Fight Like a Girl...

Hey everyone, i'm here to share with you a little sad story. I'm good friends with a co-worker who has someone very close to her that was diagnosed with Cancer..i'm not sure what kind it is called but green represents this type. I just had to make this card for her to give...This young girl has type 2 and is only 15 yrs old...they started aggressive treatment only two days after she found out..What a shock to the system for their whole family..I'm wishing her the best and i'm sending prayers everyday her way. She is very positive and is taking it one day at a time even though she is so sick from the treatment. I can't wait to sport my green wrist band that they are selling to help pay for all the expenses...Send a prayer her way if you can and lets have a look at my card...



This cute image was a freebie from Krista Smith of Saturated Canary and was perfect for this young girl. She had very long hair and just cut it short like this image. She just didn't want to see big clumps of her hair on her pillow...how sad...brings a tear to my eye every time i think of it.. Coloured with promarkers, added a couple eyelets and used a little ribbon with some bling. I wasn't too happy with the green in the hair as it looks better with black hair but this girl has brown hair so that's why i went with it.. My sentiment was made by me on my computer...used a couple die cuts, punch and we were done..Simple card this time around..Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving great comments...

Kim, so sad to hear this! I am a pediatric nurse, and I still have to go to a dark, quiet place when one of our patients is diagnosed with a terminal disease! I will pray that she beats the odds, with G-d's help and our prayers all things are possible.

Thanks for sharing this project with us! I am sure this will lift her spirits and those of her family.

What a beautiful card, and so thoughtful of you to make it for your friend to give! Such an awful diagnosis, especially for one so young - I'm sure this will help her to know there are many people thinking of her! Hugs, Roxy.

Hi Kim,

Lovely card despite it's for a sad situation. Cards like this are very encouraging for people that are going through a hard situation. I'm sure it will be treasured. I do love image, the color combinations and sketch. Thanks so much for participating on a Jackson's Digital Expressions challenge.
