Birds of a Feather Flock Together...a PCJ GDT Post!!

I am so very excited to be posting today! Why, you may ask? Because today I am a Guest Designer at Paper Crafting Journey! Woo-Hoo! How fun is that? I just love PCJ - there are always so many fantastic challenges & some great inspiration, as well as terrific sponsors. Please take the time to check out PCJ by clicking HERE! This week the challenge at PCJ is border punches. I love using border punches & one of my favorite ones is the scallop punch. It just really can add some pizazz to so many types of projects! I also broke out some of my favorite Cosmo Cricket papers to whip up this cutie card. You know you can never go wrong with Cosmo Cricket!

Patterned Paper - Cosmo Cricket (garden variety & togetherness collections)
Cardstock - The Paper Studio, Making Memories
Scallop Punch - Stampin' Up
Adhesives - Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots, Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue
Stash - Buttons, Ribbon, Twine

I hope you take the time to hop on over to PCJ HERE & play along with this week's challenge. There is a really fun prize up for grabs, plus you can have the opportunity to be a GDT as well! I am also blessed enough to say that I will be guest designing for PCJ once again next month, so make sure to stay tuned. 
Until then, Big Hugs & Happy Craftin'!

Dream Big...

Ahhh, it's good to dream. Especially when you dream up fun projects that use up your Cosmo Cricket stash! As y'all know I'm more than a little slightly obsessed with Cosmo Cricket products & thanks to Your Memories Here, I get my fix on all the goodies. So once again, for my YMH DT post, I decided to whip up a sweet card using products from Cosmo Cricket's Odds & Ends, Togetherness, & Upcycle Collections. I really love how the card turned out...specifically the ruffled ribbon layers. The ribbon is by Offray & I've got some in pink I can't wait to use too!

FBD's 'Save the Hooters' Blog Hop!

Good Morning and thank you for joining in on the Fresh Brewed Designs Save The Hooters blog hop. 
If you are getting here from Stacy's blog HERE then you are right on track. If not, please start off at the beautiful and talented Linda's blog.

We are so happy that you are joining us today as we spread smiles, share beautiful projects and most of all raise awareness. The word Cancer is one that makes us all cringe and sometimes turn away. That does not make it go away, it just means we try to avoid talking about it and pretending it is not there. It is there and it is a reality. I know most of us have had family or friends who have been diagnosed with a form of cancer or know someone who has died of cancer related causes. One of those cancers is Breast Cancer. In the year 2011 in the United States alone approximately 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women have been reported, approximately 57,650 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer, and approximately 39,520 deaths from breast cancer (women).
Fresh Brewed Designs has created a brand new rubber stamp set as well as several digital stamps in which part of your purchase will be donated to Chemo Angels. If you have not heard about Chemo Angels we suggest you look them up. They are a wonderful organization. They support all forms of cancer as well as have ways to donate in the form of time, cards, as well as monetary donations. To find out more about how Fresh Brewed Designs will be taking part, visit HERE.
