BOO...

BOO
# 383-2014-10
Supplies used : 
Cardstock : Pumpkin Pie and Black
Other : Fall leaves embossing folder, red crayon, Halloween stickers

I cut the cardstock to the desired size and ran the top layer through my embossing folder. Then to give it a little bit of character, I took a red crayon and with the paper taken off the crayon, I layed the crayon on its side and ran it across the embossed image. Then I added the Halloween stickers after attaching the squares. It was a simple card to make for this weeks Mojo Monday card sketch challenge, located at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com. Thank you for stopping by.

Cancer Survivor

I am a Survivor
# 380-2014-10
I am a cancer survivor. It was 12 yrs ago that I was diagnosed with endometriosis and cervical cancer. I ended up having a complete hysterectomy at the age of 32. And by the Grace of God, my cancer has not returned, even though my doctor told me that some day the cancer could still come back and be pelvic cancer next time. I hope and pray that some day they find a cure so that children and adults won't have to go through the pain and suffering of cancer anymore.
**Supplies used :
Cardstock : light grey blank card, pink marble, grey with pink dots, pink and white zig zag.
Other : 5/8 inch pink ribbon (Bow), pink brad, pink ribbon sticker medley (heart, sentiment, cancer ribbons).
I am using this card in this weeks Freshly Made Sketches # 157 card sketch challenge located at http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com. I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog and I thank you for stopping by.

Think Pink...Survivor

Think Pink...Survivor
# 379-2014-10
As I am a cancer survivor myself, I thought this weeks mojo monday card sketch challenge was perfect for making this card. It was 12 yrs ago that I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and endometriosis. I ended up having a complete hysterectomy at the age of 32. Luckily, with the grace of God and having a good doctor, I no longer have cancer. However, there is still a chance that the cancer can come back some day and be in my pelvic area this time. I pray every day that the cancer stays away and does not come back and that they find a cure for those who are still suffering from cancer.

**Supplies used for my card are :
Cardstock : Light grey pre-folded blank card, pink marble cardstock, white cardstock, Snap color vibe paper pack from Simple Stories (zig zag paper), Dots & Stripes paper pad (grey with pink dots paper).
Sentiments : Pink Power stamp set, Believe stamp set
Extras : pink 5/8 inch ribbon, butterfly punch, grey 5/8 inch ribbon, pink scalloped border punch, music sheet embossing folder, dots embossing folder, pink brads, double-sided adhesive mounting circles.

Trick or Treat...



Trick or Treat
# 377-2014-10
Just 4 more weeks until it is Halloween....I hope that everyone will stay safe as they go to their Halloween festivities.
For this card, I used a black pre-folded blank cardstock. Since this weeks card sketch challenge called for a 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 tall and skinny card, all I did was take the pre-folded card and measured it across to the 3 1/2 inch mark and then I just simply cut it down to size. For the front of my card, I used an orange and white striped cardstock. Then I used and orange with white dots at the top. And even though the Mojo Monday design called for 3 banners, I only used 2. These 2 banners are cut from some 5/8 inch Halloween ribbons. And to add a little extra to my card, I added a black circle behind my Trick or Treat bag and then I used 3 foam fall leaves with a black 1/4 inch ribbon for the bow, which is attached by an orange brad.

Thanksgiving Turkey...

Thanksgiving Turkey...Eat Ham
#376-2014-10
Well, the month of October is officially upon us, and this is my first card made for the month of October. This year is sure going by fast!!
For this card, I used a chocolate brown pre-folded blank card. For the front, I used a stampin' up paper piercing tool to put holes around the edge of a pearl white cardstock to have as a background. The brown with white dots and the orange zig zag papers are from the Snap color vibe 6x6 paper pad by Simple Stories collection. For my circles, I used the Circles #2 die cut (white circle) in front of a chocolate brown scalloped circle. The 2 fall leaves are foam leaves which has a 1/4 inch chocolate brown ribbon for the bow. The turkey is a clear rubber cling stamp. The final touch was adding 3 orange gems to the top.
