Made it Myself Mondays 19

Woohoo, another Made it Myself Monday! You have to stop by the You Had Me At Craft blog and see all the great things going on over there.
I love Halloween! So this year I made some “all grown up” cards to send out to some of my friends. I love My Mind’s Eye and I bought quite a few pieces of 29th Street Market’s “Adoring Print” which was a perfect background for these simple cards. I used both Studio G stamps and Tim Holtz stamps, and of course Stampendous Detail Clear embossing powder. All sentiments I did on the computer. I’ve also been practicing with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, and I don’t think it turned out too bad. Happy Halloween.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Most of us have had our lives touched by this horrible disease is one way or another. Waiting to find out if you have breast cancer is a very stressful thing to go through and I’m very thankful to the people who were there for me while I waited to hear if my life was about to be turned upside down. It’s not. I made this card as a thank you for “being there for me” and also as a reminder of how important it is to get a mammogram. I used Deja Views’ “Sweet Romance Grey Damask” and Core'dinations cardstock. I stamped and colored My Favorite Things Stamps’ “Think Pink.” I also used Studio g’s black ink and Stampendous Detail Clear Embossing powder. I hope she enjoys getting it this week. Please get a mammogram every year if you are over 40, it really can be a matter of life and death.

Card Drive

During my time going from blog to blog and being inspired I have come to realize something. It is not just all the beautiful and creative ideas that have inspired me, it is the beautiful and caring people who create the blogs that have inspired me the most. Today I was again inspired by the creative community.

There is a “Card Drive for Kids“ with Spina Bifida going on right now. Please check out this wonderful card drive and help out with some cards for these very brave children. For all the information please check out:
