Quoting my good friend, Kendra, who is a survivor:
Now I need to urge all of you ladies to do the following:
- Keep up with your yearly doctor's appointment;
- get a yearly mammogram (remember I wasn't even 40 when I was diagnosed!);
- do your monthly self-exams (that's how I found mine) ~ look for changes not just lumps and bumps; and
- if you notice ANYTHING, go get it checked out (don't just think it's going to go away ~ the sooner something is caught, the better!).
The deets: Create card from Vanilla card stock, edge with Brilliance Pearlescent Ink and Versamagic Pixie Dust inks.
Edge patterned paper with Brilliance Pearlescent Beige ink and adhere to card base.
