Guest Designer Penny Ward with a Breast Cancer Awareness Month Card

Please welcome this quarter's guest designer, Penny Ward.

Hello from Largo & Lake Placid, Florida. My name is Penny Ward and I am so honored to be a guest designer here at Scor-Pal. I started making greeting cards about 2 years ago (though I have never made a scrapbook page) and I LOVE all the tools and pretty papers!!!  I am currently on the Design Team at and my first published cards came out in the November issue of CardMaker magazine, with at least six more published cards to follow in 2013.
I retired from a Fortune 300 company recently after almost 20 years. I have been married forever to the most wonderful man. We have two grown sons (Shane & Logan), a beautiful daughter in love (Soledad) and the two most adorable grandsons on earth (Declan & Ryder).
I hope you will visit my blog often for new ideas and inspiration.

Today I am bringing you a sweet card that is appropriate for any woman. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and what friend, sister, mother, grandmother wouldn't love receiving this card in the mail????

Your card is so, so precious. I especially love the stamped image. We use to call our bras, over the shoulder boulder holders, a swing is much The pillow ticking is perfect. Love, love, love it.
