A Happy Heart...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to make only "pink" cards this week. Breast cancer strikes millions of women (and men), and, though I have been lucky enough to not have any loved ones suffer from breast cancer, my mother is fighting colon cancer, and I know the toll it can take on both the patient and her family.
The Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week is "In the Pink," and today I created a simple card with Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede. To add just a little touch of elegance, I paper pierced a flourish, repeating it in several places to create a frame effect. Please visit me here on TSB tomorrow and Saturday for a few more pink cards, and check out the PPA Challenge to post your own creations (and you might just win a very fabulous "pink" prize!)

I love the paper piercing on your card; it is beauty that needs little further decoration and your card exemplifies that in a most lovely fashion. I am sorry your mom is suffering from colon cancer...it is so very difficult, but I hope and pray you all have hope and peace in your hearts.
