well and quickly. Skin cancer is a dangerous thing; so glad they caught his and removed it.
Take care, my friend. You are often in my thoughts. :-)

This is so darling, Lisa. He reminds me of Winnie the Pooh. I'm sorry your husband's recovery took so long.

Your card is adorable, Lisa. Love the setting you created. Hoping all is now well with your DH. My daughter in law's family battles skin cancer, and has to go regularly for check ups, and has to wear plenty of sunscreen. My husband goes in Thursday for knee surgery. Guess who will be his nurse??? Hugs and prayers for your family!
