I Brake for Roses!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for someone special.

The verse is from EVERY DAY PHRASES.

My cousin is battling melanoma and after going through years of treatments she decided to create an organization to help first time cancer patients.  She has a 31 business (they sell bags, purses and storage solutions for those who don't know) and her goal is to present each person with a bag filled with comfort items at their first chemo treatment.  She collects items like tissues, snacks, candles, socks, blankets, journals, crosswords, peppermints for upset stomach and cards to name just a few.  Some of these items are for while they're at the treatments and some are for when they are home recovering.  She has been through this so many times so she knows exactly what people would want and need.

Even while facing her own battle she has made this mission...Micheles Mission her main focus.  I am helping out by making handmade cards with inspirational sayings.  This is the first one that I made.  This will go inside one of the bags and hopefully will brighten someone's day a little bit.

I colored this with Arteza Real Brush pens which are a watercolor "marker."

  1. This is just so pretty. What a vibrant color for the roses and the saying is just right! Do you need more cards for this?
