Hope

So this card was made for someone going through a breast cancer scare. {shaking my head}....breast cancer touches TOO many people. I won't get on a soapbox with all my thoughts about that horrible disease, but I will say this....if you're due for your yearly mammogram, *please* go get it done. :) Early detection really is key. Okay....'nuff said about that....



The stamp is from Whipper Snapper Designs. It's one of Anna Wight's cling sets called "Think Pink." Papers are "Howdy Doody" by My Mind's Eye, I sponged the paper doily with Ranger Vintage Photo ink, and I popped the main sentiment panel up on foam tape. I cut two butterflies out with Verve's Flutterby die and popped both of them up on foam tape as well. The layout is Freshly Made Sketch 22.

Hope you have a REALLY great Sunday! NASCAR is back so that's what will be on our TV today. :)

Hey Denise - this is beautiful.

When I saw that NASCAR started back up this weekend, you were the first person that popped into my head. It's going to be a great year :)

Have a great Sunday
