Fight Like a Girl!

Hi everyone! I am here with a cute card using Saturated Canary's Boobie Love digi stamp.  Isn't she a cutie??  I think she's such a sassy girl and reminds us to continue fighting for a cure and survival.  I also used Pink by Design's Breast Wishes

So here's my little fact today: For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are 
higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.  So get those mammograms ladies! 
They are very important when it comes to early detection!

Here's a survivor story of a girl named  Alyson who was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC), which is the deadliest form of breast cancer. You can read her story by clicking here.

Don't forget to visit the Link Up for Pink blog and browse around to see some of the wonderful creations by the design team.  We are all doing to spread awareness and remind you all that yearly mammograms are very important!  You also have time to enter the challenge for this month.  Hope you all have a beautiful day!

Magical Tooth Fairy Dust

Hi everyone!  Today I am guest designing for Jaded Blossom once again.  I decided to do something that might help some moms out there for their little ones.  When you look up tooth fairy dusts you see pretty fancy containers.  This is a very economical way of achieving the same result.  I used little favor bags and added some fine glitter and created this cute tag.  I used 3 Girl JAM ribbon to add a little accent.

 I've really enjoyed my time here as a Jaded Blossom guest designer I want to thank Candace and Michelle for giving me this great opportunity.  I really believe in their product and that's why it was so much fun to create with them and for them.  I also want to thank the design team for being so welcoming.

Link Up for Pink Challenge #3

Welcome everyone and I hope you are all having a marvelous day! I am here for the Link Up For Pink monthly challenge and our sponsors Bugaboo Stamps and 3 Girl JAM.  The prizes for this challenge are:
7 digis from Bugaboo and a special Pink Bundle of Crinkle Ribbon and Pink Twine from 3 Girl Jam. The challenge will run through 7/5 and a random winner will be announced on Friday, 7/6.

I am using Twyla and the 3 Girl JAM Cherry Lipstick and Baby Girl crinkle ribbon.  Check both of the sponsors out, they definitely make a great combination!  I also used Pink By Design's Breast Wishes stamp set for the sentiment. 

Here is my small fact for today: About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%)
 will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.  
1 in 8 women??? That's a BIG number!

And here is a story told by Dana, the granddaughter of a breast cancer survivor.  Hopefully this will help someone understand the importance of doing breast exams and a yearly mammogram.  You can click here to read her story.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a great day!

Happy Birthday!

Good morning everybody! Here's a quick card I made with a Dilly Bean digi.  I love these images and they are so great to add a cute little 3 Girl JAM ribbon bow to them.  

I used 3 Girl JAM Goblin Green.  The sentiment is from Close to my Heart Celebration stamp set and the flag dies are from Jaded Blossom.  The flowers are from recollection.  You can't see it in the picture very clearly, but I added a brad that has K.  The person I made this for is a friend of my daughter's named Kathleen :) 

I also decorated the inside of the card.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all have a nice day!

Spread the Love

Hi everybody! I'm so excited to share with you what I made with Jaded Blossom's Spread the Love and Canning Basics stamps.

I found the jar at Joann's for $1 and filled it with strawberry preserves.  Those who know me, know that the kitchen is not my friend, so I didn't do anything homemade! The Strawberry Preserves sentiment are two different stamps from the Canning Basics set as well as the jar stamp and the Spread the Love sentiment is from... well... you guessed it, Spread the Love stamp set. :) 

I cut the box from the silhoutte store (3.75 round box).  It's amazing how easy these are to assemble and they are great to use for favors!   I also used the 3 Girl JAM's Harvest bundle set which include Harvest Orange and Sunflower crinkle ribbon.

Here's a close up of the top of the lid.

Thanks for stopping by! You can get a closer look at the full stamp set by clicking here.  Don't forget to come by tomorrow for another stamp preview!  Have a great day!
