Think Pink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Good Morning Bloggers!

Last month I did some  fundraising for
 Breakthrough Breast Cancer

I had my head shaved & ran a couple of card making challenges!
As a result of this, I heard stories from many people about how they
or a  loved one had been touched by Breast Cancer!
I was so touched by some of the stories, I felt I wanted to send a card.
This is one of the cards I made!

The image & the sentiment are part of a set from

Here's a closer look at
I coloured the image with a combination of my 
Promarkers & Flexmarkers

The sentiment is one of several included.
I distressed it a bit, cut it out with a Spellbinders Die 
& threaded some lace through it.

Thanks to everyone's generosity, the
 total for my fundraising so far is an awesome 
If you haven't donated yet & you'd like to help me round up
my figures to a nice tidy sum, you can find out how to

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
