This is sad card today. I've made this for a young mother of two girls age 7 and 11 who has just been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. It is unfortunately not a get well card as it has spread to her brain and bones. I find Crafty Secrets stamp set "Seaside" image and verse soothing.

  The shells are also part of this set. I took a stylus to the back and shaped the shells to give them a 3D look and then coloured them with copics and added some stickles. the scene was coloured with a combination of distress inks and copics.

Thanks so much for dropping by

  2. A gorgeous shell and twine frame for this beautiful lighthouse and its bittersweet message! Lovely work, Elizabeth!

  3. Liz, not only is the coloring on this card incredible, the wonderful addition of that twine adds such a great beachy feel! You are so amazingly talented! So thankful to have you on the team! I pray for a miracle for this sweet young mother....this card will bring her comfort and solace, I am sure!

  4. What a beautiful card Liz and I love the way you added the twine 'frame'. I just wish the story wasn't so sad
