Cushioned in Comfort


The past week has been busy with the holiday festivities and we had a nice Christmas with my son who was with us for a week. Now things are "quiet" again and hopeful I can get back in my studio and create. There has been a high demand for card angels for Chemo angels so I have been trying to send a few extra cards out, they make such a difference to these people. I used an AMuse Studio set for this card and since it was for a male I went with the more masculine colors. I love to paper piece and the grey gingham was perfect for the chair and lamp shade, what coloring was left I used my copic markers, again NESTIES were used (love Nesties) a bit of bakers twine and the card was ready to go. Hope this lifts the spirits of the chemo patient.

I was lucky enough to see this in real life today, and it is fabulous! I love the paper piecing, and may need to borrow this set sometime! Beautifully done, dear friend! Enjoyed visiting today - seems like forever since I'd seen you! I'm keeping the ice bag busy tonight :( Bah! Thanks for sharing! P.S. If they'd let me, I'd be an angel....

I send my application in on line today, the New Year is a good time to do some thing positive with my card making, thanks for the encouragement.

I love it when someone know drops by which affords me the opportunity to visit their sight and oh boy...I'm loving your site and getting lots of ideas and inspiration. I feel a need to CASE this card fit for a man. A wonderful thing you are doing for some chemo patients.
