CBCC Tuesday #17

I found a fabulous challenge this past weekend at Created By Courtney. The challenge was to make a Christmas ornament.

A while back, I found a great blog that showed using the little $1 acrylic blocks you get from Michael's as the basis of an easy Christmas ornament. Fabulous idea huh? Unfortunately, I don't remember where I saw it, so I can't give credit. If you know where I might have seen it, please let me know.

It's not the best, Mia was "helping" me, lol. And I'll make another tonight (I have tons of those little blocks), I promise!

On a personal note: Please keep my husband & I in your thoughts today. We've been trying to get him qualified for a stem cell research project (harvesting his own stem cells) to increase the blood flow to his legs.

Today, they are going to admit him to the hospital & give him meds to protect his one remaining kidney (the other he had removed because of cancer). Then tomorrow, they'll put another stint in his abdomen to help increase the blood flow down to his legs. We really need this to work. He has so much pain when he walks, and since we've been down this road with his mom, we know how bad it can get.

Thanks ya'll! And have a great day!

Adorable clear block ornament. the only other place I have seen them is at Archivers scrapbook store.
Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog, it was nice of you to visit!
Your little girl is just a DOLL!!!!
I do hope your husband gets approved for the stem cell harvest, my Mom did that 2 years ago, and it saved her life!
You will be in my thoughts today!
Best of luck!
