Cancer Awareness "Thank You" Cards inside Explosion Box

Hello, Friends!  I have five friends who have/had breast cancer, three of which are cancer-free at this moment, one who has had a partial mastectomy, and one who has just had a complete mastectomy and hysterectomy at the same time.  After Christmas, I was perusing through the Christmas clearance aisles at Wally-World and found some beautiful Cancer Awareness wrapping paper for about 35 cents.  Couldn't pass it up!  I got an idea while looking around, that I've never seen thank-you cards or any cards that are cancer-specific.  But I've never really looked for any either. 

I had a box that is 4" x 4" x 3.5" and thought it was the right size for smaller thank-you cards.  I made ten thank-you's, each sporting a pink ribbon and put them along with envelopes into the decorated explosion box and this is what I ended up with...

I hope my friend likes these.  I know she's been blessed by many people helping her through this tough time, and maybe these can be a little blessing in return.  I hope you enjoyed your visit, and I'd appreciate you leaving a comment at the bottom of this blog to let me know what you think.  Happy Spring!

  5. Congrats on your Amazing Grace blog candy! It was your note there that brought me to your site. Must say how very beautiful and thoughtful your gift box of cards is.
