365 Cards - Day 94

Today's challenge at 365 Cards:  Take one 365 challenge theme from March, April & May and make your own combo challenge.



Day 11(March) - Lovely Landscape.  I went more figurative than literal, with the sky and a garden being represented.  Artistic license...
Day 55 (April) - Pins & Needles.  The pins are obvious, the needle used was a bodkin to lace the pink ribbon through the lace ribbon.
Day 85 (May) - Flora & Fauna.  Roses & Butterfly.


I made this card for an old friend ~ a girl I used to babysit back in the day, who is a young woman now with kids of her own.  She was just diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma.  She's in for the fight of her life, for her life... and I don't know what to do besides pray and encourage...    I prayed the entire time I was making this, every cut, every glue dot I asked for a miracle.  We love you, Sheila... and your family.  May you be strengthened by the love that surrounds you and may you find health and peace. ~ C
