Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

No matter who we are, we are all the same on the inside!

Today’s card is a small token (with a big bunch of bright pink gerbera flowers) of thanks for a dear friend of mine who has been so supportive of me in my fight with MS. She’s wanted to support and help me in easing the pressure of learning to drive again (using hand controls) to regain some independence. She setup a Go Fund Me page and  I cannot thank everyone enough with how generous they have been. Yesterday I had another driving lesson which took us through busy Dandenong, learning to park and drive through unpredictable and unknown areas. I am so determined to do this and with Lisa’s help it is feeling closer than ever. Thank you xxx

Here is the card I made her using the Artfully Aware stamp set from pg46 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. This is the perfect stamp set, don’t you think?!

I stamped the ribbon image multiple times in the background in Petal Pink and used the Wink of Stella to colour each one (the photo doesn’t do it justice).

The image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

How good does the layering of the different punched pieces look? I also dry embossed them with different embossing folders for extra texture. The embellishment of the ladies wrist is a retired Glitter Epoxy Shape, but I thought is was cute.

You know friends really are so supportive and being International Women’s Day, it was the absolute perfect time to share this.

Kiss Goodbye to MS

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card that is a subject very close to my heart literally, as it is the demon that I live with every day, Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system, interfering with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It is characterised by sclerosis a Greek word meaning scars. These scars occur within the central nervous system and depending on where they develop, manifest into various symptoms.

I was first diagnosed in 2004, so I have been dealing with it for many years and up until the past couple of years I was doing fine. I will now embark on a change of treatment to monthly infusions, so I depending on how my body takes them, I may not be able to post quite as often as I would like, but please stay with me, as my craft and family is what keeps me going!!!

Today, I have a card which has the slogan “Kiss Goodbye to MS”. An initiative of MS Research Australia, the mission is to accelerate Australian research targeting the prevention, better treatments and a cure for MS.

The minute I saw the stamp set, Sealed with Love, I noticed the lips and knew I had to have this set to create my own cards for MS. It also had the word KISS, which is perfect for my sentiment. The black font I printed from my computer.

And check out my Everyday Hero wonder woman, she just says to me, we can beat this disease and it’s not going to define who we are!
