Had to ink up this set gifted to me by a friend for this HYCCT challenge especially because of the saying and who said it. After I stamped the gumball machine, I originally was going to color all the gumballs pink, but decided to make them different colors for the different cancer awareness ribbons in memory of the family I've lost to cancer. Once all my coloring was finished, I got the crazy idea to add mini dew drop drops to highlight all of the gumballs and then added a few more along the "floor' of the gumball machine.
So to the following people, this is in your memory:
Mom - breast cancer - age 42
Grandpa Larry - esophogeal cancer - age 82
Grandma Marge - breast & thyroid cancer - age 80
and to my SIL Nancy who's currently in remission - yay!!

such a sweet & light hearted card for so much heartache. My heartfelt condolences.
Those gumballs are awesome, but they remind me of the Orbeez my daughter got for her birthday yesterday. They are cute but awful! LOL!! Slimey and weird... like tapioca balls. ugh! Worst "toy" ever! but she loves it! LOL!!
