This week the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! is to make a Vintage card or other crafty creation. Vintage is definitely one of those types that is outside my comfort zone and yet I'm thrilled when I have the chance to give it some more practice. My card is based off the MOJO Monday #281 sketch (see below).
I've made this card for my husband's niece who found out a couple of weeks ago that she has Hodgkins Lymphoma. She has started her first round of treatments but is waiting to find out if the cancer has gotten into her bone marrow. We are all praying for her like crazy that the answer is "no" and that she will only have 3 more treatments to go. We are told that this is a highly curable disease, especially when caught early. This little gal - who is a mom to three very young kiddos, has the most positive attitude and strong faith of anyone I've seen in a long time. She keeps us updated on Facebook quite often thankfully. I wanted her to know that we are continuing to pray for her and to stay strong.
Thank you for stopping by to visit me today. It would be great if you decided to join us this week at ATS&M and share your vintage creations with us. This week the ATS&M challenge has another fabulous sponsor and prize that you could win. Pop on in and visit the rest of the DT here won't you? They don't seem to struggle what-so-ever with the vintage theme as their creations are amazingly beautiful. Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D
