Paper Pretties Cause and Crafty Ho's Challenge

So today is Sunday which means that it's time for another Crafty Ho's Challenge! That's right, a great group of friends of mine, the 'Ho's', created a challenge blog called Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog! Each week on Sunday we share with everyone more creations using the same challenge as inspiration! This week we are challenging you to create a card using the picture below as inspiration!If you haven't heard yet Paper Pretties is offering a fabulous Easter digi stamp set for only $7 all of the proceeds from the sale of this set (minus Paypal fees) will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure for Alex and everyone else suffering from this disease! Here is what Heather said about this fabulous cause:


My good friend Chava (who I've known for more than 30 years) has a 3 1/2 year old son, Alex. Shortly after Alex was born, he was diagnosed with having Cystic Fibrosis. For those of you unfamiliar with CF here is a brief description:

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that: clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

Here is where the exciting part comes in...one of our Paper Pretties illustrators, Joni Stringfield, has drawn an ADORABLE Easter set called EASTER BABIES. We will be selling this set as a DIGITAL IMAGE SET. All of the proceeds from the sale of this set (minus Paypal fees) will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure for Alex and everyone else suffering from this disease!

If you get the chance, I would suggest picking up this set, you get so many adorable images and it all goes towards a fabulous cause, plus only $7, what a deal! Here is the proof of all that you get in this great set! For my card today I used the larger image of the three bunnies and the cute little chicks too! I also used my Dizzy Doily which makes such a pretty design, I thought it worked so well with the sweet Easter images and these bring colors.

Be sure to check out the rest of our great group of Hos, I know their creations will be fabulous!

You are going to love these ladies and all of their creations and I can't wait to see what you create along with us! Hope to see you back here next Sunday for our next challenge! Have a wonderful day all!
