Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop: Let's hear it for the girls

"Who's ready to find out the latest theme for the Bombshell Stamps Hump day Hop? Last month, it was all about the boys...well this month, in anticipation of October, the theme is "Let's Hear it for the Girls!" This theme is a little more specific then last month's though. I want you to create a card or project that could be sent to someone during October, which is (here in the States), Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So let's all Think Pink!

You can go with a pink card, Girl Power, use the infamous pink ribbon symbol, etc. But we want to worship those ladies that are fighting (or have fought) for their lives."


Okay, So!! I want to be the rebel of the group. YES! this hop was in anticipation of October's Breast Cancer Awareness month. But did YOU!!! know? That September features a day for OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS? Just one day?! And Breast Cancer gets ONE WHOLE MONTH!!! So the inner rebel in me says... I am going to make sure you hear it for the girls with OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS!!!

I used the flower icon from the Bombshell Angel set, and the Letters from Tattoo Font set to create this card for a very VERY special woman in my life. My Aunt Marie. She is on her second time battling Ovarian Cancer and shes kicking its tail!!! She is a true Bombshell, I am so thankful to have her in mine and Diem's lives. I mean she IS where Diem gets her middle name from!! :)

Here are some facts about Ovarian Cancer that EVERY woman needs to know. Please check it out before hopping to the next blog of, ::

In January 1, 2008 in the United States approximately 177,578 women were alive who had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer (including those who had been cured of the disease).

Ovarian cancer accounts for approximately three percent of cancers in women. While the ninth most common cancer among women, ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related death among women, and is the deadliest of gynecologic cancers. Mortality rates are slightly higher for Caucasian women than for African-American women.

A Woman’s Lifetime Risk:
 A woman’s lifetime risk of developing invasive ovarian cancer is 1 in 71.
A woman’s lifetime risk of dying from invasive ovarian cancer is 1 in 95.

Please click on the stats chart to read more information. Ovarian Cancer is a silent killer, and can be prevented!!!!

Now, not to be a Debby Downer, I just felt that Ovarian Cancer needed its time to shine as its awareness date IS September!!! BE A SUPPORTER WEAR TEAL! AND WEAR IT OFTEN! I DO! I wear a teal bracelet everyday in honor of Marie!!!

Now Onto the rest of the hop. From my blog you should be headed to  the Lovely Lizzie's blog! But if you get lost... here is the whole listing!!!

THANK YOU for drawing attention to ovarian cancer. My grandmother died of cervical cancer (which also spread to her ovaries) and I can't believe that it doesn't get more attention!
