UNITED WE CONQUER! Ellen Hutson BCRF Fundraiser Blog Hop


Hello everyone!  Thanks for stopping by.  I have something very special to share with you today.  I'm a part of the Ellen Hutson Breast Cancer Research Fund Fundraiser blog hop.  I love that I have the opportunity to share this awesome opportunity with you.

My own grandmother battled breast cancer.  And I'm happy to say that she won that battle when I was about 12 years old.  She was a survivor and lived many happy healthy years after she conquered this disease.  I realize that not all people win the battle and that breast cancer continues to touch the lives of women that we love.

In honor of three amazing mothers, Chaitali, Julie and Ellen, teamed up to find a way that they could make a difference and honor these very special women in their lives and actively contribute to finding a cure for breast cancer. Together we have created the Courage Stamp & Die Set.  $25 from the purchase price of each Courage Stamp & Die Set will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  That's HUGE!

I'll be using this stamp and die set in today's video tutorial.  Be sure to check that out.  I'll include still shots of the projects I created below.


We know that many of you are affected by this disease or other forms of cancer and we are turning to you for help. After much research our team made the decision to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the nation. To learn more about BCRF please visit their website at https://www.bcrfcure.org/
Through this fundraiser, it is our goal to educate and raise money for research and support services for patients and survivors battling breast cancer.

Won’t you join us?
Donate, stamp, share, create—there are many ways you can contribute!  Visit the Ellen Hutson BCRF fundraiser page to find out how and to follow our progress.
Together we can!

I love that this stamp set is so versatile.  While it was created to benefit the BCRF, it can be used to raise awareness for any cause that you choose.  Watch the video tutorial below to find out why I chose a green ribbon for one of my cards.  (Here's a hint...it's for my mama...)

  11. Your cards are stunning! Cancer sucks-period! We need cures for all cancer, I have many friends who have fought BC and my husband fought colon cancer, he lost his battle at the young age of 52. First colonoscopy revealed stage 5 colon cancer, he fought for 2 years to the day. It wasn't to be. I'm going to a BC "party" at the Rice Mansion later in June, I am hoping to make a set of BC cards to donate. Yes, cancer causes are near and dear to my heart so I had to jump on board and buy this set, besides I couldn't resist when Ellen Hudson is donating $25 for every set bought! Hugs, Brenda
