My first post for the Cuttlebug Spot!

I am so exited to be on the Cuttlebug Spot DT!

This week we are celebrating Woman's Power.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
I actually just found out that an old co-worker of mine just passed away from Breast Cancer. She fought it and won once, and then it came back, just after her and I left that employer. This is the first person that I knew that has passed from breast cancer.

We all need to work hard together to find a cure for not only breast cancer but all cancer.

Everyone needs to hug their mom, sisters and grandmothers today.

So for my card, I had this wonderful "50's mom" rubberstamp from Prickley Pear.

It's hard to tell in the photo but her skirt is paper pieced.

Cuttlebug Embossing folder—Tim Holtz Collage
Stamps—PTI Open Type, Prickley Pear 50's woman.
Paper—PTI solids, SU Pattern Orange, Memory Box Stripes
Ink—Distress Ink, Copics, Momento black
Other— Sewing, PTI Ribbon, Pearls Mark Richards, Making Memories Flowers, Fiskars Treading Water Edge Punch, Walnut Dyed Tag and ScorTape

Don't forget to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot Blog and play along with the DT.
