Be Breast Cancer Aware!

Why do you see so much pink every October? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign by major breast cancer organizations to increase awareness of the disease. This includes educating the public about early detection, the cause, diagnosis, treatment, and support for survivors.

We on the Greetings team wanted to show our Pink support by creating a challenge for everyone to get involved. Here is my card for this challenge. We hope you will join us and show us your pink awareness cards!

Only by participating in THE OUTLAWZ 1000 MEMBER PARTY BLOG HOP  You can find out how right now!!! :D  If you want to learn how to make some fun cupcake wrappers you should check out the fun tutorial over at Anary's blog!

Happy Columbus Day!


This is a wonderful day not only to recognize the fact that Christopher Columbus discovered America but also because it is time for this week’s Greetings Challenge at The Outlawz!!
We are so thrilled for those of you who were able to stop by The Outlawz last week and take part in the fun, games and creative challenges for the 1000 Member Party Celebration! I know I had a blast learning new techniques from the blog hops!
One of those techniques was the Z Fold Swing Card by Brenda and for The Greetings Challenge  I decided to take what I learned and create my card for this weeks challenge theme. I hope you come join us at The Outlawz!

The Outlawz PARTY Sketch Challenge!

What a fun sketch challenge for the 1000 Member Party over at THE OUTLAWZ!

For my card I kind of twisted two challenges together the CAS and the Sketch Challenge. I used items that have been haunting me for quite some time. I didn't know how I would ever use these items. I made them using the pens of the Cricut machine. I made them when I first received my Cricut machine and have had them in my stash all this time. The border was also something that didn't quite get cut through that I have had lingering around till I finally used it on this card.
