For Jayme . . .


As you may have heard, my friend – Lisa Cook, who I am lucky enough to work with on both the House Mouse & Friends Challenge and Sundays with Crissy design teams, has asked for cards for her sister, Jayme.   Tragically, Jayme has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.   Jayme loves and collects frogs, so Lisa thought some funny frog cards might help cheer her up.  

This toad-aly cute frog, called  Beach Baby Jayme, has been designed specifically for this task by the one and only, so very kind ~  Crissy Armstrong!   The image is available at Whimsy Stamps.   AND, believe it or not, it’s being offered at NO CHARGE!!    You can download the image HERE.  



Lisa has been kind enough to gather some great blog candy from several SUPER companies ~ all you have to do to be eligible for a chance to win,  is make a card for Jayme!    All the details and Jayme’s mailing address can be found on Lisa’s blog.

Quick details on this card . . .  The DP is from the brand new Cosmo Cricket mini deck ~ DeLovely.   (I LOVE  it!)    The pink felt flower ribbon is from Michaels and the sentiment is computer generated.   Beach Baby Jayme has been colored with Copics. 

I hope you can find some time to make a card for Jayme.    Thank you!


Copics Used:   RV02, 04, 06, 09, 13, 14;  YG00, 01, 03, 25, 93;  BG10, 11, 16, 34;  E30, 31, 33, 35;  T1, 3, 5;  W1, 3

Our challenge for this week, selected by the amazing Miss America,  is Good Bye/Farewell.   This was perfect timing since a good friend of mine is leaving the U.S. for a few months for her job.   So this card is for her!    I’ve used the adorable stamp Sweet Kiss, featuring Monica and friend.  



The image has been colored with Copics, cut out and mounted onto a Spellbinder’s Nestabilities Oval die cut.   The flower was made from matching DP with EK Success flower punches.   The sentiment is computer generated.
