Fight Like a Girl
Well, Eric and I are in the midst of a "Night Owl Sleepover Birthday Party" for our newest 9 year old, Audrie. Be jealous. I have 6 screaming little girls over here and two 11 year-olds trying to help me keep them under control. Tomorrow's forecast: more sugar. Luckily, I still managed to sneak in an hour or so to make this card for the
Hop for Hope Blog Hop!
The new Fight Like a Girl stamp set retails for $15.00 and Karen is donating $3.00 from each sale towards cancer research.
The set's main image is two precious Fhiona friends supporting each other and holding the symbol of hope--a ribbon loop that could actually be for any type of cause depending on what color you make it. I wish I could have used that image, but I didn't have a chance to finish coloring it in with all my party preparations this week! So I went with something simple using what is almost one of my favorite sentiments for fighting breast cancer--"FIGHT LIKE A GIRL!" I'd say the best ever, though, is "Save Second Base"(which isn't included this time. Phooey.). I loved layering the sentiment up with some tulle, ribbon, lots of bling and letting it steal the show! Girly!!
Now it’s time to hop on over to my pal, Jenny P.'s blog Thank you so much for joining us for this special hop, and don’t forget that by purchasing this adorable set, you are helping to find a cure for this terrible disease!
SUSIE Q-TIP: If ya'll follow my blog or even stop by occasionally, ya'll will notice I like, no love, the look of a flag-ended sentiment or panel on my cards. It just makes it fresh and adds a little more detail than a plain rectangle would have. When I cut them, I just eyeball it and cut from the tip at an angle to the center. One of my besties, Cherie shared another even easier way to do it the other day at Scrapper's, especially if you're not an eyeballer. She makes a cut from the middle vertically in the center of the sentiment or panel, then cuts the "tails" from the corners to the end of that cut. Genius!
