World Card Making Day 2010

Today is World Card Making Day, and Splitcoaststampers is partnering with M. D. Anderson Cancer Center for a month-long card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer. Every day there will be a challenge, and then at the end of the month, we're to mail our cards to M.D. Anderson for distribution among the patients. What a worthy cause! My mom is a 25-year breast cancer survivor, and I am more than happy to contribute to this worthy cause.

Each day will be new challenge, but they started off with a bang -- three challenges! The first was to make a holiday card, but use pink rather than traditional colors for that holiday. I'm in the process of making Halloween cards for the residents of the assisted living facility where my mom lives, so this was right in line with what I've been doing lately.

The second challenge was lingerie-inspired -- either with lingerie-type stamps or with lace and ribbon, satin and bows. Having no lingerie-type stamps, I opted for the second choice. I found this lacey ribbon in my stash of goodies.

The last challenge was a color challenge -- brown and pink. Fortunately, this Basic Grey DP is all about brown and pink. I actually combined this challenge with Speedy the Cat's Friends' challenge to make a card with buttons and bows.

My salt and pepper shakers for today had to be relative to all three challenges. I figure the pink dress on the girl and the pink ribbon on the goose would qualify.

Hanging out with my that is cute! Love all the cards. That rose is a beauty. Your s&p shakers with the pink worked really well.
