For Tonia

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month & this year it hits close to home.  My sister-in-law was diagnoized October 2008 (about 2 weeks before her 49th birthday) and a spot was found on her liver while doing preadmission tests.  I am glad to say it will be a year and she is doing wondferful.  In fact, down at Duke where she travels from here every other week for chemo, they told her that if they were just seeing her they would declare her cancer free.  God does answer prayers.  So these are for her. 

The first is just SU Whisper White cardstock cut to fit in a 4x6 acrylic frame.  I took a crumbled paper towel & dabbed on Pixie Pink Ink covering as much as the cardstock as you want.  Then used the Butterfly punch on Pink Passion cardstock which I cut 5 3/4" long & 2" wide & using Basic Black Ink stamped the "One person...(Flight of the Butterfly Stamp Set #111564) beside it & then stamped the solid butterfly again using Pixie Pink Ink.  Turn frame on side & slide in then added a piunk sticky pad.                     
The second is a 4x6 card using SU Passion Pink & Whisper White (5 1/2" long
& 2" wide).  I cut the white with pinking shears & centered the white & glued.  Using the butterfly punched out of the above project (recycle stampers) glued to white, again using Basic Black Ink stamped the "Courage...(Courage Stamp Set #115330), dabbed over both with the Pixie Pink paper towel some, & then added the pink ribbon symbol. 

I hope these two items will give hope and support to someone you know and love..Lynette
