What does this mean?

I saw the sketch challenge at Skipping Stones Design this week and immediately knew what I wanted to do.

I have friends who have NOT had a mammogram in, well,
let's just say a very long time.

Hopefully this card will reach one of them,
and the others (and you know who you are),
will see this post and consider what's at risk here.

I absolutely love this stamp set, Bras Volume 1.
It was my very first Skipping Stone,
and still remains my favorite!
Because I wanted to get to the heart of the problem,
I used a sentiment from another stamp set.
It just brought the message home so well.

I love the way the little stamped hangers popped off the embossed cardstock after I heat embossed them in black. And those bras are so much fun to stamp and color!  I can pretend I'm shopping at Victoria's Secret! I can also pretend I would buy a $60 bra! LOL!

So, no matter who you are reading this,
you are someone's daughter,
maybe someone's mother,
or sister...
Get a mammogram!
You DO matter!
And, go check out the challenge at Skipping Stones Design!
They have the coolest sketches and products!

Stamps: Skipping Stones Designs, "Bras Volume 1"; Verve, "Words of Wisdom"
