Copic Musketeers Challenge

Wow the challenge over at our Copic Musketeers blog (  ) was really hard this month.  We did a card for a man using a sentiment from Create with TLC. ( )  I had a hard time coming up with an image to go with this until I came across this image from Image-e-nation. ( )  This image seemed perfect to me.  Come on by and check us out.  There are a few more days to enter our challenge.

A card I made touched a friends heart.

I made this card a while back.  One of my clients here at work came in and commented on how much it reminded her of her son.  Since I didn't make it for anyone particular, I passed it on to her.  Her son has been fighting a really aggressive bone cancer for close to half his life now.  When I gave her the card he had just gone into remission again.  Last fall, his cancer was back and one doctor they went to basically told him he needed to go figure out how he wanted to spend what time he had left.  They were contacted by one of his doctors in Cincinnati about a clinical trial he might be able to get into.  It was some type of experimental chemo treatment.  Today she came in and told me he is once again in remission.   She returned this card to me and told me what it has meant to her over the last year.  While they were going through some dark days after being told there was nothing else that could be done for her son, she placed this card in the window of her kitchen cabinet.  She looked at it several times a day and reminded herself that she was not going to give up on her baby.  She continued to look at it the whole time he was in treatment.  She just knew God had something wonderful planned for her son.  She liked the sentiment of Happy Day.  She said she knew it meant something special.  When he went back into remission, she decided to bring the card back to me that maybe the hope it brought her could be passed on to someone else.  I am just amazed at how my card has touched her.
