Hope Whispers

Hi again, I'm glad you're stopping by,  it makes me so happy when you come by to visit here, why, you're like family!   :)   Today I did a rather clean and simple card, left off all the bells and whistles I guess you could say. 
I just thought this card would make us stop for a minute and just think.  Some are saying, I have breast cancer, I'm fighting like a girl to win the battle, I'm taking chemo,  I am on radiation, I have the pain, I'm getting tired.  Some are ready to just give up.  But then the thought of, I've gone this far and why give up now.  You need to believe in Hope, it strengthens.
My card image was generously donated by Oak Pond Creations.  I fussy cut the gloves, hung them with a platted cord, and embossed the card front, used a brayer with pink ink to color the highlights and then cut the oval shape out to hang the gloves to remind you that you are a fighter and are not giving up.

Kimberly, artist and owner, of Oak Pond Creations has designed a digital image for Link Up for Pink. All 2012 sales will be given to the LINK UP FOR PINK Relay for Life page. 
I would like to take a minute to thank Kimberly of
Oak Pond Creations for this very generous donation to Link Up for Pink which is for such a fantastic cause.
So please, go to their site and buy your special digital image to make your donation. 
I hope you enjoyed my post today and hope you come back to visit soon.
So until next time,
Take care and God Bless
