D'Arcy's Diaries perfect image xx

Well AWOL again I'm just so bad!!! lol

Here is my card that I made for my friend Kerry who lost her mum a week last Wednesday after a short battle with Cancer. Back in July I made a a get well card and a just because card for Kerry to give her Mum the second one was because she had just been diagnosed and Kerry loved giving her my cards because they always cheered her up.

I thought this image from D'Arcy was just perfect she is called "Time to Think" and can be found here.  Coloured as always with my pro markers and added some stickles.
I actually made a 6 x 6 Topper but when I went to stick it to the card is was too big!!!
Papers are First Addition and can be found here at Natalie and Amy's.  Beautiful pearls added to the corners.
The sentiments are from Kaisercraft and the border punch is from EK Success.
Added Retro punched flowers in the same papers and a beautiful punched leaf with a soft blue pearl center.
A side view.

Before you go please pop over to Live and Love Crafts where Sandy has this candy!!

Because October is Breast Cancer Month "Think Pink" Sandy has put together this must have "Pink" Candy.  

It affects old as well as young, women as well as men, rich as well as poor…
Cancer. The dreaded C word. 
Most of us probably personally know someone who has been affected.
In my case it was a very close relative who 9 years ago was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through chemo and radiation and she also had the mastectomy. She fought hard and she won.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and here on the LLC Blog we wanted to do our part to increase awareness of the disease by creating in PINK. As most of you know, the Pink Ribbon is the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.

I have just lost three people one was Kerry's Mum and the other two family members (Man and Wife) who lost their lives less then three weeks apart and know the devastating effect it has on the family left behind!!!  

This is such an amazing cause which everyone should always get behind as we never know when it may effect us. 

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and thanks for popping by!

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxx

This is such a beautiful card - these D'Arcy's Diaries images are perfect for this kind of occasion. In fact, I really must purchase some more of those images.
I'm sorry to hear of your friend's loss - it will be two years in December since my husband's Mum passed away when breast cancer returned.
Sending heartfelt sympathy.

Chanelle, what a gorgeous card which will mean so much to your friend. Life can be very cruel at times and we can be reminded of this on a daily basis. After my accident that meant I had to leave my beloved catering career aged 19 I applied for over 100 office jobs but no-one wanted me despite my 8 O levels. Eventually I got a job and to this day I still don't know why I was taken on as the other applicants could type and I couldn't. Sadly I saw in the local newspaper yesterday that that boss died on 7 October aged 62. I owe him a lot and will never forget him. Hope you are keeping OK. Take care, Kym xxx
