How Delightful...

Woot Woot for Wednesday...half way through the work week...countin' down to the weekend!

I worked on a couple fun challenges...first up is this 'delightful' card:


The image is by Memory Box, shamefully I've had it for over a year and hadn't inked it up yet...it was perfect for the Embellish Color and Paper Piecing Challenge:


I used PTI Kraft, Stampin' Up So Saffron and Amy Butler papers. The How Delightful is from the Lawn Fawn. The seam binding tape was out of my scrap pile:)

Next up is a layout...I haven't scrapped in awhile...

Sorry for the icky pic...blues always throw off my pics...

The orange papers are from Echo Park Papers Halloween line...the blue paper is Pink Paislee..every paper panel has been stitched and hmmm....perhaps the glitter frame {maya road nakey chippie that I covered with Martha glitter} might be viewed as girlie but you know what? I don't care:) It adds some nice zing to the layout...the flair is actually MM...it's a brad...

I was thoroughly inspired by Teacher Jessy's
current friendly challenge, this is the inspiration photo...I LOVE it:


I used sketch 205 over at Pencil Lines:

So have you had a chance to view all the fabbie cards for the Skipping Stones Designs 1st Annual Blogs 4 Boobies Blog Bounce {hop}...every card that is a part of the Bounce is up for a Silent Auction...all funds raised will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Here's my card:

The current high bid is (edited!!!) $20 by the oh-so-fabbie Julie Tucker-Wolek...woot woot sista!!!

I know that you all aren't opposed to some...added bonus if you are the highest bidder of my card....I'm adding this to the card:


Not only that...I'll MATCH the winning bid....come on ladies...do it for someone you love...do it for someone that is currently fighting breast cancer...do if for a survivor of breast cancer.....I'm doing it in Memory of my Aunt.

If you're interested in making a bid....pop over to my original blog post HERE...please don't leave a bid on this post...you'll need to go to my original post HERE.

Another way you can help in the fundraising efforts is to spread the word....the Bounce silent auction runs until Thursday @ 8 pm Mountain time....the $2 per stamp set donation will run through Thursday until midnight.

Just a reminder to pop over to the E.A.D Designs blog to see Jenn's

  7. What a great card and that image by memory box makes a cute scene. I have a ton of stamps in my stash that I keep saying that I'm going to ink up, but no they just sit there looking pretty on the shelf.

    Have a great day!
    You fellow stamp hoarder,
