Perhaps there is someone that you know is dealing with a form of cancer. We just found out a dear friend of my Mom and our family has just been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. I used to baby sit for her when I was younger. She is such a lovely person.

Played with some designer fabrics today.
Made some appliquéd type of flowers that can
be used in a variety of ways.
I will use mine for mini albums and altered art pieces.
Using the Lollipop flower method of cutting several various
sized circles attaching them together.
Then heating them. Usually the edges start to turn up.
But with this polyester fabric it took on a more random look.
Which suited me just fine.
They ended up looking more like
little Cabbage Roses to me.
Then I couldn't leave well enough alone.
They were calling out for
feathers, tiny metal flowers, velvet leaves,
rhinestones, sequin and beaded trim. So hear you are.

We did one for each other using either
Nature, Movie Star, or Steam-punk
as the theme.
She chose a combo
She used a high quality photo paper.
So her images came out crisp and clean.
She had some fun with the back using dies cuts,
molding paste and fabric to give it texture.
Highlighting it with metallic paints.
This one incorporated the
Breast Cancer Awareness
theme we chose to do.
She chose a beautiful image
Complete with pearl accents and the
Gold ribbon that says hope.
On the back Caroline made a pocket
accented with pearls. The sentiment says
So make every day count."
This lovely rose is attached to
this heart shaped tag she stamped on.
So nicely done.
I love the hearts she sent me.
As well as some extra Goodies.
Thank You so Much Caroline.
So I made an extra set of the
Altered Hearts I swapped with Caroline
I had the hardest time photographing this one.
They turned out almost the same except I used a different
7 Gypsies charm on the bottom of each of the hearts.
This was done in pink in honor of
Breast Cancer Awareness.
Thanks for Looking!
