I know that it isn’t quite October yest, but I want to remind everyone that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I know several women who are currently confronting this disease and even if I didn’t, I would want to remind everyone to Think Pink and continue working toward finding a cure for all cancers.

That thought was definitely in the back of my mind as I was checking out all of the challenge blogs this morning. The first one I saw was the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is animal antics this week. I knew immediately which image I wanted to use. Next, I took a peek at the Sketch Saturday challenge and this week’s sketch was perfect for with the image that I had selected. Now I had an image and a layout. I just needed a color palette. Lo and behold, Penny Black’s Saturday challenge this week is a color challenge – Chocolate, Lemon and Pink. Since I knew I was using a Penny Black image and wanted to use pink on my card, it pretty much became very much a no brainer for me.


It is difficult to see in the photo, but the background paper really is brown, not black. It is some that I had leftover from a Creative Memories pack from way back when. My starting point for this card as I said was the Uplifting Occasion image from Penny Black since I had breast cancer on my mind. The rest of it just came together. I love it when the stars seem to align like this.

By the way, after a bit of a break, my youngest finally finished up a new card which you can see if you go to T’s Creations.
