Sending Positive Thoughts

There are two people that I know that are going through a very tough time right now with chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery due to a very unfair cancer they have. Why does it have to be the good people? So here are a couple pocket and tag cards that I made that hopefully will give them a little smile.

This 1st one is for the mother of friend from the Bitten By the Bug design team...

I added a couple drops of Glossy Accents to give that fresh morning dew look:

Inside the attached tiny card:

It's a little hard to read but it says Laugh Often, it's a cut from the Beyond Birthday cartridge, I've used it twice now and have discovered that from now on I should stick to a solid cardstock to make it easier to read:

Does this help you see it?

I didn't have to but I embellished the back of the tag because I made a boo-boo when I cut the tag, for some reason I thought I needed two and I used this great double-sided paper so I figured I might as well us it!

This one is for a friend of mine at work who finally had to take a leave of absence due to the toll of the treatments has had on him. It's a good idea to do that so he can focus on getting healthy and spend time with his wife and children.

Now I tried to keep this as manly as I could but I used a double-sided patterned paper and loved the olive side but the other side has a pinkish color to it, so I added as much brown to the rest of it:

Inside the attached tiny card:

Brown buttons, brown ribbon think it helps to make it more manly??? I don't know...

I decided to make the same boo-boo I made with the other one and embellished the back of the tag on this one too ;p

Hopefully a recipe to help cure cancer:
