Three Clover's Thursday Challenge-Pink!
I love "purty" cards but I don't make them too often. This card is a pink version of a card I have had in my head for months and just can't seem to get around to making. Maybe someday I will get to that card too !
The challenge this week on 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge is PINK. We all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness with pink being the signifying color. Both my mother and my sweetie's mother are breast cancer survivors of nearly 20 years! Hallelujah!
Although, October is associated with Breast Cancer Awareness, this October my family will be fighting a different type of cancer. My brother was diagnosed with advanced kidney cancer last week. He had a 7 hour surgery yesterday to remove his kidney and is now recuperating in a hospital miles away from most of his family. I ask all my blog friends out there to not only celebrate and pray for a cure for breast cancer, but for all cancers. I know too many friends and family facing this long struggle and I know a friend and a prayer can help so much during this difficult time.
My challenge to you is to make a pink card (or any card for that matter) and send it out to someone facing a struggle such as this...I know...actually put your card in an envelope, stamp it and mail it! I am so bad about mailing cards, but tonight I will be addressing several cards to friends that could use a simple lift of spirits that a card brings. As Nike says..."Just do it!"
I don't usually share personal details on this blog...(except for showing off my adorable grandson)
so my apologies for straying so far from the world of crafts, but I thought this important enough you would forgive me. If any of you would like to send a card to my brother, just email me and I will send you his address.

Stamps: Sentiment from Stampin' Up
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip and retired Pink Pirouette DP from SU! GP white
