Verve's Beach Party 2010 Challenge

Verve Stamps has a Release tonight and they are sponsoring a challenge over on splitcoast stampers and you can find it here. It's been a busy week but when I am not running here and there I found time to make the 5 cards for the challenge. There was one color challenge and 4 sketch challenges.
The color challenge is to use shades of orange, aqua, and green. This is my entry for that challenge.

The sketches are shown below




On a totally different note, I am participating in Relay for Life tonight. I feel that it is so important to raise money for research and to help families impacted by this terrible disease. My son was diagnosed in 2007 with Hodgkins and I have many friends, family, and co workers who have heard those words "you have cancer" or have lost loved ones. If you have never participated in Relay I encourage you to find your local relay and start this year. The first lap at our relay is taken by survivors, and that is always a large group. The children lead off and if that doesn't touch your heart........small children who have faced so much in their little lives. Then mothers who are carrying babies in their arms, who are survivors. All ages, races, sizes, cancer doesn't discriminate!
Then after dark there is the luminaria lighting. All around the track where we walk are luminarias in memory of, or in honor of someone who has cancer. The field is darkened and all those luminarias shine lighting the night. It is sobering, touching and beautiful. So if you would like to join us in the fight
this is a site for an online donation,  Or join your own local Relay.
