In The Pink Boobie Love and a Give Away

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers today is the launch of our new challenge over at In The Pink and  our theme this week is add a ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Our sponsor this time is

*****
  Prize a £10 voucher


I was delighted to make this card as this is something very close to my heart as 20 years ago this month I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer it was a horrible time however I came through it with the great support from a Brilliant Consultant , My family, Wonderful Friends and  Work Colleagues who were all amazing. It gave me a very different outlook on life and  I now try to live life to the full and concentrate on the things that mean the most to me. I'm thankful for every day.
For my Design Team card I used a Saturated Canary stamp called Boobie Love if I remember it was a freebie given by Saturated Canary several years ago to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness. I hope you like her.

Wonderful card Carole. I had breast cancer in 2013, I'm all clear now but this cause is very close to my heart, I sell my cards to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care. I'm sure your card will be much appreciated by someone battling this terrible disease. Sorry I haven't been by recently a massive DT project and over a week with a sore throat & cough has seen me without much time or at my best. Creative Blessings Tracy x
