New Carts & Pink for Monique

Hi Everyone!! It seems like I'm not sleeping tonight. The heat (which just started) is getting to me. I think there is a huge fire somewhere. Ive had the news on but its background noise so I cant say with certainty where its happening & if its happening.

So on Friday, I was at Jury Duty. Luckily I wasn't called in a group. Phew!! I had a lot of time that day & boy did I wish I had a gypsy at that moment. I'm sure I could have done so much. So I did the next best thing, peruse all the blogs & find inspiration. I did come across Lauren's Creative... She "claims" to be a newbie but I don't think she really is :)  I say that because her projects are amazing! I found some great ideas and inspiration. And there are def some projects I'd like to scrap-lift. Go check her out.

Ok, so onto my cards...
I got these carts in the mail a couple of days ago. I completely love them.  I know Critter is sooo last season but can you blame a gal for wanting that cart. Its too cute.

I wasn't sure where to begin on this cart. Although i think it's adorable, I didn't know how to incorporate these Halloween images. Until today. At My Pink Stamper, Robyn has a post up called "Pink for Monique". Monique is an amazing crafter and fellow blogger who was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Robyn came up with a Card Campaign for her & would like for all of us to over flood her mailbox with get well pink wishes.
Ive never been good as to what to say to someone that is going through difficulty of that proportion so I chose to make her a cute & playful card. I tweaked my spider a bit. Where the ribbon is, she's suppose to have a manly bow but I didn't like that. And of course I gave her some cute googly eyes to give her a sassy look. The top sentiment is rub on stickers and the bottom is a Hello Darling stamp. I'll be popping this card into the mail tomorrow & I hope that it bring a little smile to her face.

This card I made for my friend that I haven't been able to get together with. She lives approx 50-60 miles (roundtrip) away from me, therefore the distance makes it difficult for us to get together. So I'm hoping this cutie will put a smile on her face.

Thanks for stopping by/commenting!! And please consider joining the card campaign.
