Challenge #93 Breast Cancer Awereness and/or Friendship

Hello friends of TIME OUT!

We have a very special, important challenge for you... Sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

The next fortnight we try to help raise awareness of Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness month starts in a few days and we want to remind you of how important it is to do a monthly check-it takes 5 mins -if you are not sure how, check this link here

You can also make Friendship-themed projects for this challenge and if you use the color PINK you have a change to win a randomly drawn special price! The overall winner of this challenge will receive a $25 voucher to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store so we have two prices for grabs! 

Our guest designer this time is Yulia from Scrap-Horse blog. Yulia is super talented both with cards and with scrapbooking -if you are new to her blog, do pay her a visit and leave some crafty love! 

Let's have a look what kind of cards our DT has made for your inspiration.
