Easy Breezy "Pink" October

     October is the month to "Think Pink" and we're doing just that over at SheepSki Designs.  Our challenge theme for this month is "Use a Touch of Pink."  During this Breast Cancer Awareness month, and as a cancer survivor, I want to remind each one of you ladies to get those appointments scheduled for mammograms and checkups. 

     I'm celebrating a pink fall by using this gorgeous SheepSki Designs image called "Emmy's Breeze."

     I colored with my ProMarkers, and cut the image with a stitched die from Lawn Fawn.  The background is cut with my favorite Altenew die, making perfect polka dots with lovely texture.  Since I used it the first time about 3 weeks ago, I've done no fewer than 6 cards using it for the background.  I told you it was a favorite!  lol 

     The sentiment is printed and hand cut.  I added the large, white rose and a sheer pink bow, both of which made the card even more feminine.  This one was an absolute joy to color!

     I really hope you'll come and play along this month.  Spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness every day of October!  Early detection is the best defense we have and we can beat that disease with our power as women to support each other and make a difference.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
