Think Pink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Good Morning Bloggers!

Last month I did some  fundraising for
 Breakthrough Breast Cancer

I had my head shaved & ran a couple of card making challenges!
As a result of this, I heard stories from many people about how they
or a  loved one had been touched by Breast Cancer!
I was so touched by some of the stories, I felt I wanted to send a card.
This is one of the cards I made!

The image & the sentiment are part of a set from

Here's a closer look at
I coloured the image with a combination of my 
Promarkers & Flexmarkers

The sentiment is one of several included.
I distressed it a bit, cut it out with a Spellbinders Die 
& threaded some lace through it.

I punched some flowers using my Tonic Punches
 & layered them up adding a gem to the centre of each.

Here's a photo of the inside!
Thanks to everyone's generosity, the
 total for my fundraising so far is an awesome

October New Releases at The Crafty Pad

Good Morning all!
I hope you're all well!
It's time for the new October New Release Post at 

The image I chose to work with is the 
As you can see, I used the gold!
The sentiment & the border are part of the set.

My card is Clean & Simple & will easily go in the post 
with an ordinary letter stamp!
I printed the image onto some card & added some sparkle
with my Sakura, Clear Star pen. 
Then matted onto some Gold Mirri Board.
The card base is an A6 

I wish you could see just how much it sparkles
 but it's so hard to capture with the camera!
Believe me I tried! lol

I hope you like my little offering!
I did decorate the inside with some Mirri Board but I 
was so intent on capturing the sparkle, I forgot to take a photo!
I did consider further embellishments but decided against it!
