page plans sunday

Good morning stampers! Sorry to be absent for a couple of days...again. I haven't had much time to get stamping done but I LOVE this sketch from Page Plans today and had to take time for it. I've actually made two cards with it but I'm showing you this one because we were asked to make a kids Valentine's Day card for today. What do you think? Kiddo enough?

This card is made with a combination of two SU! sets...Happy Heart Day and Love You Much. The patterned paper is from Target's dollar spot...last year...I'm so proud I didn't lose it or severely bend it! LOL! A little ribbon, a rub on and ta da...all done!

Don't forget about the fabulous contest that Page Plans has going on right now. All you have to do is make two new cards with Page Plans sketches, link them up to Page Plans by 7 p.m. on January 31st and you are entered in! And what could you win? A Making Memories Slice!!! Yeah...you gotta make cards anyway...why not just do it in a way that could help you win a Slice?

On another note I'd like to introduce you to a new blog. This blog is named One Life To Live. My friend, Kelli, is the author of this new blog and she is just the sweetest person. Kelli and I have known each other since we were kids and our mom's were best friends . My mom was her Aunt Cheryl and Kelli is my Cousin Kelli. More than that she is doing a wonderful thing. You see...almost 11 years ago my mom died of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Kelli is a runner for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and is currently training to come and run in the Seattle Rock N Roll Marathon on June 27th this year and she is running in my mom's name. How incredible!!! I'm sure you are wondering why I'm telling you all this, right? Well, Kelli has set a goal of raising $3900 and I am asking that, if you possibly can, you donate to Kelli's run. Even $5 will get her $5 closer to her goal and to the ultimate goal of wiping out Leukemia and Lymphoma. I truly hope that you will check out her blog and enjoy it!

Alright everyone. I hope that you have a super Sunday! Please know it will probably be a few days before I am able to get back to post again. Have a great week and I'll see you soon!

Hi Lori,

I think we were on the same page this week for Page Plans using the same stamp set. I did an awesome Tastefully Simple fundraiser for LLS last fall and you should do one, too!
