Drunken Stampers Challenge #95 ~ Think Peach for Endometrial / Uterine Cancer Month

We’ve started our first challenge with Drunken Stampers today! Theme as you see above is to Think Peach for Endometrial/Uterine Cancer Awareness Month which is September.
I see the irony now but as many of you know I was diagnosed on Sept. 9th last year with Endometrial Cancer. I am VERY fortunate and that it was only stage I.
[No matter how uncomfortable things are…get yer girlie parts checked out!! Especially if things don’t seem right. The earlier things are detected, treatments and such are in your favour. My diagnosis was a complete surprise not only to me but also to my doctor.]

So we’re trying to get you to Think Peach for this month!

YaY! I’m so glad that Drunken Stampers has started back up again, I can play with other fun things and get my mind out of just using 5 steps to create cards (with Easy Peasy Christmas cards)!

I was feelin’ shabby so I grabbed flipped through Webster’s Pages and found this fabulous patterned paper! OH WOW! I JUST noticed that I stuck the sheet on the wrong way! Hahahaaa! The bird nest is on it’s side, oh that’s too funny! Well ignoring that…I stamped the sentiment from Verve’s Believe Stamp set. I stamped the ribbon with embossing ink then used heat and stick power to stick on the Microfine Orange glitter. (Peach is a tough colour to pin down!)
Distressed and inked up the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink as well as the embossed scroll work from Tim Holtz.

Now…pop on over to the Drunken Stampers Blog to see the wonderful work the gals…Barb, Deanne, Jackie, Suzanne and Donna have done with this challenge!

ALSO…you’re going to want to play in every Drunken Stamper Challenge in September with us!! When you do you’ll entered to win the contents of Spike’s Trunk! Well it’s not a trunk really…it’s about the size of a shoe box but the trunk sounded snazzy! Get a peak of a couple of items in it where each week we reveal more!

I always appreciate your comments! Thanks for visiting today!

  1. Beauty card Spike!!
    LOL I never would have noticed about the paper if you hadn’t mentioned it!
    Soooooo happy to be back for another round of Drunken Stampers!! Thanks for inviting me to the partay!

  2. Hi Spike,

    I agree with Donna, I would never have noticed your comment about the paper. This card says so much, Endometrial Cancer is no laughing matter, in fact no cancer is. But we have all heard stories of people who refused to give in and made a recovery. Well done dear friend. LOL
