Hot stuff

My husband was joking the other day about some of his pain medication for his cancer making him "goofy".  He was telling the visiting nurse that he was thinking about getting a tie dyed shirt and a lava lamp.  Now, coming from my husband who has NEVER smoked a cigarette or tried any illegal drugs this is hilarious. Meljen's Challenge is an ABC Challenge and with my name being Lisa - I chose lava lamp and layers.

Such a fun card. Lisa! I love the humorous take that both you and your husband have during this difficult time. I guess that saying - laughter is best medicine must hold true in this case. It's always inspiring to hear from others where they get inspiration from and you have inspired me today. I am thinking of you and your husband during this time.

This is such a fun card. Love the layers and the fun sentiment. The background hearts paper is a wonderful choice paired with the pretty floral fishtail. Kudos to you and your husband for continuing to see humour in the midst of difficult times. It can be so healing and can bring such closeness and joy yet can sometimes be elusive. I wish you both the best. Thanks for joining our Glitter and Gloss challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
