Sending Prayers -- for MHKDesigns

It's March 1.  Tomorrow is my LAST chemotherapy!  Six of six!  It will be so good to get it behind me.  Then, I have to get through the next 10 rough days of side effects and low white blood count.  After that, I'll be on my way to recovery and living life to it's fullest again!!!!

It's March 1st.  That also means it's the start of a new challenge on the MHKDesigns challenge blog.  The challenges are always Anything Goes if you use an MHKDesigns image.  There's also an inspiration picture/board if you choose to use it, or if you don't use MHKDesigns products.

I kept my card very simple this time, letting my Silhouette Cameo do the majority of the work.  Coloring is getting difficult.  I have quite a bit of neuropathy in my fingers and feet from the chemo.  I am hoping this is temporary, but time will tell.  In the meantime, I am finding ways to create without much coloring.   This card is an example of that:

The  3D butterfly on this card, colored with Copic markers, then fussy cut, is from the MHKDesigns Butterfly Wisdom digital stamp set.  The sentiment is from the MHKDesigns Get Well Flowers digital stamp set.

As mentioned above, the card was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, using a file I found in the Silhouette Design store. 

MHKDesigns Challenges go all month, so you have 31 days this month.  Choose your favorite MHKDesigns image, make some delightful, and join in the fun!

Here's the inspiration picture, if you are interested.  

Come and join us!  We have great prizes, and I'd love to see what you make!
