Bye Bye Cancer


Hello, Today was a big day for my Hubby! It was his final day of treatment for Prostate Cancer. YAY! I guess I should say it was a big day for me too! It has been somewhat of a rocky road, as he (very unfortunately) was not the only thing the past 7 months that I had to focus on, but we got through it, and it’s time to BEGIN AGAIN! Now that hubby is allowed to ride a bike again, (restrictions from his treatment plan), those are the words (BEGIN AGAIN) he chose to put on the back of his bike. Hubby has been putting signs on his bike for the past 16 years or so. They always reflect what is going on in the world or how he is feeling about something.

Here is the inside of the card. I had a great time making this card for him and mixing stamp companies. I thought it was a fun theme with Halloween just days away too.

Card Details: Stamps- Monsters-My Next Stamp, Ghosts-Miss Ink Stamps, Sentiments were done on the computer and most were stamped with a speech bubble from SU. I used Copic and Prisma Colored Pencils as my medium. I stenciled the wallpaper for inside the house with Oxide inks.

I can’t take any credit for the front of the card…I saw this idea HERE! I had a happy accident though, I messed up the left-hand side of the door and had to cover it, so I made a door jam or molding. I think it worked out well.

I am going to share this card over at Cupcake Inspirations where they have a monster Halloween-themed photo that depicts my monsters perfectly!

Thanks for letting me share my news with you!

Take care of yourself and others as life is uncertain, Nanc’
