Have you had your Mammogram this year?

Update:  This card is winner at 'My Time Made Easy' challenge 27!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Remember is do your monthly
self-checks, your annual visit with your MD and your mammograms as ordered by your MD>

On September 21, Fresh Brewed Designs had a blog hop to showcase some new stamps,
both rubber and digital to support the breast cancer awareness effort.

There are currently 3 women in my life that have conquered breast cancer.
First is Marsha who I work with in the ER.  The other two women are Sally and Mary.
They are all amazing women who fought their breast cancer with grace, humor and dignity.  I am
priviledged to know them all and call them friends.

There is one other 'forgotten' group of women out there that are on a daily crusade
against breast cancer.  This card is going to the women that staff the
Bay Area Hospital Mammography Center.  October is the month to salute those who
have and/or will combat breast cancer, and those who go in daily in an attempt to
find it in time to defeat it.

Both DP are digi papers from JustYolie
The main image is from Fresh Brewed Designs
The sentiment and bra images are from Our Craft Lounge
The die cuts are all from Spellbinders and Spellbinders Grands.
Ink used is Memento and coloring with Copics.
The brads, ribbon and vellum are from my stash.
