Blessed at 60 Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the Blessed at 60 blog hop. Today's project is based on Cancer awareness and support. Make sure you get into the drawing for the Gypsy, the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. 

The cancer than I'm supporting is Lung Cancer. I have a personal experience with Lung Cancer. My Aunt passed away last year after a 6 month battle with it. I was there by her side through all of it. I know what it's like to make Chemo runs and deal with Radiation and doctor's appointments. My Aunt taught me so much through her battle and I miss and love her.  The color for Lung Cancer is clear so I made an acrylic album that I filled with her pictures and Memories I have of her.

Thanks for stopping by, make sure you hop along to Kathy to see what she made.

Blessed at 60 Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to the Blessed at 60 blog hop. We're celebrating the fabulous Kathie's Birthday. You should have arrived here from  Debbie's if you just stopped by be sure to start at the beginning with  Kathie and make sure you don't miss out on all the great blog candy.... and make sure you go to Kathie's blog to find out how to win the Gypsy. 

Now on to my project for the day.

The stamp I used is from Close to my heart... I don't remember which set it is from, but I stamped it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I also made the water and sky with Distress ink. The sentiment is from an old INKADINKADO set and is stamped in Stayz On ink. I used Recollections paper. My card is 41/4 x 5 1/2.

For the inside I used another Close to my Heart stamp from the same set and I stamped them with Distress ink. 

Thanks for stopping by, make sure you come back tomorrow to see what my next project is. Now hop on over to see Kathy has made for you.
