October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every year I get my mammogram and I hope that you do too. Many years ago I  talked my mother, mother in law and aunt into getting their mammograms.  They all went at one time. It was a blessing because my mother in law had breast cancer. She was fortunate  that it was caught early and we were too because we got to spend many more years with her. 

I made this card, bookmark and  ATC for someone who has breast cancer and will be going through treatments. If you know someone that needs a little encouragement, send them a card and let them know you care. Breast cancer is NOT exclusive to women, y'all.

I've been steady making Christmas cards. With the way the postal service is running I may have to send my overseas cards at Halloween. One of my House Mouse DT members said it took 7 weeks to get her birthday card. I thought I was being smart and mailing it early. I made an envelope to go with this card. You'll see the next few cards on my blog will have matching envelopes.

I love watercoloring. Some people have a natural talent and can pick up the skill of watercoloring easily. Others, like me, just watch a gazillion YouTube videos for hours. If you want to get better you have to practice they say. Just watching people who know what they are doing is like watching magic. It's lovely to see how they blend and the way the colors seem to swirl into a piece of art.
