Use Your Noodle to Doodle at Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog

Last year when my husband was diagnosed with ALS, we joined an ALS support group. We became very close to one of the couples, and the wife and I started emailing, texting and phoning each other with our worries, fears, discoveries and experiences. We could vent to each other about our feelings at being our husbands caretakers, knowing that each would understand that we while we may complain, whine and begrudge the time and effort, we are at ease in knowing that we won't be judged by the other. She knows how much I love my husband and would go to the ends of the earth for his comfort, just as much as I know she would do the same.
This month Bill and I go to her husband's funeral. I created this sympathy card with the love and understanding I feel for my friend who bravely fought by her husband's side, battling this incurable disease.
I have been lucky to have witnessed several shooting stars in my life. I thought this digi image from the Scribbles Store was the perfect image to show my friend that her crushing grief will pass, just as a shooting star passes across the sky. I printed and then embossed the image, called Shooting Star, then doodled a border around the edge. This fulfills the challenge theme this month to "Doodle with your Noodle" at Scribbles Designs challenge blog.
I also printed out a Gold Glitterati textured paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles before adding some lace, pearls and flower.
