Here is day 2 of being “mifted” creations….I really should take a break soon. I feel as if I’m running out of ideas and the brain needs to rest some:) All creations for today are made with Think Pink stamp set from My Favorite Things. Many know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The nice perk to this set, when you purchase it, is that a percentage goes to Breast Cancer Research. And while playing with this set, I discovered it is very versatile and can be used for all types of Awareness basically (just change the color of the ribbon to coordinate with what awareness you would like).
Being a nurse, I loved the fact that there was a itty-bitty stethoscope in this set..so I made this card first:
I went with a red, black, and white color palette for this card so the lab coats/white tops would stand out. The stethoscopes are detailed the two most common ways that med professionals sport them — I stamped them in silver and added a silver brad to the “bell” part (I think they are stinkin’ cute).

This card was made with Beate’s WSC#24 layout:
I wanted this card to be bright and cheerful with pink incorporated. With the sentiment, I felt as if I would give it to someone battling this aweful disease…so it had to have an uplifting appearance. I love how the skirt turned out:)

This third one was made with the intent of keepin’ it simple and letting the images do all the talkin’:
I love how simple this card is with the white base. It really makes the images stand out. I wanted to use different skin tones as well to educate that Breast Cancer can affect every one of us and we need to all “believe” together that we can find a cure & educate each other!

Lastly, just completed this one so I thought I’d add it. The thought of this one came to me while trying/pretending to watch the football game (being the supportive wife sitting next to my husband … while my mind is saying “stamp, stamp, stamp”)
After downloading all the other samples, I realized that I needed to make an “all pink” card to show. But I also had to incorporate a brown because they just compliment each other so well.
