Awareness Challenge

Hello friends, Susan here to introduce this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut challenge.  This week's challenge was selected by our dear, dear Design Team sister, Brenda.  However, I am filling in for Brenda while she deals with a family matter.  Brenda wanted to dedicate this week to Cause Awareness.  Whether your personal cause is Breast Cancer Awareness, Autism Awareness, Lupus Awareness, Diabetes, MS, etc., we invite you to use any Cricut Cartridge and create an "Awareness" project this week.

I do not normally make a habit of sharing details from our DT personal lives, but given the nature of this week's challenge, I feel like this might be appropriate. Our dear Brenda is in need of prayer and kind thoughts as she and her husband are reeling from the discovery last week of her husband's color cancer.  Brenda's hubby has surgery to remove the tumor last week, but they are facing a difficult future as they deal with the repercussions.  Please join us in keeping Brenda and her husband, Dwayne, in your prayers.

With Brenda's husband and family in mind, I am adding to this week's challenge:  If you need to make a card for someone recovering from surgery, you may also link that to this week's challenge.  

Without further ado, I hope you enjoy the Design Team's wonderful Awareness projects:
