FS200: A time for reflection!

BEFORE I GET TO THIS WEEK'S FEATURED STAMPER, Please do me a huge favor and CONTINUE to VOTE FOR HANNAH'S HOPE FUND in the month of December! Last month, they went to #2 on the last day (they were in the money) and in the last 15 minutes, fell out of second place to #3. It was HEARTWRENCHING! Her parents, Lori & Matt are physically and emotionally spent. Instead of spending December getting out the vote, their friends and family are taking up the cause for them to create a HOLIDAY MIRACLE!

They are still 1.2 million dollars shy of being able to start the clinical trials and the $250,000 from Pepsi would really put a dent into the massive bill! Hannah is a six year old, first grader in Xavier's class. She is the sweetest little girl. Her parents are good friends who live in the next neighborhood over. Todd and I have taken up this cause, it is very close to my heart. Please take a moment from your stamping to vote for Hannah! Her life will be forever changed by the generosity of strangers! You can help make miracles happen!

#1 Vote for Hannah's Hope Fund today please!
#2: Vote again on Pepsi using your Facebook login.
#3: Vote on Facebook at:
#4: Text 104051 to 73774.
#5: Vote on your iPhone.

Think about how you can help out - spread the word! Reflect on all the wonderful things in your life and how simple (and FREE) this cause is and YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

(and here we go!!!) FS200!

This week's Featured Stampers are the previous 199! Choose from ANYONE on {the list}.
Try and select someone who you have not cased before, or if you have done ALL 199 (I bow to you) - try and choose a card to case which you have not previously cased.

I chose PrincessHeather, from week 185 (FS185)!

Here is the card I made:

I changed the colors (to red, blue) and the theme to winter, removed the ribbon, added cord and used dry pressure embossing.

I loved the three cherries and the sentiment in the corner, so I used some poppy paper for the base, added a layer bashful blue with some swiss dots on the next layer, then stamped the ornament hanger in smokey shadow directly on the white. I stamped the pure poppy ornaments (circle) on white cardstock and then trimmed them out and popped them up on dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in the corner, added some silver cord and then added some stickles to sparkle up the ornaments and hangers.

Simple and cute! THANKYOUVERYMUCH! (in my best Elvis voice).

In all seriousness, "tis the season" of hope and miracles. Please consider voting EVERYDAY for HHF in the Pepsi Refresh Challenge. What would you do for your child if they were dying! I would do anything, so I am helping get the word out for Hannah. Please share this with your friends and family this holiday season!

God Bless!
