Papertake Weekly Challenge...Sketch 25

Hi folks......I can't believe this is the last week of my Guest Design spot on the fab Papertake Weekly Challenge but as they say.....time flies when you are having fun and it sure has been fun and a big thank you to all the team for having me along.
The challenge this week is a fabby sketch from Dawny P and there is a little twist...."Think Pink".

And as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and this is a cause very dear to my heart having lost two very dear friends to breast cancer...I dedicate this card to all those who are battling this terrible disease....

Papers: Basic Grey....Sugared
Image: The Angel Company
Ribbon and gems from my stash
Sentiment: Doodlebug All Mixed Up Small
American Crafts: Foam Thickers

Well that's it for today folks....am now beavering away with the rest of the DT stuff for this week......maybe I shouldn't have had those two fun days playing over the weekend and the weather.....well let's just say it's sunny and bright not the most perfect day for being marooned in the cubbyhole......catch up with you all later.

Oops....oops....I think there may have been some crossed wires this week...either that or one of the two dopey old mares (mentioning no names....you know who you are) have finally gone doolally....apparently there is no Think Pink theme to this week's challenge...thanks Donna for putting me wise.....so forget you read that bit....while I go and lie down in a darkened room.

  7. Kath, I completely LOVE this card. That flamingo is over the top cute and I love what you did with her, and the meaning behind it as well. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friends. I know far too many women who have been challenged by it, but fortunately have beaten it and are survivors. Thanks so much for playing with us at PTW this month! Big hugs!

  8. Fabulous Card Kath, those BG papers were just made for that image.
    Glad the weather was good today. It has been raining here all day just perfect for crafting.
    Glad I did my walk yesterday.
