Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 



Each October when Breast Cancer Awareness promotions start popping up I am reminded of my dear friend that I shaved my head for during her battle with breast cancer.  Praises be, she was an overcomer and today is cancer free.  So very thankful for her healing!!


Today's card is in honor of her and inspired by 3 challenges...

Time Out Challenges // #224 ...A theme challenge!!  In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, Friendships, and Encouragement.  So...not only am I making a card but I am also honoring my dear friend and the fight she fought and won.

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI554 ...A cupcake challenge!!  With a color combo of hot pink, black, and white.  The perfect combo for this month of honoring and remembering those who have, had, and are battle breast cancer.

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT577 ...A sketch challenge!!  Pumpkins were an option for this challenge but I decided against them.  Why?!?  Mainly because this was a  great sketch for showcasing my take on the Breast Cancer Awareness theme!!




Card #2 was inspired by 1 challenge...

Color Hues Challenge // #TCH50 ...A color challenge!!  The color duo for this challenge is purple and orange!  I went with a floral theme because I am over Halloween card!!  Hope that is a-okay!?!

Deb, what great news that your friend is a survivor! I belong to a group called Chemo Angels that sends cards each week to patients undergoing chemo therapy.
