Linking Up for Pink

I'll be the first to admit that I've become a bit jaded when it comes to Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, as I'm not sure how many mammograms I have to have until everything I purchase stops coming in Pink packaging, but it's worth it if one person gets the treatment they need. Breast Cancer has of course touched my life: my grandmother had a mastectomy, a coworker has treatments every morning before coming to work, and many other people close to me have battled it and other such illnesses. I can't even begin to imagine their courage.

So, in that spirit, I made a Pink card for the Link Up for Pink blog party hosted by Celeste, Gaby, and Yolie. For layout & image ideas, I looked to this week's Deconstructed Sketch, sponsored by Tiddly Inks. The sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC. Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!
I'm going to take the suggestion at Link Up for Pink and send my card to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition

Friends are always giving me a hard time for not putting a label on my cards, so I made one for this card. Not only does it have links to this blog and Link Up for Pink, it has a QR-Code that will take you to this post. Hi there!

You can generate your own QR-Code here. Thanks for checking out my card, and many healthful wishes!


  1. Lovely, happy card....I would have been cheered and delighted to receive this when I was battling breast cancer, so please don't start to feel jaded by PINK....ha!
    Not been around much to comment, but you'll know why if you've visited me recently, so it's a true pleasure to pop in and see what you've been up to....go girl!

  2. I love your card for the Link Up For Pink party!! It's so beautiful! Love the QR code on the back to such a good idea!
    Can I also suggest you enter you card for the Think Pink Challenge over at Dude Time Doodles! It would fit the bill perfectly over there too!
    Good Luck
