Breast Cancer Awareness Card ~ Hang In There

Last year I asked the very sweet Diana from DL Art where she got the ribbon
embossing folder she used on her card and guess what this sweetie did?
She couldn't help me with locating a folder but she sent me
an assortment of ribbon embossed card stock.
I used one of those for my card base. Thanks Diana.

Breast Cancer Awareness Card ~ Always On My Mind

I have another quick post today.
I made this card to post on Wednesday then got real sick.
I stayed home from work Thursday and today.
With the help of my inhaler, decongestants and my sweet pillow it will pass.

My Mom lost her battle with cancer 24 years ago in November.
She faced her fight with unbelievable courage.
Mom this one's for you. You are always on my mind.
