FSS You are in my thoughts

Hello my dear friends...I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I thank all of you who have been so kind to leave me some love and thoughts on my creations. Today's card was created with a heavy heart. Over the weekend my 36 year old niece came to me with bad news...she has been diagnosed with cervical cancer. Being a cancer survivor myself, I am devastated for her...but she is a tough young lady and she will fight this as I did and will beat it. She knows she will have my support and encouragement throughout her battle. My family has been hit hard by cancer...lost both my parents within 3 weeks of each other to the disease, I have had it, one of my brothers is also a survivor...and now my dear niece. Please say a prayer for her...this card was created for her. The image is one of Tracey's new images that are available in the store NOW! This image as with many of Tracey's beauties comes colored or uncolored! You have to check out these wonderful images. The sentiment is also Tracey's. I added a little glimmer to the image with Stickles but that was about all...I just hate to take away from the beauty of the image. The embossing folder that I used is Flourish and Floral #2 from Sizzix, the purple rhinestones are from Pizzazz Aplenty and the corner punch is a Paper Shaper punch. I hope you like it...kind of simple in design but serene. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by...I appreciate each of you!
