Tilda and her Teddy

Hi dear friends,
Today I have Tilda with her Teddy. I'm not sure if that is what she is called. I couldn't see her when I looked. Maybe I should be writing it on my stamps.
I have colored her with my ShinHan brush markers.
The flowers I made from the Marianne craftables die CR1201
 Other products used:
The frame is also a Marianne Creatable die LR0112
The embossing folder is one from Crafts- TOO You.

Scooter tilda

At last another card. this is Scooter Tilda coloured with ShinHan twin brush markers. I am still getting used to them an need lots of practice.
The paper is from a pd called Hippie Chic (thank you Ruby). I also used memory Box dies called Madera corners and  a Spellbinder frame.

My DH is doing really well. He has some pain of course but never complains. A good patient.

Update on Doug for our friends

Just to let you know that Doug had his lung operation yesterday. He had two cancerous tumours removed and there was no sign of any other cancer. He looked so well after the operation but last night he wasn't feeling so well. I rung the hospital this morning and he is much better so I am happy about that.

Thank you for all your prayers. I really don't think either of us would be here without the prayer support.
It is so appreciated. We both have had secondary cancer that has popped up a couple of times. Each time we have scans we pray that it will be clear. We have been very fortunate that we have been able to have operations and chemo to remove the cancer.

We don't know yet if and when Doug will start chemo. Hopefully he won't be too sick this time.
      I took this photo for his daughters in New Zealand just  after he  came back from his operation.
He has his horrible hospital gown on. A nice shade of lilac.

Bear Hugs

My card today is made with the Magnolia Hobbie bear. Isn't he cute?
I used Promarkers to colour them. Leaves are a mixture of punches in my stash. the flowers are die cuts.
I distressed the edges with Antique Linen. MS around the corner punches were used as well.

My DH has his appointment with the surgeon next Tuesday so it shouldn't be long before his operation.
the waiting is always the hardest time.

Anyhow here is my card.
