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!


  1. Oh my word, I knew there was something about the first day of the month, and now I know why! The new challenge is posted! Awesome. Well done Angela. Can't wait to get crafty with this one.

  2. Oh my word! It is 11:45pm on June 30th, and I don't have a card completed for this month's challenge. I am a failure. Epic fail! I hang my head in shame. I thought that I could somehow use the last card that I posted on my blog, but it doesn't meet all of the qualifications. Unbelievable. I will make it up double-time next month. I promise.

  3. darn it all! I totally missed this one! I would have done something FOR SURE!!!!!!

  4. I finally made my June Challenge card - only a month late! Check it out:
