Crafting with a Purpose

I was hoping to have had this posted this past weekend like I eluded to, but LIFE HAPPENS! So things didn’t go exactly as I planned. Go figure – plans going awry. Anyway…back to your regularly scheduled program.

I wanted a card with a general theme because this card is going to be given as part of Jen’s blog tart goodness (aka blog candy) which has a philanthropic edge to it. You can check out the details here. I encourage any and all to play…it’s even better because you’ll be crafting with a purpose.

I have been choppin’ at the bit to use this Fluffles stamp because it is so freakin’ CUTE! At first, I was having a hard time figuring out how I was going to use it, because a sentiment didn’t just jump out at me…but then it hopped out at me…get it? Grasshopper and hoppin’ – so go together. I know it’s corny, but I think it’s cute. I thought the most recent SCS Sketch (SC210) layout would fit best and I think it does. Let me know what you think.

'til I craft again or have something to say...
