Freshly Made for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I made a special card in honor of a relatively new friend of mine that I happened to meet through my Close to My Heart business.  I am rather pleasantly surprised by all the new friends I have made along my journey so far as a consultant.  I feel so blessed!

This new friend is a former consultant who has just fought the fight of her life against breast cancer, and I am so happy to say that she has beaten it!  There are far too many people I know who have battled and are still fighting this thing including my Aunt.  I unfortunately also know one who was not able to overcome it in this life.

I dedicate this card I made for Freshly Made Sketches 107 to all of the women who bravely do battle.





I used a new die cut and stamps from MFT (clear stamps, so I am linking up with Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge again!), Close to My Heart Chantilly Pattern Paper, Inks, CS, Sparkles Flourishes, and the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.

Next week I will have a special project related to this for you to see! 

Edited!  I just linked up with DL.ART's Linky Pinky Party for the month of October.  Go check out the pink HERE!
