Sun!

Hi there!

I have two cards to share on this beautiful Monday morning. Both inspired by the challenge at Addicted to CAS where the theme is : SUN!



The second one uses the positive from the first cut. It's a card for a very brave 18 year old girl, the daughter of friends of us, who was diagnosed with leukaemia about a month ago, and is receiving chemotherapy at the moment. Just a little bit of sunshine and a word of encouragement to her.





                                                      

Here is the sentiment of my first card, as always you are welcome to use it!



Thanks so much for visiting me today!

O, jou kaartjies is albei pragtig, vrou, maar my hart is nou sommer seer om te hoor van julle vriende se dogter. Ons sal nie noual kan verstaan waarom sulke hartseer dinge gebeur nie, ne, maar ek hoop en glo dat sy sal gesond word!!! Jou kaartjie het sekerlik haar dag gemaak!!!

Love these sunny, happy cards, Hannelie! Sweet sunbursts. Love the hearts on both cards, and especially on your second card. That vellum is so perfect for this card! And of course, polka dots tickle my fancy to the max!! Love these. Bev

Two amazing card Hannelie. LOVE the color combos ... and that you've used the negative for one card and the positive for the other.

How difficult it must be for your friend's daughter ... I'm sure your card will bring a smile to her face.
