Hanging On By A Thread

Cancer is a very scary thing, I know, I am stating the obvious.

When I was first diagnosed I had to go through a battery of tests to make sure the cancer had not spread. Xray's, ultrasounds, bone scans. Waiting for the results each time was unnerving, and the minutes seemed like hours. I remember not wanting to be alone, feeling like I couldn't make it through without someone else. I literally felt like I was hanging on by the tiniest of threads.

Support through this difficult time is so important.

That is my inspiration for todays card.


Supplies used: cardstock - white, kraft; patterned paper - LUFP; washi tape - We R Memory Keepers; ribbon, floss, bakers twine - LUFP; stamp - By A Thread itty bitty stamps by Unity; ink - Momento; chipboard buttons - my stash.
