MY PROJECTS:


I used a 12" foam ring, 1 yard of BCA fabric, 1/2 yard of pink fabric.  Cut squares at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" rolled them to make a cone, pinned to the foam.  I purchased 2 1/2 yards of the flower ribbon at Joann's.

Here's the card I made using the digi paper I designed for LUFP:
 Inside sentiment.
The stripe pink paper is from my stash, the heart with ribbon is my own design.  The sentiments are from Jillian Vance "Have Faith" stamp set, one of our sponsors.  The ribbon and bracket were cut with my SCAL2, the ribbon is one of the free images in SCAL2.  The pink pearlies are by Recollections.  I used the card sketch provided by Stampin Daisies for their first challenge, also one of our sponsors.


GIVEAWAY:
 
A pink commuter mug with pink goodies!  
 1 yard each, pink and hot pink of wide organza ribbon
1 yard each, white and hot pink organza ribbon
5 yards of pink twine
1 pack of pink pearlies by BasicGrey
1 pack of pink bling
12" of flower ribbon, the one I used on the wreath
1 stamp by Studio G "Don't forget to smell the roses"

   Please leave a comment, and I will choose a winner on Monday, August 29th. 
I do hope you link up your pink projects in October!  There are so many prizes....some sponsors have already sent out boxes of goodies to us!  Most importantly, get your mammos and remind your girlfriends....grab our LUFP badge and help us spread the word! :)

Deanna's Creations said...

The projects you posted are great! I love all the pink goodness. About a month ago, I started jogging. My goal is to be able to jog a 5k. Well, I am about 1/3 of the way there. This past Saturday my step-sister (who I call my sister), called and asked if I wanted to do the Relay for Life 5k with her. She told me she wanted to dedicate it to my mother who passed away when I was 14 years old. Needless to say, she made me tear up! She's not my blood sister, but it doesn't matter--she is my heart!

Cheryl Gaffney said...

Thanks for the heads up about your giveaway!! I'll be sure to come back for some more details in the weeks to come! :)
