Oh...another little thing I discovered today...you can refill your blender pens with water! I don't know why I didn't think of it before. I like the tip of the blender pens better than the Aqua Painters for blending on watercolor paper (which this is on)...but all my blender pens are dry... so I thought...hmmm....if I put water in, then they would be just like the Aqua pens, but with the tip I like! DUUUUUUHHHH! The blonde moments are coming much more frequently as I get older...and I refuse to call them senior moments yet!
Here's a really quick & easy Dasher card using Real Red and Chocolate Chip accents on a Kraft base. Dasher was stamped in Creamy Caramel. And wouldn't he be cute with a little red nose??? I just didn't have anything to put there. If you haven't seen Dasher in the SU catalogue...check out the back page...he's one of the "singles" available on the back page...perfect for those who are just starting out in the stamping world and don't want to make a huge investment... or perhaps a great stocking stuffer...or giftie for a crafty friend or colleague? At just $10.95 Cdn he's very affordable.

Thank you for joining us on the Blog Hop(e) for Breast Cancer Awareness today. If you've just happened on my blog, please go back to the beginning and check out Michelle's post here...then follow along.
There are so many great images available today to celebrate survivorship, even though I have yet to be personally (family & friends wise) touched by Breast Cancer, I couldn't stop at just one card!
Digital Delights by Louby Lou. Isn't she A-DOR-A-BLE? This is a super-size card...it's 5.25 x 7.5...I have a stash of these mega envies I need to use up, so I'm going to try to make more of this size card... besides, you get a much better view of the images!

Now, this is nowhere near the incredible feat that Cabio has done in combining 13 challenges into one card...yes 13! But I'm happy with the results! Ok...now I have one request to all the challenge blog coordinators reading this... PLEASE NO MORE HALLOWEEN! LOL I know this will probably be the last week for Halloween stuff anyhow, but I gotta say I'm sick to death of Halloween cards :)

I added a little gift card slot inside...I thought a gc to the local coffee shop would go well with this card and make a cute little prezzie for a birthday or Christmas. This card is 6" tall to accommodate the poem in a large enough font to read. I just couldn't resist the poem when I found it.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz:
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The Starbucks:
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the House of Mochas forever.

Once again, I've used a Digiments sentiment to complete this card...perfect because you can make them any size you need...so I needed a long slim sentiment for this card...just made it the height I thought would look good, and VOILA!

I think this is one of my favorite Inktegrity cards ever! Slusser is just so darned cute! This paper is from the K&Co Occasions stack and I just love the colors... a little Christmas-y without over doing it! Now this card is also doubling (tripling?) as two challenge entries... I used the sketch from Corrosive Challenge for this week and I added some winter sparkles to the snow & snowflake brads for the Season that Sparkles challenge at Flourishes.

AND for a little bit of happy news...Joni has asked me to stay on the Design Team for one more month! YAY! I can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve for November's release. Now...on to the cards:
Meet Ricky the Raccoon...and do you see what he's (or maybe she's) reading? It's New Moon of course! I finally caved and thanks to Kim who loaned me her books, I am halfway through Breaking Dawn...and surprisingly I have quite enjoyed these books...ok...maybe you're not surprised LOL. Ricky's card was inspired by this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch. I decided to try watercoloring her...I'm still getting used to the look of watercoloring and I'm not sure if I like it LOL.
And this cute little guy is Blackberry :) I used the MOJO Monday sketch for this one...some days it seems I can't get anything done without a challenge LOL...but I love sketches.

Cardmaking is a woman thing - - but hey, if there's a guy out there who wants to Hop(e) with us, I'm all for that.
I think we all have been touched by Breast Cancer - lost someone, know someone who has it, are battling it ourselves. Let's do our little part to bring some awareness to this disease and celebrate all the survivors.
So here's the deets:
Post a card or L/O or other papercrafted goodness on your site that is Breast-Cancer-Awareness-Month-related: pink, ribbons, inspirational sentiments, etc.
Use the graphic posted at the top of this post in your post to signify that we are all part of this great Hop(e).
Come on girls, let's do this!

Yes, I really have spent all afternoon working on some cards to celebrate. There are lots of challenges on Facebook, PCP and SCS if you're looking for some inspiration. The card above is done with the FREE digi image that Joni is giving you on her blog today! Aren't the ladybugs adorable? I got my CardMaker magazine the other day and as soon as I saw Tami's sketch in the back I knew I was going to make this card today.
Joni has a new FREEBIE available today on her blog to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month and World Card Making Day.
Amy is giving away a gorgeous card kit to celebrate WCMD.
Limelight Paper Crafts has a TON of games, challenges and prizes on their blog today...you have until Sunday night to enter these ones.

The "trick" to this sketch was that the sentiment was supposed to be sideways... hmmm...luckily I have the newly released Digiments get well sentiments. This is just one of 30 sentiments Michelle released last week... and the best part about them??? You can quickly size them to any size you need...so it was very simple to get exactly the size I needed for this card. And since the fonts Michelle used are clean and bold, it's easy to read side-ways :) Don't forget, this month Michelle is donating half of all sales to Travelling Mama!
