The card I hope I never send



I hope I never send this card to anyone.

When I was putting the trims on, I kept thinking "Who do I know that likes pink this much???"  I was trying to use up some ribbon I'd had in my stash way too long - can you tell? :-)  Anyway, the sentiment was selected just because it fit in the space.  It wasn't until I was coloring in the words that it dawned on me ... pink ... Live, Laugh, Love.  This is a card to send encouragement to someone fighting breast cancer.

I've known way too many of these woman in the last few years.  I guess it is a fact of getting older that there will be more people I know with life threatening illnesses.

I put this card in my general card box. I truly hope it gets crowded to the bottom, the trims mussed, the corners crinkled before I ever have a recipient for it.

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Spring by Inkadinkado
Ribbons:  Unknown sources
Markers: Stampin' Up!
Buttons: Papertrey Ink:
Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink by SU!; Lavendar Mist by PTI!

  3. It is a very pretty card, Lisa, and would be great for someone battling breast cancer. It would also be good for someone who just needs a little pick-me-up. At any rate, it's lovely!
