Inspired by Nicole Heady's kite card, I created these last week and gave the support ribbon balloon to my friend with breast cancer. I also made purple versions for a friend with lupus in the family and another whose mother is going through chemo for pancreatic cancer. I didn't have enough time to take pictures before running to meet them for a girls' night out. Apparently lupus, pancreatic cancer and Alzheimer's all share purple as their colour of support.



I created the images and sentiment in Illustrator and printed on TE choice snow white cardstock before colouring with copics. The white background panel is sponged on the edges with chalk ink. Loved Nicole's layout and created my own version of stitching around the focal image. Here's another photo of the card I still have in my stash for someone who needs a 'lift.'



The support ribbon balloon, my shark, my rainy day umbrella and other digi images I've created may be available soon for purchase. I'd like to hear your thoughts first though...are you interested in these digi images and what file formats work for you?!!

Thanks for stopping by...

Awesome cards, Nancy, and such a worthy cause. I know they'll be a blessing to the recipients. I hate that dang cancer!
