MOJO161-Give a Hoot

Stampin up mojo monday owl bat punch
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and time to pay tribute to victims and survivors of this relentless disease.  As many of you know, I lost my beloved sister-in-law, Karol, earlier this year to breast cancer.  I cherish the time I was able to witness her humor and generosity.  She is deeply missed.

Two additional women in my family have survived the disease. They will each receive one of my "pink" Halloween cards.  We all know someone who has been affected.  Be smart.  Early detection is key to fighting breast cancer.

Today's Mojo Monday sketch will get the creative juices flowing.  Perhaps you want to take your project for a "pink" spin this week, too?


  • Stampin up breast cancer owl punch My owl silhouette was inspired by a card my fellow demonstrator T Huggins created for a swap (her version being in more traditional Halloween colors).  She also notes it's not her original idea.
  • Punches were the superstars for the owl, stem (Two-Step Bird Punch), bat and "moon."  Even the sentiment shaped up with two oval punches.
  • Blushing Bride card stock took a trip through my Big Shot inside the Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Holiday Mini Catalog).  Very pretty in pink.
  • Stampin up breast cancer button I love the Blushing Bride Candy Cane Button (Big Designer Buttons, Holiday Mini Catalog).  Super sized button holes made it a dream to criss cross with Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

    1. Hi Mary
      LOve how you did this pink halloween on honor of Breast Cancer.
      You did as always awesome creations.
      Greetings from Puerto Rico


    2. That’s a beautiful card and a wonderful way to not only honor your sister-in-law but remind everyone to be proactive!

    3. This card is adorable. I simply love it. What a way to keep it in the Halloween theme but changing it up a little bit. Who needs orange anyway?

    4. My sister is a survivor and your gorgeous card would be so perfect to send at this time. Thank you for your amazing ideas!

    5. Simply adorable. You have the best ideas. I love the shadow idea on the owl and bat etc. Love the color combo too. You rock as usual. Can’t wait to see what awaits tomorrow. ((Hugs)) Becky

    6. Well there’s a color combination i never would have thought of for halloween, but understand the concept. And as always the effect is stunning! Beautiful!

    7. Gorgeous and inspirational cards, Mary. With all the breast cancer in your family, I sure hope all the women in your family get exams & mammograms often!

    8. Mary – How beautiful – what a lovely idea! And extra fun with the Halloween theme! I have a special survivor in my life, and I am going to make a card for her as well – thanks for the idea and sharing your amazing work with us!

    9. You are so clever. This is a great card.
      I know it has been difficult. We have all been affected one way or another but the love for them never leaves our hearts.

      Thanks for sharing your beautiful talents with us.
