Hope, Luck and Love + Birthday Giveaway Winner

Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Splitcoaststampers' Hope You Can Cling To challenges will begin, I thought I would start early and make a card for someone who is battling breast cancer now. I used the Lil' Inker Designs Rainbows & Clouds Dies & Stamp Set to make this quick card that could easily be duplicated in bundles for any breast cancer fundraiser. Ever since I made THIS card, I've wanted to make a pink ribbon with the rainbow dies. (Michelle, I smiled at your comment. Great minds think alike!) I used the two clouds and the largest of the rainbow bands, first adhered with Scor-Tape, and then to the card with foam tape. I combined two of the sentiments from the same set and rounded the corners to finish.

Do you love the Rainbows & Clouds Dies & Stamp Set? You're in luck!! Lil' Inker Designs is launching its brand new website at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, September 26th and you can purchase this set for 20% off! Just use the code 20OFFRC which will be valid until Sunday, October 2nd 11:59 p.m. Happy shopping and thank you for supporting Lil' Inker Designs!

One more thing before you go... I used Random.org to choose the winner of a MAC Cosmetics lipstick or eyeshadow from THIS post and that lucky lady is:

Congratulations, Lindsey! Please email me with your choice and I will get your prize out to you as soon as possible.

And can I say how much I love the OttLites my husband bought me for my birthday? I can't believe I didn't get them sooner! Thank you to all my crafty friends who recommended them. OttLites are amazing and you can see the close-to-midnight photography I did in this post. Do I have you convinced? My mouth was hanging open the entire time I was photographing my card and my husband rolled his eyes. LOL

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your week is wonderful! :)
