Rain Showers . . . .

Bring Oldie But Goodie Flowers at Bugaboo Stamps!  =)

Well, we had two days that it didn't rain here - unfortunately, 2 days is not long enough for the deck and fences to dry out and be painted!  UGH!
However, the Flowers, Grass and Garden are in FULL BLOOM!!!
And THAT is where the inspiration for today's card came from!  =)

We have a friend whose granddaughter was diganosed with Cancer this past February - Carly is 17 and a true fighter.  Even with months of Chemo, a Surgery this week and Radiation on the heals of all of that, she continues to battle through this.  After my dad's battle, there is something to be said for cards that come in the mail and the uplifting support they provide a broken spirit. 
Knowing you are in peoples hearts, even when they're too far away to be with you, is an amazing feeling.  I try to send both Marge and Carly cards on a regular basis to remind them we're thinking of them and that they're in our prayers daily.

So today I hope to provide a little support and brighten Marges day with this beauty!
Image - Bugaboo Stamps "Mini Set - Flowers" Collection
Papers - Kraft, Bazzill CS and K&Co Flower Print
Coloring - Copics
Tools - EK Success Border Punch & CM Corner Rounder (had to blow the dust off this baby!)
Extra STUFF - Hero Arts Sentiment, Chestnut Roan Color Box Ink, Dimensionals, Taffy Smooch & BLING

Something really cool I did was to COLOR my bling to make it match. 
WAY COOL (I'm easily entertained & excited)!  I'm a HUGE fan now of making MATCHING Bling!! =D
