Pink Power

Unknown   The idea for this card came to me last night as I was trying to get to sleep,  I should have gotten up and headed to the studio and got to work, as I didn’t sleep well anyways.  I also knew I was going to pair up these TWO great challenges for this piece….Pink Power Diva Dare over at Verve and the Tag You’re it Challenge #8.

My mom was a Breast Cancer survivor for many years, so I try to make at least one card a year to commemorate her.  Unfortunately later on in life she got Ovarian cancer and wasn’t as lucky to beat that battle.  Love and miss you mom!

 

  This afternoon when I was ready to get started I found another piece of my all time favorite DP and knew it would work perfectly!  SCORE!!! Now I knew I wouldn’t fail!  Onto some details:  For this card I used my new favorite border die cut from Verve as well…love those hearts!  It comes in a pack of 3 and it’s a must have…I linked it up for you.  Next, the hearts and sentiment are also from Verve and come in the With Love Set. I used versa mark and stamped them on the background.  The word HOPE is a die cut and is from Paper Smooches.  I cut it out twice for a drop shadow.  The striped paper is actually made with a piece of Washi tape. The sequins are also from Verve and the small hearts are from the inside of the die cut.  The basic tag was made with the SU punch and lots of paper piecing, which is what I love to do!  

I so appreciate you stopping in and your words of encouragement!  Hope you have a wonderful day and I have inspired you a little bit!

Breast Cancer Month and My Mom

IMG_0001

( my photos are still not coming out great…UGH!!! )

Today over at CAS on Sunday we have a great Sketch for you to try!

CAS

In Honor of October being Breast Cancer month….I decided it was

time to make a card in honor of my mother.  Who in fact

had beaten breast cancer earlier in her life, but unfortunately passed away from a ovarian cancer

later in life.  She died at the age of 62, far to young!

Isn’t she beautiful?  This photo was taken right before she was married.

I miss her as much today as I did 20 years ago.

I am going to send this card to a friend who is battling this horrific disease right now!

I hope it helps in some small way!

We have a sponsor and a great prize that is up for grabs over at

CAS on Sunday!

I hope you come on over and join us…we would love to have you!

Card details:

Here is a photo of what I did to make the word hope.

I took various strips of pink and glued them down on a pink piece of paper

and then cut it out using my Cuttlebug.

Love this look!

The die cuts used for this card are from Paper Smooches.

The banner die at the bottom is from Verve.

I used Sizzix Framelits from SU for my shape and raised

the panel up with pop dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by…..I love when you do it really makes my day!

Tag Your It!

When the every so funny and talented Elise over at the JUGS team

told me this week we were going to be making TAGS.

JUGS195

I will admit the first thing that came to mind was….”Well it was a matter

of time before I crashed and burned on my new Design Team and

this week it’s going to be it!  It was bound to happen soon enough”  LOL.

IMG_0012

Well to my surprise, I had a Blast making these tags for you all!

I will admit, if I had a do over button,one of these would be totally done over,

(Far Right)

but heh…1 out of 4 ain’t bad!  Right?

It’s kinda funny, the first one I made is the one I didn’t like and then

I guess the mojo just started flowing!

Thanks so much Elise for Challenging me

this week, and getting me out of my comfort zone!!!

I sure hope your up to the challenge and JOIN US!!  YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

So head on over to the JUGS team blogs

and see how much talent we have going on to inspire you!

It’s truly amazing!!!

Details are going to be kinda tough for these.
I didn’t stamp a thing on them….is that a sin or what!!
I did a lot of piecing with paper.  I got this great paper pack
at a local discount store yesterday and that is what I
ending up using. It’s by Colorbok.  It cost 2.99…what a steal.
In the front it has two sheets of die cuts, stickers and letters
and the rest is some really cool vintage feel paper.
I did use my cuttlebug and Cricut quite a bit.
If you have any questions at all Please give me a shout out!
I almost forgot…..
Tag your it!!

Where flowers bloom…

……. so does hope!  What a great phrase don’t you think?  Spring is such a great time of year, it’s my favorite season.  It’s Spring Break for my family and I and we are so stoked about it.  We have no major plans for the week, but that’s okay with us, we take it day by day and just wing it.  Yesterday we had a deluge of rain here in Florida and I was able to go into my studio and stamp the day away and not feel guilty. Thank you God for the rain!! It was wonderful!!!!!!  I don’t think I have ever made 5 cards in one day before!!!

Happy Anniversary Honey- 18 years!!

Have a great week my friends and if you can find the time Scrap your heart!
