Pink, pink, pink! That's my theme for today. :) Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Digital Doodles dedicated this week challenge with pink theme. For my card, I used Digital Doodles Home Sweet Home, Banner Bird, and Song Bird.

Wild Orchid - pastels
Corrosive Challenges - no white paper
Penny's Paper-Crafty - so long as it flies

This card is for my mom. My family & home in Jakarta has been in my mind a lot lately, so this card kind of symbolized that. The bird flying with the banner is me wanting to fly home.

I've been searching for good ticket price for weeks now. The ticket could be reasonable, but once they added the tax, that's where it goes crazy. Seriously, the tax is 1/3 of the ticket price. Still praying for some miracle that I can find one good deal, so I can be home for Christmas. I haven't been able to come home during Christmas since 1997. Sigh... the downfall of living on the other side of the world.

Don't forget to check out all the Digital Doodles DT projects here! Also, if you want to sign up for Caring Hearts Blog Hop this Saturday, 10/23/10, please email me you name & blog address. There's $25 GC prize from Wplus9 stamp company!! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

What a sweet card, especially now that you explained the symbolism of it. It's so hard not seeing family, isn't it. I hope you'll find a flight home soon!
