We're Giving Good this Month!

In honor of 
Breast Cancer 
Awareness Month 
and this AMAZING Woman, Mother, Wife, and Creative Chicklet...
 We are Giving Good
this month in honor of our Pit Crew creative
AJ was recently diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. She's been aggressive in her fight. She's been through surgeries and a roller coaster of doctor's appointments (all within the last two months) and she will begin her chemo rounds in the next few weeks. 
Michelle and I are more than blessed to have her on our team. She is a huge inspiration to us, a kind, giving person. AJ and I met several years ago, like most stampers do, in the forums of Splitcoast. We finally met in real life, so to speak, in the Summer of 2009 and again and again from Summer to Winter. She is my west coastie friend. We are on opposite sides of the US, but her friendship is very dear to me and a life without AJ is not an OPTION!
In honor of AJ's "fight like a GIRL" attitude and kickin' cancer in the pants, we are donating a portion of the sale of the My Wish for You set this month in her honor to the 
Susan G. Komen Foundation, affiliate in the Puget Sound

This is me and AJ. The day we met, it was like meeting an old friend. She has that way about her and I love her for it. If she needed me to come to Washington, I wouldn't hesitate. It's AMAZING the people you meet in this life. We text, we chat, we skype in our jammies, bed head and no makeup. She is AJ, she is my friend above all, so when she's hurting, so am I! Wub ya AJ!
Winter CHA 2011
The "My Wish for You" stamp set is available on our website. 
It's an amazing opportunity to give back and get inky at the same time.

We love you AJ! 
~Lisa and Michelle
