Today starts a new challenge at NettieG's Digital Gems. The requirements were for us to use our favorite digi and our favorite colors. Nettie has just returned home after an 8 day stay in the hospital battling pneumonia. Please pray for her recovery. This is my card for the challenge but I would like to tell you why this is my favorite.
This is not the original of this image. The original only has the elephant and is for sale in Nettie's shop. When I saw it, it reminded me of Jacob, Donna's son. I sent Nettie an email and told her this story. Before Jacob was born, I crocheted him a blue blanket. It has been an extension of him since he was a baby. When he would get up in the mornings, he would wrap it around his neck and carry it until he woke up good. When going to sleep, he had to have it. He would entwine his fingers through it and of course he would have to have it in bed. Donna told me I needed to make another one because he was going to wear it out. I did but he didn't like it. He had to have the original for some reason. When Nettie heard my story, she altered her image to include a blanket and sent it to me. She drew the original when her son was a child. Thank you, Nettie, for making this version for me.
