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.
