Think Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness" Blog Candy

All newer posts below

Here are your beautiful cards

I want to do something special for my blogoversary and 30,000 hits BLOG CANDY
The October "Think Pink" campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness is very close to my heart and I am sure it is the same for many of you too.
So when the new "Tilda Think Pink" stamps were released on Saturday I was straight on the site to order 2 Tilda's and a couple of sentiments.
I have decided as you girls have been so kind and supportive over the past year I am going give one of each... a BCA Tilda and sentiment along with lots of pink goodies to make your cards with.
No picture at the moment but as soon as the stamps arrive I will post one. I am going to keep this open for the whole month of October and I will get my Mum to choose a winner on Friday 31st October at 20.00 hrs.
Here is what I would like you to do.. if you have time can you make a pink card and send it to someone who could do with a little tender loving care.
It would be lovely if it was someone who's life has been touched by this terrible disease but it can be anyone who could do with a kind word and a beautiful card to cheer them up.. I am sure we all know someone.
Post a picture of your card on your blog and link it back to me here so I can come and have a look, if you don't have a blog you can still play just email me your entry.
So come on girls get out your pink stash and MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY

My card is here

Here is what you can win PM pink cards and vellums,pink ribbons and embellishments,pink x cut distressing tool,color box cats eye inks, think pink Belgium chocolate lolly, pin, and mobile phone charm and of course pink Tilda when she arrives!!

At last a picture of the Pink Tilda and sentiment

Please let everyone know

Thanks for joining in with the challeng Sue :o)

What a fabulous idea, Sue! Having been through this myself, I know that it is so touching when someone sends a little message to lift your spirits. You are a special person to remind us that there is always someone who needs a bit of cheering up. Thanks for doing something meaningful for BCA in October!!!


Shary said...

Great idea Sue. I'll get my thinking cap on.

Cathy said...

What a fabulous idea - just a little question (me not being great on pink even though I have 2 pink obsessed little girls) can it be pink and another colour?

You are just the sweetest! I made sure to make mine up first thing, this is one Challenge I didn't want to miss, one for a good cause! And I have a close friend that really can use a pick me up right now.
Hope it is pink enough ;0)

Hi Sue, what a great idea. I've decided to make a card for my friend Sonia who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 37 and had to go through a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. Breast Cancer touches all people's lives regardless of age,sex,ethnicity so its a pleasure to take part in something that will brighten someones day

mariaadams said...

A wonderful idea, Sue. My lovely sister in law, Debbie, has just been diagnosed with breast cancer and I will be sending my pink card to her. I also have a cousin and two friens who have also battled with the illness, and they are doing well, thankfully. I will be making pink cards to send to them too. I'll post my first card on my blog later tonight.

What a kind and loving thing to get everyone involved. I will be sending a card or two, but cannot put on my blog, as I don't have one yet and I can't load on e-mail as I have moved and everything is in boxes. But, I wanted to contribute to your fabulous idea.

bumblebee creations said...

What an awesome idea! I have made a card that I will send out tomorrow-I have heard through the grapevine of a young lady (whom I do not know-but all the same)who is having a real tough time (I believe it is cancer) and has young children, and so I am sure she could use a pick me up-I want to make sure first from my friend that this is ok, and then it will be on it's way. You can see my card here (i used several items from a blog candy win) ,

Foxcraft said...

I have just added my pink card to my blog - it will be heading for the post box straight after lunch to cheer up a dear friend who has recently been treated for Breast Cancer.

hayward69 said...

What a lovely idea. I have done my card for my best friend who had breast cancer 4 years ago but luckily has come through it and now has the all clear. She has done lots of fund raising for this cause and also in 2006 she walked the Westhighland Way in Scotland. As it was her birthday on the 25th October I combined her pink card with her birthday card. She absolutely loved it and it sure cheered her up.

Karin said...

Hi Suzanne,

Í'm sorry for my late entry, but that's me: a last minute cardmaker.
Fabulous candy and a great idea to let everyone make a pink card.
As we speak my card is of to a very special lady who's facing a difficult time (I will email you her story later.)
Thanks for the great candy,

xoxo Karin
