Repurposing a Card Kit for Cancer

I never did finish the last 2 cards from the Sept. Kit of the Month but I finally used one of the cards to make one for the 300 card goal that FSJ has challenged to collect for cancer.  (Boy, that was quite the sentence....)

I used the text from the Be Brave set and the heart from the Bloom With Heart set (free with the make 'n take at a Scrapbook Expo but unavailable for purchase.)  Also used in this card are Lemon Drop, Hazelnut Blend, Basic Pastels Paper Pack, and Whip Cream card stocks, Black Licorice and Bubble Gum inks, Cocoa Powder Satin Ribbon, Journey Rectangle Long dies, Journey Glaze, and Sparkle Dust glitter.

I had trouble getting the glitter to show on the heart.  I did get the glaze to really shine, though.

I hope to get some more cards made this week along with a couple cards I need for swaps. 

We spent this past weekend on a little trip to Tombstone and Willcox, AZ.  Helldorado Days were happening in Tombstone.  Fabulous late 1800's western costumes were being worn by so many there!  Many western-type shows were being put on and even a couple weddings!  From there we went to Willcox and went to Apple Annie's.  We rode the hay ride, picked a couple pumpkins, at BBQ, and managed with corn maze.  I haven't yet downloaded the photos but we had a blast!  We bought some apple cider donuts (6), Apple bread, and some other goodies.  We had gorgeous weather while home got hammered with electrical storms.

Hope you had a fabulous weekend.  This was the first time away for 8 months.  Hope the next time doesn't take so long.

Tombstone! I told hubby I wanted to go there and he said, "OKay, I'll tell my mom" and suddenly I didn't want to go anymore--hmmm?! That was awhile ago but I would have loved to have been for Helldorado Days. It sounds like you had a lot of fun at both places.

Your cards is great, love that puffy shiny heart!
