StampInsanity - Katie for a Cure

StampInsanity has a very special challenge for you this week. Beth has created a new set for her cousin who is battling breast cancer. Here is what Beth writes about the new set:
“Katie for a Cure is a very special set I designed to honor my cousin Kate, who earlier this year, at age 33, was diagnosed with breast cancer.   Kate is the picture of health and vitality, and her spirit is magical.  She has two very young children, and is in the prime of her life – which makes her diagnosis all the more distressing.   As only Katie can, she is fighting this disease with the strength and grace of a pure champion.   Her story is sadly not unique, but this is my Katie, and I had to do something. It is tragic, but I am sure that my family is not the only one to have this disease repeatedly rearing its head at us.  It is my hope that together we will raise a donation that we can all be proud of.  And if nothing else, Kate will get a smile from all the beautiful cards that you share with us.  Thank you all in advance for your donations and your creations!”
This great set is only $10 and ALL the proceeds will benefit Breast Cancer Research!!! This week the super talented ladies at Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge will be joining us!

Your challenge is to make your card
Pink & Black. Here is my Katie card...

I decided to create a heart shaped easel card, as the main message of this card is love and support.  I coloured Katie with my letraset promarkers, and created the background with the letraset airbrush set, and a scrapbooking template. I used the "Your Strength Amazes & Inspires Me." sentiment, as this one really touched me, as everyone i've known that has had to battle this disease has done so with great strength, bravery and dignity.


Don't forget about the Fantastic Femmes d' crafty!!  at Fussy & Fancy.
