Hey All!!!
Happy Friday!!!

It's the start of another challenge over at Cut It Up!
And this challenge should be near and dear to all of us!
I am sure we all know someone that has been affected by Cancer,
it's not a pretty disease - my husband has now
been in remission for over a year,
but it still haunts us every month as we go in for his clinic visits
and what his labs might say.

During his treatments, I went ahead and got my first mammogram.
And no matter what the horror stories of getting one may be,
mine was absolutely fine!
There is NOTHING to worry about for the actual exam!
So if you haven't gotten one, I strongly urge you to make an
appointment and get it done!
It will be well worth it!

So for our challenge over at Cut It Up, we want to see some
Breast CancerAwareness projects in 3D!
No "flat" cards on this one ladies :)

I wanted to make a gift box for someone who
is fighting the hard fight!

I pulled out my Pink Journey cartridge and cut the
butterfly box out of some paper from American Crafts.
I also cut the cancer ribbon tag from this same cart.
My stamp is from a Paper Smooches
stamp set called "Flap Happy"
and I stamped it with Studio G Pink Ink.

I wrapped it in some ivory tulle and pink & white twine from
American Crafts.

I am anxious to see what projects you come up with
in 3D!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!


  1. Like the Breast Cancer in 3D creation. Like the Butterfly & paper.
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  2. Very pretty box. I love the papers and the tag, and of course the bow!!
