Happy Halloween


 A couple quick Halloween cards for the grandkids. I also made another one like I had made previously. Since they're for two families, I can go with duplicates:)

This first one is for our one granddaughter. I used House Mouse stamps from The Paper Studio. I stamped the image with Memento black ink and colored with copics. I matted with black, mounted on foam squares and added Stardust Stickles to the wings. I colored the sentiment with markers.
I used a Stampin' Up! stamp and SU punches for this tag. I colored the spider and added googlie eyes and mounted on foam squares. The patterned papers are from a Recollections pad.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Happy Anniversary! And Another Update on my Dad

Today is our son and daughter-in-law's eighth anniversary! Sure doesn't seem like their wedding was eight years ago already.

I had to take some time last night and make them a card. I wish I had had more time, but this will have to do. I did the background with Spellbinders dies. The image is a JustRite Stamper stamp. I colored it with Copics and added gems to the flower centers. That's it:)

More news about my dad: Radiation is not out of the question yet, unfortunately. I guess what they removed was not lymph nodes after all, but cancer cells. They are not sure if they got everything or not. He will have to choose between monitoring with ultrasounds or having radiation. He will be meeting with an oncologist on Thursday and will then meet with his doctor again and make his decision.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Updates

Thanks so much for all of your prayers for my dad! He had his PET scan last Thursday and got a call from his doctor already. He does not have to have radiation at this time! They are going to continue to keep a close eye on him.

As to my whereabouts for the past week, this picture is a clue. We went to Disney World! We left on Sunday and got back home on Saturday. We were there with our daughter, son, son-in-law, daughter-in-law and four of our grandchildren. (Wyatt stayed home with his other grandparents. Much better choice for him, and a bit easier for us.) What an amazing time we had - totally unbelievable! I think we saw most everything that there was to see. (Actually, I'm pretty sure it's not possible to see EVERYTHING on one trip, but we sure tried our best!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Update and Request For More Prayers

Still no stamping time. But, I have another update on my dad. His lymph nodes tested positive for squamous cell cancer. He will be having a PET scan on Thursday. If nothing shows up, hurrah!! If they find more cancer, he will have to undergo seven weeks of radiation. I would appreciate any prayers that his PET scan is clean. Thank you SO much..

 Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Another Update

My dad's surgery is now scheduled for Monday. My sister was able to arrange her work schedule to be there with him and stay through Tuesday. I'll be sure to let you know when we get the results.

I had a little bit of stamping time this afternoon and was able to finish up the August calendar page I was almost finished with and also got September done. Yippee! That makes me feel a little better. I'm actually caught up:) I have 29 Christmas cards done, so I have about 50 to go. Not too bad. I hope to be able to start doing some stamping again soon! Thanks for hanging in there with me.
