When I saw this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch I knew exactly what I was going to do. I love it when an idea just pops into my head and I can run with it.
As I mentioned in my previous post the Ribbon Warrior campaign is hitting me close to home and I’m a firm believer that support from friends & family makes a huge difference.
I chose a color palette from the Love of Color – Mint, Linen and Ballerina. The mint background was embossed with the rose embossing folder and a stitched circle was added in Linen – I then stamped the ribbon and cut with the matching thin cut – I made a banner and stamped Hope as my sentiment. I finished the card with some sparkles.
I have a dear friend in breast cancer treatment so this card is on it’s way to hopefully cheer her along her journey.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month – this pink promotion has a special meaning in my life, but being in October makes it doubly special to me.
My mom had breast cancer, not once, not twice but three times. She had a masectomy after her second diagnoses and had been years cancer free before it snuck up and snatched her from our life on October 4, 2012. Cancer does that…just BOOM and someone you love is gone! She was such a brave fighter!
I was pretty excited when Close to My Heart brought back the retired Ribbon Warrior stamp set and thin-cuts for the October special. The bundle is offered at a 20% discount and I want you to know it can be used for way more than just pink ribbons.
I always schedule my mammogram in the month of October – as a way to honor my mom. I certainly don’t like it, but while changing in the dressing room I always think my mom would be so proud of me.
As a special thank you, when you purchase the Ribbon Warrior Bundle from my website I will gift you this exclusive Your Kind Heart Stamp Set. I will also donate all of my commission from the sale of this set to the American Cancer Society.
Let’s turn the world pink together!!!
