Bloggers Challenge-Flowers, RAK request and Awareness freebie

 Our Bloggers challenge this week is flowers- I combined the challenge with a card for my Brother and his wife- they have just learned their 4 year old son has Kidney Cancer.  He will have surgery tomorrow to remove the kidney and they will determine if he needs radiation in addition to the chemo he will need.
  McMahon Five Designs has a series of free Awareness ribbon digi images- this is the new image and the freebie will be posted on my sidebar when it is available.  I colored with Copics and added Creative Inspirations Paint to the yellow egg stars and the green ribbon- which is the color for Kidney Cancer. The sentiment and plaid paper is from Create with TLC and the Green and background paper is from Stampin Up.
If you would consider sending him a card, please drop me an e-mail for his address @ Shellymc2 at Comcast.net

My thoughts & prayers go out to your family during your nephew's surgery and I pray that he won't have to endure chemo. Kids are so much more resilient than adults, but it helps that he will be watched over and cared for by our Savior.
