Think Pink For Awareness!





I was Blog Hopping and came across a challenge at Slumber Cards to make a Pink Card and send it on to someone who needs cheering. As most know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and like so many, I have had loved ones affected by this disease. My Paternal Grandmother, who was a survivor for 16 years then had it metastisize into her lungs as so many do. This was my first experience. Then my best friend's mother..my other Mom...who was taken from us at the tender age of 42. Just 2 weeks ago, my Aunt was diagnosed and had a lumpectomy. Recently, they have decided to take more tissue because they are not positive that they got all of the cancer cells. She will have another surgery soon, so please say a prayer for her. Aunt Carol will be the receiver of this card. It is made with much love and HOPE!! I BELIEVE she will be cancer-free, just like her mother was!



I got a wonderful Suprise this morning as I Blog Hopped. I won a Blog candy at
In the Works...at smARTworks. It is a COOL set of Owl and Owl Sayings.....How lucky can I be?


I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Rubber Hugs,

Julie
