Breast Cancer Awareness Hop Oct 1

We are doing a Breast Cancer Awareness Hop because the month on October is all about Breast Cancer Awareness. I am sure like myself everyone either knows someone or are one of the ladies that have either recovered or are going through breast cancer. Our hop is just to unite as a group that we all support Susan B Komen Foundation and the importance of early detection. If you came by my blog today I would encourage you to go back to the beginning at Heartfelt Designs Blog and start the hop from there and if you came from Carol's Cardstock Scissors and Glue then you are hopping in the right direction. For my cards I use the Me & My Big Idea Mambi Pink Kit to do my projects in. On my first card I also used some of the We R Memory Keepers Doiles that I inked using Tim Holtz Lipstick Distress Ink along with some of the My Minds Eye Happy Go Lucky Twine. to decorate the front of my card with. I took my chipboard "Pink Party" and placed in on pop dots.
My 3x3 gift tag was made from scrap paper from last year, along with a sticker from the Me & My Big Ideas Mambi Kit and some of the twine. I am going to be using it on a gift I have for a dear friend. Please continue on the hop by going to Linda's Crafty Piece of Heaven I am sure you will find lots of great inspiration, wonderful tutorials and some giveaways along the way. I would love for you to leave a comment and become a follower of my blog but more importantly make sure to take care of yourself and have regular scheduled mammograms.

  3. Pam, I can always come to your blogsite to find joyful projects even on tough subjects like breast cancer. I love the HOT pink on these cards and having a PINK PARTY, that's just a Hoot(er)!! My friend Linda (on my blog) had a pre-chemo party for all of her friends to see her wigs and new haircut. Such strength in these women. Thanks for being so ... uplifting!
