Paint it Pink!

Hello Friends,

Today, I am sharing a card which was inspired by Chaitali's post HERE! She lost her mom recently to the breast cancer. She started this hop ( i am not a part of hop but couldn't help myself) to spread awareness about the importance of early detection of BC to cure it!

This post really touched my heart as my own mom is a BC survivor.  It's been 8 years since she is cancer free! Being a daughter that put me at higher risk of having BC myself. I am undergoing check up regularly and I urge you all to do the same. I have seen her pain and agony. There were days when she won't even get up from bed. I myself have shaved her head after second chemo with a hope that her hair will grow back. And they did! Her BC was detected in early stage so we could fight it off. She is a strong woman, her faith and positive attitude did miracle. I am so proud of her and I hope to inherit the same spirit and attitude towards life.

So, I dedicate this card to my mom and all the women fighting BC. Keep fighting, never give up because as Dr. Seuss said "Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem." 



I have used Verve stamps for sentiment and peerless water colours for background!. This design is influenced by Amy's card HERE!

Chaitali is also an illustrator for Verve Stamps and she has designed beautiful sets with superb sentiments HERE and HERE!

That is all for today. Take good care of yourself. Hugs!
