JUGS 53

This month begins Breast Cancer Awarness. For those of you that know me this is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago. I just had my three year mammogram last week and instead of being told, "I'll see you in six months" I was told you'll either get a call or a letter. My letter arrived this weekend. I am very pleased that I am done with the every six months mammograms, taking horrible meds, and paying medical bills. Now maybe I can get my life back on track!!

I have really wanted to join in on some of the challenge blogs. I went searching today and JUGS is one that did something around Breast Cancer Awareness so I decided to join. The sketch is pretty simple, but boy did I ever have a hard time getting the sizes right!! I wanted to use my Cricut Pink Journey cartridge, I love the images.

Now, I didn't make this as a card. I can covert it to a card, or make it a postcard, use it on a scrapbook page, or as the topper of a calendar. I wanted it to be versitle enough so that when I change the sentiment from "Survive" to "Hope" or "Live" the women that I give this to can use it as a reminder to get their mammogram or do their self-examination.

I love how it came out and I hope you do too! Thanks for stopping by - have an awesome day!
