Welcome!! This month's challenge was chosen to remind us all of the
In honor on October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to take this time to offer a few ideas of my own and allow you to view various others. You will be able to take these projects and have time to make use of them.
It seems now-a-days everyone of us has been touched by the disease. My grandmother had a total mastectomy a few years back - but she survived it!! She is a strong woman and to her that just made her the woman she is today. I believe this fits her pretty well: Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith. ~Author Unknown
*Think Pink, project must contain the color pink and some sort of inspirational/encouraging message pertaining to breast cancer....however you interpret this.
*The project must be your unique creation that was made specially for this challenge, after this post AND only one entry per person, please.
*You project must contain as least ONE cricut cut.
Challenge Starts: Friday, September 3rd at 8 am CST
Ends: Monday, September 6th at 11:59 pm CST
Winner Announced: Tuesday, September 7th
Facebook Contest Begins: Tuesday, September 7th (lasts 24 hours)

We have a group locally called Survivor Sisters and they will use your cards to encourage woman that have just been diagnosed.
On to the fun!!!
Here are my creations:
I decided to create 2 cards for today!
Card is an A2 size....my favorite now-a-days!
Mirror/Border cut @ 3.28 x 3.15
French Manor Cart
Ribbons cut @ .35 x .54
Stand & Salute Cart
Mirror cut from vellum, clear with swirls
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I can’t see myself at all.
Others envision a different me,
Why couldn’t my body just be?
Wrapped with cloth from left to right,
It is a daunting sight.
I am strong, I will recover,
In this dark I see a glimmer.
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I am the most beautiful woman of all.

Check out her blog and play along:
She is offering blog candy for the winner, which will be chosen randomly!!
She graciously asked me to be a guest designer and I happily agreed. I wanted to create something other than a card....here's what I came up with!!
~~Honestly today came quickly, I wanted to make a video to show you how I made this bucket, but that will have to be another post......keep your eyes posted~~
OLD: the wire used the make the handle...it is floral wire and I have not used it in quite some time
NEW: the red polka dot paper - bought a long time ago, but never used it
RED and BLUE: you can see
BORROWED: the idea, I "memory banked" it, I while back and finally decided to try it
The side "hinges" are actually a "tag punch", folded in half. The bottom edge and top bucket edge is punched with the "floral lace" punch by Martha Stewart. I chose that punch because another requirement to the challenge was there had to be some sort of floral element.
