Yes it is Autumn

Brr & warm wishes to you all.

I thought I'd ink up my new French Foliage stamp set that arrived the day before the long weekend - it's rather fabulous & I've used every single one of the six stamps on this card which is simple & inspired by Dawn Olchefske.

Stamp sets: French Foliage, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, More Mustard. Cajun Craze, Perfect Plum
Paper: Confetti Cream, Perfect Plum, Early Espresso
Other: Hemp twine, dimensionals, clear D block (Dawn's shadow effect)

Thanks for poppin' in :)

Happy Easter from me & a time for giving

I hope everyone's long weekend is going according to plan - though my Easter egg supply may not be big enough ;)

I thought I would share on this Holy day the Strength & Hope campaign for Breast Cancer Research. Click on this link if you'd like to hear a personal message from Shelli Gardener, CEO & co-founder of SU!

Throughout the 2011 Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue sales period, Stampin’ Up! will donate $2* from the sale of each Strength & Hope set ($34.95 unmounted or $43.95 wood mounted) to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).  BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide. For more information about BCRF, visit www.bcrfcure.org.

Below is is a gorgeous card that Sarah Roche from my team created with the set. I do love the colours - very sexy pink (Melon Mambo) teamed with Pink Pirouette, for think pink for breast cancer!

Thanks Sarah it is a stunning card - if you'd like to make a difference plus scoring a gorgeous stamp set - contact me to order yours today.

Receiving such gorgeous cards as these almost makes it worthwhile turning another year older - thanks Judy & Debbie.
