Pink Hope at Paper Makeup Stamps

Coffee of the Day - Butter Rum

Several things in the post today, including the winner of my blog candy, so be sure to read through.....

First I will go ahead and announce the blog candy winner. I was smiling so so big when I saw who our Mr. blue froggy friend chose as the winner! She is such a dear friend of mine, and I can picture her reading The Secret Garden with her grand-daughter, Jade.  Stef, congratulations! send me an email with your address so I can get your goodies right out to you!

Thank you to everyone who entered! You know me, and I'll be doing another blog candy again soon!

Next up is my card for the new challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps - favorite color. well y'all are gonna strain yourselves trying to figure out mine, I'm sure! ha! yep, my card is loaded for bear with PINK!!! I made another card for the chemo patient card box I have set up at my oncologist's office. I do hope to have quite a few to take when I go in for my next appt.

I used the Hope Silhouette Fairy from the Breast Cancer Awareness digi set. Both the main image and the matted die cut were sprayed with Cadillac Pink glimmer mist. papers are Basic Grey Knee Highs, felt roses are made with the MFT mini rolled roses die, the metal tag is stamped with the word, 'hope'. the edges of the main image were coated with spun sugar distress stickles. some faux stitching, a pretty pearl button, and a bit of lace trim complete the card. Hopefully this will bring a smile or comfort to someone going through chemo treatments. I sure remember only too well how rough those days were.

Enjoy your day!
