Okay, seriously, this is THE best card for BCA, Virginia. This should truly be picked up by Hallmark or some other company and be mass produced. I would buy it right now. Sadly, I have two friends actively fighting the disease ... but, happily, I know five others who are surviving it.

Sorry, I didn't mean to carry on. Awesome job!!

Good luck with your first boobie squeeze! I'm glad you're doing the right thing and thank you for helping to spread the word!

The butterflies are beautiful as they transition from a soft pink into a darker dimensional element!

Think of a Breville Sandwich Maker, Virginia, that'll give you an idea.

Beautiful card with a very appropriate sentiment strip. And thank you for the link to The Piano Guys - I've just had a lovely 15 minute diversion to You Tube to remind me how fantastic they are.

Beautiful card, Virginia! So lovely to use the three colors for the butterflies.

I just saw the Piano Guys on the Katie show this week - had never heard of them before. Amazing! Thanks for sharing the video.
