Breast Cancer Awareness

October is breast cancer awareness month and I when I saw the limited supply challenge on splitcoast to make a girly card, I thought of these stamps right away because I need to send a card to my SIL. She beat breast cancer ten years ago but this year has been struggling with a new form of cancer and just completed a round of chemo treatments.

I used the sketch from Midnight Madness challenge 24, you'll find details here. I made the card mostly in shades of pink, with just a touch of green (for the leaves on the roses on the robe).

This robe and bunny slippers just look so comfortable, don't they? Its a shame you can't tell from the photo, I used a variety of twinkling H20s to paint the robe so it looks as though it is made of satin. I have a wonderful pair of satin pajamas that is lined on the inside with flannel for warmth and this stamp always makes me think of those cozy pjs.

And can you see the roses by my window? The roses outside are almost gone now with winter on its way, so my DH brought me a mini bouquet of roses for the inside. I had to get those in the picture! Thanks for looking.

Stamps: Impression Obsession robe and bunny slippers, Technique Tuesday breast cancer set (ribbon), Stampin' Up Belle Toile (BG), Itty Bitty Backgrounds (roses on kiwi kiss paper)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Neenah solar white, shimmery white paper
Ink: Black stazon, gold EP, white craft, variety of reinkers
Others: Martha Stewart edge punch, oval nestabilities, cuttlebug vintage die, gold EP, rhinestones, paper piercing tool, twinkling H20s

Hi Peggysue! I'm sorry to hear about your SIL. I hope she is doing ok with her treatments. I had my mammogram last week in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My Mom had breast cancer when I was in high school. She's fine and had no issues since her double mastectomy. Your card is beautiful and I bet it does look like silk with the H2O paints. Well done on the sketch! Thank you for joining us again this week!

PeggySue I just love this card...the robe and the slippers are so pretty and absolutely perfect for your SIL. I hope she stays strong and battles this cancer and that all her treatments are successful. Cancer is such a terrible disease and I just lost a loved one to it last week. It tears at your heart strings! I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
Extra big hugs,
