PPA#14

I love making cards that draw attention to Breast Cancer Awareness.

I started making cards for a cousin of mine who was dying of breast cancer a couple years ago. That was some of the motivation of making cards for me because I wasn't finding anything in the marketplace that seemed to fit. I wanted to mail a card every couple weeks to let her know she was in my thoughts since I didn't live near her and couldn't visit. I think (hope) my cards helped to keep her spirits up a little bit. I heard she enjoyed when a new one arrived in the mail!
When a challenge like this comes up, it reminds me of Carolyn and that's a good thing!

So go check out the Pals Paper Arts blog and see what others have come up with using their challenge, "In the Pink".

I'm sure your cousin enjoyed receiving the cards.

I know my Mom loves geting a new card in the mail during this rough time.
