Thinking of You for Jerry . . .

Happy Weekend All!
Last week I shared a link with you that prayers and encouragement were needed for a fellow crafter's brother in law who is suffering from brain cancer.  You can find all the details HERE on Donna's blog.  Today I wanted to make another card to send to Jerry in hopes of bringing a little smile and a little distraction from the obvious.

Jerry was (is) an artist so I was trying to be a little 'artsy' with today's card!
I'm sure he'll understand!  LOL

Inside view

I have had this Impression Obsession stamp for years and don't ink it up nearly enough.  Today was the day.  Then I colored it with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I was going to use it as the focus of my card but then thought how much better it might be with the Stampscapes image of an old cabin in the background ... and my card was born.

If you could find a few minutes in your busy day to bring joy to Jerry ...
I'm sure the rewards will be returned ten fold!
