Women Are Like Teabags...

Welcome to the Studio!

I want to invite each and every one of you to visit the Link Up For Pink website.  Not only visit, but join the linking party and post a card or project.  The only must be pink, of course.  Also, there's tons of awesome prizes to win, but that isn't the best part.  Let's all work together and find a cure for Breast Cancer!

My mom, Joanie, of Joanie's Classy Card Corner, is a DT member over at Link Up For Pink.  My mom is a cardmaking dynamo!  She's amazing and is giving away blog candy, so stop over and leave her some love.  She has been asking me to make a "pink card" for several months now.  I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with a good idea and it finally hit me...

So while I was sipping a cup of tea (no kidding) at my scrap desk, I found some lovely pink paper.  It's definitely a "stash" item.  I purchased two packs of this Making Memories paper on clearance at Target, like five years ago.  The stamps, die, and embossing folder are all new...well, at least newer than the paper.  I've been itching to use this teacup stamp set since I got it and everything just came together perfectly.
I fussy-cut the teacup after I stamped it and used a real coffee filter to make my teabag so it would look and feel authentic;)  Here is a closeup of my teabag and tag...
I wanted to make a breast cancer card for someone who is fighting the battle and encourage them not to give up.  I'm extremely fortunate that I'm making this card for someone I don't even know.  It will be given to our friend, Meg, who volunteers at our local cancer center.  For any of you who have been touched by this disease, my prayers are with you!
The quote on the inside of the card is by Eleanor Roosevelt and reads, "A woman is like a teabag...You never know how strong it is until it's in hot water."
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time, Scrap Sassy and PINK!
