Link Up for Pink Breast Cancer Awareness


Hello Friends!



 None of you would know this, and it is probably time I told you all.

When I was pregnant with my last baby Darcy now 2, I found a lump bellow my right breast. It was sore because of the baby bump pressing against it. After many tests it was found to be a non cancerous tumour, but one that could turn bad if not removed. I had two major operations to remove it the last one about 6 months ago. All is well now, but it was a pretty scary and unpleasant experience as a whole.



I am showing you a new pink card for the Link up for Pink Blog Today!




I have made an Easel Card and Have left the Message area blank for the buyers own message!

I made it for an order a few days ago, hoping that I would be able to use it for a challenge.



I have used this Half face image by Sherri Baldy on a lot of cards and I still love it! You can find it HERE

I have coloured with my Promarkers!



Pretty Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, Seam Binding Bow, Pins and Charms from my stash.




Tim Holtz Butterfly Border Die, I have used again! Love it!



And lastly some pretty laces and pearls.


I hope you like my card today


Big Hugs Julie xox

Hi Julie, Glad all is well now with you, not a nice time at all. I've just been given the all clear for 18 months before i need to go in for my next MRI (unless i'm worried before hand of course) That feeling of being told you're all clear after so much time and worrying, is like a huge weight being lifted and I walked out of that hospital with such a smile on my face, like all my Christmases had come at once. I'm sure people must've thought i was nuts as i was smiling uncontrollably...hehe...So big big hugs and what a wonderful card to support this cause. This is the half face I heard of then :) Stunning colouring as per normal, love the soft colours and again every embellishment fits perfectly x
