Katy's Kindness Blog Hop




Hello and Welcome to the Kindness Campaign Card Drive and blog hop. The Katy M. Murphy Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by Katy's mom Amiee. Katy had a congenital heart defect and lost her life at the tender age of 6. Amiee started the Foundation to honor her daughter's memory.

The Katy M. Murphy Foundation would like to start sending out Kindness Kits to families that are on similar journey as Katy. The purpose of a Katy's Kindness Kit is to share a bit of happiness with a child, and their families, that are stuck in the hospital. Each kit will contain items that brought Katy happiness during her many hospitalizations and will be delivered to patients, inpatient, at Boston Children's Hospital specifically on the cardiac floors. 

We would like to add a handmade card to each kit and that is where YOU come in. We will need many cards and are turning to the card making community for help.

Today we are kicking off the card drive with a blog hop. We are hoping that all of you will help us by sending in cards to help complete Katy's Kindness Kits. The foundation will be delivering kits to the hospital to help make the children and their families stay at the hospital easier, or kinder if you will.

All the details for the card drive can be found HERE, as well as a list of AMAZING sponsors who have offered up some phenomenal prizes to be raffled off to those who submit cards. Please read the rules carefully. The card drive will run from February 14th to April 15th, 2017.

I made this sweet card using Purple Onion Designs stamp just for this hop:




I hope many of you will help and participate by sending in cards. As card maker, we have lots of handmade cards in our stash, what better way than putting them for good use to brighten someone's day, right?
Now, let's get on with the hop. Here is the list of participating blogs. Thank you for stopping by here and may your day be a blessed one filled with lots of love.

Love You More



Hi peeps. I am back with a second card for the day. This time, I am sharing this card I made for The Ton February challenge, which has the theme LOVE.

I think when people think of this theme challenge, we tend to think of pink or red, the color of Valentine. Well, now & then I like thinking differently. Why not venture out & try out fun, unusual color combo to convey love? Love is not only for Valentine, right? And, Valentine doesn't have to be pink or red only.

I am definitely one of those people who have no problem saying I love you, including to my friends. With my friend in mind, I decided to do a feminine, purple girly card.




And, yep, my tendency for unusual color combo came out. At first, I was like.... hm... maybe I made a mistake with the color combo. But then, I was like this combo kind of grow on me. So, I decided to go forward & let it be. :)

I used Poppy Garden Cling Background, added details with Copic & finish with sentiment from I Got You set. For added visual interest, I stamped the butterflies from the same background stamp in different color ink, fussy cut it & adhere to the card with pop dots.

You have about a month to play along, so I sure hope you will join our fun challenge. Just for playing along, you'll get enter for a chance to win $50 of The Ton gift card. You can find all the challenge details & enter  your card HERE.

That's it from me today. May your February be a blessed one.

You're Awesome

Hi peeps. A quick post here as I just want to share this card that I made for My Favorite Things sketch challenge # 316. Hah... as usual, I made it last minute. At least this time, I didn't missed the deadline. Well, barely. ;)

Here's the sketch:




And, here's my card based on this sketch. Super clean look, the way I like it.





I think sending an encouragement or acknowledgement card is a good thing to do. Too often we take the awesome people in our life for granted.  Why not let them know?

That's all from me. Told you it's going to be short. :) Cheers....

The Ton’s 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop




Hi lovely peeps! Welcome to The Ton's 2017 Anniversary release blog hop. You should have arrived here from Chris Dayton's blog. The hop starts at The Ton's Blog.

By now, all the goodies we have shown you are available for purchase at the store. I am curious, what's on your must have list? For me, it's the flowers. I fall in love with The Ton through their flower sets and to this day I consider their flower sets among my favorite.

So, no surprise here, one of my card for today's hop is featuring one of the bloom beauty, the Morning Glory Border. Such fun set to color.





I colored them with ZIG Kuretake Real Clean Brush. Love their bright colors. Blue & green are very soothing & refreshing for me. For some extra texture & embellishment I added the Winter Thaw Couture Mix. It matched this card color scheme so perfectly. The word "My Favorite" was created using Scripty Alpha Upper & Scripty Alpha Lower. Gotta love the freedom to create your own sentiment, right?

For my 2nd card, I turned to the Brushed You sentiment. It's kind of hard to see, but I also used the Freestyle Stripe to add pattern to the left side of the card in tone on tone hue. When you click on the pic below, you can see the card in larger version & it probably showed the stripes better.





I stamped the largest butterfly first, then kind of going back & forth placing the you without stamping it, yet just to make sure I like the butterflies placement. Once all the butterflies are in place, I stamped the word "you" using Misti stamping tool, so I can stamped the gold ink a couple times to get good solid impression. Next,  the fun part!

GIVEAWAY:
Five gift certificates to The Ton's shop: One $75, two $50 and two $25 gift certificates will be given away to random commenters on all the hop participant blogs. To qualify, you must leave a comment on The Ton Blog Hop post. The comment period will close on Monday, January 16th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter.

The Ton has 26 new stamps for their 2017 Anniversary Release which include 3 free gift with purchases. For more information on The Ton’s inventive products, head over to The Ton’s blog. All new release products are available now!

From here, please hop on over to Lisa Harrolle. I hope you enjoy the hop and thank you so much for stopping by here. I really appreciate your visit. :)
