Calling all eco-queens...

Stamped images that have to be coloured in rarely make it onto my cards because I am so rubbish with a paintbrush/marker pen! But having lost both breasts to cancer (and having a sense of humour about it), I have wanted to do something with this image for YONKS! But didn't have the stamp. I mentioned this in a comment on someone's blog a while ago, and before I could blink, an envelope plopped through my letterbox containing some lovely stamped images!! How lovely!! :o)

Would love to give credit to this person, but my thanks have to remain private at the request of the person concerned who prefers to be anonymous. She knows I am grateful. :o)

I hope you like the card.. I think it's perfect for anyone undergoing a mastectomy, or even breast augmentation (minus the breast cancer ribbon, of course!) Feel free to copy it (for personal use) if you know someone who is facing that kind of trial and could do with sending a smile. (Click on the pic below for a larger image if you struggle ~ like me! ~ to read the writing.)

BG Euphoria paper again, and the image is, I believe, Penny Black.

  3. Hi Chris, I think this card is 'purrrrrfect'. I have this stamp, and I do love it. I love the caption. I hope it will cheer someones day, and keep them positive. It's brilliant.

  4. Hiya Chris

    I have this image somewhere and haven't coloured it either - it always seemed too fiddly!!! LOl

    but you have done a great job the colouring is great..


  5. What a brilliant take on this image you have Chris and I'm sure would give anyone a 'lift' should they be unfortunate enough to need one.

  6. Hi Chris

    What a great card - love what you have done here. I never think of putting captions next to my images - fantastic idea.

    I don't know why you don't colour stamped images as this looks brilliant!!

    Love Jules xx

  7. This is a fab card Chris..that would bring a smile to even the saddest face. I've always admired your wonderful attitude to adversity and it's one I try to emulate with the trials I have to face.. keep it up you're a star.

  10. Hi Chris,
    Thank you so much for leaving me a comment linking to your card. My friend would love this- she has an excellent sense of homour! I have made a card today using the Pink Petticoat papers, which I hope to post on my blog tomorrow, but will try to get hold of this stamp for a later card. It is early days for my friend but thank you for your kind wishes.
    God bless
