I Feel the Love Project!

Happy Sunday All!

Well today I am sharing with you a card that I made for a very specific reason!  Sweet Maddison over at I Feel the Love Project is doing an awesome card charity this month that is near and dear to my heart, since it is a dear family friend that is being honored!

Her cause this month is to make a card for a very special dad that has been undergoing some hardships and needs some TLC  to help lift his spirit.  Sadly, my friend Reggie fits the bill.  He is watching his 22 year-old daughter battle a rare form of pediatric cancer for a second time in her life.  The first battle was when she was five and she lost her kidney during that battle.  This time around she is battling an unrelated form of rare cancer with only one kidney.  This is a very close knit family and if one hurts, they all hurt and they are all in it together with Reggie and his wife being the first to carry the burden of it all.

He has such a positive outlook and and being an Electrician, I thought he would get a kick out of  this card I made using my Silhouette, some twine and great paper from Paper Issues (Glitz- Cashmere Dame), buttons and some random wire I had lying around.  I did some faux stitching and distressed the die cuts and card with Close to My Heart Slate and White Daisy.

Please head over and check out all the details of this month’s cause and I hope you can find time to LINK up a card for him as a form of encouragement, I would love just overwhelm him with so many cards!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “just crafting for a good friend” pie with me!

Happy Geek Week!

So late last night I randomly found out that this week has been National Engineers Week!   Being married to a Mechanical Engineer, I had to have fun with this even though it is now Friday and the week is almost over. I tossed together some cupcake batter and popped them in the oven and grabbed some heavy cream, powder sugar and some gel food coloring and made a quick frosting.

While the cupcakes were baking, I whipped out some fun cupcake toppers totally on the fly using my Silhouette Cameo.  I found the Pi image online and imported, printed, and cut them in less than 10 minutes. Then I made the argyle sentiment toppers using the tools and color patterns that came stock on my Silhouette software in about 10 minutes as well.  I  have to say I L-O-V-E my Silhouette!  The cupcake toppers were done just as the cupcakes were ready to come out of the oven! PicMonkey CollageThe hubs is pretty happy to have a fun little treat to bring to the rest of the “Nerd Herd”.  I am super happy I could throw this together so quickly to close out a week that honors their genius innovation and brilliance and total logical approach they bring to the world.   The funny thing is, I don’t think any of them have any idea that this week exists nor do they really care, but they will love the fact it is a reason to get cupcakes! 🙂

Thanks for sharing a piece of “honoring the Nerd Herd” pie with me.
