Hope for Hooters


I made this card titled "Hope for Hooters" in recognition of October being designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is also the theme/prompt this week for SATURDAY STAMPERS.

My sweet friend, LESA, who is fighting breast cancer, sent me a pin/button that says Hope for Hooters and was the inspiration for this card. You can read about Lesa's journey with her battle with the vile disease on her blog by clicking HERE.

The owl stamp is a new stamp from HEATHER'S STAMPING HAVEN in Ottawa, Ontario. It is one of Heather's original design stamps.

I water colored the image with twinkling H2O's and added some crystals to the owl for sparkle. The sentiment (Hope for Hooters) is computer generated.

This card is also my submission for this week's SATURDAY STAMPERS challenge to use pink ribbon on your card for breast cancer awareness month.

Ok...now go get your HOOTERS examined!!
