Lung Cancer Awareness

Hi friends. These days I'm sure we all know someone who is battling some form of cancer. I've had family and friends lose the battle, some still fighting and others are survivors. One thing we all have in common is our desire for a cure; in the meantime, we must spread awareness.  This week's Mod Squad Challenge is precisely that, specifically awareness for lung cancer.  They challenge us to make a card using Silver and or Pearl, I've used both on my card.

Since one of the sponsors this week is Melanie Muenchinger, I'm using two of her poinsettias, the large one from A Year of Flowers and the smaller from Holiday Basket.  These are stamped on White Pearl cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail Silver embossing powder. I added a little dab of Spectrum Noir CT3 in the centers.  The oval die cut is made using two Spellbinders dies, Floral Ovals and Petite Ovals, cut from DCWV Silver Glitter Cardstock Matstack.

I'll be sending this card to a very special local news person who revealed she has lung cancer during a live newscast.  Her name is Keylla Hernández from Noticentro, she has asked for prayers and positive vibes to be sent her way while she goes through treatment. 

Hope you like my card and thank you for stopping by. 'Til next time, have a wonderfully creative week.

UPDATE: My card made Top 3. Woohoo!

Hi friends. How quickly time flies, it's been almost a month since my last post.  Well, if you read this tomorrow then it's exactly one month.

November is quite special to me, it's my anniversary month, my birthday, Veterans Day  and Thanksgiving.  Sunday, November 8th, my husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. Tomorrow, November 11th  is not only Veterans Day, but it's also my birthday (no need to say the age, suffice it to say I married when I was 18 -you do the math, LOL!).

I have many reasons to give thanks, but I especially want to give thanks to all the veterans in my family and there are many -you all know who you are- Thanks for all the sacrifices you've made and the many more to come, God bless you all.

Today I'm sharing a Thank You card, my first cascading card.  There are many tutorials to make this card, I found this YouTube tutorial very easy to follow.  I'm entering my card in this week's Mod Squad Challenge.

Materials used:
Ivory cardstock measuring 6 x 8
The Simple Things Pure Luxury Paper by Gina K. Designs
Frame & Sentiment from Flowers & Frames StampTV kit
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Memento Black and Rich Cocoa
Coloring pencils

Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and Blessings
