Hope


Hi friends.  I am playing along with CASology and CAS(E) this sketch for today's card.  The cue word for CASology is Hope and when I think of the word Hope, I immediately think of Breast Cancer and the many other cancer's out there.  Breast cancer awareness is near and dear to my heart though because my sweet Mother-In-love lost her battle 3 years ago.  She fought long and hard.  I thought of her the whole time I was making this card.  I miss her!!  This one is for you-Mimi!  



I loosely followed the sketch.  :)  
I am also entering this in Simon Says - Anything goes.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Crumb cake
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink
Stamps:  Strength & Hope
Accessories:  Pretty in Pink ribbon, oval framelits
