I just love this! It was perfect with the digital stamp I had to purchase from Whimsie Doodles.
I made this for my special friend, Lisa, who has a fight ahead of her. I even used my Cuttlebug here on the smaller Pink ribbon.
Thanks for looking and grab that freebie NOW!

I had so much fun with the first one that I had to make another, this time for a boy birthday! The picture didn't turn out as well as I would have liked unfortunately. It wouldn't scan because of the ribbon knot and it is too dark for photos outside when I get home from work. So this is the best it gets! I love the paper and the little stickers! These are Cosmo Cricket's Monstrosity line. You get purchase this paper at Paper Popsicles at an amazing DISCOUNT! The Monster Truck image is from Dustin Pike. I used my Copics and Bic Mark-its again to color this. The letters are October Afternoon mini alphas. Thanks for looking! Happy Scrapping!

This soccer paper is only 18 cents at the Paper Popsicles Store! It is in the clearance section with oodles of other bargains. And the digital image is exclusive to Paper Popsicles' as well!!!! I used my copics and Bic Mark-It pens to color in the image in some spots (thanks Melissa!)
Your choice of 3 card templates from the Paper Popsicles store! These are great to print and cut out or cut out with your Cricut using SCAL and Inkscape! And they are reusable too! Hours and days and multiple uses for these great cards that are unique to Paper Popsicles!

With this card I had fun with my embossing folder, paint, and glitter. Lots of layers with a Heidi Swapp flower I had hanging around, a Cosmo Cricket tag from Early Bird, Making Memories stick pins and plastic flower piece, and miscellaneous ribbon. Thanks for looking!

I used Patty Pig from Paper Popsicles' digitals. The entire sentiment reads: I HOPE YOU SQUEAL BETTER SOON! I made this for one of my staff who have come down with the dreaded H1N1 virus...hope it lifts her spirits! Thanks for peeking and Happy Scrapping!

Here is what she has written to share with you:
So many things have happened to me since I was diagnosed with cancer. Some of the best things that have happened are the most generous folks who have provided me with such loving and thoughtful gifts. As I sat to write thank you notes to my family and friends, I wished there was some way I could show them how much I appreciated their thoughts/words/prayers/gifts. Store bought thank you notes seemed so impersonal and so little in comparison to the generosity shared with me. So my special friend agreed (without a moment's hesitation) to help make personal thank you notes and asked her creative friends to help too. I was delighted and overwhelmed by the beautiful thank you notes that I received...even from people I have never had the honor of meeting....so thank you for helping to make thank you notes....they are absolutely delightful and so appreciated. When someone gets such bad news as cancer, it is truly a blessing when friends brighten our days....
With my sincere thanks, Lisa
