Joe's Cocoa




This is card 3 for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop
&
The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge


There is a story behind today's card.  My son Joe lives in Japan and has been there for some time now.  He served in the Navy for eight years and is currently taking college classes and loves the country.  However, he became quite ill over the past six months and we found out he had the same thing happen to his right ear that happened to his left ear before joining the military.  Cholesteatoma!  Basically it disintegrates the ear drum, the inner ear bones, and finally penetrates the mastoid, which is fatal.  Joe needed surgery right away and of course I could not fly to Japan to be at his bedside.  Heart wrenching to say the least.  Surgery went well but he has some complications and is still in the hospital after 12 days.  He video chatted me last night and looks much better than he did but it rips my heart out not being there for him.

He asked me what I've been doing lately and I explained making cards for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lover's Hop of course.  He wanted me to explain all about it and I obliged.  He then said, "Mom, make me a Hot Cocoa card ok"?  I said but of course.  We always say to each other, "You're my heart" and that's why I have all those hearts on the card.  The picture is some how flipped and makes it appear to be his left ear but it's his right.  So that's the story.  He will probably wince at me for posting his pic but I'm his momma and I can do whatever I want...lol

Love You Joe
You're My Heart


I also want to shout out a Thank You to Pamela Ho of www.fishydesign.wordpress.com for the inspiration for this card.  I cased hers from Mama Elephant's Blog Hop Day 2.

Thelma & Louise for Deb

Thelma & Louise Stuff for Deb

I have been fortunate enough to have a best friend of over 40 years now that has always been a sister to me.  She always jokes that we are destined like Thelma & Louise when we get old.  So, I thought this #Stamping Bella stamp was a perfect fit for Deb's Birthday card and Shadow Box.

Clarissa and Camille



Here is my last card for the Spring 2017 Coffee Lover's Bloghop.  I used another Stamping Bella stamp and it is called, Clarissa and Camille share a Cafe.  I also used an old embossing folder from Cuttlebug called, Spots and Dots which I think works perfectly with the circles on the mug.  I used glossy accents on the mug circles and white Nuvo Crystal Drops on the dresses flowers.  I just started using those Nuvo drops and find many of my bottles aren't working.  Not sure why but need to remedy that issue.
