In Memory of Layton and Copic Colour Challenge 39

My dear friend Jak's 16-mo.-old Great Nephew passed away on Oct. 27th from Meningitis. Two exceptionally-talented artists have given their time to create Digi Stamps: Jim Harker made the Little Soldier Stamp I've used here and Mo Manning made the Out There Stamp, both available on Jak's blog for a single £4.00 (about $6.65 USD) donation and immediate download. All proceeds go to Meningitis search 4 a vaccine campaign. I'm fairly new to digis & Copics, but trust me when I tell you that these are exceptionally well-drawn images for an exceptional price!!! In addition, on Jak's blog you'll be able to link your card made with either of these digis for another fabulous giveaway she's sponsoring until next Sunday -- a wonderful deal for such a small amount and such a HUGE cause! Go check it out!!! Since I wanted my Little Soldier to be for Christmas, I used two new Copics (thanks to Hobby Lobby's 30% off sale 3 weeks in a row!) purchased specifically for the Copic Colour Challenge 39 and will have my Little Soldier do double duty -- I don't think he'll mind!!!
Paper: PTI's White CS
Digi Stamp: See link above to Jak's blog
Copics: R29, R59, G07, Y08, Y17, BG000, C1

What a wonderful image and oh, Marge, you have colored it so beautifully! Oh my goodness, this is just terrific!

Isn't that sad about a sweet little boy? That just breaks my heart. I will keep everyone in my prayers.
