DT Announcement & Breast Cancer Freebie

We would like to start off by thanking everyone that applied for our Design Team.  THANK YOU!    It was a fun seeing all the beautiful cards submitted and the lovely smiling faces too!  Please help us in  welcoming the New Members of the M5D Design Team!

New DT Members

January Guest Designer
We will have a more official Meet-n-Greet on January 1st.   Mark your calendars!  :)



This digi was created as a FREEBIE GIFT to remind all women to check themselves each month for breast health.  Please accept this digi and grab the code for your own blog to help spread awareness this month!


It's that time again when we remind you about your monthly self exam!  And when you have completed it, you can download the image below for FREE!


Something NEW we are going to do per a request we received 
is to let you know even though WE focus on Breast Cancer Awareness, 
the ribbon represents so many other cancers and diseases.  
Each month we will list that month's Awareness and their Colors.



Below are the Awareness and Colors for January 

Cervical Health Awareness Month - Teal & White Ribbon

National Birth Defects Prevention Month - Pink & Blue Ribbon www.nbdpn.org/current/resources/bdpm2010.html

Thyroid Awareness Month - Pink, Blue & Teal (tri-color)

Glaucoma Awareness Month - Green Ribbon http://www.preventblindness.org/news/observe.html

Now For some INSPIRATION!!!!

This was short notice for the new ladies (plus their official start date isn't until Jan 1st) so thank you very much for putting a project together so quickly.
 A few of the girls are still working on their projects and as they get them complete,
I will add them to this post.
Please check back to see their beautiful work!

If you happened to see my earlier post about our kitten that lives in our Christmas tree,
 he has graduated to building himself a perch on top of our tree.  AND he turns the top section of lights on & off...depending on his mood, of course.  LOL!

He is our Living Angel on top our tree.


And yes, our tree is still pretty bare so he doesn't break anything. 
The kids seem to get more enjoyment out of this kitten being in the tree 
than they do ornaments.  So I'm going with it...this year anyway.  :)


Thank you all for stopping by and if I don't post again this week, have a
very Merry and Blessed Christmas.

OMG Sue your cat is so funny. What a little cutie. I can't believe her perched his butt on the top. I think I could enjoy the cat over ornaments too.
Fabulous creations from your DT!
Hugs Bonnie

Your kitten his hilarious!!! Anyway, if you tried to get him out, he'd probably do more harm that good!!! When I try to get my cat off my craft desk, he takes a lot of stuff with him!!!

Thank you so much for the fun free stamps. The cat looks just like our yogi bear. But it was his sister gracie that always likes to get into our tree.
Have a blessed and wonderful Merry Christmas.

Christine said...

I was just thinking, you should submit your kitty pictures to the website "Cute Overload". It's as cute as anything I've seen on there!

Like our house, the cat is in control. Super cute! Looking at the ribbons and what the colors are - I am affected with 3 out of the 4. Thank you for the hope - and the awareness of so many health challenges.

Have a Very Merry Christmas Sue! Hope you and your family have a wonderful celebration :) The kitty on the Tree - LoL! xox ~Jeni

Great sample cards with the freebie- your cat makes a great angel on the tree- that could be an interesting situation if the ornaments were on the tree!

Amy Johnson said...

And I thought the first picture you showed of the kitty in the tree was cute! This one takes the prize! I can't believe she hasn't knocked the tree over yet!

Great projects by the DT! I plan on working on mine today. Were not celebrating the holidays till Monday when my daughter comes home so I have time. Merry Christmas everyone!
