When I first read about the "Many Colors of Cancer" challenge for HYCCT and clicked over to where we could see which color represented each illness, I knew that I wanted to use orange (leukemia) to honor my mother, but found that it was too emotional in that moment to execute a card. After sitting with the idea for a few days, I managed to make this card. My mother was the absolute epitome of "MOTHER" and was an amazing creative that raised homemaking to a fine art. "HOME" was definitely wherever she was, for me...

Thanks for sharing your heart with your artwork - I was drawn by your warm color combination and then the sweet sentiment you used. What a blessing to have such warm memories of your mother that can bring a light to someone else.
