CANCER AWARENESS BLOG HOP(E)

A BLOG HOP(E) FOR THE CAUSE


Welcome to our Cancer Awareness Blog Hop(e) to raise awareness.

This group of gals/guys.... most of us don't even know one another.... have banned together because of a blog request created by Michelle over on her blog Inside My Own Private Idaho to create a Blog Hop(e) to raise awareness amongst our paper craft friends and family. Thanks Michelle!!

Hop on through and view the cards and projects created by these wonderful ladies/gents. Get inspired and remember....mark your calendars....no matter your age it is sooo important to do your monthly Breast Self Exam. Here is a terrific link to register to receive your monthly, BSE Reminder ,in your e-mail. I have been doing it for a couple of years and find it very helpful. On a side note...most of us think of Breast Health as being a singularly female issue, however, my bestest buddy growing up had his issues with Breast Health and had a lump or two removed from his breast..ahem...chest...sorry buddy...several years ago...so...for those guys out there reading this...you might want to look into this for yourselves as well!!


Let me tell you a little about my card today. I used Sunshine's Stamps Boobie Bunny and sentiment October is: for the card since they were created to raise awareness regarding Breast Health Month. I have paper pieced Boobie Bunny and coloured her with my Bic's and Sharpies. I have used my Sakura Jelly Roll Clear Pen on her lips and the Breast Health Ribbons on her dress and ears. I also added teenie, tiny adhesive rhinestones to her earrings.

The designer paper is from a pad I picked up recently at Michael's. It is from Amanda Blu and its her Beatrix Manor paper pad...I really like this paper because its so nice and bright and is two sided. There is also a little bit of bling on the paper itself to add just the right amount of sparkle. The two papers used on the card are simply the coordinating sides of the same piece.


I used my Memento Dew Drop Angel Pink ink with a sponge dauber on Boobie Bunny and on the die cut inside the card. I outlined the October is: sentiment with one of my Sharpies. The ribbon is from Michael's and the brad in the center is from the Dollar Store. The flowers are a present from one of my wonderful stamping buddies in PA - they are Bazzill Wings - Bitty Blossoms. Finally, I used my hearts border punch from Martha Stewart on the inside paper to give it a little oomph and the inside sentiment is Sunshine's Stamps Feed Your Faith sentiment, again created as inspiration for our Boobie Bunny cards. Hope you like this card and it makes you smile a little when you see her. I am going to pop her in the mail along with the link for the BSE Reminder to one of my girlfriends.

Here is the list of wonderful gals/guys who are taking part in today's Cancer Awareness Blog Hop(e)! Hop on through and please leave comments to let us know you were here! It's so nice to hear what you all have to say!
