Design Team Delights for Challenge #19

It is time for my Design Team to share their favourite entries for Challenge #19.  As always, in each challenge you, the readers, get to voice your opinion by voting for your favourite and so it is only fitting that my Design Team get to do so as well.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to join along our Path during the month of October for Challenge #19.  While it is always a difficult decision, each team member managed to find a particular entry that really caught their attention.  Take a look... 
Edwina--chosen by Vicky, Suze, Lynda and Sandy...
Vicky had this to say:
"My DT delight is Edwina.  I really love how she's found in her life someone who totally embodies courage! Love this quote from her":
"How I wish I could smile and laugh in the face of illness and other worries as she does. Her courage is great. She does not let this unseen enemy get her down and keep her down. She stands tall all of 5' 2" and keeps on going on holding her head up, dressed in high heels and her hat to protect her skin."
Here is what Suze had to say:
"My DT delight is also Edwina. I love how the emphasis of her card is on the sentiments.  I can understand her inspiration for the card - who wouldn't be inspired by the courage her Aunt Theresa displays."

Lynda had this to say:
"My DT delight choice is also Edwina. I love her tribute to her Aunt who has pressed through her health issues. You can feel her admiration for her Aunt in her words."

said this:
"My DT delight choice is also Edwina.  I love the layered banded card.  Using a great sentiment by our very own Lisa D and to read about Edwina’s Aunt Theresa facing her health issues everyday with the courage  and determination to not take the positive from her life. Priceless."

Mimi--chosen by Pat...
This is what Pat had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Mimi. She says that":
"life is not all doom and gloom and I believe much of the battle for any illness is staying as positive as possible and doing ones best to make the good days as good as possible, live life to the fullest when you can"
"It takes a lot of courage to smile and be positive!"

Gloria--chosen by Desíre...
Here is what Desíre had to say:
"My DT delight is Gloria, as she had this to say and I totally try and live my life this way too":
"I think it takes a lot of courage to slow down, and to stop chasing things; the job, the money, the man, the friends, etc. Just go with the flow and let things fall into place as they are meant to be. That is when the magic happens."

Julie O.--chosen by Monica...
Here is what Monica had to say:
"My DT Delight is Julie. I loved her card that she made for her mother and her mother's ability to find something positive in such a difficult time."

Dawn--chosen by Lisa (that's me)...
My choice this time around is Dawn--specifically the first card that she entered.  This card was dedicated to her mom who lost her fight with cancer 24 years ago this month.  Dawn stated that her mother faced her battle with "unbelievable courage".  This made me remember my own mother's battle with vaginal cancer back in 2000.  THANKFULLY my mom is still here with us today.  She too faced her situation and all the tests and procedures with true courage.  It was incredible to see how strong she was during that time and still is to this day! 

There are so many people out there who are dealing with cancer right now.  I don't think there is anyone who hasn't been touched by this deadly disease in one way or another.  May these individuals always be able to draw on courage and strength to get them through.
