The Pink Journey Continues














Here are 14 new designs of my breast cancer cards.  They are all done in the retro colors and I absolutely love them! All of the sentiments are embossed on the cards and I did quite a bit of white pen stitching to make them pop.  I hope they sell well at my craft show in 3 weeks.

Creativity Flows Again!

Here is a card I made for a friend who is celebrating being cancer free for three years.  After Christmas I guess I needed a break because everything I made I didn't like and felt was not up to my personal standards of creativity.  I know I critique myself pretty harshly but I just couldn't get into it and I definitely didn't want to post any of those cards.
Yesterday I sat down and tried again and I have to say that this is my new favorite card.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  I have decided that I am going to do a series of them in different colors.  I am doing a craft show in March and for every card I sell I am going to donate $.50 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
