I was asked to host a “Hope You Can Cling To” challenge on Splitcoaststampers and I would love if you would join me. You can find the information about my challenge HERE. For my challenge I decided to honor a friend of mine (and former downline) who lost her battle with cancer in August. Although hers was not breast cancer, it was still extremely devastating. Robin was the Post Mistress of a small post office close to my house. I always went there to do all my swap mailings, we became friends then she joined my downline. She was one of the nicest people you would ever meet. She died at the age of 46. So in honor of Robin, my challenge on SCS is “Let’s Lick This Thing”…using postage stamps, postage stamp punch on your cards.
For my first card I decided to go very CAS. The base of the card is Elegant Eggplant. I took a piece of Whisper White and pierced a double heart on it, layered it onto a piece of Lucky Limeade then to my card front. I stamped the pretty flower image using StazOn Jet Black on Watercolor paper, colored with Elegant Eggplant and Lucky Limeade markers, punched out with the 1” Square Punch, layered on an Elegant Eggplant Postage stamp punch then to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting using StazOn Jet Black on Lucky Limeade, cut with the Bitty Banner Framelit then added to the card front using dimensionals.
So please, if you have time, join my challenge. Once you make card you then donate that card to a Breast Cancer site in Texas to brighten the day of a person fighting Breast Cancer. “Let’s Lick This Thing”!
