Last month, here in Kansas City, we had the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. I walked in this 5K race with two cousins, a cousin-in-law (who is a survivor), and a very close friend. It was a beautiful morning and we do this for many reasons but one of those reasons; my two cousins lost their mother and an aunt. (my cousins) Many of us have lost family and friends but we also have family and friends who have survived. In fact, we hear about more people surviving now than we ever did before which is very encouraging.
Anyway, we had a beautiful day for a great cause and we did make it to the finish line……
How fun is this photo of all our shoes? My cousin, Tammy, is a nut and she had this great idea. We better coordinate next year!!!
So this year, we decided to create a stamp set in celebration and recognition of breast cancer awareness. We will be sharing cards throughout October, but not just this month because everything doesn’t just stop this month. Research, fund-raising, treatments, etc. continue throughout the year so we will be sharing cards throughout the year as well.
Well, you all know I love pink so these cards are pretty easy for me. I did add black as an accent color on this card. Three pink ribbons were stamped, cut out, and popped up. A clear rhinestone was added to the center of each ribbon for a little added bling.
I added the sentiment, Fight like a Girl, on this card layered in the same colors as the card. Love this sentiment! Girls/women are tough and I think it is proven everyday.
We thank all of you who work tirelessly supporting a cause whether it is this one or not. We all have to choose the cause(s) that we give that little “extra” to as we can’t possibly spread ourselves thin enough to cover them all. We send love and prayers to those who are going through their own battles and hope you continue to “fight like a girl.”
