Unity Thursday: Cancer Awareness

Hello my lovely friends.

Today is Unity day. So much greatness releasing today. I feel like I need 2 blog posts to even cover it all.

First, I will talk about the cancer releases. As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. However, these stamps that are releasing today can be ANY kind of cancer, which I love.
Tracy has created two beautiful fashionista girls and I have a lot of NEW cancer-related sentiments also releasing today. I hope you enjoy them and can put them to use in your own life.
This sentiment I designed is well....the truth. I know it seems a bit harsh, and I apologize if I offend anyone, but it is truly how I feel {and I know a lot of others feel the same}. Sometimes, you just wanna scream it from the rooftops. 
Next up, this SWEET adorable little girl I know ;) ;) got to get crafty too for this release! 
There is a new holiday Kid's Kit that can be used with children thanking others for gifts or making gifts. How awesome is that? 
My daughter had a blast coloring these adorable images and wanted to do more, so I know thank you's this year will be much easier with this kit. LOVE! 
I hope you will pop over to the Unity website, because there is SO much more releasing I can't even cover it all. So go take a look-see for yourselves and I'll see you back here next time!

Next up on the hop is Miss Jolande.

Beautiful card - and great sentiment! I know a few cancer survivors that would love to say that :) Also, love your daughter's colouring - think I may have to pick these up for my boys.

I adore your "f--- cancer" card. It's so perfect. The black and pink are great and I love the contrast between the soft airbrushed looking background with the bold words on top--very apt.

Everyone cares for someone who has cancer so these stamps are so incredible. The stamps for kids are awesome because they reach out to the creative part of all kids plus teach them social skills. Absolutely wonderful ideas and the cards are beautiful!

I think there are going to be a lot of big hands who are going to want to color these cuties as well. Nice job on the cards.

Sam said...

Love all the cards, Dakota did a great job on colouring. She is very talented.

Becky said...

Great Cards !

Lori Gauerke said...

Yeah for Unity, What a fun giveaway!!

Tia S Robinson said...

I love the f--- cancer sentiment. Being a cancer survivor myself, that was my motto. I also love all the Halloween sentiments, they are some of my favorites.

Natasha said...

Im really loving all of the cancer awareness stamps and your sentiment is one that I know many people will use and appreciate rather that beating about the bush. These little hands stamps are really good too, I have four children and they all love getting involved in many crafty activities including hijacking my stamps and alcohol pens, as I disabled and cant always do strenuous activities with them, crafting together is a special time we can spend together. Thanks for the inspiration with beautiful cards and honesty with your stamps. Hugs xNx

Debbie Caldwell said...

no comment on the one card...but I do love the gal with the scarf. I love the little stamps for little hands.

marilyn said...

I love your card even though it isn't a word I would use. If my Mom's cancer comes back for a third time, I may buy that stamp!!!lol. Love that unity is making stamps for kids and your daughter did a beautiful job.

Brit K. Designs said...

Great cards Erin, and I completely agree with the sentiment on the one card, even if it offends people. We've thought that often in my family over the last year. Dakota's cards are cute, she did an awesome job. :-)

Susan D said...

The cancer awareness stamp hits close to home...nicely done!

I love your F Cancer card, such a beautiful design and I love the sentiment. I lost my mother to cancer just a little over 12 months ago and I think we should be rude to it at every opportunity.
