I have a mate (Hi Andrew) who was diagnosed with cancer when he was 9. He had his leg removed and now walks with a prospectic leg. He always talks about how he wouldn't have got through it as well as he did if it wasn't for the help and support he got from Camp Quality and Canteen. I really hope this tiny gesture helps these kids and there families even by putting a smile on there face.
If you would like to help out by making some cards for this more than worthy organisation please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment and I will give you all the details you need.
Thanks for looking

Here is a close up of the embossing. I embossed in Ballet blue with clear embossing powder and then brayered taken with teal ink over the top.
Stamp Set: Simply Delights (From Simply Sent Kit)
Cardstock: Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal
Ink: Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal, Versamark
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, White gel pen, Mat Pack, Hemp Twine, 1" 1/2 and 1" 3/8 Square Punches, Brayer
Thanks For Looking!

I don't know why I do this to myself. I sit down at my craft desk to get stuff done, No ones home. I'm distraction free and I think to myself hey I haven't checked Kristina's MACM yet only to find out she has posted a new colour challenge. I then can't resist and make a card frantically trying to ensure I get in before the cut off day and time only to find out... I read the date and time wrong and I'm actually submitting like the 15th card or something! Don't I feel like a doofus?!?!
Here are the stunning (yet a little out of my comfort zone) Autumn colours and inspiration photo... Choc Chip (Mmmm Chocolate... I just started a diet and haven't eaten chocolate in over a week! I'm dieing) Bravo Burgundy, Pumpkin Pie (Mmmm Pie!), So Saffron and Old Olive
So here is the card I threw together without too much thought or effort because I wanted to play with the colours but knew I had a million more important things that I should be doing.
Stamp Set: In the Spotlight, Priceless
Cardstock: Choc Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: So Saffron, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy
Accessories: Paper Piercer, Corner rounder, Choc Chip Grosgrain, So Saffron Brads, Bravo Burgundy Button
Technique: Rock n Roll
A big shout out of congrats to my mate Kylie and the rest of the Gliders from the Australia Women's Wheelchair Basketball team on winning a Bronze medal in Beijing! All you need is a gold in London Kylie and you've got the set! I know you girls can do it! Great work
Anywho I must be off, my bed is desperatly calling my name. I have been working myself a little hard lately I think!

These colours are a little out of my comfort zone as are alot of Kristina's as I am NOT a pink person. I like it on cards but I am not really a pink person. I have also never used Bravo Burgundy so I was a little stumped!
I made 2 cards. I had all these ideas and they didn't work together so I made 2! The first I'm not all that fond of but It looks better in the photo, which doesn't always happen. It took a long time to complete and all these things happened whilst creating it that I just got a little fed up... Here's what the result was.
Stamp Set: In the Spotlight, Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Bravo Burgundy
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Soft Sky Ribbon, Bravo Burgundy Button, Sponges
Technique: Embossing resist
The second card I have changed the colours slightly. If my order had arrived I would have been ok but cos it didn't I had no more soft sky CS and I don't own the ink pad. So I substituted for Bashful Blue and did some watercolouring. Here's what I came up with...
Stamp Set: A little bit of happiness, Polka Dot background
Cardstock:Bashful Blue, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Watercolouring Paper
Ink: Bashful Blue, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Bravo Burgundy
Accessories: Regal Rose wide ribbon, Bashful Blue Brads, Bravo Burgundy button, Aqua Painters, Corner rounder
So, which of the 2 do you like better? Let me know by commenting below before 19th September and I will chose a comment at random and send that lucky person a handmade card. Demonstrators included, overseas is fine!
Thanks for looking! Happy Stampin'
