World Card Making Day & BCA #14

Today is World Card Making Day. Here in Michigan the leave are falling and the colors outside a beautiful. The weather is cool and crisp and it's a wonderful day to stay inside and craft. Expect to see several post from me to day in my quest to finish my 17 more projects by October 14th to end the Link Up for Pink Link Up Party.

We have all be touched by breast cancer in some way. It could be a personal battle, a family member, a friend or a neighbor. Remember 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with the disease. Whether it be the "good cancer" (Stage 0) or the "bad" (higher stages) cancer is cancer and it's not something you want to experience. Be sure to schedule and keep your yearly mammograms. Also know your family history. Everything comes into play for diagnosis and treatment!

This image was offered as a freebie from Saturated Canary. I printed her "big head" style and colored her w/Prismacolor pencils. The striped designer paper is from Melody Ross and the others were from single sheets I had in my stash. I added a small glittery flower in her head made with a Fiskars punch and bling. Her eyes are highlighted with Glossy Accents. The image is popped up with foam tape. Finally I added my own sentiment which I colored w/an ombre effect and an organza ribbon. I'm almost halfway there so please stay tuned. I'll be sharing more creations and more about my battle with breast cancer.
