Giveaway, card share and more Card Drive info…

So much to say!

I had a rough day with lots of bumps in the road.  And potholes.  Ever have one of those?  Well, I am going to make it all better right here and right now.  With a giveaway.

I ended up with some extra holiday goodies.  This includes good stuff from Making Memories, K&Company and EK Success – great stuff.  As I have been doing lately, I picked a lucky winner from a comment from a previous post.  (As a thank you for taking the time to leave me comments!)  And, the lucky winner is… Deneen!  I will email you.

Ok!  Time for some sharing.  Here is a project I did for 2Peas.  I just adore using huge photos.  And, matching it up with some huge pieces quickly and easily cut with my Silhouette?  Even better.  Yes, my addiction to my Silhouette is getting very intense.  In fact, I just moved everything in my scrapbook room so that I have the perfect place to have my Silhouette out and ready to use.  Lots. :)  Click on the layout for a better view…

I have been getting some questions about the Card Drive for Kids.  Most of them are answered in the details – just read all of my (overly wordy) info on THIS post. :)  But, to answer a few common ones:  Yes, you can send holiday cards, but please have them here by the 15th.  Also, if you have a prize you want to donate, that is great!  Just email me and we can figure it out.  And, yes, please share all the info about the Card Drive on your blog or Facebook page or anywhere – the more the word gets out the better.  Finally… if you aren't a cardmaker, no problem!  Hallmark works too. πŸ™‚

Another question I get a lot is if I know Kate personally.  Nope.  Not at all.  I found out about her on Twitter and just felt a need to reach out.

A quick note: If you emailed me about an ill child you know who you think would be good for the Card Drive but is not yet included, please email me.  I lost a folder of emails a couple weeks ago and fear I missed someone.  Thanks!

Also!  Did you see Kate on Dr. Phil today?  I am so proud of her and her family.  They are battling such a terrible battle, but are so brave and strong in doing so.  If you missed it, check it out HERE.

Random note: Anyone watch House?  If so, are you tired of Cuddy's inappropriate outfits?  Oh my.  I don't think I could think much less practice medicine in those tight clothes. πŸ™‚

  1. Jennifer thank you so much you are always so very generous! I just finished watching the Dr. Phil show and of course shed a few tears too even though I already knew her story and have been praying for her. And I could not agree more about Cuddy’s outfits just plain looks uncomfortable.

  2. Congrats to the winner!

    I missed out on the last card drives and I’m so excited you’re doing it again. Thanks so much for all you do. I love all of your videos from Two Peas. You’ve made me want everything Perfect Pearls and Distress Inks. πŸ™‚


  3. It seems it’s less about Cuddy and more about her boobs. Ack. And we segue to….card drives! I’ve been so focused on making cards for OWH; it might be nice to switch gears and make fun kid cards!

  4. My bumpy, pothole filled day was yesterday. I guess that means today was better!!
    Hope your tomorrow is better too.

  5. Thanks for sharing the link to Dr Phil show. I’ve been following their story and amazed at their courage and strength. I’m sorry to hear you’ve had a bumpy day – tomorrow will be better!

  6. Great idea with the giant picture as the focus of a page. I’m going to make an entire album like this with only my favorite pics! A terrible day almost always means the next day has to be better.

  7. I’m sorry to hear that you had a more than rough day. I’ll keep you in my prayers. Today was my day to worry about my two kids being mildy sick – my two year old had a fever and my five year old has asthma that’s been acting up. I sat with my 2 year old for most of the day on the couch because that’s all she wanted. Thank you for all the generosity you show towards your blog readers and the time and effort you put into the Card Drives. I don’t know how you do it all. Your layout is wonderful. The colors in the picture are amazing. And House is a recent addiction for me. I can’t believe how tight and low cut Cuddy’s outfits are!

  8. Jennifer,

    Your day will be better today!! Oh I missed Dr. Phil today :o(. Thank you for all your cards and inspiration.

  9. Hope your day is better today. Have always wanted a Silhouette. Your beautiful layout has just convinced me it’s time.

  10. Sorry to hear of your ‘bumpy road’ day! Seems I’ve had too many of those lately myself! I suppose a few of those help us appreciate those that are smooth even more!

    And, um, yeah!! Cuddy is becoming a little much. I work in the medical field and, um, no, that’s not how the women in medicine dress.

  11. I’ve noticed that about Cuddy too, Jennifer. Amazing that the doctors can keep hteir mind on their work when she’s around. Only on TV, huh?
    Great page! I love to see your work with the Silhouette.

