October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I recently ordered some stamps from Papertrey Ink ~ one of my all-time favorite stamp companies.  They now carry THREE quilting stamp sets!  One set was supposed to be a gift for someone in my family who makes the most beautiful quilts and who I am very jealous of, but still love!!  🙂    

Well, my order arrived and I had a brainstorm!!  I had been wanting to make a special card in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness this month and recently was looking at various quilts on the Internet and saw this quilt that I fell in love with:   http://quilting.about.com/od/picturesofquilts/ig/Quilting-for-a-Cure/Ribbons-Galore-Quilt.htm

Needless to say, I now have to order ANOTHER set of these stamps to replace the gift I used!!  🙂

I’m sorry the colors are really no where near what they are IRL.  The darker pink looks a little like coral here…it’s actually a very pretty pink.   😦     Here’s a closeup of the quilt blocks on my card:
