Monster Mash Blog Hop!






I was working in the lab, l
ate one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, he did the monster mash
It was a graveyard smash!

Welcome, For this weeks challenge we were sponsored by, Bee Cee Artistic Digital Images !

For my project I made this beautiful gift bag,

 
 
 
I had so much fun making this bag! I selected The Flower with/without the frame digital stamp as the image for my gift bag. I colored the Rose and hand cut it out and attached it to A oval diecut  then attached that to the  front of the bag. I  then added the fancy brad and pink ribbon.

Miscarriage and Infant Loss Awareness Month Blog Hop


                       Welcome to the Miscarriage and Infant Loss Awareness Month Blog Hop.
You should have arrived here from Robin's Blog. Today October 15th, is National Miscarriage and Infant loss Awareness Day. This hop was created for those that suffered a devastating loss with the loss of their own child or someone in their life that has an angel baby or lost a child. Here are a few statistics to keep in mind regarding miscarriage and infant loss,


75% of all conceptions end in miscarriage 30% of pregnancies end in miscarriage (1 in 3) 15-20% of confirmed pregnancies end in miscarriage The majority of miscarriages happen in the first trimester Chromosomal Abnormalities are the most common reason for miscarriages and still births 90,000 children die annually before their first birthday Nearly 2,500 babies are lost a year in the US due to SIDS Nearly 30,000 babies are year are born stillborn. This number jumps to 4.5 million worldwide Stillbirth occurs 10 times more frequently than SIDS More babies die as a result of stillbirth than all other causes of infant death a year
The above reference statistics can be found on both of the following websites if you would like to find out more information:
**http://www.hiringforhope.org/pregnancy-infant-loss-awareness.html ** http://miscarriage.about.com/od/riskfactors/a/miscarriage-statistics.html


Too many people in this world grieve in silence over the loss of their children. This hop is ment to CELEBRATE them! You will see many different stories from the wonderful ladies in this hop. Some have themselves loss their beautiful babies, some had family members go through a loss, and some are here to show their support for the women who have gone through it.

How can YOU show your support today? Here are a few examples:

Keep your headlights on all day.
Keep your porch lights on all day.
Wear pink and blue ribbons.
Light a candle and display it in your window.
Release butterflies

The theme for this hop is any project centered around Angels, babies, pink and blue ribbons, condolence cards, tributes, and layouts!

There will be a blog prize from Craftin' and Stampin' from online Close To My Heart store.
The "Your Own Kind Of Wonderful" stamp set is the prize for today's hop. To be eligible, please visit each blog and make sure to comment and follow along the way. Winners will be announced on the Craftin' and Stampin' blog on 10/18/14.



Here is the card I made, I joined this hop because I have a family member who lost a baby to toxemia around the 5th month of her pregnancy , my nephew.
 
 
I made the card with both pink and blue, I used a pair of cute baby shoes for the image and added a pink and blue ribbon. ( sorry the picture is a little blurry ) 
 
On the inside of the card I stamped,  May God's love heal your sorrow, and may His peace replace your heartache with warm and loving memories.


I am the end of this wonderful hop, but before you go, Would you please join me and say a little prayer for all the families that have suffered a loss of a child?

Pinwheel Card

 
Hello everyone,  I am so sorry for not posting for awhile. I had a sinus and ear infection and my son had a double ear infection.  We're all better now.
 
I want to share this pinwheel card I made for a swap. I love how it turned out! I embossed the base for some texture. Then I added the dsp with strips and added a border to divide the two. I added the pinwheel and placed a button in the center. I thought it needed a little something more so I added a little white ribbon.
 
 
 
 
 
Have a wonderful day!

Decorate To Celebrate Challenge # 85


                                                                      
 
 
Welcome, Today I am sharing A project I made for the Decorate To Celebrate challenge! I made this fall pillow box purse from Fleurette Bloom , who is our sponsor for this challenge . I used the New "Anytime Pillow Box" SVG cutting file collection.
 
I used the pattern in the middle for my project.
 
 
 
To make the purse, I started with the green base and assembled the purse. Then I added some burlap and frayed the ends to make some fun texture, then I used the strings to add a little more to the purse. I stamped the flower and leaves, then I embossed them is white and took my dabber sponges and added the color using some fall colors. I hope you enjoy my project! I really had fun making this!

Madge's Happy Birthday Blog Hop



Welcome to Madge's HAPPY BIRTHDAY Blog Hop!! We are so glad that you have come to celebrate with us! We have great inspiration, projects and a super fun giveaway! You will want to start at Madge's awesome blog! If you came from Angela's Wonderful blog then you are in the right spot.

What is a hop without blog candy? As you hop along you will find blogs that are giving some awesome blog candy away, just follow their directions on how to win their candy.

For my project I made this Gerber Daisy card for Madge. It is one of her favorite flowers! I also know pink is her favorite color!


To make this card, I started with a pink base and a lighter pink first layer. I then took my Gerber Daisy embossing folder and  I colored it by placing the pink ink right on the embossing folder, then I embossed it on a white piece of cardstock. I then colored the centers of the flowers, added the ribbon and Happy Birthday tag. To finish it and pull it all together I made a Gerber Daisy flower.


                         HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADGE!!!!

Now please go and visit Rhonda's wonderful blog and see what awesome project she made!
