And the winner is….

Thanks so much to all of you who took part in my Gina K Make a Wish blog prize entries. WOW! I was so inspired reading all the wonderful things you all were doing! So many people going through hard times too. Sometimes it is so easy to feel so alone in it…I’m sure all the wonderful things that everyone was doing to help out, make someone’s day or just showing you cared really made a difference. I wish I could give you all the stamp set. You are ALL winners. Unfortunately…I only have one. And so, I used the www.random.org number generator to pick a winner. The winning number was number 46… Catherine. Congratulations Catherine! Please e-mail me with your address and I’ll get this in the mail for you as soon as I can! Catherine wrote…


HAPPY 18 ANNIVERSARY :D! The nice thing that I did today, was make a meal that would last my parents a few meals and so my mom could focus on getting some rest and getting my father back up on his feet. Thanksgiving weekend my dad had a heart attack, one of his arteries on the back of his heart was clogged 99% and so he had a balloon thing done and also a stint put in. He is at home recovering, but felt they needed help in terms of meals :)!
Thanks for this chance at a great stamp set :), have a super day :)!

I wish you all a great evening! It has been another one of those days! A car had to be dropped off at the garage this morning, some major details sorted out pertaining to the renovation. I’m so excited that my stamping room is back on plan for this addition. It had been relegated to addition phase two but now what was going to be storage is now big enough to hold a small 8×8 foot space. It will be in the new basement but….it will be ALL MINE! So I’m pretty excited!


Pink! Today’s color challenge in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month was to use pink. And use it I did! Lots and lots of pink! I was pretty excited with this challenge because it worked perfectly with the design and blog post I wanted to do today! I wanted to one…make this little gift set for my Mother-in-law and two….tell you about a cool card auction with the full proceeds from this auction will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to further research toward a cure. And so…..

I’ll tell you about the auction first. The My Favorite Things Stamps Design Team wanted to do something special this year to help raise money for Breast Cancer research. Kim released the darling Think Pink stamp set with proceeds going to the same foundation. We decided to do our part too. πŸ™‚ Eighteen original hand crafted and signed cards with envelopes by the My Favorite Things designers are up for bid on eBay. I’m so excited to be part of this and can’t wait to see how much money is raised for this great cause. And so… you really need to check it out…

Think Pink Set


I picked up these three little white post-it note pads at my local Business Depot store. The have a pink bottom band and on the pads, is printed a pink ribbon. I thought of my Mother-in-law and thought she would appreciate having them. She just finished radiation therapy at the end of August and I decided to make this into a little gift set for her.

Lots of pink today for this pink challenge so I went searching for some of my favorite Baby Girl Daisy D’s paper. To make a band to go around the three pads, I stitched the striped pink paper to my Pretty in Pink cardstock. Some wide satin May Arts ribbon wraps around the band and ties on a darling little tag. I decorated my tag punched tag with a pretty Prima flower that is set with a brad holding a pink gingham awareness ribbon.


For my matching mini card, I once again stitched on a Daisy D’s paper layer and stamped a ribbon heart and Believe from my Think Pink stamp set. Also using the set to create an image, I colored it in with my Copic markers, matted it and adhere to my design. I got some new Making Memories goodies in the mail today. A darling little flower brad decorates the top left corner of the design. Very simple, very pink and oh so cute. Hope it is OK to say that. I hope she likes it as much as I do. πŸ™‚

Make sure you check back in later tonight as I’ll be announcing the winner of that great Make a Wish Stamp set from Gina K. πŸ™‚
