In Memory of Bill Blog Hop


This hop is to support our friend and fellow design team member Sue Trembeth. Sue recently lost  her brother to esophageal cancer. The color theme for this hop is periwinkle, which is the color of esophageal cancer awareness.

If this is your first stop on the hop please start at

If you are on track with the hop the next stop on the hop is

Cancer is a terrible disease and it's hard to believe that people still die from it. We lost my step-dad to liver cancer in 2016. More recently my younger brother passed away last month. So I empathize with Sue.

As for the details on how I created this card. Sorry, I won't be providing those today. But I will have a YouTube video available later detailing how it was created.

Stamps: CTMH Sentiments by Melissa Esplin, Life in Boots
Paper: Canson XL Watercolor Paper
Ink: CTMH Intense Black
Accessories: Water Brush, Ranger Embossing Powder Clear, Arteza Real Brush Pens Coffee, Ash Black, Periwinkle

A complete list of the supplies is under the picture. The list, contains compensated affiliate links. If you wish to create a similar card. There is no cost to you for using the links. But it does provide funds to help continue this blog.

Thank you for stopping by!
