Think Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to the Think Pink Blog Hop!! 


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so the Die-Versions Design Team wanted to bring Breast Cancer Awareness to our crafty friends. We want to get the message out to all women about the importance of early detection with regular self-breast exams and mammograms.

We want all of you to Hop with us!!  Link up as many new projects (no back-linking) that fit the theme of Breast Cancer Awareness to the Die-Versions Blog for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate generously provided by Die Versions.  Die-Versions manufactures low profile dies made right here in the United States. You can see all of the dies Die-Versions has to offer and do some shopping at the Die-Versions store.





Many of the designers today will be using images generously provided by Doodle Pantry. Doodle Pantry provides a diverse selection of images. There is something for everyone, so be sure to stop by to see all they have to offer.


We have also joined with Fighting Pretty to donate cards to be delivered to breast cancer patients. If you would like to donate your cards we would love to pass them along to brighten the days of needed recipients. Please email Lori at mulchlady(at)aol(dot)com for the address to send your cards.
On my first card, I used a little bird that comes in a digital image set called I will survive from Doodle Pantry.  The images come color and uncolored.  

I used the colored version... it doesn't get much easier than that. I fussy cut the bird. Added glossy accents to the ribbon and foam squares for dimension.

From Die-Versions, I used the gorgeous Whispers-Lucky Scallop die, which I die cut from pink card stock.  












On my second card, I used two dies from Die-Versions.  The Whispers Diva Crown and the Sweet Frame Smile.  



I also used a Julie Netting die and stamp set for the girl in the frame.  I kept her hairless to stress how fabulous we are at our core.  














I hope you have enjoyed your time here and good luck in the contest.  

Your next stop on the Think Pink Blog Hop is Irit. So keep hopping, celebrate courage and strength, and most importantly spread some Pink Hope.

Here's the entire line-up in case you get lost along the way:

    1. Thanks Lori. I've used the crown die more as a side flourish than as a die... LOL It's turned out to be very versatile.
