My father was diagnosed with Colon cancer several weeks ago and has the beginning of Alzheimer's disease. He is 88 and as hard as it is, I have to support his decision not to have any surgery, chemo or radiation. He has severe COPD and would not do well. My mother has the beginning of dementia and it is very hard living 2000 miles away from them. This trip, I had no clue what I would have to face when I arrived. Well, it's all good!! My father has lost a lot of weight but has no pain! He is in good spirits and still tinkering around the house. My mother is doing good and this is turning out to be a great visit!!I didn't know if I would be able to go home and I am flying home on the 12. . I will come back in another month and keep doing this until I need to come and stay. My hubby, daughter and family are coming in on Saturday and so all is good!!! I know what's coming, but God has given me a little bit more time to be with my dad and I am very, very thankful!! Well, anyway that is why I go in and out of MIA with my postings. Thank you for hanging in here with me!! I am so thankful!
My card today was made for one of my card customers grandson!! My background paper is digital and I forgot to bring all the information with me. I printed it out once on white card stock and the second one is the same images only I used Photo Shop to colored some yellow sections before printing. I used Soot Distress Ink on all of the edges with a sponge. I am not sure who's digi I used and if you would like to know about it or the paper please email me and when I get home I will send you the information.

TIP OF THE DAY: Did you know you can make pearl dots, icicles and much more with your glue gun? These are video's by Jo Ham, who is on The Outlawz Design team! I bought the the pointed gun and started making my own for they are so easy to do. I did purchase Bazzill Splat Matt: which is one slick, non-stick work surface! This reusable mat withstands up to 500 degrees. Nothing sticks - glue, glitter, paint, ink, wax, soap, or starch; it all peels off once dry. Resists the hot temperature of a soldering iron, wood burning tools and hot wax or glue.Awesome pad for they glue dots come off of it so easily!!
