Best wishes with french foliage

Card: very vanilla, early expresso
Ink: old olive, early expresso, cajun craze
Stamp set(s): french foliage, silhouette sentiments
Accessories: early expresso striped ribbon, old olive grosgrain ribbon, linen thread, circle punch

I CASEd this from Dawn awhile back and had to share it here...!  I love Dawn's work, and this project was no exception!  It lent itself to the french foliage stamp set (my fav!) so they got a bit of work out.  I randomly stamped the main panel with the different stamps of the set, layered a square panel with very vanilla, then a circle that has been stamped.  I just had to add some texture with the ribbons and the wee tag that holds the sentiment.  Simple but has some 'wow'!

On a personal note, I have now completed 3 weeks of treatment, so I'm half-way through!  Yay!!  I have noticed I'm a little more tired than usual, and my hair has begun to fall out where the radiation beams are (yikes!), but otherwise I'm doing well.  I'm so thankful I'm not working at the moment to have the space to rest and recover and process everything.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!

  3. Anna, I loved this card when I saw it in person. The photo really doesn't do the vibrant colours justice. I wish the weather would improve so we can take better pictures, ah?!! Half way through - yipee!!

    Heather - you have met Anna before! At stampcamp in Rotorua. Anna came along with me!
