Think Pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it sure hits home.  I know several survivors including my Aunt Renee.  I have also lost loved ones to this terrible disease.  Many of the women in my family have been diagnosed with the Breast Cancer Gene, too.  It's bittersweet knowing that someone you love has greater than an 80% chance at getting Breast or Ovarian Cancer.  I am so thankful for the technology that is out there to diagnose and hopefully all of the research will result in a cure someday.

Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week as we "Think Pink".


Aunt Renee, you are my hero, a true survivor, this card is for you!!!  It's sweet, simple and seeing how hard you fought and won, it gives us all hope!!!


Ingredients:
Colors:  Whisper White, Regal Rose
Accessories:  Non-SU Ribbon Punch, Billboard letters die cut, Stripes Embossing Folder,  Shimmer Paint in Frost White, Bakers Twine, Basic Pearls

Happy Stamping,
Krista
