A card for Breast Cancer Awareness


While having a little peak at Feline Playful yesterday I spotted a link to a first annual Link Up for Pink
challenge that I thought I would like to make a card for.  It's for a Breast Cancer charity that gives little care packages to newly diagnosed patients, that will now include cards to let these brave people know that complete strangers are wishing them a speedy recovery from all over the world.  Also so many of my favourite challenge sites are hosting challenges in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness this week - why not create a card

I think we all know someone who has been affected by this awful disease, mainly female, but men too (both as suffers and partners of sufferers). I also know how supportive all my blogging friends new and old were when I did a card drive for Ovarian Cancer last year, so maybe it was time to make a card or two for this cause.

Nothing too fancy, just a little something to send to the charity, in the hope it makes someone smile

Now I don't know if it is the done thing to have an image who is so blatantly feminine and well, she's kinda got it all out there on this sort of card, but I thought, why not.  I'm hoping whoever the recipient is will take the card in the spirit in which it was created and sent... oh gosh I'm worried now!! She's called Samantha by Kraftin Kimmie and I want her waistline!! LOL :-D

I couldn't resist a spot or two of glitter on her compact, lippy and shoes :-D. 
I couldn't find a sentiment in my stash that I wanted so I created my own on the PC and printed it out onto CS

Again, I'm worried about this now!!  I hope it doesn't sound glib and frivolous when the recipient will be going through such a traumatic time :-/  Me and my bright ideas huh, I thought it was fine when I was doing it, only now am I worried!!
Despite my concerns over whether or not this card is appropriate, please can I enter these challenges

Thanks so much for stopping by, it's really appriciated :-D
