Be Strong

 this card is on the SPOTTED feature at 


Is this tooooo stinkin' cute?!?

Adorable stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. When I saw it released a couple of weeks ago, I immediately thought...No! The word Work Out is just cruel and my old body before its time (it really is the meds I have to take), doesn't get much exercise beyond walking the treadmill.
However..... I loved the image of the girl with dumb bells and the sentiments were quite cute and most of them would be appropriate for Breast Cancer Encouragement cards, which I make and give to women at Club Chemo  (ok, ok, it's the Oncology center but Club Chemo sounds more fun).

I stamped the boxing gloves, used Pixscan in my Silhouette software and made die cuts out of them. In love with my can take any stamp, make a cut file and size it however you like.
Used a little Hope for the embossing and the Silhouette for that tiny 1/4 inch awareness ribbon on her headband.

Just as a service announcement:  Have you done your self breast exam lately? 
No....while you are in the shower tonight think of me and this card, do the might just save your life!

I love this card....everything you did to it! I can imagine someone getting this card at "Club Chemo" and it putting a smile on her face. It's wonderful what you are doing for others that are fighting back. :-)
