Let's SQUASH cancer!

My Mom had breast cancer five years ago and I feel so lucky that she is a survivor.  She has triple negative so she has a high risk of recurrence so we are so fortunate it has not returned.  She participated in a clinical trial, and went through a lot.  She is on vacation right now, and that always gives me a reminder of what it would be like to not have her in my life since I feel that I should not call her during her time away.  That is soooo difficult for me since we talk every couple of days or at least I know she is available.  When she is on vacation, I have this panic that she isn't around.
For this card, I used the wonderful image from Imagine That Digis by Kris which also happens to be our image for this month's progressive challenge.  If you join the challenge you can get next month's image for free.  the patterned papers are from TLC.

Dear Cupcakes

For my card I used one of the new digis that is from Imagine That Digis by Kris.  The sentiment is from TLC.  I added some Stickles to my cupcakes and snow to give them some sparkle.
The most exciting part is that I have been asked by Kris to be on the Design Team and I am excited to joining them.  I was able to be a guest designer for the summer so this is wonderful to be a full part of the team now.
