Link Up for Pink!!!

This is my second post for today!! If you're looking for my PCJ post then head to the post BELOW!!
I saw this Link up for Pink linking Party awhile ago but have only just had a chance to get involved!!!
Thank you to Celeste, Gaby and Yolie for organising all this and giving us an opportunity to both participate and share our stories!!!

This is a cause that is very close to my heart as my Nan was diagnosed with Breast Cancer nearly two years ago. It was quite a shock to hear that nan had breast cancer, as it always is for everyone!!! She has showed the most amazing strength and determination and never allowed it to stop her living her life!! She really is an old battler and I mean that in the nicest possible way!!! She has amazed the doctors with her response to treatments and she amazes me with the way that she has never changed the way she lives!! She even had a fall a few months ago and cut her arm and leg quite bad but she continues on with life as usual!! I love my Nan so much and try to see her as often as I can but wish I could visit her more!! I love my Nan with all my heart!!
So for my card for LUFP I chose a Tickled Pink Stamps Image and a sentiment that I thought reflected Nan's positive outlook!!

I started using the Mojo Monday Sketch but then ended up changing it slightly!! I coloured Pink Ribbon Lilith in with tria markers and used a glitter pen on her ribbon on the t-shirt and a bit of pink in her hair!! I distressed around the edge of the image and the sentiment then added all the embellishments!!! I am really happy with the end results!!!

As well as this be entered for the LUFP linking party I am entering this into the following challenges:
* Guylou's Inimitability Blog - Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge
* Jellypark Friends - Add Pink and a Ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness
* My Sheri Craft - Think Pink
* Lexi's Creations - Pink for Boobies
* Tuesday Throwdown - Think Pink
* I Brake for Challenges - Girl Power

Remember to do your self breast examinations, it only takes a few minutes!!!
