Oh, my, Betty and Cindy...Lindsay's story brought me to tears!! I'll be mailing this off later today. Thanks for the great colors today and what a wonderful idea to combine the challenges!!! This is also for last weeks DDC challenge hosted by Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) to make a card or project around a quote you find on the Quote Garden site. I chose my inspiration from this wonderful quote by Christopher Reeves "Once you choose hope, anything's possible". Also, (2) you must incorporate some representation of time in your design. My sentiment speaks to tomorrow and I also stamped images of a clock on my "quilt" panels" which is for da Mudder's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. We are going to a quilt show and need to show that snooty Aquilta the Hun that the teapartiers can do anything she can do only better!!! My sewing machine bit the dust so I had to add my stiching with the ribbon and I also added a little piercing, flowers, a button, silver pearls, and silver cording. The frame image is from Nina Brackett's Lovely Labels and the sentiment is from Gina K's Inside Out set. The frame was stamped with Melon Mambo and the flowers were colored with Copics. TFL and have a great day!!

Wow, Joan, you covered a lot of challenges in this gorgeous card. I really love this sentiment and the way you incorporated the quilt idea into your design. I just couldn't figure that part out late last night. Beautiful work.

That sounds like a great quote to put on Linday's card - a message of hope for her tomorrows. I really like the stamped clock on the green - I was looking at it thinking my Sugar Rush doesn't look like that.
