Pink Blessings

Pink Blessings - Today is the blog hop with Sew Many Challenges. We are showcasing the Sew Many Cards new releases for the the Thanksgiving Season. These new images are in the Sew Many Cards store and you can get them here.

If you arrived here from Darling Ho's blog when you are right on track. If you arrived here first, or got lost along the way, you can start and find the list on Sew Many Challenges Blog.

For my card, I have used Kasiah Pilgrim. Isn't she a cutie! Kasiah is one of the PJ Pals, but today she has actually changed out of her PJ's.

My DP is K & Company. I used some lace and distressed everything with Rangers tea dye and Antique linen. My sentiment is Studio G. The prearls were made with a bronze pearl pen.
My image was colored with Copic's and I used some stardust Stickles on her bonnet trim, collar, cuffs and Apron.
My flowers are Petaloo.

This month is Breast Cancer awareness month and Angela created this cute fellow to help. I want to encourage everyone to have regular mammograms. I went and had mine today.

I crop with a small group of ladies and Breast Cancer has already touched our group twice. We lost one of our treasured freinds a couple of years ago and another one of our ladies' daughter has it and is going through chemo. We are praying for a different outcome for her. All prayers for her would be much appreciated.
For my second card, I used the Bailey Bear breast cancer awareness Freebie that is available for a short time on the store blog. I will put a link at the bottom of this post, so that you can get it.

My image is colored with Copic's and again I used stardust Stickles on the ribbon.
I have the Tinkerbell Cricut cartridge and I thought it would be fun to use this image and to cross out the T and replace it with a P; making it Pink instead of Tink. I hope you like my little play of words. My DP is Al Fresco by Tapestry.

My tulle puff was made by scrunching a running stitch through the bottom of my tulle and drawing it up. The flowers are cut from stems and my white pearls are Want 2 Scrap.

The grand prize for this hop/challenge of Anything Goes is the entire new release plus a $15 gift voucher for the Sew Many Cards store. Also, I get to give both of the images that I used to someone who leaves a comment on this post.

Leave me a comment, then head to the finial stop on the hop which is the store blog, which is also where you can get the Breast Cancer Awareness Bailey Bear.
