As you may or may not know, breast cancer awareness and finding a cure is a cause very close to my heart. As one of my friends mentioned to me, October is both a good month and a bad month for those of us touched by breast cancer. Bad month: I can't even break an egg without being bombarded with pink ribbons. Good month: the love and support that is shown for fighting cancer: those who have won, those who have lost, those who are helping others to fight. In that spirit, I've set a goal to try and complete (and mail!) all 33 challenges for Splitcoast's Hope You Can Cling to Challenges. I've gotten seven done so far, and will be spreading them out through the week. First up, for Lydia's Pink Critters challenge:
Encircled with Love challenge:
If these cards put you in a giving spirit, just in case you haven't heard, there are two big blog hops that are trying to raise money for two wonderful stampers. The first happened this past weekend, but you can still go here to read all about Operation Julie's Smile and donate. The second is going on today through Wednesday (I'll have a post for it on Wednesday). You can go here to read about Swimming for Katie and donate.
And then give an extra hug to someone today.
