Link Up For Pink "Pink Hope" Blog Hop!!


Hello and welcome to Link Up for Pink’s first “Pink Hope” Blog Hop!! As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but here at LUFP, we want to bring Breast Cancer Awareness to our crafty friends all year long. We want to get the message out to all women about Breast Cancer and the importance of early detection with regular self-breast exams and mammograms.

If you arrived from Joanie's blog you are on track. If you want to hop along, please start at the Link Up for Pink’s blog.

We are so happy that you are joining us today. The Design Team and invited guests will share beautiful projects and most of all raise awareness.

Our sponsors today are Scrapbook Stamp Society and Touched By A Butterfly. One lucky winner will receive a $12 voucher to Scrapbook Stamp Society and a BCA Printable Digital Kit from Touched By a Butterfly.

I am so honored to be asked to be a part of Link Up for Pink’s first hop promoting breast cancer awareness. It's a cause near and dear to my heart. My cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and has recently endured a double mastectomy. I made this digital card to send to her.


I used a digi from Scrapbook Stamp Society and papers and embellishments from Touched By A Butterfly's Breast Cancer Awareness digital/printable kit:


There were so many awesome images and papers, I had a hard time choosing!! I ended up using all of the papers to make the bottom banner.


I used Photoshop Elements to put the card together, as well as to color the adorable digi.


"Brave is beautiful" is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamp set. I love this sentiment...so true.


So make sure you leave a comment on each stop. So let’s get hopping, celebrate courage and strength, and most importantly spread some Pink Hope. Your next stop on the Pink Hope Blog Hop is Melissa. Here is the entire line-up in case you get lost along the way:

  1. Wow I am first to make a comment, maybe because it's late at night, cuz I'm watching Big brother after dark! I know nuts!! Susan is probably watching too, LOL!

    This is a pretty card, and a great card for a great cause. The image is just adorable, her eyes are so big!
    I love Brave is beautiful, because it is.

    Hugs, Pam
