I made this card for a friend of ours. His sense of humor is stuck on preadolescent poop and fart jokes. I found a website with free printables using the poop emoji for cards from Uplifting Mayhem. None of the sentiments were exactly what I was looking for but my son told me this joke and I figured it was perfect for the card. The sentiments (joke) is computer generated by me and I used the corn clip art I had on my microsoft work program. Overall it's a pretty basic card but it had everyone laughing.
I put myself on a spending freeze at the beginning of the year. I did pretty good not spending any money on craft supplies until I found some cute stamps at Simon Says Stamps. This adorable birthday cow stamp just seemed to hop in my shopping cart. How did that happen?
Anyway, she is super cute all dolled up for a birthday party.
Last year our world was turned upside down when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer.
Since most people with colon cancer are diagnosed after age 50, Doctors recommend that people start getting colonoscopies at age 50. Colon cancer is preventable when people do their screenings. There are some warning signs but my husband did not have any of the warning signs or symptoms. Our oncologist told us that most of the young people who are diagnosed usually are already at stage 4 due to lack of symptoms. There is no cure for colon cancer, only treatment.
My husband is a CANCER WARRIOR.
We choose to be positive and consider him to be LIVING WITH CANCER.
It is now 11 months post diagnosis and he is still going strong. Most people who meet him don't realize he is sick. He receives chemo every other week at the cancer center and then goes home with a pump for another 48 hours of chemo. He has had very few side effects from the chemo. He will continue with this regimen for the rest of his life. He continues to work everyday. He owns his own construction business and continues to schedule projects. In fact, he has jobs lined up for the next 2 years. In addition to the construction business he also farms. I don't think anything, especially cancer is going to stop him from doing the things he loves.
