Help fund free mamograms

Each year, 182,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. In addition, 1,600 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 400 will die this year.
The Breast Cancer Site provides a feel-good way to help promote awareness of breast cancer and provide free mammograms for women in need every day — through easy and quick online activities.
With a simple, daily click of the pink "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button at The Breast Cancer Site, visitors help to provide free mammograms for women in need. Visitors pay nothing. Mammograms are provided by our charitable partners.
Please click on the link in the sidebar to be taken to
The Breast Cancer Site. Remember to click every day to fund free mammograms and give hope to women in need. Every click counts in the battle to prevent breast cancer.

Christmas in August?!?

I know, I know! Christmas cards in August? Really! Couldn't I at least wait until Labor Day like all the stores do? LOL! It was disgustingly hot out yesterday, so I thought working on some holiday cards might help me to cool off. Or at least think cool, which can be a help on days like that!

This first one uses the new level 1 hostess set, Sidekick Sayings, as well as Polka Dots & Paisley for the embossed red dots on the bottom half. The image is colored in with markers, and then all of the white background was dusted with with a touch of color using the Color Spritzer tool.

The next two cards utilize the Three For You punch. I love how versatile this punch is! Who would have thought a flower punch would make such cute holiday cards?

My last two cards use It's Snow Time and Lovely as a Tree. Each card is three layers (sky, trees/mountains, and snowpeople), and the top two layers are popped up on dimensionals to give the scene some depth. Trust me when I say these look much cooler in person.

Crop-a-dile How To

My favorite new tool in the new catalog is the Crop-a-Dile.

It is an eyelet setter and hole puncher in one. Its built-in 1/8" and 3/16" circle punchers punch through chipboard, tin, and multiple paper layers with ease. It also silently and easily sets eyelets of any size. When you get one, don't throw away the cardboard backing, because it gives you all of the information you need on how to set it for different sizes of eyelets.

Check out this great video I found on YouTube explaining how to use it. Enjoy!
