What's especially fun is that for this 1st challenge where there are DT involved we are playing with the great Awareness image. This is to reflect the Breast cancer awareness month!
That was the 1st image of Ike that I have ever used! I made a card over a year and 1/2 about ago.... you can see the post here. I was going through a really really hard time as my MIL was losing her fight and as I was suffering... I came across Ike's post! It was as though she was speaking directly to me. I just had to create a card for my MIL with it and I'm happy to say she got it in time!
So yes this image really brings back memories... My MIL had colon cancer and lost her battle last summer. But my family as been touched with a few cancers... My FIL is in remission from cancer (something related to his lungs... but not lung cancer), my dad from prostate cancer (he was operated a few years ago and last year had to undergo more treatements...) and finally my mom is in remission from breast cancer. It seems that this one runs in the family... so I have to have my girls checked regularly now! Yup we have been deeply affected by cancer! I was happy to be able to share this with you. I will be showing a few more this week for this special occasion that is October breast cancer awareness month!
So for my card I used some really pretty Hello Pastel by Prima papers. I used my rectangle die from Spellbinder. I added a little embellishment from Pebbles - Layered embellishment. I used some of my neglected washi tape. The sentiment was stamped on it... but that didn't go to well... I had to go over it with a felt pen because it was too light.
Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics. Isn't she just stunning?!?
