Good Thursday morning everybody!

(Look closely at the hearts and skulls are checked!)

Today's release is a special release, one that affects many people today and around the world...

From the owner of StampInsanity Stamps, Beth:

"Katie for a Cure is a very special set I designed to honor my cousin Kate, who earlier this year, at age 33, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Kate is the picture of health and vitality, and her spirit is magical. She has two very young children, and is in the prime of her life – which makes her diagnosis all the more distressing. As only Katie can, she is fighting this disease with the strength and grace of a pure champion. Her story is sadly not unique, but this is my Katie, and I had to do something. It is tragic, but I am sure that my family is not the only one to have this disease repeatedly rearing its head at us. It is my hope that together we will raise a donation that we can all be proud of. And if nothing else, Kate will get a smile from all the beautiful cards that you share with us. Thank you all in advance for your donations and your creations!"

This image and set for Katie and Breast Cancer is fabulous, you can tell that a lot of love went into creating this set :)  I really wanted to give my card a StampInsanity feel to it...
So, I pulled out some of my horded stash of Sassafras Lass DP and Papertrey Ink CS; added a doilie and May Arts Ribbon, some bling from Recollections and used up every single Pink-colored Copics that I own :)

I hope Beth, Katie and all of you likey as much as I do :)

Here's the entire digital set:

The cost for the set will be $10
with ALL proceeds benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Please be sure to visit the Groovy girls 'Pink and Black' creations...
