A Flower for Cancer

InStyle Stamps has these great Breast Cancer Awareness images, and they are giving them away for free through Sunday. That's right - free! I love this Hope Daisy - it's so big and cheerful. I've seen some cute samples from the InStyle designers using this flower, and of course since it is Breast Cancer Awareness month they are all pink.

Don't get me wrong, I love pink. A whole whole lot. But I know people who have other kinds of cancers - not just breast cancer. In my family alone, I've seen four different kinds. I have a lovely friend who is currently battling colon cancer. And although she loves girlie things, her cancer awareness color is blue. So I thought, for the next note I sent her, I'd make her a blue flower to honor that.

I left my card simple to focus in the flower. I used my Scor-Buddy to emboss grid lines around the outer edges. And I left it embellishment free. It was quick, simple, and I think it's pretty :)

Be sure to head over to InStyle Stamps to see how you can get this image, and others, for free. They'll only be there through this Sunday, so hurry!
