~Cancer Awareness at the Cutting Cafe~

One of the hardest things I battle is depression and anxiety. I know its a stigma that most folks don't want to admit to but I have found myself in the deepest hole lately. Finding myself hiding under the covers or in my house and not wanting to come out. I guess I've been having a pity party for one but recognize that I needed to find a new party to hang out at. Then I look at those fighting much bigger battles and I think how selfish I am for even feeling this way. I know I'm lucky that I don't have the struggles and fights that some have and I need to suck it up and keep moving. So this weeks inspiration at The Cutting Cafe helps me to remember how truly blessed I am and how I need to thank God for the blessings that I have.
This week we're raising awareness at The Cutting Cafe in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and Cancer Awareness in November. These sets were so meaningful to work with and they have so many possibilities!! So hurry over and check these out! For $7.00 you could own both sets and be able to make some incredible projects for those you know that are or who may have been touched by this horrible disease. 
The two sets that I worked with are..
THINK PINK..PRINTABLE STAMP SET which comes with 50 images..25 in black & white and 25 in Pink
RIBBON SHAPED CARD..TEMPLATE..CUTTING FILE SET comes with the card, sentiments and envelope!
I made a little "Thinking Of You" set. I made the Ribbon Card along with, what I call a Paper Weight of sorts. 
Please take a browse through all of the Cancer Awareness files at The Cutting Cafe here
I've lost many friends and family members to this disease I pray that one day we won't need files like this anymore. Cancer stinks in all forms and I pray that I see a cure in my lifetime. My thoughts are with my friend Niki as she begins her third fight with cancer. 
I hope you like and thanks for looking!!
