"Awareness" Freebie- This is for you Brian!

 McMahon Five Designs has a Monthly Awareness Freebie- digital images and SVG cut files are in the store, all of which can be found HERE at the M5D website. 
   I love the Pumpkin with the HOPE in the center- I colored the image with Copics and added Sakura Gelly Roll pen for shimmer.
  I used Green for my ribbon as my nephew Brian has been diagnosed with Wilm's tumor and has had his kidney removed and has just ONE MORE CHEMO left, then he is DONE!!!  (That will be this Tuesday!!!). 
  He will be going to Disney - he is one of the lucky kids that Make a Wish is granting his Wish.  He is a Huge Cars fan, and they just opened up a Cars area at Disney in Florida.
   I played around a little more with the sentiment and made some background strips. I colored the images and layered up the image- the leaf on the left is popped up with a tiny piece of dimensional. The ribbon is from last fall...from the Target dollar spot. 
     If you make a card, please drop a line and share it- and add it to the gallery at SCS- Sue is randomly picking M5D or McMahon Five Designs tagged cards to win gift certificates to the store.

Yay Shelly - these are fabulous - love the way you have coloured and mounted the image on the first card, and repeated the sentiment on the second.

This is just great Shelly! Love the way you used that pretty pumpkin and your coloring is just great - as always!
Hugs to little Brian too! One more chemo - that's just great. I know it's been a long road for him and his family.
