I'm back from the States and stamping in the middle of the night thanks to jet lag!
I missed some wonderful color combinations at The Play Date Cafe. But I guess I can still use them for inspiration!
This weeks challenge is to use black and white with just a splash of any color you choose. I chose pink and here's why: while I was in the States I got the news that my friend with breast cancer learned she is stage 4. She has been told her cancer is not curable, just treatable. I don't like that diagnosis so am praying for a miracle. When I heard her diagnosis I tried to send her some flowers. Thankfully the florist I called was aware of limitations for chemo patients so told me I could not send flowers. As I looked for something else to send I thought about the fact that this friend has tons of friends who will undoubtedly be performing countless acts of kindness for her. I decided the best thing I could give her would be handmade cards which she can use to thank her many friends. With that in mind, in the coming days I will be making many cards as a gift for my friend. Here is my first:
The "L" in the sentiment reminded me of the pink ribbon used as the symbol for the fight against breast cancer. So I stamped the image with black ink, wiped the ink of the "l" and colored it with a pink marker. I expect someone will give my friend gifts of chocolate so I think this sentiment will work fine.
Here is the inside:
The inside doesn't stick to the black and white theme, but I think the front is the part which must fit with the challenge so this should be fine.
