June's Challenge!

Hey girls! Summer has arrived in all its hot, sweaty glory and, although it's
only just June now, we've already been busy in the sprinkler, eating lots
of ice cream and slathering on the sunscreen. Wow! If this keeps up, I can't
imagine what August is going to be like!

I'm not sure how many of you know, but the first Sunday in June is
National Cancer Survivors Day, and I thought this would be
a wonderful celebration to base our monthly challenge around.
So, you have until June 30th to create a card that:

1.) is for someone who has been affected by cancer
(this can be directly or indirectly)

2.) Includes ribbon
(as various organizations have adopted different colour
ribbons to raise awareness. See http://www.rainbowofhopecanada.ca/
for a list of various cancers and their corresponding colours)

3. ) Is not a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 single fold card
(just to shake things up and make y'all think outside the box!)

Well, that's it. I hope you have fun creating and may these
particular cards send out big blessings to their recipients!

Have a fantastic June everyone!
