I am just going to start out with this: Cancer sucks. Especially breast cancer.
Breast cancer hangs over our heads in my family. My grandma had it. Ken’s grandma died from it. My mom and I have had scares. One of my best friends had it. It just sucks.
When I learned that the mom of one of my good friends, Julie, was having surgery to kick breast cancer’s butt, I was crushed. I wished I lived closer so I could help out. But instead, I did what I know best – I started making cards.
So today I have the great honor of filling in Julie’s very big/talented/fabulous shoes for the Ellen Hutson “Hello, Monday” feature. This is a video feature that Julie does on Ellen’s store blog every Monday… and it is incredible. (So incredible that I have an alarm on my calendar to remind me to go there every Monday. You should, too. To see previous Hello, Monday features, just head to the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom blog and search on “Hello, Monday.”)
To see my video featuring three pink encouragement cards, head HERE. Here are some peeks…
And to those of you out there who have breast cancer in your lives in any way – you are in my prayers. My grandma had a mastectomy at a young age and lived to 101. There is hope.
Big hugs all around. Oh – and please don’t forget the power of one simple card. It is an amazing hobby we have, huh?
(And a big thank you to Ellen Hutson – who lost her sweet mom recently – for supporting many artists in this industry. You are loved.)
