CCC Pink and Green Challenge and a RAK Event!

Happy Tuesday, Everyone! Thanks for stopping by today!  I have a fab project to share today! Our challenge at Creative Card Crew is a color challenge! Pink and Green!  The sponsor is:


  Crafty Addicts and Heather has given us some fabulous flowers as the prize:





What a great prize!  My card is made for a special reason...

One of our dear DT members at Whimsy Inspirations has a sister who is terminally ill.  She has dealt with some troubling news, finding out that Cancer has spread through her body.  Lisa has asked that we all make a card for her sister, Jayme, and send it to her to cheer her up and make her smile.  Lisa also mentioned that she loves frogs, so if we could do something with a frog, it would be fantastic.  To read the whole story, click HERE.  For an ADORABLE FREEBIE by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps, created in honor of Jayme, click HERE.  

So here's what I made:

I used the Whimsy Frog and colored him with Copics.  His eyes were colored green and then glittered with green sparkly glitter!  The lily pad is a Prima Hydrangea folded. The sentiment is my sad attempt at a play on words...instead of "a hug for you," I did "a frog for you."  Hope it at least makes her smile :)

To participate in this sweet and most thoughtful cause, please go to Lisa's Blog to do you part and make someone's day.

Thanks for stopping by.
