A Pink Hello

I have to say that October is one of my favorite months for many many reasons, not the least of those reasons is that everyplace you look is pink! It gives me a thrill to see NFL players sporting pink shoes ans bandages, pink pizza boxes, and rubber bands! The support of National Breast cancer awareness month has become a part of our culture in a way that brings us all together in a way few other things have!

 Now I did not make this card for that purpose, it was made as an example of stamping images in unexpected colors, like pink mushrooms! For me that leads to thoughts of everything pink! Each year I get a pink hair extension and all proceeds go to a charity. I also tend to buy all manor of pink items as well, {like I need an excuse to shop} Target has a section of pink goodies in their dollar area, I picked up several tin buckets and other trinkets, that's the kind of shopping I can feel good about!
 What do you do to support the fight? I really want to hear what you have to say!

Good morning, Shantaie, did you use your sewing machine to do the poking? It looks so even!

Yes aewing machine! my other favorite way is to use one of those plastic cross stitch forms, they are always under a dollar and you can see thru them!