  12. Yes, I watched Dr. Phil yesterday. Bawled at the end. Can’t imagine what they are going through. Thank you very much for sharing Kate’s story with us. I most likely would not have known about her otherwise. I still pray for them every day and feel close to them in spirit. Hope your road today is smooth. Yes, we watch House and have never been able to believe that any Hospital Director would wear what she does.

  13. Wow! Fabulous layout, Jennifer! Love it! You’re getting my excited about my Sil!! How many days til Christmas? πŸ™‚
    I’ve got 4 boy cards made for the card drive… will see if I can get some girl ones made today and send them all out tomorrow. Hopefully they get there in time for Christmas. πŸ™‚

  14. you might have answered this already previously but for silhouette cutouts that are really intricate, what do you use to stick them without making a mess? thanks. πŸ™‚

  15. Love your layout. Sometimes one picture says everything you want to remember and scrap. I feel for Kate and her family. My oldest son was very sick when born but nothing like what she is going through. Have a wonderful day!

  16. Missed the show, but I click on the link! Thanks for being so generous to these kids and their family! It feels really good making cards for them!

  17. Great LO. I saw this on 2peas, love it! Thanks for doing another card drive! I’m sure it means so much to these children.

  18. Hi Jennifer! You’re layout is lovely.
    As you, I saw the Dr. Phil show & commented on my blog. It was moving that in the midst of this life altering challenge the entire McCrae family is such a beacon of light.
    Thanks for shedding light on their story & so many others. You are such a special person.
    Continued success & all the best!
    God Bless.

    Great happy colors in your layout. I am using my Silhouette more too.
    I purchased lots of cut files on black Friday. They had them reduces
    to 1.00 each. I think you can do so many things.

    Yes, I did watch Dr. Phil. It was very tearful for me. I pray life
    is better for them in 2010.

    Thanks for sharing so much of you with us.

  20. We do watch House… Cuddy’s clothes are always interesting but not professional. Well, not professional for a doctor. ha ha. (nasty remark as I do like the character.)

    Hope you have a much better day today.

  21. This is an absolutely gorgeous layout and photo–how wonderful to have a memory and memento like this!

    Thanks for sharing the Kate link too.

  22. Great layout. I have wanted to participate in the Card drive, but have had no time. I’m on vacation soon so will make sure to send in some cards. I don’t have a Silhouette, I have a Cricut Expression. Is it similar? Do you think I should invest in a Silhouette?

  23. I love your work and blog Jennifer, but I also love Cuddy’s outfits!!!! Yes, they are extremely inappropriate! I’m much more amazed that she walk around in those high heels all day (yes I know it’s not real)!

  24. Ahh…looks like it was a beautiful day in Bermuda. Great LO.
    Cuddy’t outfits are one of the reason my husband will actually watch House with me. It is one of my favorite shows and I LOVE how the last episode ended.

  25. Great page Jennifer! Thanks for sharing. πŸ˜‰

    I totally agree with you about Cuddy’s outfits…could we possibly see anymore of her chest?? Lol…

  26. House – you gotta love that series, even with Cuddy’s faux pas outfits! And you are an inspiration to us all to reach out and touch someone else’s lives – even with with something as simple as a kind word or card.

  27. Love the page – thanks so much for sharing! I can relate about your rough day – my yesterday was filled with major potholes but here’s hoping that today will be better (and that my 15year old learns to make better choices….)

  28. That page – that picture! Spectacular. Hey, here’s my analogy about the bumps and potholes…keep your eyes on the road ahead, and you will get past those. I’m ready for a good holiday season and a fantastic 2010 πŸ™‚

  29. Geez, Cuddy just gets on my nerves. I understand she’s conflicted about House, but man, make a decision already! *Yes, I know that would defeat the purpose of the show, but STILL! LOL* Those outfits are crazy, but none top the strip-tease undies in the finale a couple years ago! LOL
    Hope you have a better day!

  30. What an awesome giveaway!! Hope all is well and better soon!! What a great idea to have another card drive. It is wonderful that you can help to spread cheer with cards!!

  31. Congratulations on the article in the New York Times today! The photo was very nice and so was the article. I was so excited to see someone that I “know” from blog land in today’s newspaper. Congratulations again!

  32. Congrats, Dineen – cool prize!

    I have been drooling over my friend’s Silhouette. Big one on my Christmas list! And love your layout.

  33. what a wonderful LO Jennifer. Loved the photo and the large font!!! It is a wonderful day πŸ™‚

    The more I read your blog the more I realize what a wonderful person you are! So giving that even on a bad day you try to bright it up with a give away πŸ™‚
