Jen's Sunshine

 
 
 
Hello everyone! So happy you came back today because I'm sharing this card for my Top Tip Tuesday teamie, Jennifer Scull, who's fighting breast cancer. You can learn more about Jen's journey on her blog at Just Coffee Please...& Stamps, & Ribbons & Paper. Her outlook on life is positive and she is definitely a fighter. However, the medical bills can be overwhelming and to help Jen and her husband with those expenses her teamies at Paper Makeup Stamps created a digi stamp set in her honor called Jen's Sunshine. This is a wonderful set with two images and three word art digis in jpeg & png files. The set was introduced on the Paper Makeup Stamps blog where you can preview all five images and if you fancy the set purchase here. All of the proceeds (100%) go to Jen to help with her medical bills and PMS is also sponsoring a blog hop today in her honor. I missed the sign up date but I did not want to miss the opportunity to let her know how much I support her, and women/men everywhere, in dealing with this disease. If you'd like to show your support too hop on over to Paper Makeup Stamps blog to join in the fun and leave Jen an encouraging message. You can also show your support by purchasing the digi set, Jen's Sunshine, and you'll not only be helping her out but you'll get five terrific digi's to play & create with. That's a win-win in my book!
 
Many thanks to Jenn Cochran of Party Time Tuesday's for organizing this blog hop and to the Paper Makeup Stamps blog for hosting the week long hop & creating a beautiful digital stamp set for all of us to play with. The community of crafters is a very special one indeed where we see the very best of humanity.  

For color inspiration I played along with the CR84FN61 Color Challenge and the wonderful combo of aqua, tan and cream. I love these colors and they were the perfect backdrop to showcase this wonderful word art digi from the set. I'm also playing along with the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge-Ribbon & Bows & Paper Play Challenge-Sentiment as Main Image Focus. I had fun making this card for Jen and it will go off in the mail to her today. Hope she likes it!






Thanks for dropping by and let's remember to cherish every day because it truly is a gift.
Hugs,
Lisa

Lisa - This is a beautiful card for a very special lady - made by a sweet friend!

My son and I lost my sweet husband to brain cancer 6 months ago and I always am so touched when I see people reaching out to help those with cancer. It is a very challenging road but the silver lining is all of the love and support that comes from those around you...I am so touched by your post, your card, and YES - each day, each moment is truly a gift!
