Candy Cane Shoppe

I was one of the lucky winners of a jammed packed card kit on Designs On Cloud Facebook page.  The terms were to create a set of Christmas cards using their cutting patterns and/or digital stamps.  This is my first card using Ginger Bear Girl pattern....she's adorable!  She was a freebie I believe this Summer.  Sign up for their newsletter so you won't miss out on their weekly freebie.

Here's a picture of the kits:


Today is your day!

Here's my second card submitted to Latina Crafter's WCM Day '12.  The sentiment is from Hoy es tu día stamp set and the gift is from The Stamps of Life, Birthday4Cookie set.  Paper was a RAK.

October BCA Blog Hop

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Welcome to October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today's hop is dedicated to those who are breast cancer survivors, mother, sister, aunt, or neighbor who have breast cancer and to those who lost the battle. Reminder that please, schedule your mammogram. Self-examination doesn't always detect the nodules. We have some great blog candy for this hop: 
Anita has graciously offered in remembrance a $20 Gift Card to Michaels to one lucky winner. Heather Dennis of Fresh Brewed Designs, www.freshbreweddesigns.com, has graciously offered to sponsor with a $15 digital stamp gift card to her shop. 
Daisy Collins of Tsunami Rose Designs, , has graciously offered a sheet your choice of her 8.5 x 11 Vintage Digital Printable Scrapbook Paper - "Bingo Pink" or "Bingo Rose"
 Lynne will make one lucky winner a pink and white bracelet with a pink ribbon. 
 For one other lucky winner, Lynne will make a pink cross that looks like it has been crocheted but made with her embroidery machine with a breast cancer awareness. I know this one is purple but the cross for the prize is pink with a breast cancer awareness ribbon in the center. 
We have a beautiful group of ladies who will show-case a special project to a personal crusade for Lynne, who is a survivor! 
Here is my card using Fresh Brewed Designs, Save The Hooters rubber stamp set:

For my second card I used Latina Crafter's BCA Dando la pelea stamp set.
