You are in my Prayers...CR84FN35 2nd week 50

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, August 6, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , ,

Happy Sunday! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Today I have a special card to share for the 2nd week of the CR84FN35 Color Challenge but first I would like to thank all who have joined in the fun thus far and to all who leave such kind comments :)
The beautiful photos of inspiration used to create the graphic are courtesy of Leslie from a creative mintI repeatedly profess, making masculine cards are not my forte but I needed to make this card for my 49 year old brother who is battling terminal Stomach cancer hence the Periwinkle ribbon. I am at a complete loss of words and my heart goes out to him. Simply said, You are in my Prayers Albert.
My brother was an avid outdoorsman so I know he will love this sweet bird from JustRite Stampers Back Yard Birds. I stamped the image on a piece of patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Collection then using chalks, I added a bit of color. A technique I haven't taken time to use in what seems to be a million years!
 I colored the ribbon periwinkle/lavender since that is the color of ribbon that represents Stomach and Esophageal cancer awareness.
Thanks so much for visiting and if you think about it, please keep my brother, Albert and ALL the other Cancer patients around the world in your thoughts and prayers :) Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun. For some new inspiration, please visit:
