Good morning! October is one happening month, but in today's post I want to focus on just one of those happenings. It's breast cancer awareness month, and Splitcoast Stampers, in conjunction with the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, is embarking on its second annual Hope You Can Cling To card drive. I just happened to have a JustRite Stampers Be Strong set, with 20% of its sales being contributed to ovarian cancer research--yes, I know, a bit different, but BOTH helpful to excellent causes!
I listed the relevant Splitcoast information below so that YOU can go participate if you'd like. I worked on my friend Lori Craig's challenge that included pink and bling. SCS will be posting a different Hope You Can Cling To challenge every day this month, so please check out that master list and make cards to send to the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.
All card details are listed below. Thanks for stopping by today!
