I've mentioned in a few posts below that I made cards for my friend, Jan, who has cancer and crocheted blankets for cancer survivors. Jan lost her fight with cancer on Monday morning.
Jan was in the hospital for five weeks, she was released for one day and then went back into the hospital for two weeks. On that one day, I made and gave her candy flowers and a card to cheer her up; she loved pink, so the card and the flowers were both pink.
Stamps -- PTI Friendship Jar, PTI Friendship Jar Fillers
Paper -- Whisper White, Regal Rose, Glorious Green, So Saffron
Tools -- Round Tab punch, Scalloped Border punch
I bought the flower pot at Michael's, painted it white with acrylic paint, then glued a styrofoam ball into the bottom and stuck the candy flowers (which we made using a mold and candy melts) into the ball. I used easter grass for the "grass", and I glued a ribbon around the pot.
I will miss her very much. She was a wonderful person, who I will never forget. She was always so positive in the face of everything the doctors told her.
I love you, Jan. RIP.
