October is my favorite month!  And it is almost here!  It is also Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Most of us know someone whose life has been touched by the disease in some way.  Many of us give our time, money, or both to the search for a cure.  And we all want to offer support and encouragement to those close to us who have had to fight, or continue to do so, against this disease.

Today's Sassy Studio Designs 24 hour Fabulous Freebie Friday image is I'm a Survivor.  She comes with a sassy sentiment because laughter is always a good medicine for the soul.  Head over to our Paper Craft Planet group to download her.  There may even be a special little something extra for you when you get there.  And while you're at it why not check out all the amazing project from the Fabettes?  We also have a new challenge starting today.  This fortnight it is "Support the Girlst".  We want to see a card offering comfort, support, encouragement, or care.  It can be for any reason, but it must feature a SSD image.  Bonus entry if you use one of the FFF images.  And if it's pink, well even better!  That calls for another bonus entry!

My card is for a fellow crafty friend and design team mate.  She is a survivor and I wanted to send her a little love so she would know that I'm in awe of her strength.  The sketch is from Sketch Saturday (#226).  Papers are Basic Grey.  I used my trusty, but underused, corner rounder punch on the layers.  I added just a few flowers and a pearl flourish for the finished look.  The sentiment, cut with a Spellbinders Label Fourteen Nestabilities die, is from a Sassy Studio Designs set called Think Pink Sentiments and it too is available for free for 24 hours on PCP.

Thanks for checking in today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you!  It is supposed to rain here...  Perfect "stay inside and craft" weather.  Or nap.  Yes, I could see a nap in my future.  They, like the corner rounder punch, are under utilized!

Markers used: Copics (E23, E13, E11, E21, W4, W6, W8, W10, R81, R85, R20, RV29).

Happy Friday!

Really pretty! Isn't it funny how much of a different look rounding the corners can make? Love all the bright bold papers. Glad your friend is a survivor!
