Be Strong


I decided to take a bit of a break on the Halloween treat packages (I was eating way WAY too much chocolate), and instead make a card on the feminine side.  Also, it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I hadn't yet made any cards.

I wanted my card to focus on strength and hope and courage.  And I found a good stamp set for that.

The sentiment is from a Unity / Donna Downey stamp set, "Empowered Words".  I think all the stamps in this set are very uplifting!

The ribbon is from 3GirlJam and is a special holiday edition, "Seasons Bundle".  I really like the swirls of different colors.

At the top corner, I tied a bow and then made a little ribbon rose, backing it with a bit of brown/white twine, and popping a little pearl in the center.

Here's a close-up of the ribbon rose at the top:

 


I'm linking this up with the Paper Issue challenge, "Believe in Yourself".  I think it fits, don't you?

Until Next Time!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
