You Are Remarkable


Time Out Challenges celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Challenge #67, a special challenge with the Theme of Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship, with an optional optional technique twist:  embossing and/or use pink.

CASual Fridays is the generous and dedicated sponsor of this special challenge. Please head over the the TIME OUT Challenge Blog to get all the details.

Here is my take:

I love this Flourishes stamp that I have had for years. The beauty of it is, you can customize it for any type of Cancer Awareness or sign of hope for any cause. The wonderful sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Hand Lettered Encouragement.

Cancer touches the lives of most people we know in some way. I am a breast cancer survivor myself, am eternally grateful for all of the funding that goes into research, and all of the events and other ways there are to support it. The fight is critical, but we need to remember, that finding a cure for ALL cancers is the ultimate goal.

The image is watercolored with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

CWS#7 - The sentiment is such a powerful one to me. This card was made for a dear friend who has been through hell and back on her cancer journey. She truly is remarkable.


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope your day is remarkable!

This is wonderful. I love how the hope ribbon is so cleverly built into the skirt. Your ofset placement of the rectangle is also so stylish.

What a gorgeous gown; one I'd love to have hanging in my wardrobe (along with the figure to wear it *grin*). The big sentiment: perfect! A powerful card in every way!
