More cards for a cure

Another causeabella, I guess I missed her earlier...any I finally got my first order of MFT stamps in!!!! and one of the sets I ordered was think pink, so here are a few creations using that set (the sentiments on the causeabella cards are also from this set.

better late than never

Well as promised, some causeabellas for a cure since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I meant to put some up yesterday but didnt get a chance so here they are. (my mother just had a lump removed the other day (no worries it was fine, they only removed it because it was causing discomfort to her so better safe than sorry they decided to remove it) well anyways the center we were at in valencia is really trying to do mamograms for all women of appropriate age in this month with or without insurance and even have plans to help those who cant afford it. So i am going to meet with the director over there and see if they can display and try to sell my cards. and they would keep all the profits as a donation to their center so wish me luck! and i guess i better get back to work I have more cards to make...and I have to get back to completing my stamp designs...busy busy busy!)

more more and more!

Well since my camping trip was canceled this weekend my hubby and I came home early (sat night) this morning we woke up early and I watched him play a soccer game with a bunch of friends, then spent the rest of the afternoon watching movies together while he worked on the computer and i worked a few feet away at my craft table. I have not been able to put down my new stamp! i was so excited to get to work with it...and I love halloween! ..Well I love ALL holidays! but Halloween just happens to be the closest in occurance.

And well I can't forget that thanksgiving is around teh corner as well. My yahoo group bellaholicsanonymous has a monthly challenge and there monthly bella babe. Well this months theme is for next months posts, is thanksgiving using Autumn colors brown and orange, and it had to include a pumpkin. So here is what I came up with.

And no I'm not done for the day yet lol... I think now it's time for a small change in pace, I think since october is breast cancer awareness month and i do love my causabella, I think I will be making some with her, and with all my new stamp designs that are starting to hit the market, I think i need to make some more samples using some of my own designs...what do you think? lol so I think its time to put in another movie and get back to my craft table! he hee he have a lovely evening everyone and look for even more posts on my blog tomorrow morning!
