Update on Dr. Chris McCarthy
(See prior post on our friend who has been diagnosed with cancer). This family just can't catch a break. The latest news is that Chris was DENIED coverage of the oral kemo pill (at the rate of $22,000 per month). This drug is like the gold seal of treatment for cancer patients and proves to be valuable in extending their life span. I cannot believe how this family keeps slammed with bad news. Please please please continue to pray for him and his family and contact me if you would be so gracious to be able to send a card his way. We have to keep the power of prayer and faith strong. It makes my bad days pale in comparision, sure makes me stop and realize I don't have problems!!!!!

More Cards Made

I'm still trying to accomplish a card a day to our friend Chris, (see prior post). It's not easy coming up with a different card to lift his spirit each day. I truly thank everyone who is helping us send him warm wishes. We never know when life will throw those horrible curve balls our way, we can only continue to pray that a miracle will happen and hope will arrive. PRAY on.

I need help..........PLEASE READ.........
A dear dear friend of ours (Dr. Chris McCarthy) has just found out he has bone cancer and it's very aggressive and in the later stages. If you follow my blog you will see that I've been working on wedding papers, well those wedding invites were to be for his daughters wedding. This family is the most giving, loving and doing for others type of family. They received this horrible news on Friday and Saturday, Chris broke 3's already beginning to hit him hard. Chris and his wife have three children...(one boy and two girls) one just bought an house, one is graduating from college and was to get married June 14 and one is graduating from high school in a couple of months. This was supposed to be a year of this horrible news has taken that away. The wife (Donna) asked me to send Chris cards and good notes to let him know he has friends....since I know so many people that make cards, I'm hoping my freinds and fellow stampers will help me out. If you can send me an email for his address or send me an email and send me cards, I plan on sending at least one card a day to him. We want him to know that we all care and folks are praying for him. He has been a doctor for many years and has always helped others!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me grant this one little wish to his family during this painful and gut-wrenching time. I truly appreciate it.

Wedding Invitations

If you don't hear from me for a while, you will know what happened, I've been hired to do all the wedding papers for a good friends daughters wedding in June. I'll be crankin this stuff out between now and then as it's a fairly large wedding. This invite uses Stampin Up Vellum, Blush Blossom, Shimmery White and has been heat embossed with the French Flair background using Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and a piece of salmon ribbon with a double heart charm tops it off. Not sure you can see the embossing but it really sparkles and makes this look so "weddingee"...LOL. The bridesmaids are wearing cameo coral tea length dresses so all should go together well!! If I manage to get all of this done, whew!!!! ENJOY the next few pictures of my project. I made several samples for them to choose from and this was the set they picked out.

Wedding Program

These programs took me forever to figure out, but they are done in ivory with vellum overlay and cameo coral backplate, topped off with salmon ribbon from Michaels. VERY tedious but pretty and will match the girls dresses perfectly.

Wedding Donation and Table Assignment Card

The bride and groom have elected to donate to a charity instead of buying party favors (what a GREAT idea) and this card will be given out at the door of the reception and will also tell the guest what their table number is. The guest actually get to choose between two different charities (ignore the writing on this, this was just the template, not sure which the two charities are yet) but this is a great way to do it instead of wasting money on party favors that folks leave or throw away. These were made with Shimmery White from STampin Up and Cameo Coral.
