Breast Cancer Awareness Month


When my mom was in the fight for her life battling breast cancer we were determined to keep a positive outlook and sense of humor. While not always easy to do, that's what helped get us through it together. Blessedly, she is now a 17 year survivor. I've noticed when you're going through tough times some people don't know what to say. Me, I usually go for the joke or say something to make them smile to break the ice and let everything seem normal for just a little while. I think these cards do just that. They don't shy away from the topic and will hopefully make you smile.



These two are done in pinks for breast cancer.
The card on the left I've entered into 2nd Annual Link Up for Pink!
The card on the right I've entered into Made Especially For You Sketch Challenge



These 2 I've done in different colors, suitable for anyone battling any type of cancer. I'm planning to send all of these  along with some other cards to a group called Card Care Connection. My friend Jennifer posted about this group and I'm so glad to have found them. They collect handmade cards to give to cancer patients.

What I've used to make these cards:
Cutting files from Scraptastical Kreations
Peachy Keen Stamps
Trendy Twine
Really Reasonable Ribbon
Paper- Recollections, The Paper Studio, DCWV, Colorbok and various scraps from my stash
The Paper Studio bling
HotPaws writing tool
Perfect Pearls Pens
Various inks and chalks
and my Cameo

Stop by over at Scraptastical Kreations and leave a comment about the cards and you'll be entered to win a file of your choice! Thanks for stopping by!
