National Wear Red Day!

"Go Red" on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 3, 2012.
The American Heart Association launched this campaign a few years ago to educate women about the risk factors associated with heart Disease.  Heart disease is still the No. 1 Killer of women. Click on this link to read more. 
I'll be wearing red today and here are a few ladies who are showing their 
support by wearing red too. 

The background, butterfly, woman and flower are images from Dezinaworld.
The image above is my Mother, June. She loved the color red. The background image and Steam punk flower  are from Dezinaworld
The image of the woman, music background and the roses are from Dezinaworld.
If you are visiting from How Sweet The Sound, it must be Pink Saturday. I hope you are in the pink and having a wonderful day!

  1. Linda
    We don't have such a day over here but hats off to you for bringing it to my attention and to many others.
    What wonderful pieces of art but let me start with your beautiful mother and what a way to honour a mum by creating a piece of art with her image on it.
    As for the others, fabulous use of June's images and making them extra special with the sentiment behind them.

  2. Hi Linda,
    WOW !! What a wonderful post today. Your tribute to Red dress day is fantastic and I am so pleased to have you use my images, i feel honored to be part of this post. Your pieces are absolutely gorgeous and inspiring and i may just have to use red more often in all i do, i love the gorgeousness of your pieces and especially the beautiful image of your mother ... wow what a stunning lady.
    have a great day my friend and thanks for bringing awareness to this cause too.
    hugs June xxx

  12. Beautiful creations and important message indeed!

  13. How did I miss this! My favorite color is red and I would have worn red on the 3rd, but somehow I was outta the loop. Next year...
    Your mama is pretty! and your tags are great I love those images.

  14. Lovely reds for a good cause on Pink Saturday, Linda! As to my carpetbag - I have defaulted to one I made a few years ago as a prop for a play - used a tapestry pillow sham, folded in half, stitched up sides and faux leather handles from fabric store notions and trim. It'll do - and save me $100!
