Link Up Love Party with K Andrew.


Hello my lovely blogger friends, I have decided to play along in the first Link up party ever!!!!  Kristal Andrew over at "Getting Cricky with K Andrew" is always doing something rather it be designing her very own stamps, making cards, scrapbooking, you name it! She continues to surprise me for I am always learning something new about her, she is defiantly the most interesting person I have ever come across.What I love is that Kristal is one of those people who reaches out to others and she donates to different causes all the time, not just during a blog hop event!

So how does it work???? Hop on over to K Andrew's and find out!!! Just follow the this link http://www.gettingcricky.com/2011/06/love-link-up-party-621-to-628.html It is sure to be a blast!! The link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration, I am excited to do just that!!!

Now for my project:

I choose to show this baby card that I made for a very special friend who was blessed with a bouncing baby boy who was perfectly healthy. I have a son that was born with bowel problems and he never  had an opening in his bum so we spent the first 40 days in the hospital, when Michael was three he was diagnosed with autism but yet I am grateful because I became a stronger person and Michael now seven taught me the meaning of true love.... if anyone is interested I dedicated the past two years taking a Graphics's and Web Development course in order to build a site on autism which you can visit here  
I am at the end of my 2 year plan, all is left to do is to get people to support me and follow my blog and hopefully when I build an online presence I can sell cards and 10% of what I make will be  donated to the Autism Society of PEI, this is my goal.. you could help simply by choosing to follow me, I would be ever grateful and I will be sure to visit your blog as well. Bless all of you

Hope you have as much fun as I am going to have!!

Shabby chick grunge card

Yesterday I made a card and didn't know what style it was so I choose Shabby chic grunge which best describes it to me. Out of curiosity I googled "Shabby Chic Grunge" and whatada know???? It is actually a word that is used and it turns out I didn't invent it, :( 

All I did was use gray card stock, stamp black images and put gesso on it and repeat it. I did put a medium clear coat on the background but not the square image in the middle. I clearly distressed the edges, actually more so than I usually do and I love it and added ribbon! Voila!  Any questions just leave me a comment!

This week will be all about teachers for me, School is closing and there is no better way of thanking your child's teacher than to make them a card saying thank you, they deserve so much more for all their hard work.
