For my card, I used Stand and Salute to cut the ribbon at 3". I then ran the ribbon through my cuttlebug with the Love Language embossing folder to get the little embossed hearts. The word HOPE was cut out using Home Decor at 2". Please make sure to schedule your mammogram and do monthly self exams at home. I have hope that one day there will be a cure. :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! I really appreciate it!

Thanks so much for joining us!
If you got here from My Pink Life then you are on the right track. :)
The theme for this hop is Halloween. I hope you enjoy all the great Halloween projects along the way!
I love that little waving skeleton!
I used my cricut expression to cut out the bag from Plantin Schoolbook at 7 1/4"
The white mat is 3 5/8" by 4 5/8" and the orange mat is 3 3/8" by 4 3/8".
I rounded the corners and then
I ran the orange mat through my cuttlebug with the spots and dots embossing folder.
For the skeleton, cat and bat, I used the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge.
I cut out the skeleton at 4" and used the black cricut marker to outline him.
The cat and the bat were both cut out at 2 1/2". I used my white signo gel pen to highlight some of the cut details on both.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up (Seasonal Sentiments) stamped in Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink.
I matted the sentiment onto some black card stock and popped it up with some foam dots.
Then I drew some white stitch lines with my white signo gel pen and assembled the bag.
I finished it off with a bow. :)
Pretty simple to make and I am so happy with the end result.
Halloween wouldn't be complete without a little candy, would it?
I am going to give one lucky winner the following 2 cuttlebug embossing folders :
