October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month...
(yes, I changed my blog background to pink)
Earlier this year, my best friend called to tell me that her mom had been diagnosed with breast cancer. I was stunned. Luckily, she was able to "only" have to have two lumpectomies and went through some radiation treatments. She was cleared earlier this summer (yay!).
I had made this card for her after searching Pinterest.
I used my Cricut. I welded 2 hearts together to make the card base (can't really see the flesh colored base here). Then I used the Life is a Beach cartridge to cut out the bikini top. (I had to trim the bikini top a bit to fit the heart.) I cut 2 rectangle pieces from kraft paper and ran it through the Big Shot with the Swiss dot embossing folder then rounded the corners and bent it like a band-aid.
I kinda wanted to lift her spirits...although my husband said it might make her sad. I haven't talked to her since, but my friend said she liked the card. That is always a touchy part of having to go through any health related issue. I know I use humor to get me through hard times...this card wasn't humorous, but I can't even imagine the difficult time some people have dealing with the unknown.
Take care of those girls, girls!!!
