Happy Friday! This week, the Twisted Sister Challenge was issued by Tater, and I am quoting here "All righty then!!! Today's TSC is to make a beach scene, no people, just beach life, water creatures, sand, etc. This is in honor of the folks who live on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and what they must be having to deal with right now. Oh, and one more rule........NO P I N K!!!! So there!"
Now Phyllis, I want extra points this week, 1) because I completed a challenge, finally! And 2) because I did not mess with your rulz! See? I can be good! Lol. This was a great challenge and I enjoyed doing it.
I also love to do cards with a purpose. This card is for Mark, an 11 y/o boy who is looking at a two year round with chemo. Please read about Mark Here, and keep him in your prayers. This card seems a bit mature for an 11 y/o, but I hope the scene can take him away a bit, and that the words will give Mark and his parents hope.
Everyone is welcome to join the TSC, just add TSC0611 to your key words so we can enjoy your work! Thanks for looking!

Pat I love this; the reason you made it, the person for whom it is intended and especially the message it brings to Mark. One of the most precious gifts a person can give to another is HOPE. Bless his heart for what he must face and bless yours for doing this for him. Beautiful!

Ohhhhhh Buttnik, this is simply gorgeous. Perfect for a boy/man any age!!! It is so peaceful and one could just get lost in its beauty. If my computer was outside I would have the complete experience of my history with the ocean. It is spitting rain, windy and cold. Conditions always found at the ocean except it is not rain but ocean spray. The Pacific Ocean is always cold. I always laugh when I see people at the beach in swimsuits and practically naked!!! I am always there with my long pants and parka!!!
So very kind of you to send this to that little boy and that is what you are...kind and thoughtful!!! tfs.
