Here is a closeup of the ink-antiquing. I went over the sentiment with Copics as well, just to add a little dimension.
Now, onto my Important Request:
My precious birth-mother, Mama Kathryn, has been diagnosed with cancer. I am going to spend a week with her in Idaho starting the 2oth of July. She is a believer and is holding fast to God's promises but it would really bless her to get some cards from all of you talented people out there. If you can and you want to, please send her a card of encouragement, especially ones with scripture, to remind her of God's love and faithfulness. I know it would just mean so much to her. If you have a blog of your own, feel free to pass on this request. My other request is that you pray for her, add her to your church prayer list, etc.
Here is her info:
Kathryn McGinnis, P.O. Box 193, Hope, Idaho, 83836
Thank you in advance for doing this for me and Kathryn.
