What is Free to BreatheĀ® ?

Here is a video that describes the Free to BreatheĀ® lung cancer event series. There are 31 events nationwide this year, and they include walks, runs, golf tournaments and yogathons. Please visit the Free to Breathe website to find an event in your area, or consider participating in the National Walk right in your own backyard! The research and patient education programs funded by the National Lung Cancer Partnership are truly special and benefit from the money raised at these events. Thank you!!!



Paper Dolls Challenge #4

Hi everyone! I am back with some cards for the Paper Dolls challenge, which is being hosted this week by Jen Carter. Her challenge is "Feminine/Masculine" so we are supposed to make two different cards with the same layouts and images, but one should be masculine and one should be feminine. When I first saw what she wanted us to do, I thought, "Heck yeah, this is a challenge!" Man-cards are tough for me, but playing along was actually really fun. Thanks, Jen!. Here is what I came up with:

Masculine Card Supplies {by PTI unless otherwise noted} 
Stamps: Text Boxed, Mixed Messages, A Little Argyle
Paper: Ric-Rak card (Paper Source), New Leaf, kraft, Bitty Box Basics
Ink: New Leaf, Lemon Tart, Dark Chocolate
Other: twine, New Leaf twill ribbon, lemon tart button,

Feminine Card Supplies {by PTI unless otherwise noted} 
Stamps: Text Boxed, Mixed Messages, A Little Argyle
Paper: Ric-Rak card (Paper Source), Hawaiian Shores, kraft, Bitty Box Basics
Ink: Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores
Other: twine, Hawaiian Shores twill ribbon, Sweet Blush Button



Quick little wedding card

Edit! How could I forget to mention this? I am the host of the Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge this week, and this card is one of a few that I will post this week in the spirit of the sketch that is being featured right now. Head on over and submit your take on the sketch too!

Hi everyone! Thanks to all my friends over on the PTI fourm for their wedding card ideas. I ended up making this quick little 3.5 inch square card to pair with the bride and groom's gift.

The car was coated with a very light coat of light blue shimmery chalk and the headlights and windshield were filled with that awesome shiny glaze stuff so they looked like glass. I hope you all have a fun weekend!
