Happy Thursday friends! EEEKKKK! I leave at 6 am tomorrow morning for San Jose and I have soooooooo much to do today (per the usual lol). My main work is all done but as always its laundry, packing and organizing supplies. I also had to trash a suitcase—yep too many miles on it and zippers are broke and it looks like its been thru WW3 LOL! TSA is not very nice to luggage eh’—so I’m off to buy a hardcase suitcase today which I’m hoping is still on sale LOL! We’ll see how long that one lasts, poor things! And I’m flying Southwest so I will fly to Denver first and then onto San Jose and yep I have to rent a car. I’m taking MY Garmin GPS this time so I’m hoping it doesn’t lead me up to Seattle or Canada in my travels this time LOL. I already have that funny buzzy feeling that something is gonna happen (shhh I won’t go into how I think I’m slightly pyschic, yes I really do) but I’m PRAYIN’ its funny stuff not the BAD stuff KWIM. I don’t want to be involved in any kind of newsworthy or tragic event---I’m only up for fun kind of stuff ok I say to the higher ups somewhere up there LOL. Hubby likes to poo-poo my psychic abilities at times but even he has to admit that I am right on the money with my predictions 95% of the time! YIKES—so stay tuned for all that!! And yes Suzanne is setting up her mobile office in the airport in the morning and you can follow me on Facebook cuz I usually am there posting weird stuff and funny pics along the way! Hey I gotta keep myself entertained at all times LOL! So for those in CA, I’ll see y’all soon And you can come to a Copics class with me too---go to www.cmcroad.com for all the locations and info!
Ok---I love, love music—you know this right? I spend so much at ITunes that it ain’t even funny--LOL! Then YOU MUST listen to this beautiful new song by Christina Perri HERE. Its haunting and beautiful! I’ll share another fave with you tomorrow LOL!

So today the Gina K DT is sharing some sneaky peeky samples of the NEW RELEASES which will be up for sale after the release party this evening! I cannot be at the party this evening (boo hoo) because hopefully I will be in bed at a decent hour since I have to be at the airport at 4:15 am tomorrow morning (ugh—double ugh). But I am happily sharing my project made with Theresa Momber’s AWESOME set for Gina K called “Strength & Hope”. A portion of Theresa’s profits will go to Breast Cancer Research for the first month of sales---so go buy this set for sure.
I know for most of you, like myself know someone personally or thru a friend or co-worker that is battling breast cancer. I have quite a few DT sisters and friends going thru this battle right now. So purchase this set, help out and do your part—we women will ALL benefit from more research. One in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetimes! That means for every 8 of your friends or female relatives its possible that one of you will develop breast cancer---that is SCARY stuff!! So please be proactive, do self-checks and visit your doctor regularly (and teach your teen daughter’s how to start this too---I am teaching my daughter to be proactive).
So I love, love this set “Strength & Hope”—it is awesome in so many ways! I chose to use both this awesome sentiment by Ralph Waldo Emerson and the fabulous butterfly that incorporates the cancer ribbon. The sentiment was cut out using the fabulous die set from Spellbinders called “Twisted Metal Tags & Accents”. I love the shape and swirls—you know how I love my curly-q’s LOL! The In the Navy cs from Gina K was embossed with a CB folder. I kept the color palette to just navy and cream with a touch of light pink on the ribbon for an elegant look. The pearls were made with my Viva Décor Pearl Pen in Cream.
I stamped the butterfly in navy Memento ink and then colored the ribbon in Copic Color R20. The whole butterfly got a thick coat of Stickles in Stardust and then while it was wet I sprinkled my fave Deco Art Glamour Dust on top for extra bling-i-ness!! So I have a special friend that I will be sending this to next week, hopefully it will cheer them and keep them strong in their fight!
