A Special Paper Smooches Blog Hop(e)

Hi, everyone! :) As most of you probably know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  And to celebrate World Card Making Day, the Paper Smooches DT is having a special blog hop.

So many of us know or have known someone who has battled this terrible disease; some have beat it and some have not.  In honor of all of the brave women (and men) God Bless You all.  May you find the love and peace you so deserve.

The goal of this hop is to spread awareness as far and wide as possible.  Early detection is key.  It is so important for both women and men to take initiative and get them squished!  Your loved ones will also appreciate it. 


We are here today to share a special set with you called HOPE.
 Paper Smooches is donating 50% of each HOPE stamp set sold to The National Breast Cancer Foundation

This special stamp set will be available to purchase starting today and like all of our other stamps. it will not retire.  You will find it HERE

Please check all five design team blogs to see what they created with this timeless stamp set.

For my card today, I used several of the ribbon images and heat embossed them with either clear or white embossing powder, to create my flower in varying shades of pink (Hibiscus Burst, Sweet Blush & Raspberry Fizz).  Just a sweet, simple card that let's my recipient know that I care... :)

Have a great one!
