MHKDesigns: Here For You SURPRISE Blog Hop!


Hello, my friends!  Welcome to a SPECIAL SURPRISE blog hop for my dear friend, Julie Odil!  Julie was recently diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma, so this hop is our was of letting her know that we are here for her.  You should have come here from the MHKDesigns blog.  If you didn't, please hop over to THIS POST for a complete list of participants!

Along with this hop, there is a special release digital stamp set and paper pack from the MHKDesigns Etsy shop designed specifically for sending get well cards to those struggling with different forms of cancer.  The colors of the paper pack are lavender (all cancers awareness), lime green (lymphoma awareness), pink (breast cancer awareness), teal (ovarian cancer awareness), and peach (cervical cancer awareness).  Take a peek at these products...



I used these two products to make a card for Julie.  I was inspired by the hop banner, as well.  Come see the completed card...


I printed an image from the Get Well Flowers digital stamp set onto white cardstock, then colored it in with colored pencils.  I added some Diamond Stickles for a bit of shine and texture (hard to photograph, sorry!), as well as some faux stitching.  The sentiment, also from the Get Well Flowers digital stamp set, was printed onto velum before being added over the top of the image panel.


The card base was prepped with some faux stitched papers from the Get Well Flowers digital paper pack.  These papers were also faux stitched to match the sentiment panel.  A doily and a smattering of rhinestones finished off this creation.   I hope that you love this card, Julie--it was made especially for YOU!


Julie, all of us are here for YOU during this difficult time, my friend!  You are so loved, and I want you to know that many prayers are being sent upwards for you.  I hope you feel our love today as you hop around and see what we all have in store for you!

Inside of my card.



Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I know that Julie needs our support now more than ever, so let's band together and show her that we are here for her!  Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Asha.  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
