Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for this week is to use *Pink* to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the celebrate the release of "Praying for a Cure".
See all the details Saturday, October 29, 2011 on ODBD's Design Blog and please use the keyword ODBDSLC82 so we can enjoy your creations too!
Once again, I chose one of the new releases for October, Christmas Door, because I love the hope that comes from this Scripture. The verse is stamped on designer paper, and framed using Spellbnders Fleur Di Lis. The blooms are hand made, and I have instructions HERE. Also tucked in a few swirls and leaves from my most favorite new toy- Cheery Lynn's Fanciful Flourish, (and really, I think they belong on every card! Lol!) The stitching is one of my favorite additions to a card, and I learned this technique from Pat, (Kokirose), whose "signature" sewing makes her cards a knock out. (Thanks sweet friend!)
Please join the ODBD team in celebrating the Cause for a Cure! I have friends from work that have been on this walk, (and one that is still in treatment) and I am so thankful God has provided ways to treat this once devastating disease and are now living testimony to the miracles of the Father, and His guidance in the medical field. Thanks for looking!

Oh, Pat, You can tell this card is straight from your heart, especially knowing others who have been down this road. Your Scripture touches me deeply - We all have to try everyday to remember these words, and live out our lives in joy - He has it all in His hands!
Your card reflects joy in these sweet blooms roaming in the swirls, and the stitching is spectacular. Those are perfect Nesties to frame these words of wisdom. Bless your heart for sharing so much with us here!! LYMI! hugs!

Awesome, inspiring, terrific, incrediably delicious, sweet, memorable, gorgeous, and downright beautiful. This is a think pink card that I can sink my teeth into (not literally of course - I am hungry but not that hungry). You know my Mother is a Breast Cancer survivor and a really inspirational one. She had a mamogram and it didn't show up, but she religiously did her monthly self-exams and found it herself. There are some kinds of tumors that don't show up well on mamograms and vice-versa. So I totally encourage women to do the self-exams too. I really love your card sweet Pat. It hurts my heart to know you suffer when you create your beautiful inspirations. I makes me think of Paul. He sufferred so much pain, but did it with a cheerful heart so he could accomplish God's plan for him. I know you have that same sweet outlook. LYMI!
