W2SB #22 Fight Like A Girl!!!

Happy October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Penny Ward here today.  I am super excited to be hosting this month's challenge as it deals with Breast Cancer which most of you know I endured a short time ago.
I recently passed my one year anniversary as a Survivor and there is no better feeling!!!

Breast Cancer can happen to anyone...there does not need to be a history of it in your family.
1 in 8 women (and a few unfortunate men) will develop Breast Cancer.

So we at Words 2 Scrap By want to get the word out there in a fun way, by having a Breast Cancer Awareness theme this month.

Below are the creations made by the Fantabulous I-Team to get your Pink mojo rolling:

Starting our inspiration today is Guest Designer Carol. Her beautiful butterfly is so unique with the Pink ribbon as the body. Elegant sentiment and great use of the layout. 


How adorable is the sentiment Bobbi chose to compliment her Pink bras?
And that ribbon!!!!
(I will be CASing that technique on a card real soon)


What a wonderful Pink ribbon background Annie has made on her card and so loving the sentiment.
YES, we can find a cure!

This beautiful background is a watercolor wash that just gives Sybrina's creation a little something, something!
Her unique use of the Pink ribbon in place of the letter "i" is brilliant!


Look at all that gorgeous embossed Pink!
Greta has created a beautiful feminine card and added a really important sentiment....for all of us!

 I love the soft Pink letterpress look with the vibrant butterfly. 
The sentiment in Black has a powerful message.

We hope you play along...prizes are involved...just sayin'.

How about a set of Radiant Neon Electric Purple (you would think it would be Pink) ink pad, irRESISTible Neon Purple Spray and irRESISTible Pico Purple embellisher?
My very sweet friends at Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko have provided the prize this month.

And before I let you get to crafting....

Make a card, play along for your chance to win. Then if you don't personally know someone with Breast Cancer, take your card to your local Oncology center and ask that the card go to their newest Breast Cancer patient.
She/he will love it and you will feel good about making someones day!


  1. Penny, Congratulations on the celebration of your one-year anniversary! Thank you for hosting this month's W2SB challenge.

  2. Love all the Design Team creations! Congratulations on your 1 Year Cancer Free!! What an Awesome Challenge for October!!

  3. The way you dealt with your diagnosis was inspirational!!! No whining or complaining...just getting on with the treatment. Love all these cards.

  4. Congrats to you on your one year anniversary!! I have an aunt who has been 10 years cancer free and we all walk in her honor each year. I have just the stamp set to make my card, and what a wonderful idea to drop it off at a local oncology department to help inspire and support someone else going through the fight.

  5. Congrats on your anniversary! Love to hear positive stories! Thanks for the awesome inspiration and fantastic challenge!
