I had actually created this card for a swap for the PhillyInkers, however the meeting we were to have was rescheduled, and the following meeting the set that I had used went onto the Discontinued list. I did however use the cards for a swap on my fav MB, and I also used them to send to the folks in my Stampin Up club. So it really wasn’t a big deal in the end! Ok so I used Stampin Up’s Something New to Love set. I chose some different colors of pinks and red inks. I used Pink Pirouette, Pink Passion, Riding Hood Red and Real Red all of which are the Classic Inks. I also used the Black StazOn ink. I added a piece of Pink Passion cardstock, and tied on a strip of the ¼” Grosgrain Real Red ribbon. It is a little bright, but I like it!
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
