Gus and Stella...We take breast examinations very seriously....

Warning.....adult humor!

A2 size, copics, PS8, stitching, punches, ribbon, embellishments, glossy accents


(inside)...especially every Saturday night!
      I brought Gus into the picture because men get breast cancer too. It's only 1% but that is approximately 390 men who succumb  to this cancer. I fell into the 1% of post- back surgery problems.  I didn't like being in that 1% and asked "why me".  I don't think you would want your father, brother, husband or friend being in that 1% and having to ask, "why him".  LINK UP FOR PINK continues with their 2 week  challenge and quest to get the "word out" about Breast Awareness Month.  I continue to post a card every other day with that theme.  Yes, I use humorous cards, but I take the matter seriously and if I can get the attention of just one person to "stop and think", then I have accomplished what I set out to do.

  1. What a wonderful card and what a great thing you are doing. I totally forget about it being Brest Cancer Awareness Month. Thanks for the reminder Cely.
