Link Up for Pink!

Dropping in to remind everyone of the Link Up for Pink, linking party I am hosting in October  1st thru 14th, bringing breast cancer awareness to our fellow crafty friends through our projects.  We also wanted to take the opportunity to share the list sponsors we currently have lined up for the event.


Digital Delights by Louby Loo - SVG Files for Sure Cuts A Lot


Pat, mother-in-law, always schedules her mammo in June.  She requested cards to sent out to her friends, reminding them to schedule their appointments.
Here are two cards I created; I will be making 5 cards of each for her.  The Breast Cancer Awareness bear is by Paper Crafting World and the sentiment is my own. 

I'm also doing a small giveaway, please leave a comment and grab the Link Up for Pink button and help us spread the word. UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Happy Father's Day!

Here's the card I created for my FIL.  I used the bowling shirt file from The Green Room Collection by SVG Cuts.
The card base is SEI and the argyle paper is by Colorbök.

And here's my Dad's card, a guayabera shirt card inspired by Dorcas.  My dad loves to wear guayaberas.   I'll need to add an inside pocket to include his cash.

Here's a pic of my Dad, taken last year on his birthday....yeppers I look just like him! ¡Feliz Día Del Padre!

These are the stamps I used:  I masked off the woohoo and used only celebrate, the stamp is by Studio G.

Jillian's Big Birthday Blog Hop {CLOSED}

Welcome to Jillian's Big Birthday Celebration Blog Hop.  Today we're celebrating Jillian's 12th birthday.  Jillian started her own greeting card business at 10 then her own stamp line at 11, isn't she an amazing young lady!
If you arrived from Brynn's place, you're on track, if you want to start from the beginning, please visit Jillian.

The pattern paper is by Colorbok, glitter paper by DCWV.  Notice, I switched the hair, I used Rudie's pigtails on Suzee.  I really wanted to add pom poms.  I tried following a tutorial on making pom poms using a fork, but I got frustrated.  Instead, I bought Clover's Pom Pom maker.  The pack comes with two pom pom makers, one makes 3/4" and the other 1", I used the 3/4".  You can find it at your local craft store in the knitting accessories.

Your next stop is the talented Sue!

PIF - Hello Friend

I made this card for a PIF (pay it forward) gift and it was inspired by Nicole's card.  When I bought this paper pad by Colorbök, I knew I would pair it up with a Martha Stewart stamp.   I stamped the background using the large and small stamp.  The sentiment is by Studio G dollar stamp; ribbon from my stash; the butterfly was a cut in SCAL.
