Okay, now for my card!!!

I was asked to make a Thank You card or several as it would happen,
I won't go into the details but,here's what I came up with!

It's  a simple little A6 white linen embossed card  blank 
from Southfield Stationers, with a plain white insert.
The image & sentiment are both from Bugaboo
and were just perfect for my needs!

This was such a simple make,
The image was so simple to colour,
I used a single promarker!
Then, I cut it out with an oval nestie,
matted onto a scalloped oval nestie in pink,
punched out butterflies & leaves from the scraps,
added a little pink ribbon, which began life white 
but I coloured that with the promarker too.
A couple of gems to finish off & Hey Presto!
As I was making a number of  these little babies, 
I rang the changes a little & played about with the colours etc
below are just a few of the others!

Hopefully these cards will also act as a reminder to the recipients 
to "Check Their Boobies"!
Early Detection is so important with Breast Cancer & it's so very important
to check yourself out regularly! 
That goes for the guys too!

I hope you like my little Thank You cards!
Thanks for looking in!
