Think Pink Sale
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we're doing our part to raise awareness. We've got a special Think Pink SALE, with all in-stock stamps and dies 20% off October 1 - 16. And to sweeten the deal, Verve will donate 10% of proceeds from this sale to the
Susan G Komen For the Cure foundation.
A little something for you... a little something for the cure!




Happy Monday!  I am using Verve's Believe and Words of Wisdom stamp sets.  I combined the images with some Spellbinder's dies and Verve's Curvy Bookplate and From the Heart dies.   I layered some MME  Blush designer papers all in wonderful hues of pink.  I used a dress form die and added a 1/4" grosgrain ribbon Breast Cancer Ribbon topped with a tiny heart and pearl.   I added a seam binding bow and some fun pink and white pearls my dd bought for me with her own money! Cool, huh?  She is only 17 so I thought that it was very thoughtful and sweet of her!  I am using the sketch from MOJO Monday 209!    As always thanks so much for hopping by!


I know no one whose family has not been affected by this terrible disease.  In the past few years my family members have experienced a breast cancer scare and  one a double mastectomy.    I just know one day a little girl will walk hand in hand with her mommy into a museum and in a clear box will be the pink ribbon.  The little girl will ask...."What was the pink ribbon for, mommy?"  The mom will say...."It represented HOPE and the WORLDWIDE FIGHT for a CURE.....and, it WORKED!"    

                                                                                                                                                                                 

And last but not least, a new month brings a new Stamp of the Month...
