Vintage Birthday - and a Couple of Updates

Leslie Miller makes the most beautiful, feminine cards! She sometimes uses digital images and has shared the link to Digital Two for Tuesdays. I downloaded several images and have printed some to color. This one can be found here.

I colored it with Copics. Because of the shading in the printed image, I didn't have to do a lot of shading with the markers. I matted with Vintage Violet cardstock (retired, from Stampin' Up!) The patterned paper is from a matstack from Jodie Lee Designs. I stamped the sentiment (from TPC Studio) with Vintage Violet ink.

The updates: my mom had six weeks of radiation after her surgery for skin cancer. She had a follow-up PET scan and I went with her to the oncologist a few weeks ago. The oncologist told her she had cancer in her lungs and had six months to a year to live. She had a biopsy on his recommendation - not to find out IF she had cancer, but to find out what kind of cancer it was. The biopsy showed no signs of cancer. So that was THE BEST NEWS possible, but it sure made us upset at the oncologist!

Also, our fourth grandson (and fifth grandchild) was born yesterday at 11:25 a.m. His name is Wyatt Ellsworth. (My dad's middle name is Ellsworth.) He has Down's Syndrome, but he is very healthy and doing awesome!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I had no idea that your Mom had been ill. Thank God she is going to be just fine. What a frightening experience all of you have been through.

Congratulations on your 5th grand baby boy. :)I love his name.

As for your card.......it is gorgeous Lynette. You certainly have lots of talent making both paper cards and digi cards.
