Coffee of the Day - Maple
It's absolutely gorgeous here! also our big Maple Festival is going on, so lots and lots of people visiting our little town. first year in many that the sun is actually shining for the festival, so that is nice. Ryan is in the bathtub races tomorrow morning, so that should be fun. it's weird to not have anyone marching in the big parade. that's what happens when everyone goes and graduates from high school! ;) since we only live a block from the town square, I can smell the yummy foods when I step outside my door. oh my gosh, all of the maple aromas are divine! we let friends park in our driveway so they can just walk up from here. traffic gets really jammed up, and the dogs pretty much spend the entire weekend barking at all of the people walking by the house.
anyhow, I wanted to share a card I made for several challenges. main reason I made it though is to work on my stash of cards to take to my oncologist's office when I go again for the card box I have set up there. When I was there the other day, the box was almost empty. Can't have that! :) so I want to make plenty more cards for all of the folks going through chemo to grab if they want to. hard to believe it was a year ago that I was going through all of that myself. my hair is still growing in. it's all curly wurly now and looks so goofy. some of it is almost about 3" long! almost! tee hee! probably closer to 2", but I'm like the little toddler who's birthday is ALMOST to the next one.....
this fun boxing gloves image comes from Oak Pond Creations, papers are Fancy Pants Time for Spring, ribbons are all May Arts, and sentiment is Create with TLC. the bright pink ribbon is really tied in a bow, but I cut it off in the scan. it got all smooshed in the scanner anyhow....faux stitching finishes the card.
