Attitude Makes a Difference!

I mentioned in yesterday's post (see below if you are here for the Hop(e) for Breast Cancer Awareness) that I was going to be focusing on Breast Cancer Awareness for the weekend.  I pulled out a Sunshine Stamps sentiment which can be found at the store (click the words Sunshine Stamps).  I think this sentiment is perfect for anyone going through a difficult situation.  I also created this for MMSC25 found HERE.  Sometimes I struggle with finding a card that I am happy with using these sketches- usually because they are so detailed and I am not, by nature, a detailed person on my cards- I like simple yet nice ones.  However, this sketch, while still detailed, allowed me to be simple as well and let the message shine.  So, thanks MMSC crew for your inspiration, thanks Sunshine for a fabulous sentiment, and thank you to all of you have had been touched by breast cancer in some way.



Recipe:
Stamp- Sunshine Stamps-Attitude
Paper- Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, white
accessories- clip, ribbon (martha stewart and satin, pearls, punches, cuttlebug

The satin ribbon and pearls were purchased at LimeLIGHT.  Mandy is GREAT and super fast!  Great customer service!

Now, I was going to post this on Monday but I want to give a full week for you to post so I am going to post some blog candy now.  I will have the opportunity for three different candies.

Candy #1- 1-15 posts
This will be a pile of variety of dsp from SU to BG to anything in between, along with some buttons and ribbons.

Candy #2- 16-30 posts
This will be ribbon, embellishments, a few stamps, dsp, alterables, and three Sunshine Stamps images of your choice (my treat)

Candy #3- 31+ posts
This will be for a $15 gift certificate to the craft/stamp place of your choice.  It can be online or it can be a brick and mortar store such as M's, JA's, HL, or ACMoore (no Archivers here though).  

So, what do you have to do to get the candy?  Sunshine is looking for more quotes/verses/sentiments.  If you have any sentiments, quotes, or Bible verses that you would love to see available- post them here.  Now, from 1 post to 15 candy one will be offered.  If we get 16-30 posts candy one and two will be offered and if we get over 30- candy three will go in the mix also.  You have ONE WEEK- until Saturday, November 7, to post them.  Post as many as you like- one quote/verse per post please.  Also- if you post a Bible verse- please type it out in the version you like and post what version it is.  I, personally, use ESV and it's a bit different than say, NKJV.  Anyway, hope you will participate and I hope to get some pics of the blog candy up soon!

Lovely, lovely card. Pink is my favorite color and so this just tickles me pink and I totally agree with the sentiment. Attitude is the only thing in this world you can control. The MMDesign Team thanks you for playing with me in this weeks challenge and we will be looking for you next week too!!

The ladies have all said what I wanted to say, however, I would like to say your take on the sketch is awesome and your ribbons are perfect. I love the details on this card...they are just enough not to detract from the sentiment but to only enhance it...that takes talent! and you have bucket loads of it! :)
