Breast cancer awareness month

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday!  The weather here in Virginia is beautiful!  The leaves are starting to turn, sun is shinning, and my grandsons will be here this afternoon to spend the night and all day tomorrow as they don't have school tomorrow!  Plus my older grandson was here yesterday playing his favorite games on the computer.  Life is good!!  This is an easel card using Spellbinders dies for the shape of the card -- easy peasy!  The ribbon stamp and sentiment are from  I have been making lots of cards with this set of stamps in honor of breast cancer awareness month.  I am a 20 year survivor and I know how important it is to put the word out.  At Blue Ridge Foot and Ankle Clinic in Charlottesville, VA. our doctors bought all of the employees pink ribbon shirts to wear this month and I make a display of ribbon cards and tiny purses with candy in them to set in the office window.  One of our employees, Mary Ishee, lost her mother to breast cancer this year and another employee, Becca, found out her mother has breast cancer and is now undergoing chemo.  I am giving Becca "pink" cards to send to her mom.  I will be back uploading more "pink ribbon" cards soon!  Enjoy your day!

  1. What a unique card, using the die cut to stand up! The stamps are really nice, as are the colors. It's a great card for a great cause!
