Inking Pink Awareness Hop!


Welcome to our Inking Pink Awareness Hop! Our paper crafting community spans the globe and brings all of us together under a common roof. We are grandmothers, granddaughters, mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, best friends, wives, cyber-friends and design team teammates. Many of us have family or friends touched by breast cancer and all of us want to encourage all of you to check yourself!

This hop will take you around the world, so please sit back with your morning coffee or evening tea and celebrate our stories and projects with us. Some of your fellow crafters along the hop are even offering blog candy! Please give a little comment love to each and every crafter along the way. We hope you enjoy our hop, and most of all we all want YOU to give yourself the greatest gift and do a self-check tomorrow. The more you do it, the more breast aware you will be!

Our hop starts at Patricia's http://pattyandcharlie.blogspot.com blog so if you started some where else please start there.  You don't want to miss what we have for you.

Here is what I came up with for this awesome hop!  I hope you enjoy it!  I used my Rio and Betty Emo stamps and masked them together!  The sentiment is my own as well.  The paper is from Stampin' Up from 2006!  Can you believe it, four years ago!  I used Diamond glaze on the sentiment give it some umph! The Ribbon is from American Crafts!  I had lots of trouble uploading this, I hope you all enjoy it. I loved the pinkness of it!  
  

Now, I just want to say how very honored I am to have been a part of this blog hop.  I do not have a cancer story for you, I have never experienced a family member going through this neither.  I feel blessed in that aspect.  I give kudos and big hugs to all that have gone through hardships and the fears and worries that come with Cancer.  I know you are all strong women and I am happy to be a part of that circle!  Congratulations to all that have overcome and to those that are still battling just know that there is a sisterhood out there behind you all the way and fighting for the cause!  Leave a comment, for a chance to win six digis of your choice from my online store.  I wish you all health, happiness, and above all love and respect!
  
Thanks or stopping by and sharing this moment with us.  Please head on over to Bonnie's blog and share your time with her!  

In case you get lost along the way here is a list of hops.

Very inspirational blog hop, so many touched with cancer. I had it at the age of 28, mighty scary with 3 little babies all under the age of 6. 18 years later that cancer is gone, but I have to say its not far from the back of my mine, if... and where.... will it return. Scary.
Thanks for this great blog hog and bringing more awareness.
