Breast Cancer Awareness Month

My card today is to promote breast cancer awareness. I used the free digi HOPE ribbon from Incy Wincy DesignsI printed it on pink card stock, cut it out then mounted it onto a Spellbinders Classic Ovals Lg.
I colored the border of the oval with liquid gold DecoColor pen. The lace, flowers, half pearls and rhinestones are from my stash.
  One look at my blog and you know Breast Cancer is a subject close to my heart. My dearest friend Susie is a 25 yr. survivor thanks to early detection by mammogram.  My daughter Donna was diagnosed with breast cancer on 1-11-11. She has only recently completed her treatments and is now in remission. Thankfully Donna’s cancer was discovered very early by mammogram. Even after they pin pointed where the tumor was neither she nor her doctors could feel it. This shows just how important it is to get your mammograms regularly.

You can also help save someone else’s life. In this dreadful economy many women, my sister included, have lost their medical insurance and can no longer afford their mammograms. On my side bar and at the bottom of every post I have links to the Breast Cancer site. Please click on one of those links whenever you visit, it only takes a second and each time you do a sponsor will donate funds so women can receive free mammograms.

Thank you for stopping by. I truly treasure each and every kind word you leave me.

Have an Amazing Day!

  2. Bernie, your card is just so lovely and great to hear that your friend of 25yrs and your daughter are both doing well and continue too, Mammograms should be free its not right that your sister should lose her insurance because of this awful illness there should be some sort of specalist charity to provide all funds l'll be clicking your link as l finish my posting:) Sandra H

  3. Beautiful card Bernie. As always, I'll do my daily click right now :) Hugs, Di xxx

  4. Hi Bernie

    A wonderful card .. .. I am pleased that your daughter is doing well .. .. and your friend too.

    I think it is so bad that mammograms should have to be paid for .. these should be free .. .. your daughter is proof that these are needed as a routine procedure.

    I have done my click for today!

    Love Jules xx

  5. This is gorgeous sweetie I love it, hugs pops x

  6. This is a beautiful card. I love the idea of printing it out on pink cardstock. It frustrates me so much that any woman should have to go with out a mammogram because they can't afford it. It should be free in my humble opinion. Great card for a wonderful organization.

  7. Gorgeous card Bernie for such a fabulous cause...Love it..Have a lovely weekend....

  11. A great cause indeed! Am glad your daughter and friend are ok :) Thanks for your sweet comment on my train and good luck!

  12. This is a true message of hope with this lovely card. I too have had friends and family effected by breast cancer - and your card will spread that message of hope.

    So happy to hear your friend and daughter has overcome that terrible disease.
