October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month…Have you gone pink yet?

Hi All,

Hard to believe another October is here and almost gone already.   The Supreme Court is back in session (time to watch that grand old movie “First Monday in October” again),  Halloween is looming and we’ve been celebrating National Breast Cancer Awareness month all month long!   Not that Breast Cancer isn’t something to be thinking about every month right ladies?   Ah,ah,ah…you guys too should be concerned, for yourselves and for the women in your life.   Monthly breast exams are no longer just a female thing!

Stampin’ Up!  with their wide array of colors, embellishments and stamps that all work “Pink” give you unlimited possibilities to share your support for Breast Cancer Awareness and those affected by the disease in your life.

If you would like a flyer of the following grid and information click for my SCRIBD files here (PDF) or here (Word version)- or this will get you the PDF here  Pink Grid Flyer.  Fellow Demonstrators – Please feel free to share, alter and use as needed though I wouldn’t object to a wee bit of credit or a link to my blog (LOL!).

*************************************************************************

Tip:  Besides the Ribbon of Hope stamp several other stamp sets are also perfect for inspiring Think Pink projects.  Inspired by Nature’s text stamp Live With Passion is the perfect text for Breast Cancer Projects and is available in several languages.   Just Believes text stamp “Some things have to be believed to be seen” has many applications as well.  Particularly in our search for a cure and our fundraising efforts to bring it to fruition.  Cottage Garden is another terrific stamp with flowers, butterfly and a great text “Love life & it will Love you back”.  All great stamp sets for creating Think Pink Projects.

In addition to the stamping info, here are a few links to resources and information about Breast Cancer and what you can do to help find a cure or find answers to questions for yourself or others you know affected by the disease.  

 

In last years post here there are even more links and general info as well as some stamping links for Ribbon of Hope projects.

And two last notes….

 

During the rest of October, anyone placing an order of $50 or more on my website that includes a product from my Think Pink flyer will be rewarded with free shipping.  I’ll also donate some Think Pink cards to a local Cancer Charity for any sized order placed in my online store.  

 

 I considered writing the whole post in hot pink but decided it was a bit too hard on the eyes even if it would be appropriate for the subject matter.  Hopefully the special deal will reward you for reading through it – LOL!

 

And lastly… here’s a fun video I also shared last year:

 

The smiles and the dancing and the hope are catching…aren’t they!

Hugs and Blessings – Jean
