A card, and a donation freebie

Hello Bloggers! I just wanted to do a quick post tonight to ask you for some help for Betty from Simply Betty Stamps. Her 17 year old son Christian was just diagnosed with Stage 1 Throat Cancer and she's offering a really cool digi image in return for donations that can really help their family in covering some of the medical and travel costs that are coming their way. You can read more about it Here.

So this cool guy is what she's offering everyone who donates to help them. I have 3 boys and I couldn't even imagine what they're going through right now. Any little bit helps, plus you'll be getting this fab image too! 


And speaking of Simply Betty Stamps, this card I made is featuring one of Betty's stamps! It's funny. When I started making this card, I hated it! It took me like 4 days of coming back to it and tweaking it and I STILL didn't like it. So I kinda wrote it off and left it in my little corner on my desk thinking I might come back to it one day. Well tonight I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do, so I pulled it out and started working on it again, and I ended up LOVING it!  It's amazing what happens when you walk away from something you're just not feeling the love for, then come back later...



I colored her with my Copics, which I'm finally starting to feel like my husband didn't totally waste his money on when he bought them for me for Christmas 2 years ago! lol 



I've used a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for this card!
Thanks for stopping by!
