Happy Sunday!  Today I have a card to share that was made just because... I rarely get to make those.  Actually it does have a purpose but it was made because I needed a card for someone who is leaving our area and making a new home for her family in sunny Florida.  She's shared lots of love with me during my journey so I wanted to send her on her way with some good thoughts too!

This is a digital Mo Manning image I've had for a while now that I've never colored.  I was sorting through my computer the other day and found that I have a ton more.  And this one was perfect for my need.  Woo hoo. 

I've printed the image onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored with copics.  I also added some shading around the edges with Tim Hotlz Distress Inks.  Then I matted it with Bella Kraft.  I had fun adding little extras like crochet lace, a silk ribbon bow and Bella's baubles.

And now for a little health update...I had great news on Friday.  My scans are showing that there isn't any cancer activity at this point.  Major happiness there.  I still had to have chemo on Friday and have at least one more planned - maybe three - but at this point those will be preventative and not combative.  Tears of joy flowed that's for sure!  I really can relax a little! 

Now everyone have a great week. Thanks for stopping by.

Three wonderful creations since my last visit, Cath. This one is delightfully pretty (as are all of them of course) and I very pleased for you that your scans look healthy too! Hugs, Lesley
