Keep Calm and Fight On

Hey girls!  Are you having a great weekend so far?  Unfortunately I have to work all weekend but I was able to squeeze some time in to get this made Saturday night.  A coworkers daughter was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I wanted to make a card for her to send her.  She had Breast Cancer herself 2 years ago and is in remission, so for her own daughter to go what she has gone through is heartbreaking for her.  They have a strong family history and every woman in their family has had it.  She is just 36 years old!  Get those mammograms ladies!!

It is week two for the pretty pink  CR84FN color combo which is PERFECT for any breast cancer awareness cards and there are tons of challenges on SCS as well.

Since this has to go all the way to California and I am not mailing it, I did not put a bow in it.  That way it saves her on postage.  I have to say that I love the new MFT Die-namics SUPPORT HOPE dies and matching sentiment set.  I hope they come out with some pretty patterns for the bras...that would be too cute!

Here is the sketch for this week at Sweet Stop sketch challenge blog.

 Make sure you stop by the rest of the design team's blogs:

Thanks so much for looking,

What a wonderful card. I am sure this will lift her spirits. I love how you made it mostly flat so it can be mailed. Very smart my friend.

Wow! Gorgeous, Heather! Love your colors, the lacey doily behind the bra & the chevron stripes.
So sad that women are subjected to this horrible diagnosis. I think every person has someone in their family who has been touched in one way or another (my sister-in-law is in remission). I'm saying a prayer that she is healed.
Huggies ~
