Happy Friday crafty friends! I hope you’ve all had a good week? It’s getting chilly here in Scotland perfect crafting weather though! It’s time for a new challenge over at the Daring Cardmakers blog and this week we are hosted by lovely Joanne who asks us to “wear it pink” in honour of breast cancer awareness month.
This is very close to my heart as my mother in law suffered from breast cancer and sadly passed away in 2018. She is greatly missed for the loving, kind Mum she was as well as being such a fun person who loved to laugh and spend time with her friends and family. This was taken on my first visit to South Africa before her illness and we had such a great time staying with her and spending a week in the Kruger Park together. She had baked an absolute mountain of cookies for our arrival and even after eating many many of them during our 3 week stay we still had a good supply to take home! We had just booked our wedding when she was diagnosed and we worried that she might not be around to help us celebrate in a years time as she was so ill. However cancer had met it’s match and she wasn’t going to let it make her miss her boy’s wedding! Not only did she make it she was one of the last on the dance floor!
I chose to make a butterfly themed card as butterflies always make me think of people who are no longer with us. I used a Memory Box butterfly frame die to cut the frame in white and also in some inky glossy paper I had in my stash. I paper pieced the pink into the wings on top of some bright pink card that I had made with a liquid ink. I then added a sentiment and some nuvo drops and voila…..
I hope you like my little pink butterfly card. Keep safe and well everyone and I’ll see you again soon.
