This is my card for my Hope You Can Cling To challenge - Peaceful Pink.
I chose this image because while going through my own cancer battle, I have found great peace listening to the beautiful birds that sing outside my window. even when the chemo was at it's most horrible, I could listen to those birds, find comfort, and get through the next few minutes.
Image is from A Day for Daisies, papers are K & Co. Flora and Fauna, trim is Prima, buttons are vintage, leaf flourish die is Cheery Lynn. butterflies are covered in spun sugar distress stickles, flowers are accented with pink spica glitter pen, and water is covered in frost shimmer spray.

Oh, I so agree - I can spend hours watching the birds in our garden, and last year for the first time I started being able to identify some of the songs! Your bird bath and pink flower garden are lovely, and your paper is gorgeous.

This is peaceful and lovely - the ripples in the water always seem especially soothing to me. What pretty flowers, and also such pretty adornments.
Thank you for sharing - I pray for all the best for you.
Thanks also for sharing your cards at your cancer center.
I have a bird bath in my yard and how wonderful to just sit and watch the birds splash. It's very relaxing and peaceful as your card is.
