Chaitali has rounded up some of her crafty friends to help spread Breast Cancer awareness. This is a cause close to her heart because she lost her mom to it earlier this year.
You should have arrived here from Chaitali’s blog. If not, you’ll want to start there!
Every year, more than 180,000 American women are diagnosed with breast cancer. It is the most common cancer in women and the second-most deadly (lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer deaths in women). But in spite of these sobering statistics, there is every reason for hope. In scientific studies, annual screening mammography in women age 40 and older has reduced the death rate from breast cancer. In addition, advanced diagnostic tests and newer, more effective treatment options are making it possible for more and more women to survive this disease.
Sadly, I think we all know at least one person that has been effected by breast cancer. My Aunt passed away from complications of breast cancer but I also know several women that are strong survivors♡ Have you made your annual mammogram appointment? I have and I encourage you to if you haven’t. Early detection is key.
Chaitali designed the Pink Power set for her mom with a lot of love when her mom was undergoing treatment.
My card was inspired by THIS gorgeous one….
cardstock: recollections/110/white, stampin’ up pink pirouette stamps verve pink power ink: ranger archival black other: the twinery/charcoal, sequins by neat & tangled, mama elephant basic cuts, peerless watercolors
My goal was to keep the focus on the statement. I used 2 different Peerless Watercolor pinks and finished it off with Neat & Tangled’s Cotton Candy Sequins.
Now hippety hop over to the AMAZING Julie!
