CAS-ual Friday~ One for the Girls

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this week CAS-ual Friday  challenge this week is to create a CAS card to celebrate the women in your life.  I've actually decided to do a card for Breast Cancer awareness

Very CAS.  The pink doily is a die cut from Die-namics.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts  Limited Edition cling from last year, inked up with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  I then folded some pink ribbon and added a little pink button to hold it together.

I lost a very dear friend 18 months ago to this insidious disease.  I would encourage you all to have regular mammograms to detect breast cancer.  Another friend of mine was very luck to have had a lump picked up on her mammogram and after having a mastectomy is now a cancer survivor for over 5 years.

Hope your World Card Making Day is full of fun and creativity.  This is my second card of the day!   But as we have been invited to join our son and his girlfriend out to dinner tonight, not sure if there will be time to make any more.  Oh well, my tomorrow will be still be Saturday somewhere in the world so I'll just celebrate WCMD again!
