FWF: Breast Cancer Awareness Hop(e)

Today, I have a very special post for you. Along with my usual Friday Unity Friends With Flair post, I joined a Breast Cancer Awareness Hop(e) started by my friend Michelle Phillippi, go to her blog to start the hop. As I'm sure you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. As it draws to a close, what better way to commemorate it than a Hop(e) with inspiration to keep it on our mind for the next year.

I'm dedicating this post to my Godmother, a breast cancer survivor. She is the epitome of kindness and all that is good. She is so positive and really helped shape the person I am today. So, I'm super thankful. This post is just a tiny little way to show how much I care and to celebrate my Godmother.


My card uses the Limelight sketch and product challenge from this week. The product we are supposed to use is butterflies. The prize is really amazing this week so I had to play along super quick. :) The butterfly on my card is from Unity's Bevy of Butterflies. The sentiment is from Unity's June 09 KOTM, it says "'Everyday holds the possibility for a miracle." Love Unity sentiments! The designer paper is DCWV Luxury Stack.

Next on the hop is my amazing friend Ryann. Thanks for joining me today and I hope that if you came for the Unity Friends with Flair, that you'll check out the Breast Cancer Awareness Hop(e). There's no prize or anything like that. It's just a bunch of us card makers spreading awareness and celebrating all the survivors.
