Happy Thoughts....

... and I hope that is what you have when you come by to visit to see the creations I have done for Link Up for Pink.  I was wondering what I would have for an inspiration and when I looked out of the window of my Scrap Room and there were the Hummingbirds making a fuss by the feeder.  They definitely don't like sharing. :-)   So here we go!

My daughter and I are in the process of moving and when I walked into the scrap room lo' and behold she has most of it packed! LOL  So I gathered up the birdhouse stamp from Heartfelt, a few sheets of cardstock from my stash, a little bling out of my drawer and a Stampin' Up punch for the sentiment.  Oh, the sentiment is from CTMH.  The coloring was done with my Copic Markers. 

 I will tell you, the Scrap Room has more stuff to be packed then the whole house!!  LOL  But our new Scrap room with be much larger and really organized (I hope) so we can actually see what we have.  Some things just get put aside and then one day you happen to see it while searching for something else and say, Oh, Wow, I really could have used this last week or last month.  LOL  So our move is planned for approximately the middle of June and then after we get settled in I will post pictures of our new scrapping habitat.  Hope all works out as planned.

Now for some really great news: 

Challenge 13 is now going on and you need to get your creations entered to help support those battling for their lives with Breast Cancer and by joining in you can win some fabby prizes from our very generous sponsors.
LoveBug is giving away a $15 voucher to their shop.

SK digis will give away Four $6 vouchers.


There will be four winners;

One person will win the $15 voucher and $6 voucher. 

Three other winners will each win a $6 voucher.

Now that is some A-W-E-S-O-M-E prizes.  So hurry and get you stuff in and good luck.

Well, that's about it for now,

So until next time
Take Care and God Bless.

Best Wishes

.  I am posting my card for Link Up for Pink sending Best Wishes to everyone, especially to my "Special Friends" who are fighting the battle of Breast Cancer.  I hope you enjoy my card and it brings a smile.

Some time was put into this card.  I was in a creating mood, more so than usual, so I decided I would get out some die cuts and embossing folders and go through my stash and get some "stuff" together and make a really "fancy" card.  ;)

For all the "ingredients" visit my blog:

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I did creating it and if you did, please leave some love.  Remember you are my inspiration. 

We have a new Link Up for Pink Challenge #13 starting up in a few days on May 23rd.  I hope all of the scrappers out there get their "stuff" together and get your projects or cards posted here.  Remember, you are supporting those fighting for their life because of Breast Cancer and also, we have some really generous, awesome sponsors,  SK Digis and Lovebug Creations donating some great prizes for the winner of the challenge.  What more can I say except it's going to be awesome!!!

That's it for now,

so until next time
take care and God Bless.

Thinking of You

Are you good at letting your friends know you care about them?

Being someone's friend means doing more than just thinking about them -- you need to let them know you are doing it. Pick up the phone, write the email or better yet, send them a handmade card!

Loved ones and friends that you have will always love a note from you that lets then know you care. Even if they are not sick, going through struggles, or down on their luck, people enjoy knowing that someone is thinking about them and cares for them, and this is especially true for someone going through cancer treatments.

Make someone else’s day by sending them a thinking of you card. It only takes a moment, but the effect is instant and lasting.

Supplies used: card stock - vanilla; patterned papers from Stella & Rose and Wild Asparagus both by My Minds Eye; Sentimentals Cricut cartridge; rub 0n - American Crafts; ink - Rich Cocoa by Memento; ribbon - JoAnn's; pearls - Kaiser Craft; Pop Dots
