National Card Making Day!

I am good or what? I took some time yesterday to make some cards. I had no idea it was National Card Making Day until I went on the message boards last night. This is my design for this years Christmas card. It is extremely simple, but sometimes simple works. This idea came to me this summer with the idea of using a sentiment that wished warm wishes. (Get it - warm? LOL) Well, I was at the Scrap Expo in August and came across a stamp that read Warm Winter Wishes - it was meant to be!!

This card is for my new card patient. I written before about being a card angel at My past patient went into remission and graduated from the program. My new patient is an 11 year old girl that has a brain tumor. If you would like to experience the unbreakable spirit of this girl, please visit her journal on Type in emilywilson. This little girl has an outlook on life that we could all learn from. She always includes a joke or riddle in her journal entry, so I like to send her a card filled with jokes. This card includes dog jokes. What kind of dog does dracula own? A Bloodhound! LOL

This next card is a thank you that I made for some of the ladies that attended our ScrapPink event. The inside reads - Thanks for saving the Hooters! I have to admit that I lifted the idea from Archivers, but put my own spin on it. The owl is from the Happily Ever After cricut cartridge. It is hard to see, but I stamped a ribbon on her chest with versamark. I think that she turned out adorable.

I even got a layout done! I love these pictures. Before my kids were in school we would take pictures in November (between the October and December birthdays). Once the school pictures started we went less for the "family" shoots. I think it is time to make an appointment for pictures. :)

Well, this past weekend my friend Gina and I held our ScrapPink Event and I must say it was a huge success. We had 15 people attend and raised $1,170 for the Susan G. Komen foundation!!! A great time was had by all. We had tons of food, raffle prizes, goodie boxes and lots of fun! We had over 60 raffle prizes donated by local retailers, some of our guests and some scrapbooking vendors. We hope to make this an annual event!
