You are Beautiful!!

Yes, bald is beautiful.  You do not need hair to be the most beautiful, lovable, kindhearted, sincere, God loving person.  So I did this card just for all of you going through Chemo or who have completed their treatments.  I hope you enjoy and she brings a smile to your face.

This little lady was given to us at Link Up for Pink by Sherri Baldy over at Scrapbook Stamp Society.  I think it's an awesome image and want to thank her for sharing this image so we could create a card for you.
You can check her store and see if she is for sale as she didn't have a name when we received it.  I just think she is so precious.

Good News???


Hi, this Link Up for Pink card is for all the survivors who have won the battle.  I wish everyone would get that great news because a cure has been found.  I thought my card would be a great celebration card.  I hope you enjoy it.

A little info now on what I used.  My background patterned papers are from Close to My Heart, the striped being from "Dotty for You", and the flowered from my most favorite pack "Mayberry". Mayberry is retired now, but I made sure I had quite a supply on hand before it was gone for good.  It's just a happy paper pack, cheerful, and just fun to use.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The die cuts are Spellbinders Ovals.  The cute stamps I used are from Stamps of Life, "Owls2Love" and is a really awesome stamp set.  It also has some really cute sentiments to complete your card.

So all the Scrappers out in blogland get your scrappin' started and enter your creation in
I hope and pray that everyone fighting the battle can say soon they have won because a cure has been found.

Dream... something we all need to do. It's helps tremendously. The back is better and the shoulder is almost there.... woo hoo. However, I will just dream that from now on that I can do some things that I did when I was younger. ; ) So with things on the mend I am back to being able to scrap, oh, how I missed it.

 Here is my creation for Link Up for Pink and I hope you enjoy.

The Patterned paper I used is from Echo Park 6x6 paper pad "Country Drive." The image is from Digi Darla, "Butterfly Surprise" and colored with my Copic Markers and I think it is just an adorable image and I paper pierced around the die cut. The "Dream" embellishment is from Recollections.

So that is my creation for today and I will be posting more often now that my shoulder is cooperating.
The winner of Challenge #8 was:
#5 - Janice
Congratulations on your win!!!
WOW!! You won 4 digital images from Sassy Studio Designs our very generous and awesome sponsor!

Live Life To The Fullest

A lesson that having cancer gave to me is that every day is precious!!!!

I think a good mantra for anyone, especially a cancer patient is to "Live Life To The Fullest".
Each day we are here on this earth is a gift and we should make the absolute MOST of it.

I really wanted the sentiment to be the focus of this card, so I made it a CAS card and added very little besides the sentiment. I simply did some dry embossing around the edge of the card and added a few rhinestones.

Supplies used: Card stock - white; stamp - Word Flourishes by Rhonna Farrar for Autumn Leaves; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; dry embossing template - Martha Stewart; rhinestones - Kaiser Craft.

Best Wishes

I am sorry for not having my Link Up for Pink DT member card posted on time, but unfortunately I had a bad back and shoulder ache. Yes, my daughter and I decided to move our Scraproom from the second floor to downstairs and after hauling 38 cubes plus all the scraping goodies and being uh..... 72?, you would think I would have learned by now that I need to limit somewhat what I do. Yeah, right.... LOL Anyway, I am doing better after quite a few Chiro visits and I am sure in a few more weeks I will be as good as new... well, as good as second hand at my age. :) So with all that being said, here is my card wishing each and everyone Best Wishes for a Happy New Year. I hope and pray this will be the year a cure is found.

Here is my creation and I hope you enjoy.

All of the paper used is from a paper pack I purchased at Michael's a good while back, an 8x8 pack named Mambi for Breast Cancer. The adorable stamped image is from Sassy Studio Designs, Pink Ribbon Frame and is an awesome image for my project and all coloring is done with my Copic markers. Thanks to Sassy Studio for being our sponsor for Challenge 8, you're fabulous!

This challenge ends on January 10th, so you still have some days to get your entry in to win free digis from Sassy Studio Designs.

Someone dear to me is going through some health issues and I hope this card lifts her up a bit. ♥  I used the scripture Deuteronomy 31:6 beautifully designed by Paper Makeup Stamps
