Triumph Over Fear
Where there is a sketch for a round card, I am there LOL! Thus my playing along with this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge. I love how they are promoting Breast Cancer Awareness month. In addition, if you play along and use pink on your card for each week's challenge this month, you get entered into a draw to win some blog candy. Great sketch, great cause, great time to play along :)
I immediately thought of Verve's Words of Wisdom set when I saw the theme as there are a few sentiments in that set that are perfect for the fight against breast cancer (or any other form of cancer for that matter). I chose this sentiment because it is a statement I'm sure every woman who has received "the news" has had to live through.
A good friend of mine as well as a teacher and parent at our school have worked through their own battles against breast cancer, and thankfully they are all survivors :) That being said, please take full advantage of your annual mammogram because in each case I've mentioned above, it was early detection that saved their lives. Yes, it's (o)(o) to (_)(_) for a bit, but it's well worth it!! Enough said, I'll get off my soap box now :)
My rolled roses look like they haven't been watered for a while as I'm still trying to master rolling these puppies up so they look a bit more put together. If anyone has any tips, I'd love the advice! Until then, hopefully the half pearl in the center focuses your eye there LOL!
Have a great day. I'm off to teach Sunday School this morning and then we are having our Thanksgiving dinner tonite so it's going to be a busy day. Bonus: I get to continue my thanksgiving by celebrating some acknowledgements: I won last week's JUGS challenge with this card and was selected as a runner up at the Friday Mash up with this card.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers, and to the rest of you, thank you for stalking, reading, commenting on my blog. You are all part of what I am thankful for (((hugs))).
