I think this has been my toughest special order yet. The card is for a friend of my mom's - a gentleman who has decided to discontinue the treatment of his brain tumour and live out the remaining few months of his life without suffering through further chemo or radiation. Whoa. A huge decision and I have such admiration for the choice he has made. She asked me to use this specific sentiment and, given that he worked for Sail Training International, she wanted sailing to feature on it. My mom admired this card so I decided to CASE it as I was pretty unsure where to go with an order like this. Thankfully she is really pleased with it and I hope that her friend's remaining days are as peaceful and full of love as possible.
I thought of the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a masculine card using designer paper when I made this but I dithered about whether entering was appropriate given the nature of the card. My mom gave her blessing though and said that if it meant that maybe some other people would send good wishes his way than that couldn't be a bad thing.
