Hello! The Reverse Confetti DT has teamed up today with Jennifer McGuire to have a blog hop in honor of our fearless leader, Jen del Muro. :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Audrey's blog, but if you'd like to start at the beginning, please follow the link to head on over to Susan's blog.
For anyone visiting today who isn't familiar with Jen's story, here's a little background:
Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer toward the end of last year. She's been dealt a pretty bad hand as far as the treatment for her type of aggressive cancer, but the prognosis is good. This year will be quite the journey and battle, but she is a strong and very motivated woman. She's done lots of reading up on how she can take on a positive role in fighting her cancer from all angles, including diet and exercise. With only a couple of treatments under her belt so far, she is looking and feeling good, and plans to keep it that way! Her mantra has become a viral hashtag among her friends and crafty peers - #beastmode - and it totally fits Jen's personality! We love her!
I've been fortunate to a part of the Reverse Confetti DT since the beginning, and it goes without saying that I am a huge fan of Jen's! :) She is one of the kindest and most generous people I've had the pleasure to design for, she's truly a beautiful person inside and out. Jen gives everything 100%, and I'm sure this will be no different! ♥♥♥ You've got this, girlie!!! ♥♥♥ My heart and prayers are with you, always.
Here's a quick run down of my card... I started by adding a piece of dark coral CS to a white card base, then topped it with a die cut from white CS using the Big Stripes Cover Panel. Next, I used the Lacy Scallop Frame on white CS, then stamped it with one of the sentiments from You're So. I then stamped the flowers and leaves from Blooms 'n Buds, and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I cut a banner strip from gray CS, and topped it with a sentiment die cut from the You're So Confetti Cuts. To finish up, I die cut two outline leaves using the Wheat CCs on yellow CS, then assembled the banner and flowers grouping before embellishing with coral enamel dots.
Thanks for hopping along with us today... Next up is Amy's blog.
Have a great one!
