Think Pink Week!

Hello!  Happy Monday!  This week I will be sharing Think Pink cards!  My local scrapbooking store Scrapbooking by Design is having Think Pink Month.  One of the things they are doing this month is collecting cards for A Card for a Survivor, there goal is 150 cards that they would like to hand out at the Canadian Breast Cancer CIBC Run for the Cure walk that takes place this upcoming Sunday October 2nd!  My goal is to work on Pink cards all week long and bring them in this Friday!  I think that this is a great idea and want to help her reach an surpass her goal of 150 cards!  If you would also like to create a card for this and can mail it asap or if you live locally please check out this link here

For me sadly breast cancer has touched someone I love.  A few years ago my aunt (my mother's youngest sister) died after her first treatment.  My mother, other aunt and uncle didn't make it in time to see her as they were just landing in the airplane (my aunt lived in Croatia)  My aunt lived a very hard life living through the war in Croatia (she lived in what was called one of the worst war torn cities in Europe) and after the war losing her husband to a tragic farm accident.  Life was just starting to clear up for her. And recently another close family friend has gone out of remission and is undergoing treatment.  I am praying for her healing.  And I plan to send her a card now and again to let her know that she is in our thoughts and prayers.

I don't have a stamp set that is dedicated towards creating cards for this so I am getting creative with my own supplies!  Today I have two cards to share that are similar:



I used two new stamp sets by Hero Arts the My Happy from there Studio Calico line (got this one with my HA class at Scrapfest!)  And Butterflies and Wildflowers from there Basic grey line.  I thought this sentiment today is a new day was a good one, thoughts?

See you tomorrow with another pink card!

This is a wonderful project - I hope the goal of 150 is reached. Your cards are so pretty, Anita. I love the butterflies and the pink backgrounds. Would never have thought to use the woodgrain for these!
