I Started on World Cardmaking Day...
What's ridiculous is that there is no coloring on this card AND I'd already drawn up the sketch a few days ago, but this card still took me into today, the day after World Cardmaking Day!
I picked up some Me & My Big Ideas breast cancer patterned paper for a project and decided I couldn't just let it rot in my paper collection, especially since I kept reading about Link Up for Pink! I drew the bird in my artist buddy Ernesto Cuevas's style. (I didn't forget after all these years! Yes, the bottom should be longer and pointier...) And I used a great sentiment from TLC Creations.
There really is something to be said about staying positive and believing that something good is coming in the midst of bad things. As some of you know, a young (20 when diagnosed) family member of mine recently underwent treatment for osteosarcoma. She was sad and missed her friends, but she stayed her happy self overall. Thankfully, she's had a couple of clean scans and is back in college!
Someone who may need your help to stay positive during the next few months is Betty from Simply Betty Stamps. If you haven't read her post about her son, it's here. I'm sure something big will pop up for her family in the next few days. We crafters are pretty awesome and like to help each other out in rough times... :D
This card will be linked to Yolie, Celeste, and Gaby's Link Up for Pink and TLC's weekend mini-blog hop.
**Something that's helping me be positive right now is the fact that The Outlawz 1000 Member Party is less than 24 hours away! We're having challenges, games, and blog hop and more! We have great prizes, too, including one $100 GC to Oozak and another to SCACD!
