Think Pink!


To celebrate National Breast Cancer Month, many challenges this week are incorporating pink, or ribbons, or breast cancer awareness themes. I used this adorable stamp set from Flourishes, Think Pink - I love it, because it has the ribbon hidden in some very girly items, like this flouncy dress. I colored this image with my copics (see DCRU challenge this week for coloring). My sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Melissa's sister is a breast cancer survivor, so this is a cause that hit's very close to home for their family. The Cuttlebug Spot joins in with their support by a Pretty in Pink challenge.

I have to tell you, I had my first mammogram a couple of months ago. I was really worried that is would be a scary experience (and I am a big baby at the doctor's). Ladies, it was so easy!!! So, if you have not had one because you think it will be awful, think again. Please get checked and encourage your friends to do the same!
