Just wanted to say that I am amazed at the cards rolling in. And not just for Kate, but also for Eric! That makes me so happy! I will be working on sorting through them tomorrow – it is a big task. And, you are not too late to send them in! Just try to get them here by the end of October. We have 90 awesome prizes waiting to be won. 🙂
And, I got a message from Kate's grandma and mom. They both told me how much the family appreciates everything we are doing for them. (I plan to share their emails here… just want to get their permission first.) So… for all of you who sent cards – you should feel really good knowing you helped someone miles away.
Thought I would share some other random things I have made lately.
This one uses a stamp set from one of the companies who donated a prize for the card drive – iheartpapers.com. They have their own line of cute clear stamps HERE. I got a kick out of THIS stamp set and I used it to create this card for Audrey. I think she will love it – we are always having to fight off mosquitoes in the summer – they love us. Also, the background is a Hero Arts border swirl – a must-have new stamp – find it HERE.
Supplies: iheartstamps.com stamps except the background swirl which is Hero Arts, Copic Markers, Corner Chomper, Hero Arts flat metallic thingies, May Arts silk ribbon, glitter pen (for the wings), Colorbox chalk ink
Great news: Looks like TONS of new Hero Arts stamps are 20% off HERE. Go get 'em while they last.
Since I shared a card I made for Audrey, I thought I would show one I gave to Kay. This one also answers a question I get from lots of people: "What do you do with all the accents you make for your article in Creating Keepsakes?" Well, I turn a lot of them into cards for the girls. Here is one that I did just that – threw it on a card that was stamped with the same stamp as above.
Anyone doing anything nice for the weekend? We are going to pick apples tomorrow. Colin is so excited. Praying it isn't too cold!
