Look Forward with HOPE....

As we focus on Breast Cancer Awareness every October, there are also many fighting other cancer battles. Patients, their loved ones and caregivers are all on a journey together that is as difficult as any they will ever face. The Mountain Plains Crafters Design Team are all posting cards for Cancer Awareness today. Please go to their blog to see what we all have created.

 I used the Unity Stamp Company sets "...all about HOPE" and "Imperfection is Beauty" on this card. The lotus petals from left to right represent : Gold/ Childhood cancers, Dark Blue/ Colon cancer in memory of my brother, Teal/ Ovarian cancer, White/ Lung cancer in memory of my beloved mother, Plum honors caregivers who fight the battles alongside their loved ones, Periwinkle/ Esophageal cancer in honor of Dale Kemper, and Pink/ Breast cancer both in honor of and memory of many friends. The lavender card base represents all cancers. 

This card showcases one of my all-time favorite stamps by Paula Best . I also used My Mind's Eye washi and Queen & Company twine. It was made to honor several friends who are fighting breast cancer and also in memory of those who did not survive.. When I look at the writing on the image, I think that we need to have the DREAM that there will be a cure for cancer someday and BELIEVE with all of our hearts that it will happen... Support those you know who are battling any form of cancer. A small act of kindness will be greatly appreciated. Deliver lunch or dinner, drive someone to an appointment, listen if they need to vent or just be there with a smile or a hug. Thank you for visiting my blog . I always appreciate when you stop by and share in what I have created..


  1. I love both of your cards. I love how you have the tulip colored for each of the different cancers. I really like the image on your second card.

  2. Ok, I didn't know that I was still logged in as Shami... well, I still love your tulip and how you have it colored, and the cute image on your second card.

  3. I love them both, Deb! Beautiful coloring and I still chuckle that we came up with the same idea for one. ;)
