It's Pinktober at Jellypark Friends

It's Pinktober! at Jellypark Friends and unless you've been living in a cave for the last few years you should know that for everyone October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and pink is the color of Breast Cancer Month. With all the sports on TV don't you just love seeing those burly sportscasters wearing pink shirts and/or ties.  I saw one baseball player with a pink baseball mitt, which is probably the coolest thing I ever saw.   I don't think there's anything smarter, hipper, maybe even sexier than a man in pink, and I am not joking, being sarcastic or talking tongue in cheek.  

My card is using the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Flower Ribbon Digital Stamp.  All of the proceeds from this stamp go to charity so not only can you make a beautiful card that will raise awareness, but you will be making a monetary contribution as well.  Nice how that works.  The middle layer of my card was made by typing "fight like a girl" several times and then copying it several times, and changing the color to pink before printing it onto Georgia Pacific card stock.  I love the way it turned out, I think it works perfectly in this card.

I hope you'll join us at Jellypark Friends for "Pinktober" and that you'll stop over at the Jellypark Friends Store and make a purchase of the Flower Ribbon, you'll be glad you did.
