Normally this time of year I am floating around a room filled with women raising money for Breast Cancer research. This year marks the Sixth Year of Stampin' for a Cure in Colorado Springs, Co. My team of demonstrators as well as a few not on my team gather together and work hard to come up with projects, silent auctions, and much much more to make this day the best that it can be. This is the first one I am missing. It feels very strange not being there but I am confident they are doing an outstanding job. I've skyped in once today to see all the fun they are having. Tried not to cry as I miss them all so much. I could hear the excitement in the background and could see blurry smiles on the faces of both customers and demonstrators. That makes my heart pound. Due to our circumstances with the Prince away, I thought it would be best not to travel. There will be many more. I also plan to start a Stampin' for a Cure event here in my local area. The only reason I didn't do it this year was because I spent 6 months feeling sorry for myself. Once I found Kimberly again it was a little late to get it going. No worries, next year will be great.
October 1st is also World Card Making day. It's a day to create until your fingers cramp. Here are a few pieces of inspiration for you.
This card uses the cute stamp set called Out on a Limb (#123824). I also used the Pick Your Poison DSP #(124001). Fun card for Halloween. My favorite image besides the witch are the clouds. Super cute.
This card is a beauty. Plus it has a Faux Metal Technique that was used with the witches boots. The added toole just makes it sassy vintage. Lots of stamp sets on this card: Teeny Tiny Wishes(#115370), Wicked Cool (#120600), Piece of Poison (#123754). Also used on this card is the First Edition Specialty (#121878).
You can find all these fantastic products in my spooky Online Store. Enjoy World Card Making day and I hope to update you later with how the Stampin' for a Cure event is going.
