Today (Friday, October 7th) and our last day (Sunday, October 9th), we will be showing some wonderful work from some very talented people. Since I am the only gentleman, I felt honored when I was asked to be a part of this wonderful event and chosen to go first. I am dedicating this to my mom, Betty Lois Grant, who lost her fight with breast cancer back in 96'. She was, and always be remembered as a wonderful and fantastic mom, sister, aunt, wife, daughter, grandmother, and best friend to all that knew and loved her the most. Thanks so much for your time and I pray that this Blog Hop will be a blessing to you as I know it will be for me!

This Card I think is a great way to start this off with, To Say Fight for Life and what it has to offer..

The Card Base is From Recollections (one of my favorite go to cards) the edges inked with Inkadinkado Pink in stamp, the Pink layer is also from Recollection the Script paper is from:Me &..  My Big Idea's Breast Cancer Pack 2011 and the Image was a freebie: melon headz digi  and the ribbon is from Micheal's..

My second Card  is From a Digi Image set I rec'd From: The Cutting Cafe.com..called Think Pink, The Base is Recollection, the Pink ribbon pattern paper is from: Me & My Big Ideas..
