Be Brave - Visible Image Stamps

Hello and welcome to you today, hope you have all been having some crafty fun.

Today is a bit of a sad post from me as my DT term has come to an end for Visible Image as you all know most terms are 3 to 6 months so i've been so very lucky and it was a total honour to work with such a lovely team.
So thank you
Now onto today post this is so very close to me and seeing the 
Visible Image Blog Challenge is sentimental September so I decided I would just use sentiment stamps.

Many of you don't know I was told at the age of 25 I had breast cancer and battled several years in and out of hospital and was told I wouldn't make 30..... But guess what i'm now 40. I lost my mum to the awful disease when I was 21 she was only just 42 so Cancer research is on my top priority when it comes to fund raising also I know most people look after or know someone who is suffering or been touched by it.


The sentiments have come from the
Brillaint collection of stamps at exceptional valve for money and I can promise you they are the best quality stamps your crafty pennies will buy.

Other items used:
Black & White card - Versamark ink pad - Ebony Black WOW embossing powder - Pink ribbon & Gem from my stash.

Im sure you will agree what a perfect fund raising card this makes and October is Breast Cancer awareness month so you still have a little time to help the Charity.

Remember life is to short so enjoy every minute
