Fight Like a Girl! for Amy Doodle Stamp Co.

It's Tuesday, and this is turning into my day to post for the new Amy Doodle Stamp Company.  I have a more serious card to share today.  Amy made a set of 2 digis, and a portion of the sales will go the MPN Research Foundation.  
Cancer has affected many people.  My mother died of a malignant brain tumor 9 years ago.  She struggled for 1 1/2 years with it.  I learned about courage, and hope, and letting go without loving less.  This card is for HER.

At one point in her treatment, all her hair fell out, and she wore a scarf just like this one -- same color, matching her blue eyes.  Later, her hair grew back, and it was super curly.  She loved it that way! It was about the only 'nice' thing that happened -- fun hair!
Here are the 2 Brave Chick stamps (1 set)...

The ribbon-shaped card is a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.
Brave Chick was colored with Copic markers, then fussy cut.
Designer papers are from Basic Grey. The sentiment is part of the Brave Chick stamp set.
Here's the Copic colors I used:

I miss you, Mom.
Please visit the Amy Doodle Facebook page each day this week to see what this talented design team has done with this thought-provoking stamp set.
