Think Pink...

Afternoon Crafty bloggers! Today I would like to share my card I made for Breast Cancer awareness.  I found a new blog today by a lady called Dawn – please click on the link to read her story.  She & I both have Mother’s going through breast cancer treatment. You can enter Dawn’s challenge to raise money for this very worthy cause.  This is very close to my heart after losing an Aunt to cancer, having my Daughter go through cancer and now my Mother having had a double mastectomy and having radiotherapy treatment.  I know that this awful disease touches many of our lives.

I would like to add this card into the following challenges: 

Dawn's crafting -Think Pink

Please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you!

Until next time...

Boo Boo be do!

Hope all is good & well in your neck of the woods?

I had a request to make a Betty Boop Birthday card for a customer’s Mother & I must say I enjoyed putting this one together. I love black & red combination & along with 'blinging' the card up with my red gems, Betty was coloured with Promarkers and then red glitter glue added to her dress & shoes.  The little white flowers come from Polkadoodles & the red & black flowers came from my stash.  For the sentiment, I used the stamps from Crafter’s Companion.

I’m slowly getting back into the swing of crafting again in between helping my other sisters with taking care of Mum.  She starts her radiotherapy next week.  Here’s hoping that the rads kills the five nodes that are left with cancer in.  We have learnt now that Mum has an aggressive cancer that WILL return anywhere in her body.  She’s a strong minded lady so I know she will put up a fight!

Keep well,
Until next time,

Mandy J
