White and One colour with The Secret Crafter Saturday challenge



Good morning my lovelies and how are you all on this brisk
cold morning, it would appear the Autumn has definitely
arrived, is the morning cold where you are? if so let me know.

Now its sataurday and you all know that its time for the 
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and the theme for
this weeks challenge was chosen by the Secret Crafter Herself,
the very talented Wendy and she would like to see
White and One Other Colour, lets get our thinking caps on peeps,
grab a cuppa of what ever wake's you up and lets have some fun, 
after all it is the weekend and we just can't let by
without doing a little crafting lol.


For my inspiration piece this week I used a Tickled Pink,
Pink Ribbon image, the funds of which go towards Breast Cancer, 
The instructions for this card are  available from You Tube,
I used my grand Scalloped Nesties and Circle nesties, 
the background papers were a Freebie from The Pink Petticoat,
I coloured the PR Lilith with Copics and the Calligraphic Doodle
is available form The Stamp Addicts and the Laura Ashley Flower
was part of a set, the name of which I can not for the life of me 
remember lol


This card is for every survivor of breast cancer and for those who 
who were not so fortunate, 
This is for my Mum, my Mother In Law who fought and survived
and for my dearly remembered Aunty Bernice 
who never had science on her side.
This is also for you who might be suffering... have courage
and Fight, Fight Fight.


Sorry about the sombreness of this post...

As our Katie said I think we all know someone who has been touched by cancer and anything we can do that raises awareness may help others to know that it can be beaten and to have the courage to never give up.

As always, your card is perfect :-D
