Gum Ball Fun- Card Angel Program

Hi friends,
I have a card to share with you today I had so much fun playing with. Well, I had fun with the image :)
Here's my card: (2 pics 'cause I didn't know which was better :(
 It was the first inking of this cute stamp set by SU! called Something Sweet. Such a fun & versatile little set. For the gum balls, I decided to use dew drops. I stamped the sentiment directly on the ribbon & tied the ends so it looked like a candy wrapper itself. (Don't know why it's so blurry- not like that IRL???) I added a little highlight with Copic BG10, & added Crystal lacquer to the gum ball stand.

My blog "sister from another Mr." Kathy, shared about being a chemo card angel in this post --->here. I thought it was a brilliant idea & something I definitely wanted to be a part of so I signed up. The goal of the chemo card angel program is to brighten the lives of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy with a weekly card of encouragement.

I was paired up with a young boy, so my mission is to make more boy cards for him. So far I've sent these cards:
I had the first 2 in my small stash of cards, so it wasn't hard to get started. I hope he likes them & that they bring a smile to his face :) If you'd like to join us as a chemo card angel, you can find more info---> here.
Thanks for peeking!

  1. All of them are wonderful. Love the little boy ones.

  2. Super awesome card. I'm always looking for more inspiration to use those dew drops (mind if I post a link on the YMH facebook page?)
    I'm sure all the cards you have made will brighten the little guy's day. What a great program. I know there are a lot of us out there who create cards just for the heck of it and that's a great way to get some use out of them.

  3. Love the gumball card. Stamping on the ribbon and making it look like a wrapped candy is such a cute and creative idea.

  4. How cool is that gumball one! What a great idea. The little boy ones are perfect... each one!

  5. what fun cards and the gumball one is so fun with the color while the space one looks great with the moon and all of its crators.

  6. wonderful cards and cause

  7. The gumball card is AMAZING! Why didn't I think to use dew drops as gumballs? I'm going to case this one for sure. My boys would love to take a card like this to a birthday party. Your angel guy is lucky to have you, so glad you signed up and I'm sure these cards have brightened up his day.

  8. Darling darling darling! I love the gumballs- they really look great! The cards for cancer are all wonderful- you will really touch someone with that project, TFS
