Believe in your Dreams

Morning Peeps,

Hope everyone had a fab weekend.  Mojo still hasn't returned but I'm sure it will once I have finished my mammoth sort out in my craft room, which I am pleased to say is nearing the end. I made by storage unit today using foamboard for all the scraps of 12x12 cardstock.  I had a huge storage box filled with odds and ends which overspilled and I never used to go in it. How wasteful!  So I have thrown out alot and I mean alot and made a storage unit for easy access to the colours so I will be using up my scraps before cutting into another piece of 12x12 cardstock.

Today's card for the Simply Sassy Inspiration is a special card.  I saw the post on Michelle's post reaching out to all us crafty bloggers to put a smile on Haeli's face through a card drive.  If you havent read the post, Haeli is a 12 year old girl going through the trauma of a rare type of ovarian cancer and is currently under going chemotherapy.  So I decided to use "Hippie Love" available HERE from Funky Kits, and make her a really cheery card.  She is also into art so as I have recently had a sort out I will be forwarding a few crafting items to Haeli.  If any of you would be willing to send a card to Haeli I'm sure she would appreciate it.



I have distressed the edges and added walnut stain and stardust stickles.  I cut the flowers out from the paper and added some glossy accents and brads to the centres.  I also cut out a few quicktutz doodad flowers and dotted here and there.  She really is a flower power girl.

Ingredients:-

Hippie Love available HERE
Medium - Copics
Martha Stewart border punch
Lace, Brads and doily from stash
Liquid pearls for the centre of the doodads
Sentiment from Lili of the valley

I hope she puts a smile on Haeli's face.

I have entered her into the following challenges:-

Gingerloft - Diecuts or Punhces
Lets ink It Up - Die Cuts or Punches
Catch the bug - Card for a child or baby
SSDS - Spring has sprung
Sugar Creek Hollow - Anything Goes
Art Impressions Stamps - Punches/Die Cuts
