Guest Spot for Craft-e-Corner

I have three posts today, so if you are looking for the
or the Hampton Art Stamps posts, please click the links.

I am pleased to be part of the Craft Pink Event at Craft-e-Corner! The Hampton Art Stamps DT has teamed up with Craft-e-Corner to make a pink projects in honor of Beast Cancer Month. To vist the Craft-e-CornerBlog, click HERE.

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have read that I had my own breast cancer scare this past week. Long story long...when I had my annual mammogram the end of September, they saw an abnormality. I was sent back for a second mammogram and an ultrasound. Both showed an abnormality and they scheduled me right away for a biopsy. I went in for that procedure Monday afternoon. They did the ultrasound in order to know where to biopsy, but they could not find the "mass"! The mass was gone. It was clearly visible on both mammograms and the first ultrasound, but now it was no longer visible to the technician or the doctor! They ruled it a "resolved cyst" and told me to come back in a year! Praise God!

This card means even more to me today than it did the day I created it!

I created a pink confection! I wanted something very feminine and pink, with a vintage feel to it. I stamped the chandelier in black ink, then sponged on pink chalk ink and added some bling. I then stamped the clock onto printed paper and added a pearl brad. I wanted to convey the passing of time...and that we should spend each day wisely!

Do you love the bling?! I do!
