Pink Power Blog Hop


Hi all and welcome to Pink Power blog hop. You should have arrive here from the blog of one of my favorite card maker, Julie Ebersole.

Chaitali from Cuts, Crop & Creativity has rounded up some of her crafty friends to help spread breast cancer awareness. This is a cause close to her heart after her mom was diagnosed with it earlier this year. She designed the Pink Power set for her mom with lots of love. And, she's sponsoring this hop by providing us with this set. We also have some of the Verve DT playing along.

When I first saw this set, it made me think of my aunt Jannie who passed away a few years ago from BC. She's like a sister to my mom. I have to admit this is the kind of card that you wish you never have to send. 


I keep the design simple. I want to capture the quiet elegant, bravery that many of the women showed when facing this disease.

I also want to mention that if you do make card for BC month, please consider to participate in SCS Hope You Can Cling To event and send in your cards. Simply click on the link to find all the details of this event.

My hope is that none of our family have to face this. And for those who has family member or friends facing this, I pray for strength and healing. From here please hop on over to my talented friend, Stacey.
