CFC73: For The Girls- Create a Clean And Simple card that celebrates

This card is a tribute to my best friend, Colleen of 54 plus years which is the theme for this week's CAS-UAL FRIDAYS Challenge.  We have been through a lot together, but this is one of the most serious things we have had to go through.  About 3 or 4 weeks ago her oldest daughter Dina a 35 year old mother of 3 young children was diagnosed with lymphoma which is treatable with a 70% chance of recovery.  She will start Chemo next Friday.  And if that is not enough, Colleen had a biopsy on a spot on her lung, which is also cancerous.  She will have some more scans for 3 days this week, but the oncologist thinks her's is contained and it can be removed.  We will know more on Wednesday.  Pray for her.  But she is truly a blessing to me.  Such an upbeat person and so generous with her time and such a loving person.  I don't know what I would do without her.  She also shares my love or should I say obsession for card making.  Now, on to the card, I used PTI's Sweet Life and the sentiment is from All About You.  The ink is Memento's Grape Jelly and Lulu Lavendar and PTI's Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse.  You can access CAS-UAL Fridays blog Here
