Perfect Bliss in Concord Crush

Saw this beautiful card on the talented Dawn Aschefske’s blog and just had to case it.  Think hers is done in Elegant Eggplant but I chose to use Concord Crush and I’m really happy with the way it turned out.  Really enjoyed making this card.


This card looks more blue than it should in the photo and looks even better IRL.  The card base is Concord Crush and I also used Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla cardstock.  The stamp set is Bliss from the 2011 Saleabration catalogue.  I felt really ashamed when I went to use it and found that I hadn’t even mounted the stamps and used this set at all in the past 12 months!  I am now determined to work my way through all my stamp sets and make a card using each of them regardless of whether the set is retired or not.  My next card will be using Asian Artistry so watch this space!

I am still undergoing chemotherapy though on a different regime which means that I now have to go to the hospital for treatment every 4 weeks out of 5.  On the 5th week I have to visit the specialist so that is my routine for the next few months.  I keep hoping that they will decide to end it sooner as it is very hard and tiring trying to overcome all the side effects of the drugs.  The week I had ‘off’ at Christmas was lovely and it felt great to feel normal again so it was really hard to have to go back to treatment again.  However on the up side, my results have been very promising and am hoping that when they send me for another MRI scan that this comes back with good results too.

I also have our cruise at the end of March to look forward to and the specialist is going to suspend my treatment for the time I will be away so that I should be able to enjoy it.  Can’t wait!!

Very windy here this afternoon so hope you are all safely indoors.
