It's Wednesday which means it's Heartfelt Creations Inspiration time again!
But before I share my card, I would like to apologize for not posting more these days or visiting all my wonderful friends. I didn't realize how much I would miss my blog world! Sometimes life takes some twists and turns that we weren't expecting. As I shared before, my friend has been diagnosed with colon cancer. She has no close family and doesn't drive so I am the one she depends on for all her transportation. The trips to the hospital and nursing home have been 1 hour each way so we spend a lot of time on the road. Today we will see the doctor to schedule her radiation. Next week they will insert the port to start the chemo. Please pray with us that she won't get terribly sick from all the treatments.
My heart goes out to everyone who has to deal with a major illness. I wish I could reach out and give each of you a hug!
For my card today, I used the gorgeous tea cup from the 'Old English Garden" collection. I stamped the smallest and medium size tea cups on shrink plastic and then colored them with markers. After shrinking them I hung them from a heart clip which I slipped through the seam binding. The sentiment is from the new collection. Love the font on this one! Below you will find all the detailed instructions on how I made this card.
