This card is for my friend in America who has recently been diagnosed with Stage 1 cancer. She is about to go through a dose of radiation treatment which involves her being in isolation for a few days, and then unable to have any physical contact with her little girl for a couple of weeks. She is being so positive about it, and cracking jokes about glowing in the dark, but it must be tremendously hard.
I drew the glow-worm myself, not being able to find any clip-art or stamp glow-worms out there. His tail is painted with fabric paint which glows in the dark ;-) and the verse is computer printed. The papers are all from Basic Grey's Lemonade collection, the ribbon was a gift from Georgina (thanks again!) and the butterfly was punched using my market-stall punch from Hong Kong, and eyeletted using my new Crop-a-dile. Everything is inked with Dew Drop Cosmic Copper ink, and the copper matting is from a box lid that I saved.
I'm entering this into these challenges: Basic Grey's animals (a glow-worm is an animal, right?) The Pink Elephant's polka dots, a bow and pink, Quixotic's butterflies, A Spoonful of Sugar's freestyle, and this Lili of the Valley sketch:
