Welcome to the February Sistahood Blog Hop.
Each month on the 17th crafters from all over the globe come together along with Casual Friday's to bring you new inspiration for card making and to remind you to check the SISTAHS.
Breast Cancer is no picnic...
ask me how I know!
I stamped the large striped background...UGH!
(just use striped paper)
Die cut a White stitched oval and stamp the sentiment from the Girlfriend stamp set.
Itty bitty roses are diecuts, then a bit of Lime string for the leaves.
Finished the card with the Sistahood Sparkle sequins mix.
Now for my story...
I had a Mammogram in July 2013.
Found a lump in October 2013
You do realize that was only 3 months!!!!!
Cancer can grow and spread sooooo fast.
Make sure to check yourself EVERY month...how about today?!?
Double Mastectomy (because hey, I am not looking to do all this incert bad word again).
Six rounds of chemo.
1 year of Herceptin treatments every three weeks.
Yes I went bald (temporary thing).
Yes I learned to live for the moment.
Yes I learned to appreciate all I have.
Yes, cancer has changed me forever...in a good way!
No...It was no picnic and definitely not for sissies!
So there you have it.
My story and inspiration to remind you to check those Sistahs monthly.
