Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Larelyn from Handmade From My Heart back with my second project as October's Guest Designer.
October is Cancer Awareness month. Although most of the attention is on a cure for breast cancer, we must remember that there are so many other types that need attention and funding in order to find a cure. The fight to cure Ovarian Cancer is very close to my heart. I lost my sister-in-law who was also my best friend to ovarian cancer. She fought such a valiant battle - I was with her for every appointment and treatment her final year. I wouldn't trade those final months for anything as we laughed on her good days and cried for what was to come. So, in order to honor her, I chose to use the teal ribbon for my project. My nephew, her youngest son is a captain in the fire department. They painted one of their trucks pink to send the awareness message but they added a huge banner that reads "ALL PEOPLE, ALL CANCERS" and that is my message as well.
Here's my project:
I used SVG Cutting Files' Awareness Ribbon Candy Tube Holder. I also used Jaded Blossom's Candy Tubes, Flag Dies, and Fight for a Cure stamps set. I embellished with a little VersaMagic Chalk Ink, some twine, and Queen & Co. bubbles.
