Breast Cancer Month

October is Breast Cancer month.  I will display this on my blog for the entire month!  This is very near and dear to my heart.  Two years ago while having a routine mammogram I got that dreaded call.  We have " we have an area of concern" we would like for you to come in to the breast center and have an ultra sound.  Not knowing exactly what that meant I was in shock. 

I went in had the ultra sound seemed like for ever all alone with my husband in the waiting room I get moved in to an office where there was a doctor sitting.  She said,  we have found a lump on your left side and about an inch in size.  We don't think it looks like cancer but we want to watch it and have you come back in 6 months.  I waited and prayed, and prayed over that next six months. 

Talk about torture over that time.  Low and behold the appointment came around.  They took another mammogram followed buy more picture, followed by 3-d mammogram then an ultrasound again.  Again the whole time by myself hubby in the waiting room wondering was it bad news.

Luckily, by the grace of God it was not cancer.  I will still have to be monitored every year and the lump is still there but with God's grace.  It will not grow it will just be there. 

I was extremely lucky several of my dearest friends were not so lucky.  They got the dreaded Cancer diagnosis.  I am so honored to have these beautiful ladies in my life and love them both dearly.

Beth,  Janis and Pattie you guys rocked and beat cancer!!!!!  You are awesome ladies and I love you dearly!!!

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …
