Ike's World challenge - Oct 1st

I'm here with some pretty amazing news!!!!  I made the very awesome DT over at Ike's World challenge!!!!  woooohooo! So very happy.  Just love Ike's images.  They are so inspiring and fun.  Love the darker ones as well... but those you will see on my other blog lol.

What's especially fun is that for this 1st challenge where there are DT involved we are playing with the great Awareness image.  This is to reflect the Breast cancer awareness month!

That was the 1st image of Ike that I have ever used!  I made a card over a year and 1/2 about ago.... you can see the post here.  I was going through a really really hard time as my MIL was losing her fight and as I was suffering... I came across Ike's post!  It was as though she was speaking directly to me.  I just had to create a card for my MIL with it and I'm happy to say she got it in time!

So yes this image really brings back memories... My MIL had colon cancer and lost her battle last summer.  But my family as been touched with a few cancers... My FIL is in remission from cancer (something related to his lungs... but not lung cancer), my dad from prostate cancer (he was operated a few years ago and last year had to undergo more treatements...) and finally my mom is in remission from breast cancer.  It seems that this one runs in the family... so I have to have my girls checked regularly now!  Yup we have been deeply affected by cancer!  I was happy to be able to share this with you.  I will be showing a few more this week for this special occasion that is October breast cancer awareness month!

So for my card I used some really pretty Hello Pastel by Prima papers.  I used my rectangle die from Spellbinder.  I added a little embellishment from Pebbles - Layered embellishment.  I used some of my neglected washi tape.  The sentiment was stamped on it... but that didn't go to well... I had to go over it with a felt pen because it was too light.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics.  Isn't she just stunning?!?

I followed this great sketch, this was the 1st inspiration for this card!  I just knew it was the perfect sketch for it!

  3. LOVE that card Vicky. My Mom had breast cancer so it is something that I feel very sensitive about. Congrats on Ike's DT. I can't keep track of how many you are on, awesome, you do a great job!!!

  4. I love what you did with the image this time as much as the last. I remember checking out that card just a short while ago too. Once again you have done Ike's image real justice. Your colouring is beautiful and I really like the layout you chose to go with. Unfortunately, my family too is no stranger to this devastating disease. Too many fallen members but thankfully a couple who are survivors too!

    Fabulous submission for your first duties on this awesome team. I am so happy I convinced you to apply and am soooooooo happy to be on another team with you. Even better, a team within the team!


  5. Gorgeous card. Beautiful coloring. So glad I stopped by. I thought you may have stamped the flowers on the sides, but now know that it is dp. Urg when the stamp is too light!
