7 Kids College Fund blog hop featuring DoCrafts


Today  my fellow 7 Kids College Fund Design Team members and I have put together a blog hop for you loaded with crafty goodness featuring DoCraft products from the store!  


Though I made this card and set up the blog post a week ago, I am back in here editing the post this morning as it struck me how appropriate this card is for a day like today here in the Boston area.  It has been a heart wrenching week for all Americans, but having this happen in your own back yard is surreal.   My heart goes out to the victims of the senseless crime and their grieving families, the first responders who saved so many lives, and the amazing police officers, state troopers, FBI agents, and the National Guard members who methodically tracked down these twisted shells of human beings who did this to us.  You are our heros.  Boston stands strong!  If you have not seen this yes, please watch.  It'll give you goose bumps.


Here's my card featuring the Wellington 8x8 Clear Stamp and Wellington 6x6 paper pad:


And I have to show you the inside of the card because this sentiment from the stamp set is so sweet!



I stamped the image in Momento tuxedo black ink onto X-Press It blending card and colored it with copics.  I fussy cut the image and layer it over some of the patterned  paper.  I added some natural jute and used that little tag stamp and sentiment from the stamp set.  

hair -  E35, E53, E51
skin - E11, E21, E00
dress - BV25, BV23, BV20

  23. I found your card on Pinterest and I love it! So much so that I searched for the stamp set and purchased it today! I too, am from Boston. Born in Cambridge and raised and still live in Somerville I have never been more proud of being a Bostonian than I am/was this past week. This card, I think, portrays what we all need once in a while........a great big hug from a friend. Thank you for sharing the card. It was just what I needed to smile again.

  24. Most of essay idea might be how the 1st relief of these spot seemed to be caused by college essay examples a nearby goldmine. Linked ideas might be how the area thrived for the reason that platinum assets ended up considerable as well as effortlessly mined.
