Elvis King of Hearts

There is a new stamp in the Cornish Heritage Farms Elvis line being released today, King of Hearts.

I made this one full of glitz and glam. The playing card center has a coat of Martha Stewart Clear Coarse Glitter, and the red foil paper is from American Crafts.

For this one I went a little more casual, but still had to de-hoard a Prima Bling Guitar.

So my husband had his first round of chemo this week. He went in on tuesday and the chemo was administered through a pack which came home with him and he had to wear for 48 hours. The main side effects seemed to be fatigue, sensitivity to cold, and numbness/tingling to his fingers and toes. It wasn't too bad when he first got the pack but as the time went on it got worse, especially the last few hours he had it in. I was worried that he wouldn't sleep well or would roll over on the pack and disconnect it, but he didn't. He made it through and now we know what to expect. And he gets 1 1/2 weeks off until the next round. The oncologist told us that the surgery to remove the tumor was the hard part, now we're looking at an investment of time. And he was right.

Happy weekend, everyone!
