Brighter Days are Coming Your Way

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! How can October be half over already??


I have a couple of cards to share with you today that I created for a very special cause. My sweet friend Becca of The Damsel of Distressed Cards is hosting The Hop to Stop, a blog hop to raise awareness for victims of domestic violence.


Becca is an such an inspiration and I hope you'll stop by her blog to read her story and then join me in supporting her very important cause.


I used Lemoncraft Everyday Spring papers for this card. A Memory Box Distressed Windham Collage die was used in the top corner.


Tucked among the Wild Orchid Crafts Pretty Flori flowers are Memory Box Chloe Stems, Elizabeth Craft Curvy Leaves and Impression Obsession Foliage. The beautiful crinkle ribbon is Pure Love from the Valentine Bundle at DL.ART.


A Spellbinders Decorative Labels 1 die was used to hide the sentiment tag. The butterfly is a Fiskars punch. The lace and cheesecloth are from my stash.


The tag is a Sue Wilson Pierced Tag die. I thought the sentiment was perfect for this hop. It's from My Creative Time's Be Awesome set. I finished it off with some white acrylic paint using a Tim Holtz Splatter Brush.


Because I can never make just one card, I made another in pink :) The papers for this one are from Lemoncraft's Neverending Summer stack. The rest of the details are the same except for the beautiful ribbon...it's my favorite - Sweet Love from DL.ART's Valentine Bundle.


Another perfect sentiment for this hop...Never Give Up is from My Creative Time's You Matter set.


I am entering this in Becca's hop and the following challenges:

1) Hop to Stop - Anything Goes Using Purple
2) Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday


Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

Oh how I've missed your amazing creations Lisa sweet friend! Thank you for stopping by and wishing Mum and myself well . . . it meant a lot! Can't stop now I'm afraid, I am off to sort out some more things that she had got into a muddle with because of the Sepsis (she'd be mortified if she knew about it all), until I have a little more time, take care and have an amazing week!

Your cards are lovely Lisa! Your papers are stunning and look at all the yummy details! Spectacular layers, gorgeous flowers and love all the foliage tucked beneath! So pretty, as always my friend!

Hope you had a great wknd! I was able to get some things done on Saturday. Sunday I was a couch potato, just didn't feel well. Still feeling a little off today so laying low :( I am trying to get Arya's class treats done for their Halloween party next week and then scrambling to get some of her b/day favors done. Does it ever slow down, hehe?! I hope you are all caught up from being gone from vaca...it's hard to get back in the swing of things when gone. I swear it takes me like a month to get back on a schedule,lol!
Have a great day~
