Hello everyone! I haven't been on since Thursday night... I commented on blogs and tried to think good thoughts... but I was not in a good place. Yesterday was really hard for me. I'm trying to stay "tough" so that I can be there for my husband and my kids. But yesterday I had to come back home (couldn't handle work) and I broke down. I'm going to lose my Mother-in-law but she's more like a mother to me. This woman was the one who showed me how to do so many things (sewing, knitting, crochet, cooking,etc).
As I was looking at my blog read list... the 1st one that was there was from Ikes world. This great artist had a freebie.... and this freebie was a woman with a cancer ribbon! OMG I really felt like someone was there to help me... So I thought all day about this card. I want to send it to my mother-in-law tomorrow. I hope that it reaches her in time. She's doing a bit better which is great because her kids were able to understand what she was saying... But this terrible disease is taking over her body for sure. It's just a question of time. I just hope that she doesn't suffer.
I really love how my card turned out. I think it's the best CAS card I have done so far!!!!!
I will be sending it to Ike's world. I hope the artist likes my take on it. I used the brown ribbon to represent the colon cancer which is what started killing my mother-in-law 3 years ago. We were very lucky that she's so strong and decided to fight with all she had!!! We got those extra 3 years.
I'm entering in the following challenges:
- Paper pretties blog - CAS card
- Jacksons digital expressions - CAS family matter (I think that one is covered! family matters very very much!!! )
- Dutchdare-cardchallenges - For a special lady
- Ribbon carousel challenge - Anything goes with ribbon
I want to thank you all so much for the kind words!!! They really do help. Thanks for all my wonderful followers support. And sorry about the super long post... but it really help putting this into words.
