Sweet Chick

There is a challenge over at Delightful Inspiration from the Heart about to end tomorrow night!!  You have a whole month to create something with their free image, and of course it takes me the entire month to come up with a creation!!!  Anyway...here is what I came up with!  I used their image "Flower Pot Chick", colored it with a combination of Spectrum Noir & Promarkers, The image was punched out with Marvy punches, the    DT background paper was from DCWV Blossom & Butterflies Stack, the  Sweet Chick sentiment is from a My Creative Time stamp set, framed with the Spellbinder's Decorative Label's One die cut.  What a wonderful mix of brand name items!!  The white ribbon is from Michaels and the yellow buttons are inherited from my late father's dry cleaning stash!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

My son-in-laws mother has breast cancer.  She is taking chemotherapy treatments at this time, and then the doctors will decide if a lumpectomy is in order, or total breast removal.  While undergoing these treatments, because her immunization is compromised, she has basically needed to stay away from anyone who might be sick, including the six grandchildren we share.  She has had to miss one of their baptisms, birthday parties, and probably our oldest grandchild's upcoming first communion!  They love her very much, and I'm sure it is total torture for her not to take part in these milestones.  Just recently her cell count was good enough to let her keep them overnight.  I'm sure they were all thrilled!!

Anyway...I wanted to send her a card, and had some stamps in mind that I could use, just didn't know where to start. Then I came across a video on how to make a pocket card that Joy from Obsessed with Scrapbooking made and decided it was perfect, and very easy to make...just a few folds!  Joy has lots of great how-to videos on her website, and I go to them whenever I need help with my Cricut Expression machine.  You can find this pocket card video on her blog under the video tab.  All the papers used on the pocket and tags were from the Martha Stewart Playful Pink pad.  The border on the front of the pocket is a Martha Stewart punch.  I cut all the tags on the Cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  All the inspirational sayings and Hope ribbon are from Our Daily Bread Design sets called "Hope" & "Bookmark Verses", with the exception of the birdhouse tag.  I just printed that one myself on my computer.  The ribbons & pearl are from my stash.  She knows her faith will get her through this awful time, and I just thought she might like to use the tags as little bookmarks!  Hope she likes it!!  Sorry for such a long post.  Thanks for stopping by!
