Strength & Hope Campaign - and my first Mojo Monday

As part of our Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! is proud to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the Strength & Hope Campaign.  Throughout the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog sales period starting May 1st, Stampin' Up! will donate $2  from the sale of each Strength & Hope set and Strength & Hope digital kit to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).  Be looking for your Summer Mini in the mail any day now, ask me for your very own copy or check my blog on May1st to see it for yourself.  I'm sure each of us know at least one person who is fighting this disease and these people need cards more than anyone. For more information about BCRF, visit

I am hosting a Strength & Hope Stamp Camp fundraiser on Tuesday, May 31st at 6:00 pm at the Oil City YWCA.  Participants will create six cards (two of three designs) using their own Strength & Hope stamp set.  My personal sales commission will go to the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" program.  This money will stay in the Western PA region and directly assist breast cancer patients.  Please contact me for more information.

I am combining Mojo Monday with this new set (my first Mojo Monday, too):

Here's my version:

Here is a photo of my almost six year-old Dide (pronounced Dee-da, a Dutch name) posing with the card.  You can also see where I usually take my photos: on the back of the couch in natural lighting. 
Stamps: Strength & Hope, Tiny Tags
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, Soft Suede
Ink: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot, Tasteful Trim die, Square Lattice textured impressions embossing folder, Medium Jewelry Tag punch, Crumb Cake seam binding, Vintage Trinkets, linen thread, pearls

I wish all of you a very happy Easter!  Please enjoy the time you spend with family and friends and remember the real reason we celebrate Easter.

Happy stamping!
