Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop

Welcome to our 1st annual Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop. We are so glad that you have decided to join us for this very important cause. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. And since there is currently no cure, early detection is crucial. You can do this by having yearly mammograms, yearly clinical breast exams, and regular self-breast exams.
We have some FABULOUS sponsors for this hop!!!!! You MUST leave a comment on each blog in the hop to be eligible for any and all prizes.
Also, for all prizes you wish to be considered for, you MUST visit their FB pages and/or blogs, LIKE & FOLLOW, and leave a comment on FB. So, if you want to be eligible for ALL the prizes, (I know I would!) You have a bit of work to do, but I promise, it will be worth it!!!

I had an amazing LO planned for this hop, but as you ll know, I am a procrastinator. Well, my little guy has been having what I call "High Autism Days" for the last 2 weeks.  He's not sleeping, he's destructive, yadda, yadda, yadda....... SO, needless to say, my LO did not get done! :(
I am still going to make it, and probably  few more too, have to use this paper stack somehow! :)
So, here is my last minute card. And please, do not take my last minuteness as me not taking this cause or hop seriously, because I very much do!!! But my life can get crazy and stay crazy at the drop of a hat! Y'all know how that goes! :)

For this card, I used part of the "Think Pink Mice" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs, original artwork by Kristi W. Designs.

If you would like to make a donation to the cause, you can go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure or the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
Now it's time for you to go to Katie's blog.
Thanks for hopping with us!
