PMS Digi Makeover Challenge 37

This week we are doing our part to save the environment. It is...
I recycled a cardboard cup sleeve from Starbucks. I have a ton of these. I separated the backs and trimmed off the bottom. Then I ran it through a woodgrain embossing folder and sponged it with some Distressing Ink. I love how it turned out; a sort of woodgrained stripe look. I used a sentiment from Caffeine Trip.

Now grab some of your Digi Stamps and do you part to save the environment. Play along with our challenge this week for a chance to win some FREE Digi Stamps from Paper Makeup Stamps. Get the details on the blog.

PMS May Flowers Blog Hop

This week we are doing a May Flowers hop with the regular and digi design teams.

I used Moody for Flowers and a flower Digi Word Art. All pieces except the ovals were cut with my Silhouette Cameo. Love that machine.

You have two different chances to win free digis. As you travel along the hop, leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win some digi stamps. Also play along with our May Flowers theme using your favorite digi stamps for a chance to win. You can get all the details about how to play along at the PMS blog.

Here are the links for all of the participants of this blog hop. So grab a cup of your favorite drink, sit back and prepared to be inspired.

Get Well Wishes For Karen

Welcome to a special blog hop we are calling, Karing for Karen!!
A hop for a very special friend of ours, Karen Knegten.

If you have been around the stamping community for any length of time at all, you might have run into Karen. She is always participating in challenges, offering us wonderful inspiration with her awesome talent! About a month ago, Karen had to have surgery for two brain aneurysms. She is still in the hospital and we are having this blog to inspire more of you out there to send in some cards to Karen AND to her family that is caring for her too! So hope you feel inspired with our little hop for you today.

I chose to send Karen some sunshine by adding a large shining sun on my card that let's her know I am praying for full healing for her body.

Below you will find all of the links to all of the girls participating...these are from the CSS Alumni group and the Design Team from Gina K Designs.

Enjoy and be inspired to send a card or two in! Here is the address for sending the cards to:
