Sentimental Sundays & a Fundraiser

We are kicking off a new Sentimental Sundays challenge. Since it is the middle of summer and the flowers are in full bloom, we are asking you to use FLOWERS (and a sentiment) on your creations. We have two fabulous sponsors this week, Sweet N Sassy Stamps and Raindrop Echo Designs.

For my projects, I used this adorable digital image from Sweet N Sassy Stamps and a sentiment from one of the sets designed by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs as a fundraiser being hosted by Kim Sherrod to help out a friend of hers. Below I have copied the wording directly from Kim’s blog explaining the fundraiser.

This is a fundraiser to help my friend out at this time to help her with expenses so she can see her son. He has a heart problem and it's costly for the trip and it's financially difficult for her to travel. Help us to make it possible for her to spend some time with him. She doesn't think he's going to make it and anything will help to ease her burden during this difficult time.

We are so grateful to Ann V. of Raindrop Echo Designs for designing these beautiful stamps to help us with our fundraiser. We are offering these stamps in both digi and clear stamps. We will send you the digi stamps within 24 hours.

The clear stamps are a pre-order item. We have to meet a minimum in order to place the clear stamp order. The minimum is very minimal. The clear stamps are a wonderful quality and we've worked with the stamp manufacturer before.

Your file will come in jpeg and png files.

Thank you for your support :-)

Here is a look at the images that are available either as clear stamps or as digital stamps.

To order these images or to find out more information on the fundraiser, please stop by Kim Sherrod’s blog HERE.

Stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see the flower creations from the rest of the DT. While you are there, you can download this week’s free digital sentiment set designed by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs and link up your Flower + a sentiment creation.

Thank you for stopping by!

I'm really pleased you wanted to join us this week for the "Oh the Flowers" challenge at Our Creative Corner. However, it looks like you may have missed the key part of the challenge - NOT using flowers in your creation, but using the photos as inspiration! We'll have to remove this particular creation off our Linky, but really hope you'll make another wonderful creation so that we may consider you for our weekly award. We really do love having you visit our 'Corner' blogosphere, keep on creating!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
