For a Cause and Cause I Love You

Please scroll down to see my Post for Mo's Design Team...

My niece will be walking for a cure in October. She will doing the Avon Breast Cancer walk for my sister who is a breast cancer survivor. She is very dear to me, and means more to me than words can ever say. She is my niece by marriage and I fell in love with her the second I met her, and knew she was perfect for my nephew and so glad she is a part of my family. The walk she will be doing is through  New York City and is a two day event. During the evening they sleep in tents. So I thought I would make this special scarf to keep her warm. It is a breast cancer scarf and made with bamboo and wool and is very soft to the touch. I also made a special card for her... So thanks Pat for finding  the perfect image from Satuarated Canary for me. It was my first Satuarated Canary and I am sure it will not be my last.

So without further adieu... here is the picture of the scarf and the card as for the card, my inspiration for the design came from Claudia

I am entering this in the following challenge(s):

1. Satuarated Canary: HERE Dotty
2. Wild Orchid Craft: HERE Sumer Flowers

Image: Satuarated Canary
Paper: SU Black and different background papers
Extras: MS Border Punch, Doohicky Tag Punch, Button, WOC Flowers, Ribbon, Butterfly, Pearls
Image Colored with Copics

Scarf Pattern is a free pattern on Raverly.  I used 2 skeins of Classic Elite Yarn-Wool Bam Boo-Color Dogwood
50% wool 50% bamboo

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE and the ribbon  from The Ribbon Girl which you can find HERE

As always, thanks for stopping by my part of the world, and now that you're here why not leave me a little love as well your comments mean so much and always brighten my day.

Aunt Debbie!
I cannot thank you enough for your thoughtfulness and coming home to this surprise gift made my year!
I am so grateful to have you in my life as my aunt and as a friend.
The scarf is absolutely gorgeous - so soft and cozy and will definitely keep me warm!
I have the card displayed in my house and admire how everything you do is made with so much love.
I am proud and look forward to be walking towards a cure in just one more week! Thank you all for the well wishes!
Lots and lots of love,
