Happy Thoughts

This is another very special post to support my dear friend and fellow Crafty Pad DT member Dawn who has had her head shaved to support her Mum who is in the midst of Chemotherapy treatment for Breast Cancer and is loosing her hair.  She is raising funds for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Charity, chosen my her Mum.  You can read more about it on her blog and Just Giving Page please do pop over and take a look.

This is the final update for Dawn's month long challenge over on her blog, so if you haven't entered yet this is your last chance.  There are lots of fab prizes to be won and she will be using a random number generator to select the winners so everyone has a chance.

We are also having a Special Month Long Challenge over at The Crafty Pad with the theme Breast Cancer Awareness and /or Think PINK not just a little pink but lots of PINK so please visit The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog and join in, there are even more fab prizes on offer there

This is my card, I decided to do something a little different for this one, the image, backing paper and verse are from Joanna Sheen's 'If Flowers Could Talk...' CD, I love the verse and thought it was quite appropriate.

There are two copies of the image on each sheet so I decided to decoupage the flowers and I have also mounted the image using foam pads to add a little dimension.

I have decorated the inside of my card as usual.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CD Sunday Challenge - Awash with Flowers
The Cupcake Craftroom September Challenge - Pretty Pastels
Creative Craft Challenge- Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl September Colour Challenge - Pink and Green
