One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

The "Zebra Print" is the Carcinoid Cancer Color

On Monday November 26 I will have surgery to remove my lower left lung where a carcinoid tumor was discovered.  I have already been receiving nice gifts from friends and I wanted to use the Faith and Hope stamp like I did for my daughter to send out thank you cards.  My tag is actually part of the card and is attached, so it can not be used as a bookmark...but I found some zebra print cardstock in a 4 x 6 pack and die cut the cancer ribbon.  This is what I came up with for my cards:
The inside has the poem:  Cancer is so limited.....I love that sentiment!  And I love this bible verse, too!  That's it for me tonight...I have to go get my 5 year old grandson and have a sleep over with him while his mommy and daddy are taking a couple of days to rejuvenate their hearts, souls and bodies at the beach...this cancer can really take a lot out of the whole family.  My daughter is doing so well, is a picture they sent me from the beach just yesterday:


  1. I am so glad to see you crafting again. You have been on my mind a lot lately. I've been keeping up with what's going on through your other blog. Praying for you and your family and sending you lots of hugs. One of these days I'll give you a real one :)

  2. Nice to see and hear something from you! Great foto from your daughter!
    Hugs Cornelie

  3. Beautiful and stylish and very meaningful.

  4. Nice to see and hear from you Colleen you have been on my mind a lot. Glad to hear that you all are doing good under the circumstances and a beautiful picture they sure enjoy themselves.
    Hang in there.

  5. Dit is de eerste keer dat ik "The "Zebra Print" is the Carcinoid Cancer Color" open en
    ik ben prettig onder de indruk door de relatie die dit artikel behelst met
    kleurplaat printen.
