Challenge Title: Unsentimental
Hostess: Joan B/Joan Bardee
Date: Sunday, October 3rd, 2010
This challenge is dedicated to my friend Nancy, whose best friend died of breast cancer. Let's take a horrible disease and try and bring some joy to those suffering from it.
Oh, and maybe you'll win a prize too!
Your challenge is to make a card without a sentiment on the front!
Hey, there is a reason this is called a challenge. It's harder than you think! But loads of fun too. Let's let our images speak for themselves!
Go for it. The patients and their families will love and appreciate your cards. And I can't wait to see your entries!

I found very cute Breast Cancer Awareness Digi Stamps from the Stretch N' Bubbles blog and I used one of them. I created everything on the computer, then just cut them out and matted the images. I made 4 of these cards (2 of each of the ones in the picture) because I didn't want to waste a piece of cardstock.
Fun challenge, Joan. I actually reworked a card I made the other day that I knew would work without a sentiment. Here it is -- Just Butterflies and Ferns. Just to clarify -- this is a brand-new card, just similar to one I made the other day.
