For All the Survivors

Good Morning, welcome back, I love when you stop by to visit. Today is my post for LINK UP FOR PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness. I decided to do my card for the "Survivors" today as I know they had a very hard battle to overcome this cancer. I wish you the "Very Best Wishes" for the future.

You still have time my friends to post your creation for this fantastic cause.  Your card can be of any design, it just has to have PINK on it.  Okay, that's easy peasy!!  Challenge 3 ends on July 5th. 

There are some awesome prizes to be given out and maybe "YOU" could win the fabby prizes from our Super Duper Sponsors Bugaboo Stamps and 3 Girl Jam.

Well, that's it for today and  I hope you enjoyed my creation and if you have a minute drop me a little comment. I love hearing from you, too, because you're my inspiration!

Until next time, take care and God Bless

Cards With More Than One Fold

I'm baaaackkk!!!  ; )  Hello there, it's that time again to post another of my creations for The Crafty Pad.  I made a card using three folds and added a beautiful Butterfly and a Dahlia to my card front.  So three folds for my card and many, many more folds to make the Dahlia.  So here goes..........

The Butterfly is from a digi set at Crafty Pad and comes with a very lovely sentiment.  Of course, it can't be read, so I will post it on here also.

Butterflies are beautiful things-
So colorful with delicate wings.
Fluttering to each bloom so bright,
It’s wonderful to see them in their flight.
They silently go along the way –
So take the time to watch one day.

Our Super Duper sponsor this week is
monthly sponsor starting  18th April
and giving a fabby prize of
£10.00 to spend in her fabby online store
So get your creations entered and leave some comments and "YOU" could be the winner!!
I hope you've enjoyed my creation and thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon as I enjoy your visits.

Best Wishes

I post a card weekly for LINK UP FOR PINK because it's for such a super fantastic cause.
This card is titled Best Wishes as I do want to wish the best for all going through different phases of Breast Cancer.  I hope you like my card because it's just for you.

The stamp set I used is named "ALL ABOUT HER", 'Moulin Divas Tre's Chic'.  The image was colored with Copic Markers, the flourishes were from the Spellbinder die set named Floral Flourishes, the paper, ribbon, and stones are from my stash bought at Michael's at one time or another.
Well, that wraps it up for this week and I'll see you again on June 28th.  I hope you come to visit with me then as I enjoy our visits tremendously.

But do visit daily to see the gorgeous creations being made by the other Design Team members.

But most of all, CHALLENGE 3 has started and it's time to get your fabby creations in to win some really terrific prizes from some Super, Awesome Sponsors.
Until then, take care and God Bless,

Happy Father's Day

Hi again, Blogger and Scrapper Friends, I hope all is going well with you.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peak, [or to take a good look, wooo hooo, ;)]  and hope you come by often as I am so happy to have you visit.

I am posting my creation for The Crafty Pad Challenge #174, "Let's Hear It for the Boys" and decided to create something a little different.  So here we go... I hope you like it.  I used a steampunk design for a change in creating my card.

I used the Crafty Pad Image of the Watch and used Rock Candy to give it a little more depth and texture.

And after working a few hours on this one I just couldn't stop there and did the inside with the sentiment written in "Typewriter Font" and used an old typewriter stamp to embellish.

The Crafty Pad is giving away two really awesome, fabby, prizes this week, so get busy in your scrap room and send in your creations for a chance to win.

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge
which means we will have2 lucky prize winners this week!

Hi my friends, I am back with another post "Cheer Up" for LINK UP FOR PINK with a cute little sweetie to help bring on a smile. She is Primrose from Crafty Sentiments Designs and was colored with Copic Markers. I hope she helps to brighten your day.

The "Cheer Up" stamp is from JustRite stamps and the sentiment punches are from Stampin' Up. The butterfly punch is from EK Success and The paper is from K and Company, but from my paper stash from long ago. I knew I was hoarding that paper pack for a reason. : ) And of course the ribbon is from my ribbon stash as well.
So until next time,

Faith, Hope, Love,Courage and Strength

Hi my Blogger and Scrappin' friends.  It's time for another post for LINK UP FOR PINK.

"Hi my name is Vivien and I am from Bugaboo Stamps. "
I created my card using paper from the LUFP DT Package.

My card front sentiment with the hearts are also from the Bugaboo stamp set
Pink Ribbon Gals -Vivien
which is in the "Causes" Category at their store.

The flowers are from Prima and the inside sentiment tag Hugs to You is from the "JustRite Hugs to You Set." The border punched die is by Fiskars and I've had it forever it seems, but was perfect for this card.

I hope all you girls out there start sending in your creations for LINK UP FOR PINK CHALLENGES going on and there are some really fabby prizes being given away from some super duper sponsors. 

The challenge rules are easy, use any design or image, the only requirement is it has to have PINK on it, now that's as easy as it can get.  I will be looking for your creations, so girls, get that mojo flowing!  The last day for your entry for Challenge #2 is June 7th.

So until next time,
Take care and God Bless

This card is being entered in challenge for Tuesday Throwdown - Friendship
