Happy Monday!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! It's overcast and dreary here, kinda like my mood...I'm having Olympic withdraw :(
I truly admire Madison of Funky Cards and her I Feel The Love Project. Her heart is huge and so caring. She finds children that are going through a rough time and gathers cards to send to them to brighten their day. How sweet is that?? I would love to be able to participate each month but most months, my schedule won't allow it. I had to create a card for this month's recipient, Olivia, because she is a friend of one of my dear friends. If you haven't visited Madison's blog, Funky Cards, you should...you will be amazed not only at her fabulous projects, but her giving heart.
Olivia is an amazing girl. Soon after losing her mother to cancer, Olivia founded Kids Involved in Cancer Research (KICR) with a fierce drive to raise awareness and money for colon and lung cancer research. She was 8 years old!!
For this card for Olivia, I used paper from the DCWV Music stack. The base was cut with a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle die. The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels 10 die. The edges were all inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The ribbon is from 3 Girl Jam, via my friend Gloria, along with the Bow Maker I used to tie the double bow. The rocker chick was cut from Rock Princess (the cart I'm giving away HERE) with papers from my stash. Crystals were added to the guitar and her boots. She is attached with a handmade wobble so she can rock out :) The tag is a Spellbinders Nested Pennants Die. "You rock" is from K Andrew Designs Guy Talk Stamp Set. Click HERE to purchase this set.
The inside is covered with Spellbinders Labels 25 and Labels 1. "Best Wishes" is from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes stamp set. Click HERE to purchase it or see her entire line of stamps.
