Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Breast Cancer Month and My Mom



( my photos are still not coming out great…UGH!!! )

Today over at CAS on Sunday we have a great Sketch for you to try!


In Honor of October being Breast Cancer month….I decided it was

time to make a card in honor of my mother.  Who in fact

had beaten breast cancer earlier in her life, but unfortunately passed away from a ovarian cancer

later in life.  She died at the age of 62, far to young!


Isn’t she beautiful?  This photo was taken right before she was married.

I miss her as much today as I did 20 years ago.

I am going to send this card to a friend who is battling this horrific disease right now!

I hope it helps in some small way!

We have a sponsor and a great prize that is up for grabs over at

CAS on Sunday!

I hope you come on over and join us…we would love to have you!

Card details:

Here is a photo of what I did to make the word hope.


I took various strips of pink and glued them down on a pink piece of paper

and then cut it out using my Cuttlebug.

Love this look!

The die cuts used for this card are from Paper Smooches.

The banner die at the bottom is from Verve.

I used Sizzix Framelits from SU for my shape and raised

the panel up with pop dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by…..I love when you do it really makes my day!
