Hope

 Hi friends,
 I spent part of Saturday (World Cardmaking Day) making a mess in Studio K! Being that it's Breast Cancer Awareness month & there are loads of card drives going on, I thought I should make as many as I could get done. As I've said in the past, this is a cause that's near & dear to my heart because my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 7 years old. She beat it thanks in part to early detection. My godmother who was also diagnosed, was not so fortunate. She passed away at 32 years old, leaving behind 3 young sons...

I settled on this design:
 Since I was making several, I needed something simple but pretty. I used PTI's Fanciful Flourishes & stamped it with the Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder. Then I added Prisma glitter because it's super sparkly. I like using the sticky powder because it really holds on to the glitter. I die cut the butterflies from vellum & added a pink ribbon on the body. Last, I stamped the sentiment from the Hope stamp set from Taylored Expressions.

Here's a closer peek at the sparkle:
Zombies aren't as scary as my photog skills! these cards came out so pretty (in my humble opinion :) and I hope they bring the recipients exactly that... HOPE.
 I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

Hope you had some crafty time this weekend! Now, to get ready for the week :(
Tootles!
