Just a Note - Pink & Purple

Click on any image to enlarge.

Purple (not blue)

These cute bunnys are by Di's Digi Downloads. I think she does the cutest images. The pink card was made for Bella (the eight year old girl who lost all of her limbs due to a near fatal sickness. Several card sites are telling her story, one being 2 Sisters Challenge Blog. The address if you would like to send a card or financial aid to her family is: The Bella Tucker Fund, PO Box 199, Londonderry, NH 03053.
I wanted to send her something cheerful, and I think this card fits the bill. The sentiment, which is how I truly think of her, is from a clear set of sentiments that I have. The flowers are from the wedding section in Michaels, the buttons on both cards are from Michaels bins. The image is inside a window. I didn't want to lose the inside for commenting, however, so I pop-dotted the image just inside the cutout. If you see the inside of the card on the left, that's why I have a scalloped circle and another image. I printed a note to her from my printer, and after taking picture of the backside, I adhered it to the green patterned paper.
Both cards are basically made the same way. Except on the purple card I used pansies from the floral department in Michaels and a MS punch on the border. I will be putting a sentiment on the purple card, also. It will say: "Just a note".
I'm entering the cards in the following challenges:
The Pixie Cottage - sketch and optional aperture (both cards)
Incy Wincy Designs - distressing (inside of the purple card)
Pear Tree Designs - glitter or bling (butterfly on pink card)
Crafty Creations - make your own button (pink card)
Hope you enjoy looking at the cards.

Hi there DJ,
First of all can I thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog, it never ceases to amaze me that I can share my own creations worldwide...and get to know fellow crafter's with the same love for our hobby, and share all our idea's...

Your question about the butterfly...I think it's from Papermania, I haven't got the packaging anymore, and you know what it's like, we crafter's buy so much stuff we forget... I am pretty sure though because I brought a whole load of stuff from the same set...

Your card is lovely, and for such a worthy person, you sound like you have a heart of gold, that's what I so love about our community...

On a different note...I have to say, I wished we in the UK had a Micheal's...I think I would spend all day shopping...lol I only wished I had been a crafter on my visit to the US...I would have needed a crate to ship home...lol

I hope you don't mind me becoming a follower, I have to say I don't visit as much as I would like because of other commitment's but I do love taking the time to visit when I can. My Mom is disabled and I spend alot of time doing stuff for her and in my free time I like to spend it at my friend's craft shop making card's for our challenge and helping out.
Thank you for leaving me your email addy, I usually have mine on my blog but lately I have been getting alot of spam so took it off for a while, if you would like to email me my addy is

Thank's again for your lovely comments and I look forward to visiting you again soon
