Hope - Breast Cancer Awareness

We all know October is breast cancer awareness month. I am a 5-year survivor and I thank God everyday for giving me the strength to weather that storm. I come from a family of survivors including my mother, aunt and several cousins. One thing that I do every year is provide my oncologists office with cards to send to patients that are particularly need "pick-me-up." Hope is the one thing all cancer patients need. Why don't you commit to making at least one breast cancer awareness card this month?

My card was created using dies from Frantic Stamper, Inc. I started with a Kraft cardstock base and added a solid pink mat. Next I attached a raveled edge burlap piece and attached it with matching pink staples. Next using a small scrap and the Frantic Stamper Instant Photo 3 x 4 Photo Card die (FRA-Die-09148) also cut from Kraft cardstock, I attached it to the card base. Using the Small Hope and Ribbon die (FRA-Die-09216) and the Frantic Stamper Large Support Ribbon (FRA-Die- 09214) were the finishing touches!

  2. Your cards are great. I am sure they will lift someone's spirits! As you know, I am also a survivor - 3 years now! When I came home from the hospital, I got a pink heart pillow made my this 80 year old lady. It had a strap on it so you could wear it and it provided a cushion between the car seat belt and my very tender surgical site. I was thinking of making some of those to donate to the hospital too.
