I discovered the Winter Wonderland Christmas Challenge blog recently and started playing along. So my first creation is for this week's challenge. It is a sketch (doesn't have to be Christmas ... taking a short break from the theme) so I decided to make mine an "encouragement" card.
My friend's daughter is going through Radiation Treatments for Thyroid Cancer ... she's doing well but I wanted to send her a card just to let her know she is in our thoughts & prayers.
My base card is Rose Red and I've stippled black over the background white panel (to tone it down a bit) then used scraps for my other panels. On the rose red panel, I have layered a piece of SU rose red dp which was punched the Martha Stewart loop punch then overlayed it with Mrs. Grossman's sticker lace. The main angel image if by Magenta, paper flowers created using the MS flower punch (using same SU dp) and the center flower was a white Prima that I colored with a black marker. All half pearls are by Kaiser. My sentiment if from the SU "Thoughts & Prayers" set. (click to enlarge images) This was great fun and I'm sure Sarah will love it!!
You really MUST check this out and hopefully take part!
Winter Sims is having a card drive for St. Jude's Hospital the whole month of January over on her Winter Wonderland personal blog. Please click on the link for all the details.
Here are a few cards I have ready to go postal tomorrow and I hope to make/send more this week. What a great idea and I'm thrilled to be able to hopefully put a smile on the faces of those that are less fortunate than myself!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by ... all comments are greatly appreciated!! Hope your weekend was wonderful & filled with fun!! Happy Stamping!!
