I am back today with a great new sketch from Cindy Hall. I love the possibilities for the square elements and can’t wait to see the gallery this week!
I actually decided to use a different shape and went with butterflies instead. I need a card for a dear family friend who is fighting breast cancer. She is over halfway through her chemo treatments and is such an amazing and inspirational woman. She is in need of a bit of a lift so I wanted to make something special for her. I chose to use stitching instead of ribbon for the sketch and added the gorgeous 3-1/2″ Scalloped Tulle Ribbon for the crossing panel. Yes, I actually sewed on my card!! My wonderful mom gave me an awesome sewing machine and I have been wanting to use it on a card so badly. I really like the stitching here!! I thought the little touch of pink would be nice to put in a pop of color and perfect for the last day of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month).
I hope that you are having a good and safe week. I am glad that I had pre-posted for yesterday and today because we lost power for about 27 hours. Through the overwhelming kindness of friends, we were surprised when a generator was brought over yesterday afternoon. It saved all the food we had and my gratefulness for their generosity is without words. Unlike so many, we did not sustain any damage and are incredibly lucky. All those in the path of Sandy remain in my thoughts and prayers.
Make sure you take a look at the amazing design team work this week! It is LeAnne’s and Narelle’s last week as guest designers. What a joy it has been to have them join us for October!! Have a great rest of your week!
