ColourQ #157

Happy Tuesday and welcome to this weeks ColourQ. As most of you know October is breast cancer awareness month. Arielle has given us an amazing inspiration photo with lots of pink. I decided to go on the softer side with my card this week.

I know first hand what cancer can do. Though I am not a breast cancer survivor, I am an ovarian cancer survivor and my brother is a testicular cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with my cancer when I was 17. I had surgery and 6 months of  chemo. Through the grace of God, and the love and support of my family and friends, I have been cancer free for 24 years. My brother has been cancer free for 9 years now.

I dedicate this card to all who have been affected by this awful disease, regardless of what kind of cancer. Keep your chin up and stay strong.

This week's colors.
I hope you are able to join us this week. Be sure to stop by ColourQ and see what the rest of design team has created with these great colors.
