Ha! What a title that is for this post today! :) They both have meaning. I am participating for the first time with a NEW Challenge Blog - Just Us Girls (aka JUGS)and also participating in today's Mojo Monday Challenge...and I am actually doing it on MONDAY!!! Can I get a "WOO HOO?"

Anyway, I am a girl who loves her challenges so this Just Us Girls Challenge Blog sounds like it's going to be lots of fun and very inspiring!

I figured since it is the month of October and it's Breast Cancer Awareness month that I'd go with a "PINK" theme and make a card to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness.

The challenge from the JUGS blog was to use paper piecing on your card. I did quite a bit of that to create some fun pink outfits for these 2 ladies. Both of their shirts and skirts are paper pieced. You can see the Mojo Monday Sketch 108 HERE.

I thought it only fitting to add a Pink Ribbon to show support for the cause.

Stamps: Think Pink (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Sweet Blush, Rasberry Fizz, White, Bitty Dot Basics (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Rasberry Fizz (PTI)
Other: Sweet Blush Twill (PTI), White Button (PTI), Copics

Colleen this is mojolicious! It's obvious to me that you took it to heart to work on the breast cancer awareness theme idea - right down to the ribbon! I love the ourfits - and the image is awesome. I made one of my good friends go with me to get her first ever mammo - so this coulda' been us - LOL she is in her 40s and NEVER had one -ever!

Thank you SO MUCH for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. I hope you really had fun and will come back again!

Oh Colleen! Love your sweet, pink card! That image is just perfect in so many ways for this challenge (from the paper piecing to friends supporting each other). Also just adore the ribbon you added with the button! So cute!

Terrific card. I like the paper pieced skirts and how you used the "support" style ribbon for your detail.
