First of many

Good morning! Looks like summer is gone. For the last couple of days we've been having a yucky weather and the temperatures aren't high anymore either. But I guess that's normal, since September is just around the corner. 

Today a new challenge went live at the Sweet Pea stampers blog and the theme for this challenge is "Fantasy". So ink those fairy, mermaid etc. stamps and get creative. :) Before I show you the card I made I want to tell you something about it.

The card I made for this challenge is very special. Why? Because it's the first (of many more) that will be going to my sweet friend who is fighting leukemia again. She suffered from this terrible disease a couple of years ago and she won the battle. Now, after being leukemia free for 2 years, leukemia returned. I was really shocked when I heard the news. She is one very, very sweet person, full of life and optimism. And not long ago she also became a mummy. And now this ... :( Because she lives on the other side of the world I can't go and visit her, but I still wanted to do something. So when I heard they were having a garage sale to raise some money for the treatment, I immediately wrote her, asking if I could do something. And she asked me if I could send her some cards and/or jewelry for the garage sale. Of course I said yes! And this is the first card that was made especially for this occassion. I hope Britney will like it.

I used Ching-Chou Kuik's Fly butterfly stamp and colored it with distress inks. In the wings and on the dots of her dress I also used some diamond Stickles. The papers I used are from Provo Crafts and from Nature collage kit by Artsy Collage and I used scissors and distress inks to distress the edges. Lace, gems and doily are from my stash and flowers are from various companies. I embossed the banner that's peeking from behind the image with Cottage floral embossing folder. The butterflies are made with my craft punch and the dies I used on this card are from Marianne design and Spellbinders.

  13. Cebelica, what a gorgeous card you have made. I love the colours and embellishments you have chosen. More importantly I admire the reason for making the card. I am so sorry your friend has gone through this once already and now again. It can be such a cruel world at times. She's very lucky to have friends, whether ones she can see of what I call "cyber" friends, as you will help her get through this difficult time. Take care, Kym xxx PS Sorry for the lateness of this post. It's taken me a few days to get into commenting after my holiday
