To honor The Sunflower Fund, the challenge this week from the Diva was to draw a sunflower. The Sunflower Fund to support the South African Bone Marrow registry. This is a great cause and we should have something similar here in the USA. Maybe we do and I don't know about it. My Mother died of acute myelogenous leukemia in 2007. She battled to beat the disease so that she could get a bone marrow transplant but unfortunately, was unable to get to that point. As soon as I heard that she may need a transplant I was ready to get tested to see if I might be a match. My Uncle had already volunteered to be tested and was found to be a match. He did this without being asked. This makes him my hero, I guess I should tell him that huh? I think that those who have volunteered to join the registry in ANY country is a hero. I want to say thank you.
Now, on to my challenge tile. I copied the Sunflower Fund sunflower and used it as a template for my tile. I REALLY love Laura's sunflower that she tangled. It is stunning. I wanted to draw one just like hers. But, after a bit of brainstorming, I figured out which tangles I wanted to use. Drawing this tile went quite quickly for me. I have gotten really bad at tanking my time while tangling. I take a lot of breaks, sure, but when drawing, I just move slow. It was nice to get this one done at such a quick pace.
Thanks for taking a look and visiting my blog. Say Hi sometimes. :)
