Well, I had some rather terrible news last night. 

I a very good friends who's aunt has been diagnosed with cancer. She beat it a few years ago but it has come back within the last year and this time there is nothing they can do for her. She is now in a hospice and from what they say she really doesn't have very long and is in a lot of pain. 

She was always so full of life, so chatty, just lovely.

I also found out that my friends mother also has cancer (although they managed to catch it very early). She is also a lovely lady. 

Anyway, there isn't really much I can do but I thought it would be a nice gesture to send them both a card each. I made these today....

Sorry about the second picture, I was in a rush and the battery for the camera was about to die.

Ta Ta for now.

Alex, these are both stunning. Love the flower pot best of the two. How did you create the flowers, is it a punch?

So sorry to hear about your friend's aunt. I hope that your friend's mother is able to beat it.

Two beautiful cards that I'm sure they'll appreciate.

Thanks for playing along with the challenge, hopefully next time will be under better circumstances.
