M5D Breast Cancer Freebie 4 U!!

EDITED to add cards by my lovely Design Sisters!!  (see below)
Only at McMahon Five Designs
Our DT Sister, Bonnie  has been feeling down since learning the news that her friend, Elise was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Many of us have followed Jacque's journey this year with Breast Cancer.  We are all affected by this disease in one form or another and we can all do one thing to protect ourselves.  SELF EXAMS!  It's quick and simple and can save your life.

The M5D girls rallied together this past week to not only cheer up our sweet Bonnie's spirits but to help bring Awarness to such an important issue that affects us all.  

To put our efforts in action, we came up with the this  
there is one stipulation before you download him.  
You have to promise to perform a self exam!  
It's on God's Honor System and we know you will 
do this for Yourself ...and... your Family!

I made a card with a detachable ornament using this cute bear (I made him into a polar bear, but you can make him into a brown teddybear or other color would be cute too!)  It can be used to hang on a tree ... or your recipient can hang it somewhere year-round to remind her to do her monthly self exam.  Also, this week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is to use a pink ribbon on your card or project. 

And here's more inspiration from my lovely DT Sisters!!

As an added BONUS, we also came up with a set of 7 Breast Cancer Awareness Images to buy!  
100% of PROFITS will go to

You can buy this set here:

I've made some blinky banners (and a steady badge) to help spread the word.  We'd LOVE for you to grab one of these and add to your own blog sidebar (or the long one in a post.)  THANK YOU!!
