Worse than the F word…

is the C word, cancer. I think every single person has been touched by cancer, it is a very scary thing. Our town will be hosting a Relay for Life at the end of the month and I decided to make something and do an online auction with all money earned going to Relay for Life. With vintage windows being all the rage and the fact that I have lots of them, it seemed like the perfect choice. Shelia Irish posted a similar file on another site to share with it’s members. She saw it on another site, and so it goes. Anyhow, it was for one of those machines that use a specific type of file…don’t you hate that?  But I was able to design it in KNK Studio and use it for my window.

IMG_3830 You can change the color of the ribbon, pink is for breast cancer.

I will share the file but hope that if you make it, you share at least one with someone with cancer.  I ask that, as with any file posted on this page,  you do not share the file or sell the file.   Team KNK choose hope

  1. Nancy this is just lovely and a perfect way to share and raise money! I will definitely use this idea although I dont have any windows (YET!) lol
    Thank you for being so generous in more ways than one! I love your work and creativity!

    • Carol, when you open the file you will see the registration marks I used to line it up perfectly. I use a dry erase marker to draw a straight line on the backside of window for straight placement. I would love to see what everyone makes with this!

  2. This is beautiful, Thank you for sharing, I know two cancer survivors that I want to make this for.

  3. Awesome work, Nancy! And I agree…the word “cancer” is so terrrible, I would love to see it completely wiped out!
