2 happy thoughts and hope cards

I have a online friend who was just recently DXed with Colon CA, and another that just got the news she if CA free finally (Breast CA)

so for their Holiday cards I used this FANTASTIC Ribbon Angel image from McMahon 5 designs
they give away a free ribbon image the 25th of every is to help us to remember to DO our monthly self-breast exam. However of course there are many ribbons for many Cancers and Diseases, so these ribbons are quite versatile.

Without further comment, here are my two "Hopeful Holidays" cards

 Both are made on pre-made Holidays cards from Last year by DCWV, I love the greenish aqua ones so much, I used a lot of them last year. The Breat CA one above I added a piece of torn paper I liked. Both images colored with BIC Mark Its!, then the images were cut out, and attached to the card, as well as the computer generated Sentiment. the I used all kinds of Stickles by RANGER.  Hubs liked them, so I am guessing that is a good thing, LOL!

I have a dear friend that is a 25 year survivor of breast cancer, so any projects like this just touch my heart as I am sure they will your friend. Sending lots of positive thoughts and prayers to your other friend too! Both are FABULOUS!!! Good Luck in the TSB monthly contest!
