HELLO to " No Bra Day"!!!

Good Tuesday morning to everyone!

Did your read or hear what day it is?
It's National No Bra Day.  That's correct, take it off and just go free.  Let them hang out, hand down, flop around and as I told you yesterday, find something that will make you smile.

Why are we having a day like No Bra Day?  I went to  http://nationaldaycalendar.com/2015/10/12/ and found this article after hearing so many ladies giggling about it on TV this morning.  I always want to share and here it is:
National No Bra Day is observed annually on October 13. This is a day to leave your bra at home.
National No Bra Day is meant to promote breast cancer awareness and to help raise money for research. Many women who have survived breast cancer are unable to go without a bra as they need it to hold their prosthesis after surgery. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and National No Bra Day should serve as a reminder for all women to be screened for breast cancer.
Make an appointment for a mammogram. Use #NoBraDay or #NationalNoBraDay when posting on social media.  Make a contribution to the American Cancer Society or Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Now you know why this day is called National No Bra Day.

National Train Your Brain Day is observed annually on October 13.
This day was created to encourage everyone to expand and “exercise” their brain and use more of it’s potential capacity.  There are many different ways to “exercise” your mind and improve your cognitive skills such as reading, word puzzles, number games, brain teasers, trivia games, riddles and word games.  Learning something new is another “exercise” that is a benefit to everyone’s brain on National Train Your Brain Day (as well as any other day).

Here is what I worked on to train my brain:  This card will be seen on MojoMonday.blogspot.com
cardstock: Neenah Bright White; pink Recollection; Ranger watercolor paper
Sizzix embossing folder for the mat;  blocked stencil 
stamps used: Close to my Heart for sentiment and Martha Stewart clear stamps for floral 
Tim Holtz Distress Inks: shabby shutters, tumbled glass, mustard seed, picked raspberry, dried marigold and milled lavender
punch: Martha Stewart 1/2" corner punch

cardstock; Neenah bright white; black Recollection and Ranger watercolor
Ranger Distress inks: see the list above and add black and white archival ink
gesso was added to the watercolor paper to form a design; after it dried, then the inks were applied
die: Tim Holtz's thinlits Alterations word dies

I'm continuing to try new designs with distress inks as well as with Ken Oliver's color burst.  Each project comes out so different .  Here, I tried to combine the distressing with stenciling and stamping.

Are you bra-less or have you started training your brain?  Do both today.  It can be done.
Thank you all for your continued support and comments.  

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
