Oh Hello, Pink Saturday!

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

It's a beautiful Pink Saturday, and oh, how I have missed them! I just love so much the idea of Pink Saturdays..... to celebrate the pinkness in our world.... the beauty of all that is feminine.... of what makes our hearts soar, our souls sing out to God! gosh, the glory of it all is amazing! :) and I am happy to say that I have signed on to celebrate every one in the future with abandon! I hope you will join me!

My card this week is a re-run..... and it is because I am mailing it out toute de suite to a precious little girl who is in need of some cheering. I am trying to send out as many cards in my stash. I am still making new ones, too, but cards that just sit in a box need a loving home to really fulfill their purpose, and I just learned of this little girl, Grace, on Friday. You can read more of her story here on Jennifer McGuire's blog, but in essence, her twin sister, Ellie, recently lost her battle with cancer. Jennifer is trying to collect as many cards as possible to send to 10 year old Grace. I thought that this adorable twirling fairy from The Stamping Boutique might brighten her day. It's full of pinkness and flowers and lots of shimmery shine, so hopefully that will at least bring a bit of a smile.

Papers are Basic Grey and flowers are Prima. Punches are Stampin' Up! and EK Success.

May you have a most beautiful Pink Saturday!

What a fantastic card for a little girl. Grace will be thrilled to get this sweet little fairy in all her precious pink and I am sure it will bring her some cheer.

This is just delightful, Jennifer! Love that fairy image and she looks so super sweet all done up in pink. That row of ribbon and buttons is positively yummy. So sweet of you to make a card to cheer up this little one.
