Polly and Poppy's First Christmas

Hello, I wanted to share some photos of Polly and Poppy our new kittens. They don't know what to think of the Christmas tree and decorations. We have a big Balsam Hill tree but knew if we put it up with the hand blown ornaments it would be a disaster so, Dean went and bought a 4 ft. pre-lit tree and some unbreakable ornaments. We put it on an end table and bunge corded it so they couldn't knock it over. We put a tree skirt to cover the cords and decorated the tree. They sat and looked at it and didn't bother it but littlr Polly, bless her heart, can't help herself batting the ornaments! We found 7 on the floor the other day. I just pick them and put them back on the tree. Poppy is standing in front of the tree. Polly is laying under th tree and helping me fix my front door wreath. I call the little tree Polly and Poppy's tree. Eventually when we can put up or big tree I will decorate the little tree with kitty toys like mice, fish, birds and balls and I will make a tree skirt with kitty paws on it. Are Polly and Poppy spoiled?
This is Polly helping fix the wreath for the front door.
Thhis is Poppy looking lovely by her Christmas tree.

Poppy again. Her two front paws are Hemmingway paws (extra toe on each foot).

Poppy looking pretty. I couldn't get this to enlarge for some reason.
"I'm so tired"!

Winter Wonderland Step Card

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. I finished my chemotherapy almost 3 weeks ago so I'm trying to do a little more. I still go for bloodwork every week and go see my Oncologist next week.
   I managed to make one Christmas card, for my 5 year old granddaughter. She lives in Florida and has become a little obsessed with Winter. During our many daily phone calls or Granny-o-chats (what she calls our video chats) she wants to hear all about Winter and snow, so I decided to make a Winter card.
I made a step card and used some cute background paper I've had for several years. It's a pretty light blue with shiny white dots that look exactly like snow.
I used a couple of dies that I purchased from Aliexpress, the cute snowman and the beautiful snowflake arch.
I cut two layers of plain white cardstock and one of white glitter paper for the snowflake arch, I glued them together and that was much easier than I thought. I then cut a piece of clear acetate and attached it for stability.
I cut double layers for the snowman and snowballs. I cut another arch of acetate for the snowballs so it looks like he is juggling snowballs.     I heat embossed the sentiments in a shiny red. Inside I heat embossed Merry Christmas in the same red.
     I love how it turned out! I was a little shaky after I finished it but it was nice to be able to work on an idea I had and finish it!
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my card.  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Yes, yesterday I had my last chemo treatment! Now, I still have to go every week for blood work and about every 8 weeks to the cancer center for them the clean and flush my port and I go see my cancer surgeon in February but, the chemo is over! It seems like it's been forever with the bad reaction to Taxol and neuropathy, severe fatigue, bloog platelet transfusion and blood transfusions, and shots to boost my blood count; the bloodclot in my lung and blood thinners. My surgery was June 9th and I've been dazed and in shock ever since I was told tou have ovarian cancer and the mass is as large as a baby's head! Thank God it is gone! Please God, do not let it come back! The Dr. said there is a 30% chance but with the Grace of God it will not! The Dr. said I have to be watched for 5 years. I want to thank my wonderful family and friends for you prayers and support and ask for continued prayers and support.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great evening!

Hugs Pam
