A Spoonful of Sugar

At There's Magic In the Air with Paper Cupcakes, Shirley thought it would be good for people to celebrate Pink at least one more time with a "Pretty in Pink" Challenge. Extra points are given if your card is obviously for someone who has battled or is battling Breast Cancer or represents Cancer Awareness. I started out along those lines, but as my card progressed, it became a card for my friend Carol who just had a serious and very new kind of back surgery which is allowing her to stand up straight again! We are so excited because she hasn't been able to stand straight in over a year. Actually the card changed again after I made it because as I loaded it, I realized it needed something else so now it has a heart shaped pearl in the middle of the paper pierced heart (don't you love the new SU! paper piercing template? - wish you could see it better). I used the new Spoonfull of Sugar image available at Paper Cupcakes.

I am entering this in the There's Magic in the Air at Paper Cupcakes Magical Monday Challenge. After visiting the DT blogs, I wish I would have used the Breast Cancer Awareness cupcake image that most of them used - what a pretty image! Besides I am in the mood for cake today as it is my Birthday!

Hope you all have a wonderful day - Hugz!
