Gina K Designs inspirational hop day three and an announcement

 Welcome!
Today I have a card to share from Gina K’s newest release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team today  –  And make sure to check out all the new stamps on the All New page!! 
 My first card uses the new Free with Three set- thank you's are quickly becoming a necessity in my house!  Quick clean and simple card here using the Postage Stamp die.  The flowers are stamped in kraft ink, and a few pearls to finish it off-

 This next card uses Tami's new set Gnome One like You.  I pulled out the copics for this one- The green piece across uses the new Spellbinders Edgeabilities.  That "Hey Gnomie" sentiment is so fun!


  thanks for stopping by- Make sure to check out the rest of the team today as well!


And, finally- this will be my last hop with the team for a while- I have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will be taking some time to handle it.  I don't plan on giving up paper and ink and all that goes with it though!  I will need some creative therapy time, I will share stuff when I can and craft when my schedule allows for it, which doesn't seem to be in the cards just yet- which seems to be obvious with the super simple cards this week!!
thanks for being a FABULOUS supporter
I look forward to being healthy and playing full time again SOON
Pin It Now!

AJ...I have been under a rock but saw the FB posts and decided to pop in on your blog. I am so sorry your are fighting this fight....
But, I know you are strong and you will get through this. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

Carly said...

Oh AJ, I'm just catching up on my blogs after taking time off for holidays and can't believe I am reading this. My cousin had breast cancer a few years back, her family was very young at the time and she spent a lot of her time with them, saying she got her strength to fight from the hugs of her two little boys. You get your hugs every day from your little munchkins and fill your heart with their love, it will give you the strength to fight it and win. My cousin made it and you too are strong. Sending big hugs your way.

JenMarie said...
