Pink Power Blog Hop

Hi friends!  Today I'm participating in a very special Pink Power Blog Hop.  Chaitali has rounded up some of her crafty friends to help spread breast cancer awareness. This is a cause close to her heart as she lost her mom to breast cancer earlier this year. Her mom was unfortunately diagnosed late at Stage 3.  Early detection is key to saving lives and we'd like to encourage you to please take time to care for yourself with regular checks and an annual mammogram!



So if you've been hopping along, you should have come by way of AJ's awesome blog. If you're just popping in and want to check out all the crafty goodness from the very beginning, the hop starts over at Chaitali's blog.



Chaitali designed the lovely Pink Power set with lots of heart while her mom was undergoing treatment.  I had every intention of making a card with the Pink Power set for today, but with last week's release and a couple of sick kiddos, I simply ran out of time.  So I'm sharing this card I made for this week's Mojo Monday 421 tall & skinny sketch. I pulled out Verve's new Just Breathe set because I hadn't had a chance to stamp with these cute little boxing gloves yet.  Wanting a bit of a chalkboard look, I embossed the boxing gloves and the be fierce sentiment in white on black card stock.  Next I colored over the white embossing with a light pink Copic for a hint of pink and then smudged white Mix'd Media Inx around the white for a chalky look. 

Next I started the blushing bride panel by first embossing the keep up the fight sentiment in black and then doing a little tone on tone stamping as a background with the fighter sentiment.  A bit of chevron ribbon and a pink awareness ribbon cut with the Ribbon Die finishes things off.  

GIVEAWAY:
Chaitali has a giveaway on her post today.  She's asking you to comment with the date of your most recent mammogram/Dr. checkup.  The 3 people with the most recent checkup date will win an "I Think Pink" package from Chaitali with a bunch of pink goodies, including the Pink Power set. 

That's all for me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!


Next up on the hop is Michele.
