Sending Some (Sprouts & Haiti) Wishes....
I am loving this color combo right now!!! It's everywhere! At TE's Valentine's Kits. And at Club Anya's Wild Card Wednesday.
But what's ironic is I am actually showcasing this card for Club Anya's first Sketchy Saturday. Not for the color combo challenge above :).
Amy's new Sprouts creations at TGF are TOO CUTE! And all four actually match perfectly with my four friends who have upcoming birthdays for the next two months!
This Stella one is for my friend, T, who just happened to cut her hair! She has the most wonderful sense of style and she loves feminine dresses. I decided to color Stella in a more vintage-y kind of way -- dark hair, light skin. By adding the striped PP (DCWV) to the October Afternoon PP (especially the cherry one!), i thought it looked retro. Finished it off with an InkSpelled button and some Martha Stewart baker's twine. I just love Stella's lips! Already formed into a kiss!
On another note, T is a nurse just like I am. Right now, American Airlines is sending doctors and nurses to Haiti for free to help out with the earthquake victims. I've always wanted to help out with a humanitarian cause in a third world country (i've been drawn to those poor cleft palate patients who would otherwise have no hope). Alas, being a new mother who's baby is still getting breast milk, I have little chance to go.
However, I have donated money. I feel that even though our country is in a recession right now, it is still doing better than our neighbors around the world. The poor flood victims of the Philippines have suffered as well.
Then I came across Pioneer Woman's post for today. And her 'blog candy' is a chance to win $500 towards your charity of choice to help the Haitians. And she is donating 10 cents for every comment today. So please, please visit her blog link above. I know that my post is pretty late, but I just went to PW's blog and she's up to 17,500 comments! I know we can do better!
P.S. Thanks, Sunghee, for relaying me to Pioneer Woman. The Bokeh contest finalists are the most inspiring photography I've seen!!! If you love photography and miss Christmas like I do, that post is a MUST to visit!
