Card Drive for Lauryn with Paper Smooches

I heard about Lauryn through Lisa from The Purple Place. You can read about Lauryn HERE. today is a blog hop taking place for her and I am not officially part of it, but wanted to make a card for her and show it at the day of the hop. Please visit The Purple Place for the hop details. 


Lauryn was diagnosed with Leukemia Thursday, March 27th. She has been in the hospital since her diagnosis and will remain there having chemo treatments. Please pray for this sweet little girl and her dear family. Lauryn has two siblings that she just adores! Updates can be found via their Facebook page HERE.

I hope this card cheers her up!  I took the inspiration from this weeks Paper Smooches challenge, see the inspiration picture below:

I cut the banners and hung them onto Bakers Twine. All stamps are Paper Smooches from the set Chubby Chums.
And guess what? I used a lot of snippets for this card - it goes into the Snippets Playground!
And if you want to send a card to Lauryn, here is the address:

Children's National
Hematology/ Oncology RM 437
Lauryn Newsome

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
