Fighting With Mom

The day before Mother's Day, my mother shared with me that she just found out she had Endometrial Cancer.  After I left her house, I went directly to my favorite local stamp store and did a little retail therapy.  We are several weeks beyond that day and things are looking up.  Most all of the family members have shaved their heads, including my sister!  I just can't...and I know my Mom understands.  So, I'm going to have to do my thing and that is make cards.  Enter the current Paper Smooches Designer Draft challenge and this card that has been rolling around in my head for a while.  I used a couple of colors that seem to be associated with Uterine/Endometrial Cancer and the ribbons.  I'm not sure yet what color is specifically for her type of cancer and I want to surprise her with this card.  I think I will send this off tomorrow when I sit down to pay bills.  It will cheer me up and I hope it will cheer her up too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Toni, as I was commenting on your FOSTV card, I kept getting a peek of those fighting gloves and came to see what it was about.

Oh, I know that was a shock to you to find that out about your Mom. I'm so glad things are looking up and hope your spirits have been lifted, too. I'm sure she will appreciate the card.
