Thank you all so much for the words of condolences and comfort. Reading all your comments and emails has been wonderful. Nothing will take away the pain of losing my mother but it's amazing to feel that out there, in our beloved land of blogging and crafting, are so many friends who care and are there for me.
I apologize that I haven't been responding to all of the emails and comments - most of the days I'm just not up to much chatting.
I decided to express my feelings the best way I know. Here's the result.
Make it Colourful was to colour on anything except white card kraft, vellum, fabric, tissue paper (candles), wood etc. I spent a long time colouring that image with Prismacolor and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. It is a work of love. Although I know there are many mistakes there - I will learn from these in the future.
Crafts and Me and the swing is a contribution from Make It Crafty store towards Help For Katie campaign.
Katie was diagnosed with stage 4 Stomach Cancer before Christmas and is currently undergoing her only option which is Chemotherapy. The campaign is collecting money to help with her treatment and give some treat to her two lovely boys. A lot of wonderful artists have donated images toward it.
Jak Heath is also running a competition on her blog for the cards using the images from Help For Katie set, there are some lovely prizes so do check it out.
I am not going to be rambling about how I made this card. If you have any questions about the materials/techniques, just ask me in comments section and email me. I'll do my best to answer.
