Ornament Card

 This card is one I made shortly before my cancer diagnosis and I had never posted it so I thought today was a good time to share it. I used some mirror and glitter card stock on it as well as an embossing folder.


I ran the mirror card stock through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then added the sentiment over the top. The evergreen bough is a Diemond Die, the ornament and sentiment is from Gina Marie Designs and the Crazy Double Running Stitched die is from Cutplorations. Below is a close up showing how the mirror card stock shimmers.


I had another wound vac change again today and I did a bit more healing. So keep your fingers crossed that will be the case every time. LOL Tomorrow I see the oncologist. And, then Friday another wound vac change. So I am busy! Today I wrapped a few gifts too as well as made another Christmas card for one of them. Well, that will do it for me today. I have to plug in and get my batteries charged. I wish you all a great evening and stay healthy.

God bless, Verna

Fabulous card. Love the colors.

The words "Wound Vac" brought back some bad memories for me. However, they really do help you heal. I'm praying for you. [Bunny]
