Rain or shine

Tonight we received really bad news... my mother-in-law who has been battling a terminal cancer for over 3 years had another cardio vascular incident this week (the 2nd in 2 months).  This time her speech is affected and after the analysis it was discovered that the cancer progressed to her lungs and liver.  She has a few days to a few weeks maximum to live!!!!  This woman was so full of life and such a fighter.  This is a terrible shock to my wonderful husband.  We are all taking this very hard... the kids (my 4 great kids) can't believe that they will be losing their mamy... 

Somehow I didn't know what to do with myself.... so I created a card that represents what I'm feeling for my in-laws and I really hope that my little angel can help send vibes to my mother-in-law to alleviate her suffering.
I used my beautiful Bugaboo angel no sunshine and paired her off with  a sentiment I got from birdscard.  That sentiment seemed quite fitting right now.  I colored her with copics and my stickles for the wings.  And added glossy 
accent to the bottom for the rain and on the umbrella.

I used this cute sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Catch the bug blog - the sketch
  2. Digi darlas - anything goes with Bugaboo or digi darlas digis
  3. Robyns fetish challenge blog - pastel colors
  4. Sassy cheryls challenge - April showers
I would like to ask all that are going to read this post to please keep my mother-in-law in your prayers!!!  So that she will not suffer.

Thank you sooo much for your support.  Right now this is really 

helping me cope with this.
