Cards For Emily Blog Hop - Day 1!!


Welcome to the Cards for Emily Blog Hop Day 1!!

This is a 2 day hop so be sure to come back tomorrow for some more inspiration! :)

If you came from Robin at Robin's Creative Cottage then you are in the right place! If you just happened across my blog and are interested in the entire hop and Emily's story, start back at Michelle's blog at Scrappin' For Kenzie!

Emily is a sweet little 6 year old girl that has battled Leukemia since before Chrstmas 2011. She has had to endure more pain in a few short months than most adults in their entire life. She has gone from Leukemia to Rotavirus, to pancreatitis, to kidney stones, then to shingles, not to mention over 300 pokes in her tiny little body! From chemo to blood draws to feeding tube. Her bone marrow is finally at 0.00% so she is now in remission and back at home! She is still going through 7 different chemotherapy treatments but is finally doing better! To read her full story and updates please visit the original Cards for Emily info post HERE.

For this hop all we ask is that you hop through the list, then when you are done, link up your card for Emily at Scrappin' for Kenzie. The link up tool is in the left hand side bar under "Cards for Emily". You will see her picture right above it.

REMEMBER: There is no requirement to leave comments or even hop through all of the blogs if you don't have time. There will be no personal candy at any of the stops along the way. That way you can get maximum inspiration to make your own card and have enough time to link it up and send it away!

There WILL be however a giveaway to one lucky winner that links up their card by February 29th 2012. You can link up as many cards/projects that you would like. The more you link up and send the more greater your chance is of winning a.....

$20 gift certificate to


Their etsy store has over 100 stamps to choose from!

Now on to my card for Emily! I created a Valentine's Day card for her today!!


The paper is from The Paper Studio Uptown Flair paper stack. I cut the adorable little girl and cat from Kate's ABC's at 3". The pink scalloped square is a Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacy Squares die and I embossed it with Swiss Dots and stitched it to the heart background paper. I attached the girl with foam tape for dimension and added pearls to the flowers.


"Happy Valentine's" is from K Andrews Designs It's Valentine's stamp set, as is "Hugs and Kisses" on the inside. Click HERE to purchase this stamp set, or to see the entire fabulous line of K Andrew Designs stamps.


Thank you sooooo much for joining us in this great cause for Cards For Emily!! We REALLY REALLY hope you will participate and link up your card to put a smile on this very beautiful, very deserving little girl that Michelle is honored to call her niece. :)

Happy Scrapping! Hope to see you again tomorrow!

Here is the line-up for Day 1 in case you get lost along the way. Be sure to come back tomorrow as we have all new projects and some new designers!

My sweet friend, can you imagine the smile on her face when she receives this fantastic card? I love Kate's ABCs and it was such a great choice for this sweet project. I love how you dressed her, love all the layers, and of course adore the stitching and embossing. Know what else I love? That you made the inside so pretty. :o) Her beautiful heart will sparkle even brighter when she opens it! Lovely work, Lisa. I will certainly participate in this wonderful endeavor.

Hugs and blessings!
