What Cancer Cannot Do

Most {if not all} of us have been/will be touched by cancer at some point in our lives. I often think of my friends and family members who have battled against some form of cancer. Some have lost their battle while others still fight.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month is about to begin, and Stacy is teaming up with a family friend's breast cancer team, Trekkin' for the TaTas, to help them raise money for the Arizona Breast Cancer 3-Day. For the entire month of September, Stacy has been donating 10% of all sales from The Scrapbooking Cottage to their fundraising efforts. Be sure to stop by the store as there still are a few more days in September {plus, as an added bonus to you, she is offering free shipping as well}!

My card for today uses Mercy's sketch from last week, MTSC40. I kept the card simple so as to highlight the sentiment, What Cancer Cannot Do. While searching online for some small crochet embellishment patterns, I ran across this one for an awareness ribbon. I used embroidery floss to crochet my pink ribbon and stiffened it prior to attaching it to my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
