During the month of September Link Up for Pink announced their 2nd Annual Link Up for Pink Party starting on October 1st. I knew immediately that I would join the Party.
I haven't told many about this, but last year during my annual mammogram they found something on my x-ray so I had to go back for an ultrasound. I was really terrified but my mind told me I was okay, I didn't believe it was cancer. I'm happy to say that I was correct ... it was a cyst. This is what I thought when I was originally told I needed to go back in, but I was still terrified. To say this was a relief is putting it mildly. So we ... my hubby, doctor & I ... will continue the self-exams and annual mammograms to make sure that nothing changes.
This was not my first experience dealing with cysts. I had about a dozen cysts removed from my right wrist when I was 18-yrs old ... one of them was the size of a quarter, and shaped like a football. I was very lucky not to loose the use of my dominant hand.
After I created this card I found out that my first 2-months of my 2nd term as a Sassy Studio Designs Designer would be creating for the Dare to be Sassy Thursdays Challenge. So this is my first week back creating for the DTBST Challenge, and Challenge #145 is "Breast Cancer Awareness".
Here is a closer look at Sassy Studio Designs Pink Ribbon stamp ...

The rest of the SSD Design Team has created some amazing projects to inspire and encourage you to remember the importance of getting your annual mammogram so make sure you head on over to the SSD Blog to see their projects, and you can also link up your Link Up For Pink Party project while you're there.
You will also find lots of inspiration over on the Link Up For Pink Blog.
The ladies over at the Link Up For Pink Blog are amazing to remind us all on a regular basis about the importance of having our Annual Mammograms. Believe me when I say I will never forget!
I'm submitting this card for the Copic Oz Think Pink Challenge.
