Jen's Sunshine Blog Hop & Flutterby Wednesday


Paper Makeup Stamps and Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog proudly present 
"Jen's Sunshine" Blog Hop
This hop will remain open till Tuesday Sept.4th
Winners announced Sept. 7th

Today we take time to honor our friend and fellow crafter Jen Scull.  If you are here hopping with us, then we are sure you know Jen is battling breast cancer.  She has been fighting this nasty disease since February.  On behalf of Jen, we thank you for being here.


I used the fairy and one of the 3 sentiments from the Jen's Sunshine Digi Set for the outside of my card.  100% of the proceeds from the purchase of this set benefits Jen Scull and her family - you can read about it here.  I was inspired by this week's Sketch Saturday #222 and Carta Bella DP.  

The challenge at Flutterby Wednesday this week is to also decorate the inside of your card.  Here I've used another one of the sentiments from Jen's Sunshine and more of that luscious Carta Bella DP.  {grin}  I also edged  the layers with a stardust glitter pen for some sparkle!

Be sure to scroll all the way down and check out the details on some prizes!  {wink}

We ask as you hop along with us, please consider donating at least $1 using the paypal donation button at any stop along the way.  Your donation will go directly to Jen. Thank you.
