Thanks For Caring





















Hello, and a happy weekend to you, I created this for today's IC224.  I chose the first sushi cake as my inspiration.  This is for the Card Patterns Sketch, 55 and for The Color Throwdown Color Challenge, CTD84.  I used PTI Blooming Baby Bits image with a verve sentiment, "thanks for caring" from the set Thankful Hearts.
I have not been around this week, my dh had to have open heart surgery, he is fine.  He had to have a valve repair because of a birth defect.  It has been a tiring and stressful week but he has come through the surgery with ease.  I will be making lots of thank you cards in the coming days, lots of friends, family, and the hospital staff have been by our side.  We have had lots of support and many many prayers going up for us.  I will be able to be home with him for several weeks so I hope to get some stamping done during my down times.  I will have a blog giveaway Monday, be sure to check back!  Enjoy.

  2. Oh, it's so good to see you back in the stamping world! You and Gary both have been in our thoughts and prayers this week...Deb kept me posted initially and I know this was stressful for both of you! And I do love your card, BTW! :-)

  3. Firstly Teresa, your card is beautiful with the way you worked those colours. I love the stitching and the row of tiny pearls.

    Secondly, my prayers are with you and your family through this stressful time. So thankful that surgery went well and I'm so delighted that you will be able to spend that time with your dh.
