Penguin Ray is a hero!...

Hello everyone,

Today's post is special and tinged with sadness and admiration!

 Our lovely Crissy Armstrong has drawn the most beautiful image to honour her brother Ray who is undergoing treatment for cancer - she has called this little fella

The thoughts and prayers of the Whimsy family are with Crissy, Ray and their family - cancer is *insert rude word* cruel and heartbreaking!

All proceeds from the sale of this very special digi image are going to 

The Make A Wish Foundation Of Canada

To make my card I printed 
onto watercolour card and masked him with masking sheet.

The background is created by blending Distress Oxides in Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch and flicked them water and Perfect Pearls to give some texture. 

The image is die cut with the largest 

I coloured 
with Polychromos, adding a few white dots to the chemo bag.

I die cut a tag and stamped the a sentiment from from the 
onto it.  (I really like that sentiment and thought it was perfect for this card)!

The image is layered onto a larger circle, with an added the tag.  Finally I and painted Penguin Ray's beak with some Glossy Accents.

has been released this week as a digi
and all the proceeds are going to 
The Make A Wish Foundation Of Canada
'A hero is an ordinary person who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles'

Isn't this the most amazing photo of an incredibly brave man!
