Hello friends in Unity! Welcome to my Friday, September 20, 2013 entry for Friends with Flair sponsored by the awesome Unity Stamp Co. I created this tag in light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month coming up in October. I had a couple of aunts who I was quite fond of who lost their fight to breast cancer some years ago. They were fighters. I remember their strength and courage. I know I am not alone when it comes to seeing someone battle this disease. I'm sure that at some point in time they felt each emotion in this sentiment. In fact, I'm quite sure that we as women have experienced all of these feelings and emotions at one point or another.
I chose not to go with the traditional pink. The sentiment is from an Ipitty set called courage is my strength. The butterfly and star stamp is from the Unity Stamp Co. October 2011 KOM called faith, hope, love...live by it. The sentiment was stamped in coastal cabana (Stampin' Up) and embossed with a clear embossing powder (Stampin' Up); the butterfly and star stamp was stamped in squeezed lemonade (Tim Holtz) and embossed. The entire tag was then inked with worn lipstick (Tim Holtz) and the entire tag was embossed. The wood spool button and twine is Pink Paislee. The butterfly is Heidi Swapp; it was originally white (I altered it with squeezed lemonade and coastal cabana). The wood heart is Studio Calico.
Thanks for stopping by!
