ColourQ #157

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

 
Arielle chose a special color scheme for just that reason.
The T-shirt in the inspiration photo, among others, can be purchased here.
 

 
Although I haven't been directly affected by breast cancer, our family has been through its share.  Ryan's mom passed away in March after a year's tough battle with a rare form of cancer.  My mom is currently going through chemo treatments for lymphoma. It's been tough, but we haven't lost hope!

 
For this card I used the same stamp from the Harlequin set that I used on my other card to create another pattern that I really love.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today. 
I hope you'll join us this week at the ColourQ!

  15. That's so tough about your mom Kara, I pray that she heal. I am also sorry for your family's loss. My mom went through breast cancer treatments this year also-it's emotionally draining. Your card will definitely bring hope~
