Diva's challenge #221

This week's theme of Laura's challenge is 'Beads of Courage'. This is an Arts in Medicine that supports kids with chronic or life threatening illnesses. Instead of a sticker, these kids get a glass bead when they've had a needle, x-ray etc. 

Laura asks us to get inspired by Beads of Courage. As I have a chronic disease myself since my 24th, I can only imagine what it feels like to go through all the hassle when you're a kid. I admire their positiveness and can only give them my heart (full of Widgets ;-) ) to stay strong. I know they will...!

  2. C'est très joli et je regrette de ne pas pouvoir zoomer sur le dessin. Tout semble briller au milieu de ce coeur!
    It is very attractive and I regret I cannot zoom on the drawing. Everything seems to shine in the middle of this heart!

  6. This is a very pretty Beads of Courage!! Love the heart. I too have (several) chronic illnesses since my early 20s at least - so I feel a similar way :) :)

  7. Creative and well thought out way to address this challenge. Like the widget heart and the shading you did to achieve the heart shape.

  8. Your tile reminds me of fancy beaded pins stuck into a pincushion! (You can tell I'm old because I remember those things...) Beautiful!
