SOC Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop


Helllo All and Welcome to the SOC Blog Hop for Breast Cancer.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! So in honor of this event--I, along with some talented crafters, have teamed up to honor and celebrate the men and women in our lives that inspire us with their strength in the battle against Breast Cancer.
If you are coming from RJ's blog than you are right on track. If you just dropped in today by happenstance why don't you join us by starting at the beginning w/ RJ you won't want to miss all the Awesome Inspiration and FUN throughout the hop and guess what, a little birdie told me that our hostess Cheryl was giving away some FANTASTIC Blog Candy to one lucky winner who will be randomly drawn. To be eligible for that prize, you must comment on all the blogs by Monday, Oct. 10 at 11:00pm EST and the winner will be posted on all the participating blogs on Friday, Oct 14. 


I to will be offering blog candy and I will tell you how to become eligible for that in a minute but first let's get to my project.  I decided to make a card for a lady at my husband's job who just became diagnosed w/ Breast Cancer. She is fighting the Good fight and doing it w/ smiles all the way, I wanted to let her know that the Slaughter Crew has her in our prayers and we have her back through this tough time in her life.


I love making the criss cross card, and I thought it would be a perfect card to make for a time like this. Because the way it criss crosses reminds me of how the pink ribbon that represents Breast Cancer Awareness criss crosses!

Ribbon: Found @ Michael's  
Punch: Recollections
 Pink Ribbon Sticker : Also found @ Michael's
