Ribbon of Awareness

Hello!

The best way to start the work week is with an October release at My Time Made Easy!  Check out all the NEW products.  It will get you in the Holiday spirit!  😀

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  MTME has a NEW template, stamp, and cut file created just for this!  Did you know that many groups have adopted ribbons as symbols of support or awareness, and their meaning depends on their color or colors?  I had NO idea!  HERE is a list of many awareness ribbons.

My grandma (my mom’s mom) passed away a few weeks ago.  She suffered horribly from Rheumatoid Arthritis.  In honor of her, I chose to make a dark blue ribbon to give to my mom.

Most the elements in this project reflect my grandma.  She always wore jeans and looked beautiful in red.   She also wore red lipstick every day.  Not just any red, it had to be a true red.  My sisters and I were always on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick for her :-)

 

Grandma was a fabulous gardener.  She grew everything from veggies to flowers.  It’s hard to see in this picture, but I embossed the red layer with a Plants embossing folder.

This sentiment is perfect for my mom.  It says “Praying for Faith to uphold you & that loving Memories heal your heart.”  You can find it in our NEW set, Be Supportive. I cut it out using a NEW cut file, Homemade Holiday Labels.

I can’t wait to give this to my mom.  I feel like I created a paper {{hug}} for her. <3

This template, I Support You, is really awesome.  It is easy to assemble too.  It makes whipping up a quick gift for someone a snap!

Our entire Design Team has created awareness ribbons that represent things close to their heart.  Be sure to stop by them all!

Have a wonderful day! 😀
