Think Pink

As I am sure you are all aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I think most people will know someone who has had to deal with this disease and our thoughts go out to everyone who is currently battling with it.  As a ward sister, I was always full of admiration for the brave ladies who went to theatre for their surgery and always marveled at how courageous they were.  My card today is for all these ladies and I am sure they all appreciate a bit of bling:

The cute image is a free download from Nutcrafters Designs and I have coloured it with my copics.  I have used Marianne dies for the tag, butterfly and swirl and a MS punch for the border punch.  Flowers are Wild Orchid and the papers are Nitwits.  I have covered everything (almost!) in Stickles and added some gems and lace from my stash.  Oh yes I have done some stitching (not very straight!!) about time the old sewing machine got a look in though I must admit I think it was a bit shocked when I started sewing paper on it!!  I will enter the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Lace it Up
Cutie Pie Challenge - Bingo (Flowers, Punch, Lace)
Lexi's Creations - Pink for Boobies
My Sheri Crafts - Think Pink
The Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes as long as it Sparkles
Cuddly Buddy - Check it Out
Guylou's Inimitability - Breast Cancer Awareness
Jellypark Challenge - Add Pink and a Ribbon
Sassy Studio Design - Breast Cancer Awareness
Inky Impressions - Breast Cancer Awarenes and/or monochromatic
Tuesday Throwdown - Think Pink
Just Jolie - Think Pink Link Party

We're off to see Peter Kay tonight so looking forward to that, I'm making some soup to build me up for all the laughing.  Thanks for looking, take care xx
