Sara England Releases

Some new stamps in the Cornish Heritage Farms Sara England line were released last week.

This one is called The Honeymooners. I used the direct to stamp coloring technique and my Memento markers. First as black labs, next as chocolate labs. The second card is one layer. You can do that with dye ink markers and have no ink bleeding through to the inside of the card.

And I peeked this one a few weeks ago, Gone Fishing.

My husband and I met the surgeon yesterday. He reviewed the ct scan taken last week which showed no cancer in any other areas, so that's good. The tumor he has is located in a high up section of the colon which is a more convenient location for him when doing the surgery. During the surgery he'll be able to see if the cancer has penetrated the colon wall and if any chemo will be needed afterwards. He was not able to book the surgery until 12/15, which is a little disappointing because all of the pain/pressure this tumor has been causing which brought John to the doctor in the first place is still there and now he's got 2 more weeks of it. But I think it will go quick.

I'm excited that it's the 1st and Tim Holtz's 12 tags have started. I actually have some of the stuff he's using for the first tag. None of the clear crackle, though. That stuff looks cool!

Supplies: Cornish Heritage Farms Sara England Honeymooners, A Walk In the Woods, Cursive Expressions, Classic Essential Expressions
